Tips for an Easy Des Plaines Move
Have snacks at the ready
Moving day is very long and very exhausting. To have the necessary energy to make it through without feeling awful, pack some snacks and keep them nearby. That way, you’ll be able to fight off hunger and provide yourself (and anyone else involved) with some much-needed boost.
Take a picture of assembled items
Take pictures of furniture, cords, and electronics before you disassemble or disconnect them. This will help you set everything up faster at your new place and keep yours from having to remember how you made it all work in the first place.
Place seasonal items in plastic bins
Items that you only use once a year can be stored in bins instead of boxes. Bins will save you a lot of time when packing and make managing your belongings more efficient. They can also be the last things unpacked in your new place because you won’t need them for a while.
Leave unneeded items where they are
We know about the boxes sitting in the attic and the garage. If you can’t remember the last time those boxes were opened or you actually can’t even remember what’s in them, chances are you don’t need them in the first place. Don’t take those boxes with you to your new home.
If you want to enhance the interior of your new house or make sure the furniture fitting with you can fit in it, knowing the measurements is a good idea. Items that looked good at the old place may make the new one feel stuffy or just may not be as good of a fit. Anything that can’t fit can be left behind.
Backup computer files
Backup all your important files on your laptop and computer if they are being moved. Accidents happen during moves, be ready by having a copy of your hard drive.

Chicago isn’t too far away

Square Deal Shoe Store
This family-run shop has a secret: there’s an antique shoe museum that houses shoes dating back to the early 1900s. It has the shoes of the world’s tallest man and is home to a fluoroscope, the machine that took x-rays of feet. Visitors are able to have their shoes fit personally, but can still shop current brands. The cash register is the original and must be used until it breaks; it hasn’t yet. You’ll love the vintage vibe the family has worked to keep up.
Busy Beaver Button Museum
Though the name may leave your tongue twisted, this company makes buttons for companies across the entire nation. Located in Chicago, see thousands of buttons in their collection, musing over the intricate details. Some are encased, but others are on the walls and desks where workers can be viewed making new buttons in real-time. You’ll learn the history of buttons and the effort that goes into those tiny little things.
