Episode 30. Moving House - Lessons Learnt From Our Simultaneous Moves

If you follow us on Instagram it’ll be impossible not to have noticed that we’ve both recently moved house.

(We only talk about it non stop! Ha!)

Moving into our new homes has been a huge milestone in our twenties, and we have learnt SO much about the ups and downs of the moving process.  

From the practicalities of packing up your possessions and carting them across to your new place, through to those first few weeks in your new home, we feel like we’ve had a vertical learning curve!

In this episode we’re opening up about the ins and outs of our house moves, and sharing our top lessons learnt for navigating your own moves with more ease. 

Moving home is harder than we both anticipated, and we would love to be able to help you to be more prepared than we were. And to enjoy the whole process more!

This episode is perfect for anyone about to move house, someone thinking of doing so, or anyone struggling with their own move.
