The big day is here! You know, we were all young once too. And we can remember the day our parents decided to move us, a family of six, one hot summer like it was yesterday. Four children all under 7 years old, clamoring and clobbering on furniture and jumping in the way of the adults carrying a couch that was possibly older than Grandpa.

Moving without money or a job is stressful, but with the right amount of planning it can be managed.
