Menu Plan Monday - August 10, 2009

Toby, the Wonder Dog, and his sidekick, Marcus

It's Back to School Month for our family. Our son is a senior this year and attending a distance learning public school program. We'll be replacing his computer tower and purchasing school clothes this month.

I decided to increase our food budget, by $200 a month and cut down on the dining out. Charles and Marcus love to eat out but I'm tired of the expense. Theres no leftovers and Marcus is usually still hungry. We'll see how our family adjust to this change.

Do It Yourself Moving and Packing Tips

The BerryMorins would like to share some suggestions to make your Do It Yourself move go well.

Suggestion 1: Make a reservation - don't assume that there's plenty of trucks available for your move. Some areas, like Las Vegas, have a shortage of equipment.

Suggestion 2: Have your vehicle checked before your move. We had a customer,who had towed her vehicle, try and start her car and the battery was dead. She admitted that she hadn't driven it in several months. She had to keep the truck and tow dolly an extra day so she could get her vehicle to a dealership. $$$$

Suggestion 3: Make sure you have plenty of extra money for your move. Remember you have to return the truck full, you have to eat, pay for a place to stay and possibly have emergencies along the way. We had a customer's wife arrive with a sprained ankle. They had to take her to a clinic and he was concerned about expenses.

Suggestion 4: Hire additional help - We cannot tell you how many times people have flake…
