    Use decals to decorate wallls! There are lots of different styles and are easily removable. And family photos in frames. Both can easily make your new house a home.

    Some practical tips: 1) Take advantage of any service transfering programs that your utilities and post office offer. 2) Use those big rubber storage bins with lids to store and move things - great for heavy things or fragile things. 3) Label and organize everything. 4) Find a few great restaurants nearby and try them out. Also find the nearest park. Visiting these places can give you a sense of the area quickly.

    Hope that helps!

    Moving is something people have to do in search of a better life.We always had friends help us with the stuff and there was always a lot since we never left anything behind.You kind of get used to it but I can tell you one thing,at some point you have to say ?enough?and settle somewhere,for the good of your children and yourself.

    Ditto to what MG Singh said! However, half the fun of being in a new place is acquiring new things specific to the area, so be sensible about your purchases.

    I also agree with sunbun 143 about framed family photos and big rubber storage bins.  I took the family photo thing one step further and acquired a few frames that have a two-page photo album in the back.

    The best advice I can add, though, is settle on a decorating style and furniture arrangements that'll work anywhere, and **condense, condense, condense**.  Frequently-transferred military families have this one down pat.  Confine decorating purchases to items that can do double (or triple) duty.  For instance, a footstool that doubles as blanket, game or DVD storage. If you have a lot of books, get stackable cubes that can double as book shelves AND book carriers at moving time, so you don't have to re-box the books. Also, furniture that breaks down easily or fold up. Under-the-bed containers for out-of-season items save packing at moving time, too.
