10 ways to make sure you don't go insane when you're moving

Going through the escrow process can be stressful when you're buying a home. Once you do, you get the privilege of living in the home you've worked so hard for. But first, you have to move. Ugh.

When thing start to go wrong—you don't have room in your last remaining box for the rest of the guest room knickknacks, your mover just dropped the box with your champagne glasses in it, or your labeling pen just ran out—there's one thing that can help: just breathe.
