Moving tips from the veteran of 6 moves in 11 years:

1. If you haven't used it, worn it, or taken it out of a box in a year or more, give it to charity. Somebody out there needs that purple velvet miniskirt way more than you do.

2. If it's covered in an inch of dust, #1 probably applies. If it has "sentimental" value, take a picture of it for the scrapbook and then get rid of it.

3. Really, who needs 72 pairs of shoes? I'm not admitting anything here . . .

4. If the moving company only sends TWO PEOPLE to pack up FOURTEEN THOUSAND pounds of household goods, TRY NOT TO PANIC. Calling the company and shouting words like "asswipe" will probably not help. As much as you may be tempted to.

5. Whoever invents chocolate-covered valium will make a zillion dollars.

Poor baby. My mother's years in child education led her to believe the spray valium was a worthwhile investment.
