Moving Advice, Please!?!

Anybody have any moving advice? This is our 2nd move with the military but it will be a lot different from our first....we were staying with family and most of our stuff was in storage last time. This time we are renting a house and have nothing in storage. To top it off, last time I had about 3 months to prepare. This time, 3 WEEKS! I'm freaking out!

Any tips, tricks, or advice would be GREATLY APPRECIATED!!!

Hopefully? We just got our orders today and the TMO closed early where my dh is today (because they like to make me stress, apparently). It usually takes 3 weeks for the paperwork to go through and we have to leave in 3 weeks.

Feed your movers and have ice cold water on hand for them.

If TMO does it  take pictures of ALL expensive stuff... take all pictures from walls and unplug eletronics. Double and triple check all paperwork

If your moving CONUS to CONUS I would just do a partial dity and take all your smaller electronics with you.

Also put aside your passports, all financial documents, birth certs, SS#'s, and the like and carry them with you.

Do a partial DItY, photograph everything, and breathe. If you have to be there that soon, they will fit you in. We only had a few weeks this time and it all got done in time.
