Moving is a fact of life. There is no avoiding it. However, we found the ultimate list to make it less painful and more efficient so you can move into your dream home with ease. Here are a few of our biggest takeaways. Before you move, it’s a great time to truly go through your home and do a deep dive into a Spark Joy approach.
