Moving is no easy task. However, technology can make it easier. If you are planning a move soon to Edina, Minnetonka, Orono, Wayzata or perhaps Minneapolis – here are some tips to help you take modern technology and employ it for a smoother relocation.
The best way to stay organized when moving is to keep a list of activities or tasks you need to accomplish and, as you complete the tasks, mark them off your list. The problem with writing your list on paper is, you will inevitably lose or misplace the paper. It will get lost in your purse or you’ll set it down and forget it somewhere.
In an age of hyper-technology, one of the benefits to moving is that you can use technology to your advantage. If you own a cell phone there are a many applications to help with your move.
4 Moving Apps to Help With Your Next Move
Here are four mobile apps we like that are designed to help you move your family to your new home and keep you organized during this hectic time:

You make secure payments and go back to doing what’s important to you.
