Packing in bundles: pack your fragile items into bundles and tape them together to help build extra support.

Pack correctly: put your heavy items in small boxes and light items in larger boxes. It was make the moving process much easier.


How To Make a Staycation in Your Anaheim Apartments Fun

Just because you cannot take a vacation doesn’t mean you and your family can’t have some fun this spring. Your city is probably booming with great activities to try, so instead of moping around, try planning a staycation. Here are a few ideas for making a staycation in your Anaheim apartment’s fun.



Include the kids: the first step to making a staycation fun is to include your entire family in the planning process. Let your kids give their input on things they might want to do while on break.



Do it yourself: try planning a few fun activates to do in your apartment. It can save you money and be a bonding experience with your family. Try camping out in your patio or making a drive-in theater in the parking lot.



Socialize: throw a cocktail party and invite friends over to socialize. Doing anything alone can be boring, so invite some friend over to help make your staycation more enjoyable.
