In the best of times, moving is a stressful and complicated life event. Now, contending with possible travel restrictions surrounding the pandemic, is the icing on this complicated cake! Facing new rules and restrictions can add extra steps to your military move.
For example, you might need to quarantine in a hotel for a period of time if you are PCSing overseas. Taking the time to plan as much as you can in advance for your move will go a long way in helping to reduce stress and anxiety, and better allow for the excitement of getting to experience a new location.
You're careful about packing dishes, but what about documents? Use this list to pack like a pro so you always have your important documents handy. During a move you should always have your important documents packed with you and NOT with the movers.
I suggest while you are organizing these items, you also prepare an emergency binder that can be used not only during a PCS, but also in the event that there is a natural disaster or unexpected crisis.
*while not PCS-ing I recommend these items be kept in a safety deposit box
Here are some great examples of Emergency Kits and PCS Binders to get you started (and motivated!)
What did I miss!? What do you ensure is in your family's PCS binder or emergency plan?
