We have just packed up and moved for what feels like the 100th time in the last 11 months (its probably a lot more!), so I thought it was about time I shared a few of the things we’ve learnt along the way.  One of the biggest tips I could give you is, if you’re not staying in a place for longer than 5 days, don’t bother unpacking – makes moving easy 🙂 However...

There a lot of talk online about the 80/20 rule but its not a new concept. My Grandfather enlightened me about the 80/20 rule in the early 80’s.
