The weeks leading up to a PCS are full of decisions, paperwork, and long to-do lists. It is all too easy for things to be lost or forgotten. With our ever-present phones and tablets, we have the opportunity to give ourselves a powerful tool in PCS organization! Here are four apps to help your next PCS run just a little bit smoother.
It’s Moving Time!
Once orders are in hand, the to-do list can be daunting. Among the most time-consuming tasks is the creation or updating of your home inventory. While a inventory is an invaluable tool in staying organized and easing the claims process in the case of damage, it does not have to be difficult! Download SORTLY to move your home inventory to an easily updated and maintained app!
On the Move
The packers have loaded the last box and it is time to hit the road! Keep your travel costs under control by utilizing iPhone’s GasBuddy to find the lowest price gas during the road trip to your next duty station. It also helps with pit stop planning as the app locates the nearest gas station and alerts you to how far away it is!
Because you need more than gas to reach your destination, check out iExit. From rest areas to coffee to hotels, iExit groups upcoming businesses by interstate exit. An especially helpful tool for the parents of picky eaters!
Making A Home
You have arrived! Now it is time to get down to the business of making a home. It is easy for tools to get scattered as boxes are unpacked – and rummaging can make unpacking take even longer! Instead of searching for a level to get those pictures and decorations hung, grab Bubble Level for Android and use your phone!
