Moving is a big process, and moving with a pet requires even more work. When you move into your new home, not only will you have to design it to accommodate your lifestyle, but you’ll also have to consider your furry friend. Many times, animals become anxious during a move, so you’ll want to make your new home as comfortable as possible for them. The San Antonio movers at All My Sons Moving & Storage have some DIY hacks for creating a fun and comfortable living space for your pet using repurposed household items.

-Make a DIY cat tent: Using a large t-shirt, two wire hangers, tape, safety pines, and scissors, you can create a fun little home for your cat.

 

-DIY pet bed: create a pet bed by stuffing a pillow inside of an old sweater, the sewing the ends of the arms together. Your pets are more likely to enjoy being near items that smell like you, and this could help them to relax.

 

-Using shipping pallets, you can build a tv table that doubles as a dog crate.

 

-If your pet enjoys sleeping with you, build a ramp or stairs for them to easily access your bed without straining themselves by jumping.

 

-If your furry friend likes sleeping next to your build, try building a dog bed into a night stand or end table.

 

-Repurpose your unused crib into a dog crate.

 

-Fill an old suitcase with pillows and blankets, your pet is likely to sleep in it, or use it as a comfortable place to lounge during the day.

If you have just completed a move, your family may be feeling the effects that come with moving just before the beginning of a new year. If you have children, it is likely they will be switching to new schools. This can be a tough time for young ones after moving to South San Antonio. Oftentimes, children have a harder time adapting to a move and dealing with the transition. All My Sons Moving & Storage would like to share important tips on how to help your children switch schools in the middle of the academic year to a new school in South San Antonio.

  1. Do your research. Figure out if you can make moving to South San Antonio a little easier by talking to friends for family members that may know some people in your new area. Setting up a play date and helping your children meet new friends can really make a difference.
  1. Gear the school towards things they love. If you have a son that loves basketball, or a daughter who is an artist, look for schools that appeal to your children’s niche. Doing so can help them to be less anxious and a little more excited.
  1. Offer incentive. Understand that is a hard time for your child. Maybe a small shopping trip for some new school clothes will help build them the confidence they need to attend their new school in South San Antonio. A big breakfast or an ice cream treat after the first day is always a great idea!
  1. Ensure that while they will make new friends, you can help them to keep old friends! Make it a point to help your children keep the friendships they already have. These relationships often work as a safe space or an outlet. The trust and bond has already been built, and it is a great way for them to interact without pressure after moving to South San Antonio.

Martin Luther King’s Day is right around the corner. What better way to show your support for the equality of our nation than by getting out into the community and participating in the MLK Run in San Antonio? Your local movers from All My Sons Moving & Storage suggest that this is a great way to meet and mingle with like-minded individuals after moving to San Antonio.

This 5K run/walk will be taking place on the Sunday before Martin Luther King’s Day at 9 a.m. in Martin Luther King Park. This run will be put on by the Young Men’s Leadership Program to fundraise and bring support to their community and the community of San Antonio. This mission on this organization is to influence the forward thinking minds of young people into leaders. After moving to San Antonio, one of the greatest places to get acclimated is at MLK Park. The park offers wonderful scenery and sights to take a run through. There is no time limit for this run, and anyone is welcome to participate.

The MLK Run in San Antonio is a great event for families or friends to partake in as a group. Make a morning out of it and head to Downtown San Antonio after for some lunch, spending the Sunday exploring your new city. Make some fitness friends and train towards completing in more runs in the future if you enjoy this one! Many communities and organizations in San Antonio hold runs and marathons. This is a great way to get involved and give back to your new local community after moving to San Antonio.


The New Year is a great time for making positive changes in one’s life. Another great time to make a change is after a move! After moving to San Antonio, you have the perfect opportunity to make positive changes last in your life. Marking a new year and new beginnings, you can start changing for the better by changing your diet. All My Sons Moving & Storage would like to share this list of healthy food habits to consider taking on this year.

Add more green! This small change can make a large impact on your life. Add a little bit of green to every meal to ensure that you are getting the nutrition that your body needs.

Skip the fried food. Go a few weeks without any fried food and see how your body feels. After you cut it out for a couple weeks, your body is sure to cut the cravings. If you do not wish to cut out all fried foods, keep them down to a minimum.

Drink plenty of water. We hear it all the time, however; drinking as much water as we should seems like such a task. While moving to San Antonio and throughout other strenuous and tiring activities, it is important to be sufficiently hydrated.

You do not have to cut out the foods you love! One of the best healthy eating habits is to continue indulging in your guilty pleasures or the food that may not be so good for you. However, the trick is to keep it at a minimum and in small portions. Proper nutrition is a lifestyle, not a diet!


The New Year has come! This is the time when people like to kick the bad habits and work on creating new and positive ones. Whether you have just moved, finally settled in, or are a new resident, these tips to starting the New Year off right will benefit any home. All My Sons Moving & Storage South San Antonio local movers are the moving experts here to help you with your home’s New Year makeover.

Organize – Organize your home from top to bottom. South San Antonio local movers suggest spending an entire day or two reorganizing your home. Make it a point to do touch-ups at least once a month. Set an organization day and stick to it! Doing this once a month will help keep your home neat, and also help you sift through things and tackle projects you may otherwise put off.

Cleaning Habits – It is time to change those pesky cleaning habits! Set daily, weekly, and monthly cleaning goals to help keep your home looking and feeling pristine. It is hard to argue that a clean home is a happy home.

Purge – After the holidays, everyone seems to have more stuff than they did before they began. Make room for your new gifts and possessions by clearing out some of the old ones. While you are organizing, make it a point to head into your closet and try on some items that you have not worn in a while. Donating some of your old clothes, shoes, or other various household items will free up some of your space while helping you to give back to your community.

Getting the Whole Family on Board – Doing these tasks will be much easier if the entire family is on board. Set some days to get the work done and make it fun! Play some music and go out to a family dinner afterwards. Implement a system that works for you!


Rideshare companies like Uber, Lyft and Sidecar are here to stay. Earlier this month, the San Antonio city council voted to allow rideshare apps to remain legal within the city. This is good news for anyone who plans to spend their night out on New Year’s in South San Antonio. Our professional movers spend a lot of time on the road, and we know how dangerous it can be during the holiday season.

This is a landmark decision for all of San Antonio. After almost three years of citizens arguing in support of rideshare companies, San Antonio council members locked in debate over the merit and safety of these apps. Just in time for New Year’s in South San Antonio, it was finally announced that they can continue to operate in the city on the condition that the ridesharing apps consider fingerprinting as part of background checks within the next year.

Like most companies, from police officers to professional movers, background checks are mandatory and usually require fingerprinting. Ridesharing apps like Uber and Lyft do thorough background checks but do not require fingerprinting.

Community members point to a decreasing number of drunk driving incidents as a positive effect that these apps have had on the community, and with New Years’ in South San Antonio just around the corner, apps like these are likely to save lives.

The professional movers at All My Sons Moving & Storage wish you a safe, happy, and fun-filled New Year’s celebration. Stay safe and don’t drink and drive.


Every year, there seems to be an “it” toy. Years ago, it was the Tickle Me Elmo, other years it has been gaming systems, and this year it is the Hatchimal. What is a Hatchimal? Good question. For those who are not familiar with the toy, it is a small, furry animal that “hatches” from an egg and learns skills as it ages. Kids this holiday season are going crazy over the Hatchimal, and San Antonio is feeling the effects of this craze.

Hatchimals run for $59.99, but because of their immense demand, they are being sold for almost four times that amount. Shoppers are gearing up as the Hatchimal trend is moving to San Antonio, and toy stores are bracing for the storm. Parents across the country have been lining up at stores the night before they open, scouring the internet, and doing just about anything they can to get their hands on a Hatchimal this holiday season.

While toy crazes are known to come and go, i.e. Tickle Me Elmo, demand for the Hatchimal has outpaced that of the Nintendo NES Classic Edition Console, another top toy of Christmas 2016.

As the Hatchimal is moving to San Antonio, retailers are getting ready for the frenzy and making sure that every top toy of Christmas 2016 is thoroughly stocked on their shelves as much as supply can meet the demand.

As the holidays are drawing nearer, if you are on the hunt for a Hatchimal, some are being sold on third party vendors websites, like Amazon, but their prices are almost four times the original price.
