Cheap Things to Do in Houston at Night

 

Houston offers an incredible nightlife even if you are on a budget. Whether you are looking for romantic date ideas or you are a night owl searching for the hottest nightlife that starts after midnight, Houston has it all for people of all ages.

 

Enjoy Theatre for Free

 

It is not often you find theatre options that do not cost you anything, but at the Miller Outdoor Theatre, you can do just that. This theatre, which is open from March to November thanks to the amazing Houston weather, provides plenty of different types of entertainment from dances to Shakespearean plays to some of your favorite films. On occasion, some shows offer assigned, ticketed seating, but the prices are still affordable. They even allow you to bring your own drinks and picnic, giving you the opportunity to have a wonderful night out for very little money. If you prefer assigned seating, the tickets are available at the Miller Theatre Box Office on the day of the performance between 10:30 AM and 1 PM. Each person is limited to a purchase of four tickets.

 

Get your Laughs On

 

Laughing is good for the soul and you will do plenty of it at the Improv Houston. This dinner theatre offers you the best of both worlds – dinner and a show. Tickets range between $12 and $30 for admission, depending on the type of show you wish to see. The lineup includes everything from amateurs to hot name celebrities. The show times vary depending on the day of the week; there are shows that start as early as 7 PM and as late as 11:30 PM. You can see the exact schedule on their website and purchase tickets there as well. If you wish to eat at the theatre, they offer a full menu and full bar, giving you an entire night of entertainment located right in the Marq*E Entertainment Center.

 

Drink Like an Adult

 

Bars are a dime a dozen in Houston, but Poison Girl is not your typical crammed wall-to-wall dance floor type bar. This one is more for the “grown up” drinker – the one that enjoys a good glass of whiskey and the comradery of the bar patrons around him. If the whiskey is not enough to entice you, they also have a wide selection of other alcoholic beverages, live music, and a wide array of vintage pinball machines, making this the hotspot for the adults that no longer enjoy the nightclub scene, but enjoy a fun night out with a few grown-up cocktails.

 

Take it Back Old School

 

Remember when life was as simple as heading to the local roller rink on a Friday night? Why not relive those memories with a Thursday night at the Dairy Ashford Roller Rink? Thursday nights are adult night, from 8 PM to 10:30 PM. It is only $6 for admission and skate rental combined – if you still own your skates from way back when, it is only $3 admission. Around since the 1970’s, this roller rink brings you back to the day while giving you the opportunity to sneak in some exercise and fun at the same time. Grab a bite to eat at the snack bar and you can really relive those childhood years.

 

Mystery Theatre with Dessert

 

Theatre is usually a wonderful time on its own, but when you pair it with incredible dessert, it becomes even better! The Murder by Chocolate Mystery Theatre offers a unique opportunity to go out at night and have some fun and for only $12 to $30 per ticket. The shows, which are family-friendly, offer you the opportunity to just be a spectator or to join in on the fun and maybe even be the murderer. The shows are two hours long and take place in a coffee shop type of setting, with the shows applicable for ages 5 to 100. You can read about each of the three shows they offer online and even book your tickets at that time.

 

Houston is a great place to have fun at night while not spending a whole lot of money. Whether you prefer the nightlife scene or you are more laid back, preferring theatre or roller skating, there is something for everyone in this great city that millions of people call home.

7 Things Professional Moving Companies Wish You Knew

 

No one enjoys the moving process, as it is typically both a stressful and expensive experience. Due to this, often people throw the DIY approach out the window and instead hire professional movers to get the job done. However, hiring movers typically doesn’t get rid of the stress entirely, as there are still many things that could go wrong. It is best to know how moving professionals work best, which means knowing when you should help them out and when you should get out of their way to make your moving day go as smoothly as possible. We’ve put together a list of things that your moving company WISHED you knew to make their job and your move as easy as possible.

 

1.  Prepare Before the Movers Get There

Before you do anything, first think about everything that needs to get done so that your moving day can go smoothly. Do you need to find parking for the moving truck? Do you have to reserve your apartment’s elevator beforehand? If you are moving in or out of an apartment, then it is also important to know the building’s rules, such as if they have designated moving hours so that you do not run into any major issues.

 

 

2.  Let Movers Know Which of Your Things Are Fragile and Valuable

Movers cannot read your mind, and so they will not have any idea what the value of your things are, and they will not necessarily know which of your things are fragile. Make a list of the possessions you want your movers to be extra careful with. The easiest way to handle damage is to avoid it entirely by communicating with your moving company about the things that are precious and/or valuable.

 

3.  Pack Your Stuff Up Before Moving Day

If you decide you want to do your own packing, then ensure that you’ve finished doing so before the moving company gets there. Don’t leave any of your boxes scattered around the house or un-taped. Ensure that all of your boxes are correctly filled and taped up and place them all in one room so that your movers can quickly access them when they show up. Doing so will speed up the moving process enormously and will also ensure that your things are kept safe. It is also recommended that you stack your boxes against the wall so that your movers can move around freely.

 

4.  Properly Label Your Boxes

You do not need to write down everything you’ve put into the box, but it is a good idea to note where you want the box in your new apartment or home so that your movers can put it where it needs to go without asking you or just guessing. Doing so will also save you money if your movers are charging an hourly rate. Additionally, make sure your movers will be able to understand your labels. For example, if you write “Ron’s room” make sure your movers know which room you are talking about.

 

5.  Don’t Hover

You may think you are doing your movers a favor by getting into the truck with them and sorting through items or helping them lift boxes, but you are more than likely just getting in the way. Movers are professionals who are trained and skilled at what they do. They’ve likely created a plan on how to get your move done as efficiently as possible and so it is important that you respect that. This means not hovering over them and letting them get the job done. You are better off directing your movers into the right rooms and reassembling your furniture in your new abode.

 

6.  Don’t Forget to Tip Your Movers

You should tip your movers anywhere between $20 and 50, but if you are feeling generous, then they will gladly accept more. Keep in mind that your movers’ job is no easy task and so tipping them will be greatly appreciated. Additionally, if you want stellar service, you may even consider tipping your movers before they start so that they are motivated to work hard. Buying your movers lunch is also a nice gesture that won’t go unnoticed.

 

7.  Make Sure to Do Research on Your Moving Company

The moving industry, unfortunately, has a terrible reputation. You will find that there are good movers and bad movers. Keep in mind that every moving company out there will be on their best behavior when discussing the estimate, but it is essential to look beyond that to find the company that will both efficiently move your things and make the process as comfortable as possible for you. It is recommended that you swing by the office in person to ensure that they are the real deal and not just one guy working out of his home.

 

Preparing your Pets for a Safe Move

 

Moving is not only a stressful experience for you and your family – it is stressful for your pets as well. Due to the fact you likely consider your pets a part of your family, it is important to know how to prepare them for a safe and stress-free move.

Getting Crate Ready

If your pet is not used to being crated and you will need him to be for the move, plan ahead. A few months or weeks, at a minimum, take the crate out and let your animal get used to it. Place a few of his favorite or familiar items in it so that he can associate it with being safe. Letting him explore the crate on his own without any pressure will make him get acclimated to it much faster and with much less stress. This way when it is time to move and use the crate, he will not experience large amounts of anxiety.

Ride in the Car

Riding in the car is not something all pets do often. If your animal is only used to the car to go to the vet, chances are it may be an anxiety provoking experience for him. During the same time frame (a few months or, at least, weeks before your move) take him for short rides in the car and to somewhere fun. Maybe take your dog to the park or your cat to a relative’s house. Make the ride short and sweet and the destination something that does not cause them more stress.

Staying out of the Way

On the big moving day, it is important that your pets are out of the way for their own safety as well as their mental wellbeing. With people constantly coming in and out and familiar belongings being removed from the home, it is very easy for pets to get scared and stressed. If you have someone that can keep an eye on your animals while you move, that is the best option. If this is not possible, at the very least, crate him or put him in a room where he is out of the way and can relax until it is time for him to leave.

Pack a Pet Bag

Make sure you have a bag packed for your pet that is easily accessible so when you arrive at your new home or at a hotel, if you have to break the move up over a matter of days, you will have what your pet needs. This takes some of the stress off of you, which in turn, makes him feel better. When he has his familiar bowls, blankets, and toys, he can have some of the comforts of home with him, helping him to feel relaxed. In this bag, you should also carry any type of emergency items you may need for your pet if he has any special health concerns.

Arriving at your New Home

Once you are at your new home, don’t let your animal roam the house right away. Instead, put him in a room that you inspected and deemed safe while you check out the rest of the home. Now that the house is empty, you can easily identify any hidden hazards that can be an issue for your pet. Once you know each room is safe, start spreading out your animal’s belongings, placing them in rooms that are as close to the rooms you had at home. This will help him to get acclimated with the new house quicker because he will not only have his familiar belongings, but still have the scent of the old home as well.

 

Moving with a pet does add an element of anxiety to the process, but it can be made easier when you take the right precautions. As long as you don’t just pick your pet up and move with no warning and are sure to bring the comforts of his old home, he should get quickly acclimated with his surroundings and love his new home as much as you do.

 

Tips for Handling Moving Company Disputes

 

After dealing with the stressful affair of moving across the country, as well as the time it takes to unpack all of your things, the last thing you want to do is receive a bill from your moving company and realize that it is for thousands of dollars more than you expected. You also don’t want to find out that some of your valuable possessions were damaged or lost in the move. However, both these situations are much more common than you’d think. If either happens to you or another issue with your moving company, it is critical that you know how to handle it. You have many options that are available to you if you choose to dispute a bill from your moving company or claim that your possessions were lost or damaged. Nevertheless, be aware that movers have the right to hold your items while you dispute your bill. Let’s take a look at the options you have to handle a moving company dispute.

Ask About Company’s Dispute Settlement Program

If you are moving across state lines, before the moving company touches your household goods they are required to give you information in regards to their particular dispute resolution program. Movers must give you info on a neutral dispute settlement program in case that your household goods are damaged or lost or if you believe you were charged too much.

What to Do for Damaged or Lost Goods

If your home goods become damaged or lost during the delivery process, it is recommended that you request a claim form from the moving company. Fill out this claim form as best as you can. The company will inform you of where you need to mail in the form. It is usually required that you file a written claim within nine months of the service. Additionally, your claim must be handwritten, but it is not necessary that it be submitted on the moving company’s claim form. It is best that you send your claims information to the moving company through certified mail. If the settlement offer made by the company is not to your satisfaction, then you have the option to turn in a loss and damage claim through the dispute settlement program or proceed to look into more serious legal remedies.

If You Believe You Have Been Overcharged

The movers will appraise your move-in cost and will inform you of the charges for its services before you sign any paperwork. These charges must also be published in a tariff, which is made available to you if you request it. If you believe that your moving company overcharged you, then it is recommended that you contact the Surface Transportation Board to seek further assistance.

If You Used a Credit Card and Were Overcharged

If you paid your moving service using a credit card and were overcharged or unrightfully charged for a service you did not use, then you can dispute the charge that was put on your credit card with the credit card company. If the company agrees with your argument, they will debit your account for the amount and will leave it up to the moving company to sue for what they are believed they are owed.

File a Lawsuit as a Last Resort

You should first see if the moving company will file an arbitration, which is a type of out-of-court dispute resolution. This is easier and less expensive than a lawsuit for both parties involved. Your moving contract may have an arbitration written in its language if your moving company is part of the American Moving and Storage Association as it is a right provided under the Carmack Amendment for moves across states. It is highly recommended that you look into the AMSA’s programs for dispute before filing a lawsuit. If you decide to proceed with legal counsel, then keep in mind that court filing fees and lawyers can be extremely pricey and so could negate the amount that is awarded to you. Due to this, it is best that you seek consequential damages, and attorney’s fees as well so that filing suit is worth the time and expense. Talk to a lawyer to find out if this is the right choice for your situation.

Why Moving to Houston is Great for Families

 

Choosing the perfect place for your family to live is a huge undertaking. If you have your choice of anywhere in the U.S., you have a lot of great choices. Among those choices is Houston – a very popular city for families of all ages and sizes with a total population of 2.2 million people. What used to be known as a city for cowboys and crazy hot weather is now one of the most popular places to live.

 

Cost-Friendly Living

The cost of living seems to increase year after year, especially in the far reaches of the United States. Places like San Francisco and New York City offer extremely high living costs along with unaffordable housing, while other areas fall somewhere in between. Houston, on the other hand, provides families with lower than average daily costs, affordable home prices, and a plethora of high-paying jobs. While the area is known for gas and oil companies, there are plenty of other opportunities, including business and manufacturing industries, making it a place for single and double-income families to move.

 

Amazing Weather

If the area you currently reside is fraught with extremely high temperatures year-round; unbearable winters; or weather threats, such as hurricanes and tornadoes, you will love the weather in Houston. It offers a comfortable temperature throughout the year; no snow; and plenty of sunshine. As with any area, you will have to deal with some humidity and unpleasant weather, but compared to the rest of the country, it offers the most stable environment available.

 

Great Educational Opportunities

Education is often a driving factor for the area families choose to live and for good reason. Houston offers exceptional educational opportunities for children of all ages. In fact, the Houston Independent School District (the largest district in the area) is among the top ten largest school districts in the country. Families can find a plethora of educational opportunities from great public schools to a variety of private school options. It is also home to a variety of universities including the University of Houston and Texas Southern University.

 

A Tight-Knit Community

It can be hard to move to a new community, not to mention a new state, and try to fit in with the culture, but in Houston they make it easy! The community as a whole is easy to get along with as their beliefs are rather conservative and their culture diverse. With plenty of activities for kids and adults to participate in, it is easy to see why families love to settle here. Swimming, golfing, sports teams, and hiking are just a few of the great activities you will find in Houston.

 

Beach Paradise is Nearby

If you love beach life, but do not want to live right on the beach, Houston gives you the best of both worlds. In under and hour, you can drive to the beach and enjoy the beautiful views and amazing sports the water offers. This means no long vacations or even day trips – head out for a few hours and head right back home to your comfortable home in a comfortable town.

 

If you desire a place to live that has everything a family could want, look at Houston. This family-friendly city offers everything a family could need and want whether you have infants, toddlers, or college-bound students. It is one of the calmest, friendliest, and most affordable cities available to families in the United States. Whether your job takes you there or you wish to find a place that meets the needs of your entire party, this town has it all.

How to Survive Moving When You Have No Money

 

Moving is a daunting task for anybody, but especially for those who have little money to spare. The task of getting all your stuff from your current home to a new house, and to a new city, without spending money you do not have is difficult. However, it is not impossible, especially if you follow some money saving tips. Here are five strategies and tricks to ease the stress of moving and save you a substantial amount of money when you are on a tight budget.

 

Don’t Spend Money on Boxes

It is tough to move without boxes, which is why moving companies tend to charge unreasonable prices for them. However, purchasing boxes is a waste of money as there are plenty of ways you can get your hands on them for free. For instance, look around your workplace or office to find empty boxes, such as printer-paper boxes, as these are large and strong enough to contain many items. Additionally, ask your friends or family members if they have any lying around. If this does not work then, you can always look in the free section of Craigslist or Freecycle to find free boxes.

 

Be Smart About Utility Cut-Off Dates

Many utility companies will prorate you on the day of your departure date, which means that if your billing cycle does not match your moving day, you may want to consider cutting off your service before the next monthly cycle so that you are not paying for a whole extra month of utility bills. It is true, you can indeed survive without cable for a couple of weeks. However, you likely don’t want to use this tip with electricity. If you are moving to another city, then do research on whether it offers a free service to get you the best deals on signing up for utilities. For example, Dallas has Utility Concierge.

 

Make Sure You Have a Secure Job Before Moving

Whether or not you have money, it is usually not a good idea to move to a new city without already securing a job before hand. If, for some reason, you did not have time to take care of this crucial matter before relocating, you must buckle down and secure one right after you relocate. Unless you are lucky, job hunting is usually a very slow process and can even take months before you come into contact with an interviewee. It is highly recommended that you ensure your expertise is a valued commodity in your new city to minimize the stress of having no money and to shorten the amount of time that you are surviving on very little funds.

 

Get Rid of A Lot Of Your Stuff

Donating or selling some of your stuff can not only earn you some money and get you a tax deduction but will also eliminate extra weight, which will lower your moving costs substantially. If you are bringing your furniture with you, then it is also important to look at your new house’s measurements. The last thing you want to do is go through the effort and cost of moving bulky furniture only to find out that there isn’t actually room for it.

 

Consider Asking for Help

If you really have no financial resources to move but need to do so, then you may want to think about asking your close family or friends for help. The good news about being in a dire financial situation is that just because you do not have the money right now during a transitional phase, does not mean you will not have it later. Asking for help can make your move manageable, as long as you ensure that you pay back whoever lent you money.

Headed to Houston? Here’s How You Can Avoid 3 Major Moving Mistakes

 

 

movingtips

 

Are you getting ready to move to Houston soon? As one of the largest metropolitan areas in the U.S. and with an estimated population of over 2 million people, it’s safe to say, Houston, Texas is a popular place to be. However, while you may be excited to make your way to Houston, you may not be quite so enthusiastic about the actual move. Because let’s face, moving is a process, between trying to get organized let alone finding a place to live, it’s a lot for anyone to handle. Which is why it is so important to avoid some of these major moving errors. After all, why make the process more difficult than it needs to be?

 

1.) Packing at the Last Minute

We’ve all been there, at least at some point in time or another. It’s easy to procrastinate, especially when it comes to do something we would rather avoid. However, when it comes to moving, the last thing that you want to do is create a time crunch. Leaving ample time to plan your move is key. Not only are you likely to be less organized when you rush through a move, you’ll also likely become a frazzled mess during the process. Whether this is your first move or last move avoid waiting until the last minute.

 

2.) Skimping on Labels

Of course, you will remember what you put in that box, or will you? While it may seem like a hassle right now, skimping on labels when you’re in the process of moving is never a good idea. While you don’t need to create an extensive labeling system, be sure to mark your boxes accordingly. After all, it’s pretty easy to forget where you left something. You’ll likely be tired after your move, so plan ahead and make your life a little easier. Unpacking won’t be as difficult if you know exactly what you’re working with. Besides, do you really want the headache of trying to find something lost in the shuffle?

 

3.) Selecting the Wrong Movers

The cheapest option should do the trick right? Well, not exactly. Although locking in great moving rates can certainly be exciting, you’ll want to be cautious of selecting the wrong movers. While many of us assume that it could never happen to us, the reality is that there are some less than reputable moving companies out there. Moving companies that may cause items to break, become misplaced, and in some cases completely disappear. While saving a few bucks might seem like a great deal initially, be sure to do your research first. The right movers can make your experience a breeze while the wrong movers can make it a complete nightmare.

houstonmovers

 

There’s no doubt about it, moving can be stressful. Between packing your belongings, getting your finances in order, and not to mention the day-to-day obligations let’s face it, moving isn’t always the easiest experience. Which it comes at no surprise then why so many people dread the very thought of moving. Whether you’re getting ready to relocate to Houston or even just moving within the city, we understand first-hand just how challenging moving can be. If you’re having anxiety at the very thought of your upcoming move or you’re just feeling more stressed than normal, then you’ll want to read over these 5 helpful hints.

 

1.) Address Your Concerns

Before getting too far ahead of yourself, address your concerns. What specifically is bothering you about the move? It’s natural for change to bring a bit of anxiety into your life. However, for many of us this anxiety can get out of control. In order to overcome mover’s anxiety, pinpoint specific fears or concerns. Remember, it’s ok to acknowledge what is bothering you and crucial to combatting stress.

 

2.) Incorporate Physical Activity

Did you know that one of the best ways to combat stress is to incorporate physical activity into your daily routine? Although you may feel too busy, adding even a small amount of physical activity can help you tremendously. Not only will you help your body by making physical improvements, you’ll also improve your mental state of being.

 

3.) Develop a Plan

Many people feel overwhelmed at the very thought of moving. After all, moving is time intensive and often involves a considerable number of unknown possibilities. However, there is something that can help, a moving plan. If you’re concerned about an upcoming move and you just don’t know where to start, begin to develop a plan. Determine a timetable of your move and be sure to allow yourself plenty of time to take care of all the details.

 

4.) Don’t Forget to Relax

This seems simple enough, but for many movers it’s often forgotten. It can be easy to get caught up in the hype of it all, but don’t overlook the importance of taking it easy. Sure, your move may be on a short time notice, but that doesn’t mean you should forget to relax. Stress will make your move more difficult so be sure to give yourself a break now and again.

 

5.) Breathe

Above all, don’t forget to breathe. While moving isn’t always a walk in the park, it doesn’t have to be a complete headache either. If you’re feeling stressed or anxious take a moment to breathe. As the saying goes, “Rome was not built in a day”, tackle your to-do list one item at a time.
