Exclamation Urgent! Moving to new house-I need advice!

Ok thank you to anybody who responds on short notice but I have a kinda important question. We're moving, and although its only across town, we're going from ~2000 sq. ft. to ~1000 sq. ft. We're gonna have lots of stuff to move and get rid of and it will be a slow process but kinda crazy-the kind of crazy where we'll be sleeping on the floor for a week. The question of moving the bettas is difficult as setting up the tanks is one of the last things on our list as we need to get the big stuff out and arranged while we can. What is your advice on what to do? Will Sonic and Neptune be OK living in their own mason jars for about a week? Help!

My Bettas:
Sonic, Red and Blue veiltail
Neptune, Blue veiltail

My Dog:
Princess-10 year old German Shepherd

My (Grandparents') Cat:
Bella-14 year old tuxedo-going through her second childhood with an attitude

SITUATIONS:
None as of now.

Check out my story on here!

I just bought betta 3 days ago in the plastic container. I bought it for some one else so I decided to keep betta at my work table to observe if it healthy. I did it before. I just change him every day ,today I didn't even change him, because the water looks clean. Also when I change him every day I leave a little bit of his original water,so I don't stress him out.

Also make sure food don't sink on the bottom.

Some bettas stay in their cups at the petstores for MONTHS. Im sure your little guys will be fine in their jars so long as the water is clean and the temp isnt too low.
