·         Hold a yard sale, or donate unwanted items to charity.

6 Weeks Before

·         If moving out of town, make travel arrangements.

·         Notify your children’s schools of the move and contact new schools for enrollment information.

1 Month Before

·         Inform utility companies to disconnect services the day after you move

·         Then, have new service activated several days before you arrive at your new house.

·         If you’re packing your house yourself, order supplies and start packing boxes.

1 Week Before

·         Finish packing boxes.

·         Arrange payment or deposit for movers.

·         Complete change-of-address forms at the post office, and send notices to magazine subscriptions, creditors, friends and relatives, alumni organizations, credit cards, banks, and any other necessary companies and organizations.

·         Pack suitcases you plan to move yourself with clothes, toiletries, jewelry, and important financial records and documents.

Moving Day

·         Pack your first-night box.

·         Lock windows, turn off lights, close doors, and take a final tour after the movers have finished to make certain nothing is left behind.
