We have one more week until we move, and after two years of waiting, we could not be more excited! Our family is awesome enough to help us out during this move.Someone has to be the designated leader and if you choose that role, people will be looking to you to tell them where to put everything. . To keep things less chaotic, I started a list of first things to do when moving into a new home checklist. These are things to do before the move and right when we moved in. If you are just starting the building process, click here for a gallery of home tips.
The Week Before (or sooner)
- Call your Internet and cable company to set up everything for the day after you move.
- Transfer the electric, gas, water, etc. for the day you move in.
- Send out an email to all your friends and family of your new address.
- Update Magazine Subscriptions, Car, Health, Insurance, PayPal, Credit Unions, Doctors, Banks, etc. of your change in address. Set up forwarding address at the post office.
An excellent checklist blog I found was by Homesweetlife.
