3 Tips For Moving House That You Can't Do Without

1. TAKE CARE OF AS MUCH AS YOU CAN BEFORE YOU MOVE. Things like changing your address, setting up utilities, and cleaning your new home are helpful to have done before you move in. Being on top of the change of address will also ensure you don't miss any payment deadlines (and therefore won't incur late fees, interest, etc).

2. THINGS TO KEEP HANDY AND/OR NEED TO BE UNPACKED FIRST include bedding, shower curtain, towel, toiletries, snacks, water, trash bags, scissors, toilet paper, paper towels, Clorox wipes, cell phone and charger. Having these things accessible is not only convenient but also saves you money, because if you can't find them you'll have to purchase them again.

3. START WITH WHAT YOU KNOW. Unpacking can seem like a daunting task, so start with what you know. Put items in the correct room or space like kitchen items in the kitchen. Then take it one step further like putting silverware in a kitchen drawer and plates in an upper cabinet.
