  • Contact Keepmoving Services to purchase moving boxes and necessary packing supplies.
  • Start to clean out closets, the garage and attic.

  • Get change of address cards from your local post office.
  • Notify magazines, charge accounts, insurance companies, clubs and all other organizations of your change of address. If possible, get owner’s manuals for appliances in your new home.

ONE TO TWO WEEKS BEFORE THE MOVE

  • Make a “survival closet” of things you will need for the final clean-up and include a snack for the last day.
