Now is the time that you start getting last minute things done. Get rid of anything that is not sold at your moving sale. You have a long distance to travel so ensure that your car is serviced and in good condition. If you are moving from a warm climate to a cold one, make sure to check your anti-freeze. Return any borrowed items (including library books) and retrieve any loaned items. Cancel your newspaper delivery. Notify any creditors of your move. Transfer prescriptions and be sure you have an adequate supply of medicines on hand. Assemble a file folder of information to leave for the new owner of your home. Change your address – One week before you move, send change-of-address cards to everyone who will need to contact you. Pick up laundry – Laundry tickets are easy to misplace, so ask for your things by name and not just by the receipts you have. Pack a travel kit. Put aside critical items like a checkbook, credit cards, personal phone book, ID, flashlight, keys, toiletries, tools, paper plates, cups, towels, travel alarm clock, aspirin, bandages and games for the kids. Also pack a suitcase with clothing and other personal items.
