First things first – knock off the boring stuff. Before you move into your new home, fill out a change of address form, have your mail forwarded, and let your banks, financial institutions, subscriptions, and other such organizations know you’re moving. Be aware that several of these things can take some weeks to kick into action, so it’s smart to start them earlier rather than later. On this same token, have your utilities and services transferred, including your electricity, water, gas, cable, phone, and internet. You can do a great deal of this online, and shouldn’t have to spend hours running from place to place.
