Start packing the non-essential items in your home, room by room. Use labels to clearly mark the contents of each box and the room they belong to in your new place. Make a list of the breakable items you’ll want to move personally, and begin to organize them into one area. This may include art work, glass, porcelain, lamp shades. Wrap them with packing paper, bubble wrap or if it makes sense, use towels and blankets from your home.
Packing the kitchen
NB: Load the box half full with heavy crockery and fill the Ecobox with soft and lightweight bedding.
New address notification
Make a list of institutions, organizations, businesses, subscriptions, memberships and people that need to be notified about the address change and date. Some services may have to be cancelled while others need to be changed to the new address. Make appointments with the new service companies for, for instance, phone and internet. Send a blanket email to all friends in your email address book telling them of your move.
Keep important documents, medications, certificates, keys etc, belonging to all family members, safe in one briefcase or small suitecase/bag, at one central location in your home. Make sure you know where it is at all times.
