BE PREPARED ON MOVE DAY

Have items ready to go when the movers arrive.

Have stickers or designate which rooms the items are moving to in marker on the boxes.

Have an adult within earshot at all times in case the movers have a question. Have placards or sticky notes at destination so the movers know exactly what each room is called.

SAY GOODBYE TO UNUSED STUFF

Why wait until after the move to toss out your not needed items? Donate them to a local charity, give them to a neighbor in need or just toss them out with the trash.
