Helping to make your life stress free, ab fab – good move.
The week or so before you move house is the most hectic, but you should have at least organised the big items such as removalists and packing materials by that stage. One of the most important tasks to complete in your final week is to make sure you have notified everyone of your change of address. It is also a good idea to start having your mail redirected from the date you are moving out.
Next, you have to finish up the big job of packing. Make sure you leave enough of your things unpacked to still make your home liveable during the final week, but try and pack away as much as possible. It’s helpful to set aside a bag or two for each member of the family with only the essentials in them.
You should also start to contact utility companies if you haven’t already and give them the cut off date for your electricity, gas and any other services. Try not to buy any food in the last week – finish eating whatever food you can, and plan for take-away meals for the rest of the week. You’ll probably have your kitchen packed up and ready to go, so this will make mealtimes easier.
