When we moved last month, one of the most helpful things that our realtor did was to give us a moving checklist so that nothing would fall through the cracks during an emotional and logistically crazy life change. We had so many balls in the air and it was nice to have a piece of paper where we could check things off and take notes.
I ended up adding a bunch of other items to the list and decided to create The Ultimate Moving Checklist so that if you or anyone you know moves anytime soon, you can print it and use it for yourself.
In addition to printing out my checklist, I recommend buying yourself a binder with dividers (I got mine at Target) so you can keep all of your moving documents in order. In mine, I kept the contract for our new home, the selling contract for our old home, our movers’ contract, homeowners insurance information, information on Amalia’s new daycare, and weekly moving to-do lists. That binder came everywhere with me for about a month.
Moving can quickly start to feel like a full-time job but if you stay organized, it will be infinitely easier.
How to use the checklist:
1. Click the link below to download the PDF file
2. Open the PDF and print it out
3. Tape it up on the fridge, add it to a moving binder, or keep it on your desk but make sure it’s visible and accessible for two weeks before and after your move.
