Let others know! Visit the USPS website for a change of address form. Notify your home and auto insurance agents and also utility companies to avoid paying for services you won’t be using.
Contact the local Chamber of Commerce or City Hall to request a new resident package. They have information on places of interest like libraries, parks, where to get a driver’s’ license and more. Start early and go online to find new doctors, dentists, veterinarians and other important resources.
Categorize old items, clothing, toys for the kids and weed out what you no longer need. Mark three boxes as “Donate”, “Sell”, and “Toss” and donate unneeded items to local charities, offer your neighbor something they could use or have a yard sale!
