The Planning Begins now is when you should start to budget for moving  expenses and start collecting estimates. You can start by creating a "move file." You'll need a place to keep important information and receipts for moving related expenses. Keeping them all in one place will help you down the line.

Start Paring Down Moving is tough, but it can also be an opportunity. This is the perfect time to get rid of the extra "stuff" you've accumulated. Take it one room at a time and prepare to make tough decisions. Survey each room and ask yourself: Does this have sentimental or monetary value? Does anyone really use it? Is it worth lugging around? Is there room for it in our new home? If it doesn't make the cut it! Plan a yard sale, post an online auction, or simply donate anything that does not meet your criteria. This is a great way to earn a little extra cash or another tax deduction.

Movers, Utilites & Pets• Reserve your mover File a change of address not only with post office, but also with all friends, relatives, subscriptions, charge accounts, credit cards.  Notify VA or Social Security if applicable.  If necessary, ask the postal service to hold your mail in their office in your new city.• Schedule disconnection of all utility services at your old home, and connection of them at your new one.  Be sure to disconnect the day after you leave and connect the day before you arrive. If you have 'last month" deposits with services, such as the water or gas company, request your refund. Remember the TV and Cable companies at both ends of your move
