Our Moving To-Do List

Yes, of course I have a moving checklist. So far, here it is. I'm sure it will end up ten miles long before our closing date gets here!

- Get rid of all extra clutter that we don’t want to take with us (old bits of wood, my now broken elliptical machine, etc.)
- Arrange for change in Home Insurance Policy
- Have ADT disconnected for closing date
- Contact Union Gas and Hamilton Hydro
- Set up new home telephone and internet
- Cancel Rogers home phone and internet
- Finish up home projects:
  • Adirondack chairs
  • Living room paintings
  • Kitchen chalk board
  • Dining room table
  • Living room chair

- Set up mail forwarding through Canada Post
- Plan a ‘first night’ package for personal things
- Pack a moving essentials box for supplies we’ll need right away (garbage bags, scissors, light bulbs, etc.)
- Request time off from work
- Start packing things we don’t use often
- Reserve truck(s)
- Contact Ikea, Home Depot and Visa
- Update TD contact info online
- Transfer prescriptions to a closer Shoppers
- Pick up new living room curtains/rod if possible
- Pack up remaining things, labeling clearly
- Make sure fridge is empty
- Pick up dog poop (the joys of puppy ownership)
- Leave note for new owners (new address for stray mail and congrats on your new house sort of thing)
