I always get excited when I'm about to move house (I do it often enough), but then I remember how much of a chore it can be!
There's always so much to do two weeks before moving, but just so you don't forget, here's what I normally try to get done:
- Packing: This one is the most obvious, and also one of the most boring! Try to start packing your stuff up slowly throughout the two weeks and don't leave it all to the last day. Whenever I pack in a more organised fashion I always seem to lose less stuff.
- Bills: Again, this isn't much fun either, but it's something that has to be done. Make sure you either cancel, change the address of or set up a new account for all your bills at the new address. You'll need to do this for your: Council tax, gas, electricity, internet, TV, phone, TV license, water and insurance. Most of this can be done online nowadays, which makes it a lot easier!
- Cleaning: This one is by far my least favourite of the lot! When you leave your house you should make sure you leave it in good condition. This is especially true if you are leaving rented accommodation - as a letting agency will try and withhold some of your deposit if they have to pay for a cleaner.
I think that's the most important bases covered. Although, I always find that something gets forgotten whenever you go through a move!
