8 weeks before you move:

- Set a moving budget. This would help you monitor your expenses.
- It is better that you plan to leave in advance for your moving day. If you can, move on a Friday. That gives you the weekend to relax and rejuvenate yourself to be able to work on Monday again!
- Choose a school for your kids in the city that you are relocating to. Regardless of how far you are moving, the new school would need transcripts of your child, so request the old school to provide you with the necessary documents.
- To get rid of unwanted stuff, organize a moving (garage/yard) sale. Donating to charity is also a good option.

- Before your belongings could go on the moving truck, you should create an inventory sheet of all your valuables.

- Taking pictures of all your electronics before unplugging them is a good way to jog your memory when you’re reconnecting things such as your TV or stereo!
- Place all your hardware in labelled bags so that the furniture can be easily reassembled later.
- If there are any minor home repairs pending, get them done for this could decide whether you would get your security amount back or not, especially if you live in an apartment.
- If you’re moving interstate, then, you should have your vehicles serviced. You wouldn’t want to deal with a breakdown in the middle of the move!
- Research your new neighbourhood/community to find shared interests. Look out for the best eateries and hangout spots to prepare yourself for life in the new city.
