5 Things to Figure Out Before the Big Move

Moving for most people isn't just packing up and driving away. It takes special consideration and planning before the day. Whether you are moving a mile or 3000 miles, there are a few key things that need to be done.
  • 1. Determine your budget. You'll need to figure out how you are going to move, whose going to help you, what you need for a down payment or deposit on your next place, will you need to stay in a hotel during your move? All of these are costs that need to be figured out before you start planning a move. Write things down and calculate!
  • 2. Figure out what you truly need to take with you. Taking trash with you on your move is a big no no. Go through your things and throw items away if necessary.
  • 3. Contact your utility company. This is something many people overlook. You need to make sure you aren't getting charged for your old place, either have them transfer your bills and usage, or cancel and find a new company.
  • 4. Make sure you change your address. This is also a biggie many people forget, if you already know your new address, a change of address is always better sooner rather than later.
  • 5. Make sure you have places to put your items in your new home. Whether it be ceiling storage, a pantry, garage storage or anywhere you choose, stock up on these items, the last thing you want in your new place is clutter.
Make your next move go smoothly by following these 5 quick tips. Happy moving and actually make sure you are enjoying your new place.

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
