Moving? Notify Your Friends:
If you have children, take pictures of their friends and start a scrapbook. Collect
addresses and phone numbers so your kids can keep in touch at holidays and other times.
Have your friends pick up any items you are giving away. These should all be out of the
way before you begin packing in earnest.
Collect any items which you have loaned to neighbors or friends. Return those which you
have borrowed. Pick up items on lay away, anything being repaired or dry cleaned, film
being developed, and any other similar articles.
Donate other things to charity. Get a receipt for tax purposes.
Start saying farewell to friends and neighbors. Making just a few calls a day will give
your more time as moving day approaches for last minute things.
Give your new address and phone number in writing to your friends when you see them.
Continue using up your coupons (movie theaters, free passes, green stamps, pool passes,
etc.) Give the rest away.
