Tips For Having A Smart Move


(NAPSI)—Every year, some 40 million Americans move into a new home. If you’re one of them, consider taking steps to ensure your move is a smart one:

1. Create a to-do list. Write down everything you need to do before you’re settled in your new place. Include budgeting, decluttering, hiring movers and updating important records.

2. Pack a first-night box. Once you get to your new home, you won’t want to hunt for must-have items such as box cutters, tools, device chargers, bed linens, toiletries—or the coffeepot.

3. Stay connected to your world. Set up your Internet, TV and phone service in advance by visiting That way, you can stay in touch with what matters—family, friends—and the Internet. You’ll be able to explore food delivery options, shop online for home goods and order supplies for your new home. And the best part is, you can kick up your feet and watch your favorite shows at the end of the day.
