12. GET IT BACK.
Try to remember the things you’ve loaned out or left at service businesses and get them back. Things like dry cleaning, shoe repairs, appliance repairs, safe deposit items, the earrings you loaned your sister. Be politic in your requests though. No need to sour a relationship over something you’ve lived without all this time.
13. TAKE YOUR MEDICINE.
Be sure you have plenty of prescribed medications (packed with your personal items), important medical records, vaccination verifications for the kids, and, if possible, recommendations for doctors in your new location.
14. JUST IN CASE…PACK A SMALL SUITCASE WITH “MUST HAVE” ITEMS YOU’LL WANT HANDY WHEN YOU ARRIVE.
Include things like batteries, tooth paste and brushes, shampoo, combs, kids toys, pet food, canned soups and easy-prepare food stuffs, a pan, paper plates and cups, simple tools, a knife, candles, light bulbs, a transistor radio, a telephone, a knife, a first aid kit.
