rmparadis and HeatherK both suggested to organize yourself with a moving binder.
Buy a binder or expanding folder. You want to be able to keep everything you need handy.
Car titles/bank loan paperwork
Birth certificates/pass ports
Current bills- phone, cable, credit cards, etc…
Medical-current physicals, shot records, dental records
Keep all moving receipts
Make a “transfer binder”. Color tab for different things. Utilities, Lease, Orders, Household goods sheets, your Expensive list with all your DVD’s TV’s serial numbers etc, lists of DVD’s or book collection etc. Then every time you move, you just add to your lists of books, serial numbers etc, and just redo the utilities and lease sections. Or if you don’t lease it goes housing info. This way you have all your important numbers, confirmation numbers and turn on dates for utilities, your lists to check when you unpack.
I have found this extremely helpful because I don’t have to write the numbers down AGAIN for serial numbers, for the companies that need my lease I just pull it out because we all know everyone wants a copy. Orders are organized along with household goods and I know the companies number is right there.
Over the years I have made a new binder for every move and after we move from that place I put all the info back into it and then if we have a problem from that time, I just go and find it in the binder.
My husband was already in the CG before we met and after I used this way, I am OCD, so I love to be organized. He couldn’t believe how easy everything was when we moved. Dity receipts, household goods, orders, pet vaccinations, were all neatly organized and color tabbed out. It was so stress free and all my papers were together.
