Toilet paper, tape, scissors, utility knife,

handsoap, dishsoap, kitchen sponge,

hand towels, cleaning supplies,

garbage bags, flashlight, matches,

emergency kits with bandaids, snacks

insurance from your mover or from a third-party insurer.

Cut back

The less stuff you own, the less you’ll have to move. Whittle

packaging like bubble wrap or crumpled newspaper. Try to get

used boxes and newspapers from friends and family and from

local stores, and if you have to, buy fresh supplies. Don’t forget

markers and labels to clearly identify what’s in which box.
