Moving Week- Day 5 Leaving behind your house

If you missed any of the posts this week you can catch up here. We've talked about supplies needed for moving, Pinterest ideas I tried out while moving, general tips and tricks, and home showing preparation.


Today I have a list of a couple suggestions for when the day comes to move out of your home.

  • For our buyer we left a packet of instructions for our home. Inside of the packet we included the instruction booklets for the appliances that were staying, a parks and recreation fall schedule we had recently gotten in the mail, the trash schedule mailer which included what could be recycled and curb side yard waste pick up, and a list of quirks about the house. The list of quirks included how the dishwasher sometimes needs an extra click to start but it works great, what light switches go to what, and when we replaced the roof and other important dates. 
  • We were close friends with our neighbors. We had helped each other out with projects. We had learned valuable skills about maintaining our home from them and we had developed a friendship. Leaving was hard for us so we got them little treats to show them we would miss them. I went to the dollar store and loaded up on candy. I wrote little poems to go along with each stack of candy. Here are the three different poems I used. 


Dear _____ Family,
You are such Sweethears (tarts)
Who were our Lifesavers
and help us our a Good and Plenty
Big (Red) Thanks, The ____ Family



The ______ Family,
