Relocating

The Move Is On! A Handy Moving Checklist!

Our Guide to Moving House, including a handy, printable checklist!

 

The day has finally come – we landed in Ireland this morning to begin a new chapter of our lives. We’re so excited, nervous and relieved. The last month has been very busy with goodbyes, packing and wrapping up our lives in the US. We had cars to sell, furniture to offload, boxes to pack and presses to empty. All of this on top of being mammy to Jack, and settling back into work! I couldn’t have done any of it without help (shoutout to my amazing sister-in-law Katey, who gave up her summer to help out with Jack!), and to-do lists. A lot of to-do lists!

I’ve shared some of the steps in preparing for our move home in Our Guide to Selling Your Home, and How We Shipped Our Pets to Ireland. These were obviously the bigger tasks on our relocation to-do list, but the smaller tasks can’t be ignored either. No matter whether you’re moving to another country, or staying local, there are steps that everyone should take when they move house. Today I’m sharing my moving checklist – I hope it helps make your next move a little easier!
