Let your bank and magazine subscriptions and close friends know about your new address beforehand.
3) Checking storage areas:
You can do this step 2 days before your Move out date to be sure that nothing will be left behind. Check the spaces above refrigerator, behind the stairs or the cabinet. Look around for inconspicuous objects like air conditioners and mirrors that you pass by everyday, but might not think about. Make sure that nothing will left unpacked.
