Order supplies.
Order boxes and other supplies such as tape, Bubble Wrap, and permanent markers. Don’t forget to order specialty containers, such as dish barrels or wardrobe boxes.

Use it or lose it.
Start using up things that you don’t want to move, like frozen or perishable foods and cleaning supplies.

Take measurements.
Check room dimensions at your new home, if possible, and make sure larger pieces of furniture will fit through the door.
