Checklist of responsibilities for your move to a new state.
There are so many responsibilities and costs that come with a move to another state. Here are a few that have drained my pockets this past month.
** POST OFFICE: Be careful when changing your address at the US Post office online, when you give them your cell phone number, (required) they add you to a list of sales calls and I have now repeatedly and daily, received sales text messages since my move.
** DATA: For 2 months now I have gone over my data usage allowance on my cell phone because I have needed directions everywhere I go.
** DMV: Scroll down for your checklist of what to bring to the DMV if you have moved to Connecticut. Sadly, I had to make the trip 2x and each visit was over 6 hours.
I have moved several times in my life prior to this but usually it was within the same County. These are things I didn't think about when we moved 5 hours away from home...
Connecticut DMV packing list:
- Gallon of water
- Essential oils for relaxation
- Camping chair
- Sleeping bag
- Book (s)
- Credit card with large limit
- Cash for the cash only cafe
- Anti-bacterial wipes
- Oh, and your pre-filled out, pre-printed paperwork and supporting documents.
I moved to the Point Beach neighborhood in Milford, Connecticut in June of 2018 - these are my experiences of owning a new beach home and relocating to unfamiliar territory. ~ Shelly Straub
