Notify your child’s school and daycare at least a month before your move. Get your child’s school records at least a week before your move. If you are moving while school is still on, make sure to have your child’s record transferred to the new school at least 2 weeks before. Arrange with the teacher to have your child complete additional school work and projects. Luckily, before you even got your new place you would have already considered the schools and/or daycare in the area. At least 2 weeks before your move you should already enroll your child to the new school and/or daycare so that your child will not miss school time.

Keep your office hours and if you do have to pick up the kids from school and leave your office early to do so – then make sure you get into your office earlier to make up the time. Follow the same protocol of an office.

You may need to do your last visit before your move, to take care of prescriptions that you may need. This way you will not run out in case you have not chosen a new physician in your new location.
You are living frugal if you rent movies rather than buying them. Why is renting movies being frugal? You can join a service like Netflix and get your movies for a small membership fee. That will also save you gas because it comes in the mail. You can also rent movies for $1 a night at Redbox locations. Buying movies can be very costly.
