Packing & Moving House Advice:
  1. Get a dumpster & downsize your life - Marie Kondo your life https://konmari.com/ 
  2. Ask for help -- set yourself up with a moving support system. This includes sorting, cleaning out, donating, packing, organizing, and more
  3. Donate housing goods to shelters and other places => suggestions
  4. Books - donate to your library or sell back Half Price Books, online, etc. 
  5. Transfer of your medical, dental, vet, and other records -- this might happen after you find your new providers; bring with or ask about the transfer of these records
