We're moving on Friday - did I mention that?! smile - and wonder if anyone could remind us of what should go in the 'moving day' box? I'm ok with kettle, mugs, tea/coffee/squash, toilet paper ...................... but the heat is causing my brain to fry!

All suggestions welcome!

Money, biscuits, screwdriver?, cleaning stuff (our house was manky when we moved in)

Light bulbs
All purpose cleaning spray & cloths/kitchen towel
A flat and a cross head screwdriver
Camera
Cold champagne & 2 glasses
Local ( to new place ) takeaway menu

Sheets to make the bed up as soon as - that's the last thing you want to be doing late at night when you're knackered and want to just collapse in bed.

Toothbrush and toothpaste

Clothes for tomorrow

Alun keys. Since just about every bit of furniture we own is put together using them.

Radio (essential unpacking music)

Chocolate

Definitely a takeaway menu

Children's comforters
Cleaning the new house stuff
If your car is big, bedding so you can make the beds up quickly and at least be able to go to bed!

We just moved at the weekend. I'd add teaspoons to your list

Excellent! We're only moving 5 miles away, thank goodness smile

Toilet rolls, remote controls, keys to new house, keys to old house to give back to estate agents.

Good luck!

charged mobile phones, laptops/expensive gadgets, and a document bag with passports etc.

Overnight stuff, so you can lay your hands on towels, toothbrushes, PJs and spare pants if it ends up taking all day.

Hand soap for toilet

This is handy as am moving in 5 weeks. <eek>

I read to pack a suitcase like you're going on holiday.

Also bedding.

And kettle/drinks.
