Moving Checklist: Change of Address

When we were preparing to move this summer, a friend gave me a checklist of all the places I needed to be sure to change our address.  It was extremely helpful and I wanted to share it.

Note: Be sure to change the address for your spouse/partner as well as for yourself.
