When you are leaving your old home, you may be in a rush and small items could get left behind when packing. This can be frustrating, and if you don't double-check, it may cost you money. Keeping a checklist of your most important small items could ensure that your move goes well and with as little stress as possible.

You should check every room of the home when leaving, but you want to look out for many electronic items that you will likely use up until the time you move. In your room, you probably packed up your television and alarm clock, but you could always forget your mobile phone charger. Making sure you have this will prevent any headaches with purchasing a new one, as well as preventing your phone's battery from running out during your trip.

In the bathroom, you may forget multiple items. It is easy to overlook belongings such as electric shavers, curling irons and hair straightening tools. Additionally, you will want to make sure all of your soaps and shampoos are accounted for and packed.

When in your living room, make sure you have belongings such as remote controls and any excess cords and plugs that you will need. This will help you easily set up your new living room in your next residence.

Make sure you look in the kitchen for any items that were forgotten. With so many drawers and cabinets, it is very possible you left something in there. Look for utensils, pots and pans, or even oven mitts. By taking care of this, you will make sure you did your due diligence to ensure that you are ready to leave your old home.
