Moving? Here's Your Cleaning Checklist

Moving just adds more tasks to the seemingly endless to-do list. Between finding the perfect new home, transferring your services to your new residence (internet, cable, electric, etc.) and tying up all loose ends at your current place, sometimes seemingly small tasks can get forgotten about. Don't let cleaning be one of those things that slips through the cracks of chaos.
