Cut the Binding Ties

Do you know, how many contracts, memberships, and other ties you accumulate over the years? You'll find out, when you move. All these organisations and companies and people need to be notified of your address change, unless you want to end that relationship - in which case you have to cancel early enough.

I sent cancellation letters to TV/radio company, phone company, internet service provider, electric company, house insurance, liability insurance, sports club, automobile club, cell phone company and one of my credit cards. Change of address notifications will go to four different banks, my tenant in the rental apartment (which I'll keep for now), the post office and (of course) my brothers and sister, my parents, a few friends, some of my colleagues.
