I wouldn’t change anything until after you close. But from now, until then, everytime you get a bill, pay it and set aside, and make a note to change the address on that item. The same with any magazines (or catalogs, if you really like them).

As soon as you close and have a date to move, you can start changing addresses and then the USPS to forward all your mail. You can complete this form online.

Make a list of what you need to change because that’s honestly the most time consuming part.  The priority is USPS, because they’ll forward mail, etc. from the old address, so if you don’t remember to change something, you’ll get it (just delayed a little).  If it’s a magazine, no problem to be delayed, although if it’s a bill it might be a little dicier.  My bank is “smart” and accustomed to movers (USAA) so I can make one call/online change and they’ll update all of my products without me needing to remember to do it.  And, you can set some of this to happen in advance.  So set the USPS and bank to change on 2/2/12, and if the close doesn’t happen on the 1st, then go edit the change.  (Just make sure you catch it in time – ask how much time you need.)
