I have found, over the numerous moves I have made, that the simple act of making up the bed does a great deal to make a place seem more like home. Setting up the bathroom helps too, but also stems from pragmatism: you can sleep on the couch, or even the floor in a pinch, but you need the bathroom to be in working order pretty much from moment one.
