Moving is not cheap, but you can make it that way these tips. We are experts in moving since we do it all of the time. As long as you follow these tips, you will end up saving money when compared to just flying by the seat of your pants and just doing whatever comes your way.
The less you have to move, the cheaper it will be to move. Go through all of your things and get rid of anything you don’t absolutely need. There’s a rule when you’re trying to unclutter: If you haven’t used it in a year, you don’t need it anymore.
MAKE MONEY WITH A YARD/GARAGE SALE
You can make money by taking all of the times you no longer need and sell them. You can have a yard/garage sale one weekend, and then use eBay, Craigslist or some other online classifieds to sell the rest of it. Whatever doesn’t sell, go ahead and donate it. You’ll feel good about it.
LOOK FOR CHEAP MOVING SUPPLIES
You need boxes, tape, and packing materials. You can find all of these for a low price or free. Head to large grocery stores for the boxes. Usually, they stock at night, so that’s the best time to go and see if you can get some of the boxes before they throw them into the compacter.
You can sometimes get some packing materials to go along with it. When they have plates and other breakables, you can use it for your breakables.
USE UP THE FOOD
Don’t throw away all of the food in your fridge. Instead, plan to use it all up. If you can pack the rest of it, that’s even better. Go ahead and pack up the food, so you can use it in your new home.
WATCH YOUR SPENDING
While it’s fun to buy new décor, don’t go overboard. You can usually find good deals if you wait and watch the items you want to buy. With patience, you can save hundreds of dollars. Your new home isn’t going anywhere and it will be fun to continue decorating it as you find the perfect items for the best prices.
