3 Ways to Save Money During a Move
Is the cost of moving leaving your wallet empty? Here are three easy and quick strategies to save some money in the process.
1. Packing boxes yourself. Companies that offer full-service box packing and moving are a lot more expensive. If you have a small apartment and just general stuff, rather than expensive fragile heirlooms, you could pack it yourself into moving boxes and pay for the pick up and delivery only.
2. Declutter. Move only the things you love. Don’t take along duplicates of anything and always estimate whether is would be cheaper to move it or to buy it new once you arrive at your destination.
3. Sell what you don’t love. Websites like Craigslist are great for making some quick money selling furniture, electronics and sport equipment you don’t want to take along. Not only will you save money because you’re taking less stuff, but you will actually earn some as well.
