Planning for a residential move can be stressful. Even if you are excited about the move, the idea of packing and moving may fill you with dread. We have three moving hacks to help you reclaim some sanity and save money too.
#1: Start Planning Early
Planning for your residential move months in advance will allow you to shop around for the best moving company rates. Plus, you’ll have time to organize your packing, which will make the entire move-out and move-in process easier. When you don’t wait until the last minute, you will also be more likely to save on early-bird deals for moving companies and packing supplies.
#2: Repurpose Existing Baskets and Containers
Using your existing wicker or wire baskets and other containers for packing can help you cut costs on moving boxes. Fill them with small houseware items for easy transport. Use towels and sheets to wrap anything fragile instead of purchasing tons of bubble wrap.
#3: Donate as Much as You Can
A new home is a fresh start, and now is a great time to donate any items you are no longer using. Go through closets and the kitchen to find anything you haven’t used in the last year. It’s far easier to donate to a local charity than to pack it up and stick it in your new closets. Plus, some charitable organizations may provide a tax receipt to save you a little at tax time.
