- Use household items you already have to organize your stuff. Toilet paper rolls make great devices to store cords and prevent them from being tangled.
- Track all expenses – some expenses may be tax deductible.
- Don’t get stuck having to throw out food in your fridge before you move. Start planning two weeks ahead of time to curb your grocery shopping and start using up items you already have to avoid waste.
- Find free boxes. Check sites like Kijiji’s free section, put an ‘ask’ out on Facebook or ask friends and neighbours.
- Use t-shirts to wrap breakable items like dishware. You will need to purchase less bubble wrap and you are packing more items at a time! When you run out of t-shirts, try using towels or pillow cases.
- Purge your stuff before you start packing. The less stuff you have to move, the less it will cost you. And if you find stuff you no longer need or want, sell it to cover some of your moving costs.
- Don’t get rid of that old packing tape! Before you buy new, stick that old roll of packing tape you think is no good anymore in the microwave for a few seconds to reactivate its stickiness.
By doing these simple things, you can reduce the expenses related to moving. Taking the time to properly prepare for a move well in advance is the key to not only saving money, but to being organized and less stressed.
