Moving on a Budget
Moving is certainly stressful and it can be expensive. In fact, moving is number three on the list of life’s most stressful events behind death and divorce. Part of, or for some, most of that stress can be due to money issues.
It’s so tempting to move everything with you, but not all your items are worth the effort, money or time to move. The first step is to sort your possessions. We recommend getting rid of everything too damaged or worn out and putting aside items in good condition that you’ll never use again. Then you can start that Gumtree account back up because these are perfect for selling.
Free Packing Supplies exist!
From boxes and packing tape to bubble wrap, there are options out there to reduce these incidentals. Most of the time, you may find yourself borrowing supplies from friends or family, but did you know, some businesses just have hoards of boxes just lying around? Liquor or hardware stores are great for sturdy boxes.
Clean your place yourself
Whilst professional cleaning may sound like an amazing idea, it’s definitely something where you can save a lot of money. Start cleaning about 2 weeks before moving day and begin to call in all the favours your family and friends owe you to help.
