Moving is an emotionally, physically and financially burdensome proposition, but there are lots of ways to save time, effort and money by being smart about how you do it. From the outset, be sure to make ample use of both yard sales and charities to get rid of things you don’t really want to move. Make wise use of towels and blankets (for padding), reuse boxes and bottles, and don’t be afraid to call some eco-friendly professional movers to help you out.
- Try a good old fashioned garage sale in order to rid your home of extra clutter that you will no longer use.
- Search your home for cardboard boxes so that you do not have to go out and purchase new ones.
- Many items qualify for recycling services, even if they are not able to be donated.
