Money Saving Tips: Cut Moving Costs

Moving any time soon?

Yesterday, I helped my newlywed brother and his wife move and they didn’t want to spend extra money on boxes and packaging peanuts, so we got creative!

We needed a place to put their nice dishes, so we got one of their laundry baskets, packed the dishes around some clean clothes, and we were able to transport these fragile things without any problems!

The clothes made for great cushion and kept the glassware safe!

So next time you move or transport a fragile item while traveling, consider using something you don’t have to spend money on: your own clothes!

    I’ve done this several times before and it works great! Not only do you save on the packing supplies, but it also takes up less room overall. I”ve moved with just a car before and you get real creative trying to shove everything in!!

  • Be careful – if it’s something precious and you’re going a long way, or you’re turning the box over to someone else (like a friend or a professional mover), pack it in bubble wrap or peanuts. I made the mistake of packing an antique canister like this, and of all the things I moved (15,000 lbs) across the country, this was the ONE item that broke. I’m just sick about it. I should have used proper packing material because it’s not something I can ever replace.
