Moving is often rated as one of life’s biggest stressors, and the financial aspect is certainly one of the reasons it sits near the top of the list. Fortunately, there are ways to save money and significantly reduce your stress levels during a move.

Have a Moving Sale

Why pay to move belongings that you don’t want in your new home? Before you begin packing, go through your items and sort them into piles you want to keep, toss, or sell. Organizing a moving sale before the big day saves you money on moving items you don’t need or want, and can even make you some money. 

Ship Your Books

Assuming you aren’t moving locally, hauling around your collection of books may seem like a pain. Fortunately, there’s a great way to relocate your books while saving a ton of money! USPS Media Mail®  is ideal for moving books, records, and DVDs. It’s important to note that there are stringent guidelines for Media Mail® boxes, so make sure the items you’re packing qualify before dropping it off at the post office. 

Move During Off Season

Summer is the busiest time of year for moving companies, and that means premium prices. Booking your move during fall or winter is a great way to save money. Have to relocate during the summer? Skip a moving date on the weekends, since that’s when rates are the highest and schedule a move in the middle of the week instead. 

Get Creative With Packing Supplies

You don’t have to pay a ton of money for high-quality packing supplies. Hospitals, pools, and labs all have boxes of chemicals shipped to them regularly, meaning they have strong and sturdy boxes that they may be willing to give to you. You can also ask friends who have recently moved or post on social media requesting free moving supplies.
