Save money on moving boxes by picking up used boxes from someone
else who has just made a move. Check the want ads and Craigslist. Many people just want to
get rid of them as quickly as possible when they are done with them. They
will give them to the first person who comes and gets them.
Another options is to check with a local mover, and see if they
offer used boxes for a discount.
some additional frugal tips to save money on
- Check the stores in your area
to see if they crush all their boxes, or have a delivery day and will give empty
product boxes away.
- Don't pack items like towels
and blankets. Use them as filler to protect other items.
- Use every item that holds
storage for packing, including suitcases, wardrobes, drawers, etc.
- Declutter before
you move. Moving is a good time to "clean house" and get rid of items you
haven't used in years.
