Moving can be expensive. From packing supplies and movers to rental vans and gas, the costs can add up quickly.
Want to save on your upcoming move? Here’s how:
- Get free boxes from local grocery and convenience stores.
- Use recycled mailers, flyers and newspapers as packing materials.
- Declutter and donate first to cut down on your load.
- Call in friends, family and coworkers for help with manual labor.
Make sure to save receipts for your moving expenses, too. Many moving costs can be deducted from your annual tax returns. Consult a certified accountant if you’re not sure how to proceed with this.
