Moving can be an expensive process, and all the little costs associated with moving your home always seem to add up so quickly.  Relocating doesn’t have to as expensive if you plan ahead though – there are many ways you can save on your upcoming move that don’t include skimping on the essentials.

Garage sale – It may seem at first like it is unnecessary, but once you start sorting through your belongings you will find that you have accumulated many belongings in good condition that you haven’t used in years – if at all.

Use everyday items – Everyday items can be great for packing your belongings, so you save on the cost of purchasing extra packing supplies and space by using other items that are making the journey as well.  Pajama t-shirt, socks, sheets and blankets all make for great packing supplies, not only saving you money but also saving you space.

Pack yourself – It may seem like it won’t take long for professional movers to pack up your belongings for the move, but looks can be deceiving.  You are paying your mover in San Jose by the hour for something you could have done in the weeks leading up to your move.

Find other boxes – Head to your local stores for free boxes.  Liquor stores and drug stores especially have a whole stack of boxes they simply throw out at the end of the day.  There are also a variety of container rental services that provide you a green, affordable alternative to boxes, and sometimes they can be safer for your belongings.
