Tips for saving money when moving

Your bank account takes a huge hit when you're moving, so anything you can do to make it more affordable is worth trying. On top of finding deals during Amazon Prime Day sales, here are other ways to hold onto more of your hard-earned cash.

  • Plan ahead:
    Start planning your move well in advance. This gives you time to compare prices for movers, packing supplies, and other essentials.
  • Declutter before you move:
    Sell, donate, or discard items you no longer need. This reduces the amount you have to pack and move, saving on moving costs.
  • Use free or cheap packing materials:
    Collect free boxes from local stores, or use household items like towels and blankets for packing fragile items.
  • Compare moving quotes:
    Get quotes from multiple moving companies and negotiate for the best price. Don’t be afraid to ask for discounts.
  • Move during off-peak times:
    If possible, schedule your move during the middle of the month or on weekdays to take advantage of lower rates.
  • Leverage Prime Day deals:
    Take advantage of Prime Day to purchase moving essentials and home setup items at a discount.
