Moving dates matter.
Timing is everything, especially when it comes to moving. Some of the most expensive times to move are on a weekend, during a holiday, or at the end of the month. Those are high demand times because no one wants to use a precious vacation day to move. To avoid sky high prices, schedule your move on a weekday to score a less expensive price.
Use it or lose it.
Sort through your junk drawer (or drawers) and toss the stuff that hasn’t been touched in years. Donate old clothes, appliances, or toys (you can write off donations on your taxes). It feels good to declutter and the lighter the move, the easier it will be.
