Are you planning a big move this summer? Well, readers Karen and Laura are… and they need your help! Check out their emails below:
My husband just got a great corporate job with a great company but due to some glitches we found out late and we only have ONE WEEK to move! The new place is 10 hrs away and we will get a hotel halfway. So I am not sure about moving the freezer? And filling with food? We have been downsizing already, but I still have a long ways to go. The biggest thing is my stockpile!!! Do I just let it go and rebuild? Or do I pack it the best I can? I have about 6 months (at least) of toilet paper and paper towels. I have cereal, toothpaste,pads, toothbrushes, etc. Basically the “easy” stuff to get by couponing. We have already bought plastic totes and will try to move as much in those as possible. I am sure other readers go through the same thing, and might have tidbits for other aspects of moving as well.
My husband is getting a new job and it is several states away. Most likely the cost of relocation will be out of pocket for us. Do you know of the best way/deals available when moving?
So you know the drill! Please share your best money-saving tips and tricks to have a successful and budget-friendly move.
