Moving to new Palm Beach homes is an activity that can quickly turn from pleasant to nightmarish. Having to lug around heavy furniture and delicate items is one thing but once the estimate comes around, it’s almost like opening another can of worms. Moving doesn’t necessarily have to come at a huge cost if you don’t mind being frugal. Use these tips to save money next time you decide to move.
Forego the boxes and the bubble wrap. Head over to most liquor stores and they’ll likely be quite willing to part with their empty boxes which are already quite sturdy since they’re used to transport heavy bottles. For the bubble wrap, swap it out with towels, sheets or newspaper. The internet is a great place to look for people who may be giving away extra items they don’t need like packing tape.
Get rid of things. Some people will suggest buying new furniture instead of moving your old stuff in. You can actually do this without spending too much money by selling some of your larger furniture and then using that money to purchase new equivalents. Alternatively, you can always donate things you don’t need to charities.
Stay away from storage units. On the one hand, that huge couch is staying put instead of having to be lugged around to your new Palm Beach homes yet you’re still paying money to keep it stored away. Again, it may be wiser to simply get rid of it.
