Are you getting ready to move?

Council on Aging Thrift ShopIf you know there is an impending move in your future, you may want to try to use up or get rid of some of your items in order to save time and space (and ultimately money).

For example if you have a lot of food in your refrigerator or cabinets, why not start using them up so that they don’t have to be moved? Packing and caring for food items that need to be kept cold or frozen can be way more than you want to handle on a busy moving day. So why not get them eaten and not have to deal with that worry? You may want to reduce the canned goods and boxed items that you can to avoid moving those heavy boxes as well.

Are there things you have been hanging on to that you really don’t use any longer? Or clothing items you haven’t worn in years? This may be a great time to drop off these items at your local consignment shop (for extra cash) or donate them to your local Goodwill or Salvation Army for a nice little tax write off.

Why move things you don’t have to? Start thinking about your move early and save time and money later.
