saving money when moving

Boxes: you can often get discarded boxes from stores. Also try freecycle.com and craigslist.com for people giving away boxes from their own moves. For wardrobe and other large boxes, search online for the best price.

Packing materials: Save space and avoid buying expensive packing materials by using clean pillowcases, sheets, towels and even workbooks and pads of paper to cushion and wrap dishes or other breakable objects.

Moving from one place to another: If you don't want a totally do-it-yourself move, see if you can get a moving company in your home state to pack a Pod or other huge storage container with your furniture, then have friends and family move boxes in. Arrange to have the container delivered to your new address, move the boxes out, and pay professionals to unload and put together the furniture.
