Money Saving Hacks
  • Look in your home
  • Visit your local liquor store to ask if they can give you beer & wine boxes. Find out if they will throw any away or recycle that you can give away. Inspect the boxes, if any are worn you can use them to put away lightweight items like linens and towels. *Remember these boxes are not new, so be wary of what you put in them.
  • Bookstores

FREE BOXES: Wine Boxes are great to put away your kitchen glasses since they already come with dividers. Also, depending on the type of box you use, some already have handles on the side.

Budget Moving Saving Tips

Instead of Boxes Use Suitcases, Laundry Baskets, and Hampers

Packing Smart
  • Use storage bins and luggage to put away out-of-season clothes (i.e. winter coats). No need to unpack, ready for storage.
  • Seasonal items: holiday decor
