SAY GOODBYE TO UNUSED STUFF
PURGE and PURGE some more. Mari Kondo the crap out of your old place! If you haven't worn it, used it, or totally forgot about it until now, get rid of it. Just don't go throwing it all in a dumpster, I'm sure you've heard the saying 'One man's junk is another's treasure". Host a virtual garage sale, call 1.800.GOT.JUNK, or find places to donate to locally, like shelters or churches. Someone is always in need.
Before you fork over your cash for bubble wrap and packing peanuts, consider finding free options first. Repurpose items from around your house like garbage bags, hampers, towels, lonely socks, and old clothes. If you work in an office or have friends that do, ask people to save the paper and other supply boxes, craigslist is also a good spot to look. If you do find yourself needing to purchase supplies, you can find a decent number of inexpensive supplies at Amazon, Home Depot, and Walmart.
PACK THE BASICS YOURSELF
Pack up something daily, that way you're not up to 2 AM before your move day. Start with some of the easy stuff you don't do anything but stare at most of the time like, Knicks knacks, décor, pictures or maybe whatever is in that junk drawer.
