Republic Moving and Storage may be experts in long distance moving but can also help you with saving money once you’ve moved!
Moving is stressful enough without having to worry about things like decorating. You don’t have to spend a ton of extra money to make your new home look how you’d like. Let’s talk about how you can save some cash while still living in a beautiful home.
Recycle and Upcycle
This tip is great because it requires spending little to no money. You can use certain things you have lying around and upcycle them into new decorations. Do you have a chalkboard lying around that your kid no longer uses? Great! Add it to your kitchen to write your grocery needs on or the kids extra curricular schedules. Did you just finish a food that came in a glass jar? You could wash it out and use it as a vase, a container for pens and markers or even a place to put larger utensils like spatulas and tongs.
Move Things Around
If you’ll be doing some long distance moving to get to your new home, you’ll have plenty of time on the road to think about how to decorate the new place. You could set everything up just as you had it or you could move things around to give it a fresh new look. This could be simple things like changing out the end tables in the living room for the ones in your bedroom. You could put the artwork you have in one bathroom and move it to the office if it’s appropriate. Take some time during your move to draw up new floorplans or make lists of what could go in which room.
There are plenty of different online marketplaces that have “free” sections. They also are mainly people selling their used stuff for cheap. If you don’t mind used furniture and decor, this is a great option to save money and help someone else get rid of something they no longer need.
