Take the Crazy Out of Moving

I am in the process of moving and it is a beast. Where to start? There are some ways to lessen the stress. Start out by decluttering. This is a very good time to donate or trash things you are not going to need in your new apartment or house. Then figure out what you are not going to pack and put that aside inn a duffel bag or a box.

Next, to save some money, check out Craigs-list for people who are giving away their moving boxes for free or at a low cost. There are also companies that deliver slightly used boxes for less money. I went with the latter route.

Label, label, label! Put the name of the room the box is going in and whatever is in the box. Be as specific as you can so you can find things quickly when you move.

Then, take a deep breath and call some friends, ask them to help pack, while you get them some pizza and beer! Happy moving!

Spring Cleaning and eBay

Well it’s almost that time of year to start clearing out closets and bookcases and more. Some things always go to storage, while others should be donated and others still can be sold.

Why am I suggesting this? I always find that there are some purchases that either no longer fit, or I haven’t used. You don’t want to give them away. You other choice is an online auction site like eBay.

It’s very easy to do. Take a nice picture of your shoes, coat, drumset, etc.
Then post it on eBay with a little information and you are in business.

To attract buyers, start bidding at a reasonably low price and keep your shipping costs free or low. I usually keep my auctions at about 10 days. The really interested buyers will come running at the end of an auction to get great deals.
