Moving -- Money saving green tips
We haven't been doing the dumpster thing, but we have been donating. Goodwill, our church, and my daughter's preschool has been the benefactor of many toys. Took a few shopping bags full of books to our local library to be re-used. We've had one yard sale, which proved to be too time consuming and not really worth it. Craigslist has been awesome. We've sold all the furniture we wanted to sell through craigslist, and some that wasn't in great condition was put in the free section. Yay re-purposing.
In the end, moving across the country greenly is best done when you aren't having to move very much. It's counter productive to have to buy all new stuff when you get there, so I'm hoping to buy second hand things when we get out there to furnish and decorate our new place with. I was quoted a price of $1 a pound for everything I had to move across the country, eeek!
After everything is all packed, it's time to paint, and show the house. Hubs leaves Tuesday for Colorado, and I'll be heading out a few weeks after him. More later!
