One of my best tips is to hire a moving company – they will make your lives so much easier! Better yet, eco-friendly moving companies reduce waste by taking more efficient routes, and even using trucks that utilize biofuel rather than gasoline.
I recommend selling items you no longer need first. Facebook marketplace is a good resource for this. You can also gift items to your friends and family. If you have to donate your items, look into specific places to donate rather than generic thrift stores. Thrift stores often get overloaded with items and they don’t always actually get used.
