As the days get warmer, you can easily find people moving from all over town. In March, the moving part, the excitement and joy of welcoming a new house, was short-lived, though Eden’s Moving are charge little. There must have been an experience where the moving costs suddenly snowballed, and the costs leaked out of the house without knowing it.
In the hectic moving season, I will show you how to move frugally and smartly so that you can reduce unnecessary expenses and live a little more comfortable and pleasant in your new home.
Disposing of electronics
The same is true for electronics. If you want to reduce the waste disposal fee you have to pay to put up a waste sticker, you can find a company that sells used appliances. For home appliances that need to be thrown away because they are not used, you can use the free collection service of the Ministry of Environment.
It is a service that visits your home and collects five or more small households or one or more large households free of charge so that you can dispose of broken or obsolete electronic products.
Disposal of various household items
In general, household items such as books, clothes, and toys are the easiest to dispose of because there is no cost to dispose of them. But I think I will use it someday, so I keep it instead of throwing it away. As the number of small household items increases, the amount of luggage that needs to be moved increases, so you should boldly throw away items that have not been used for more than a year.
Especially in the case of childcare products, as it is one of the most actively traded items on second-hand trading sites, it is good to trade with the idea of using it cleanly and sharing it with others.
Dispose of household groceries
When moving is near, there are some things you should not forget—just emptying the refrigerator. Recently, as the use of refrigerators and kimchi refrigerators has increased, many households own three or more refrigerators.
At least one week before moving, you should refrain from shopping and empty the refrigerator by throwing away or cooking old food in the refrigerator. Leftover food often melts or leaks during moving, destroying other items, so it is best to empty the refrigerator as cleanly as possible.
Reduce cooling/heating costs with insulating wallpaper
Before moving in, it is often the case that the painting of a new house is completed in advance. Then, depending on how you paint, you can enjoy the effect of saving living expenses.
Insulation wallpaper, which has recently been gaining interest, helps maintain a constant temperature in the house by applying a thin layer of adhesive and attaching it without any raised spots to close the gap and prevent heat from escaping.
Reduce noise between floors with flooring
The floor is also where we always touch. There are many easy-to-use products that anyone can easily install without going through the hands of experts, such as sheet-type flooring materials. By researching and selecting various functional flooring materials, such as reducing noise between floors or making eco-friendly ingredients, you can reduce minor stress in life.
Move small furniture in advance to reduce moving costs.
If the house you are moving to is not far from the house, you are currently living in. It is good to start filling the space in advance after the flooring and wallpapering work is finished. Also, moving furniture or luggage that can be moved first and getting help from a moving company can save you money.
