“Time is money,” as the saying goes. But time is so much more than money. Time is life. Waste your time, waste your life.
In fact, it may sometimes be more accurate to say that money is time. You trade seconds of your life for every dollar you earn. So, it stands to reason that if you save money, you save time and you can add seconds, minutes and even hours to your life.
If you take the time to plan your move in advance, it will save you a lot of time and money later.
Pack ahead. If the movers show up on moving day with you still packing your belongings into boxes, they will have to wait for you. Which would probably stress you out quite a bit, not to mention that the movers are waiting on your dime. And that’s not good for anyone, except maybe the movers, who are still getting paid.
Time your move. The time of the year can make a big difference in the amount of money you spend on your move. While most people move in the summer because of better weather, moving companies are more likely to give you a discount if you move in the winter, when business is slower.
Compare your options. Find several good moving companies, and compare their strengths and weaknesses (fees, additional services, etc.). See Trustworthy Moving Companies, Where Are They? for further useful information about finding the right moving company.
By following these moving tips, you’ll save time and money. As you know, money is time, and time is life. So, when you save money and time, you save your own life.
