Karen Bernetti, a home staging consultant and fellow Active Rain blogger from Southington CT, recently posted this great article on a way we can save some money and help Save Our Planet, something that is near and dear to me.
When you are looking to move, look for used boxes (LCBO and food stores will often give them to you).
If you have recently moved, reather than throwing all your moving boxed away, consider donating them and/or letting someone else re-use them.
Here's a great way to save money AND the environment! Did you know that U-Haul has several programs that allow customers to get together to share rides and moving boxes?
This benefits customers, communities AND the planet by keeping moving supplies out of the landfills and reducing fuel consumption by sharing rides. Check out the U-Hall Box Exchange to learn more!
U-Haul also has the Armed Forces Connection that helps soldiers and their families save money by sharing rides and storage rooms with other soldiers.
The U-Haul College Connection® connects college students with each other so that they too can share rides and storage rooms. College students check out the all new student storage and shipping service today!
