So how do you say goodbye? How do you bring this chapter of your life to a satisfying close– one that ends on a hopeful note?

We all try to save money in as many aspects of our lives as possible. Moving is no exception to the rule. People come up with the most creative ways to cut expenses, things like opting to sell your possessions rather than transport them or ask friends and family and offering to pay them in pizza. All of these are harmless ways to save on your move. Renting a moving truck is one way to save money that may also pose a danger under certain circumstances.
