Answer: Begin your endeavor by requesting the deposits on utility services, including a good customer letter stating your on time, full bill payments. Coupons are more valuable during this time, you do not have to get into extreme couponing, but saving on groceries, entertainment, as well as taking advantage of specials for the actual moving event can go a long way. Don’t forget to downsize, removing the junk, and stuff you no longer want or need can help save costs on moving materials as well as transportation. Trash it, donate it, or sell it. Yard sales can help accrue funds for moving.
