Another absolutely-free step you can take is to de-clutter your home. You are going to be moving anyway, so pack up extra clothing and accessories that you won’t miss for a few months. Do not put the boxes in your closets. Take them to a storage area or neatly stack them in your garage (which should be nearly empty to start with). As a rule of thumb, closets should be half empty, have nothing hanging at eye-level in the doorway, and be neatly organized by item and color.
