Packing materials

Cartons and packing materials can be expensive if you go at the last minute. To reduce your budget, anticipate as much as possible their collection and hunt for bargains in specialized stores or on the internet.

Address change

Post, gas, electricity, water, insurance, bank, landlord … some of your suppliers will charge you a fee to effect your change of address or change your contract. In some cases, the sum can reach several tens of euros. Take advantage of your move to make you compete … your former suppliers will certainly be more generous. Inform the public services of its change of addresses.


As a general rule, food expenditures will be underestimated. Restaurants, home delivery, frozen foods, or already cooked dishes … you will certainly prefer these more expensive feeding methods for the first few days after your installation. There is a good chance that you are too tired or too busy to get into shopping and cooking.
