If you missed my post on Saturday, then you might not know that I'm moving! After being offered my first full-time job, I started scouring the Internet for apartments since I will be moving about an hour and a half away. Saturday was spent in my own version of a House Hunters episode (complete with a lunch to discuss all the options), and that afternoon I signed a lease. So in the next week or two I need to:
1. Buy an entire apartment's worth of furniture and kitchen supplies. The positives of living in campus housing in school is I didn't have to deal with moving furniture or signing a lease throughout the summer. So I am starting from scratch, with is both exciting and overwhelming at the same time. As someone who has a difficult time deciding which restaurant to eat dinner at, you can only imagine me in a furniture store with rows of sofas, tables and beds to choose from.
2. Pack up all of my clothes items that I moved into my parents house not too long ago. Remember when hanging pictures in my room was on my to-do list a few weeks ago? Yes, well now those are coming down along with everything in my closet that I just took time organizing.
3. Try and transport all of said clothes and items in my small hatchback. When it comes time to move (or when tall people have to sit in my backseat) I always wish that I had rethought getting a small car. Thankfully I have become an expert on getting as much as possible into the trunk/backseat area.
4. And finally, unpack and settle in. Hopefully all before my first day on the job. My Pinterest boards are finally going to be put to good use and eventually an apartment tour will be posted in the future.
Any helpful tips on moving/relocating are much appreciated, as well as decorating on a budget.
