We’re moving into a larger place before the end of the month! We’re currently living in a small bedroom and are moving into a GIANT [for us!] apartment with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. We’re so excited that we will finally have a nice place with all of our things. We currently store almost everything we own in different storage units. We’re consolidating, decluttering, purging, cleaning, making memories and everything in between at the moment. If it’s a bit slow around here that’s why! We are super excited about this place but our fingers are still crossed – they’re finishing the last of our checks before giving us the a-ok to move in as tenets. We’ll hopefully find out tomorrow if they’ve accepted us but they have been so positive about everything since we make plenty and have stellar renters history so we’re not worried. We get our keys on the 22nd and then the big ‘move in day’ is on the 25th. We’re buying pizza, beer and a trip as a group to the $3 theater to our friends that help us move. There’s so much to do, but we’re beyond excited for this opportunity to live in a really nice place that offers lots of amenities that we’re looking forward to using [I’m looking forward to the 24 gym access and he’s looking forward to the 2 pools!]. I spent all last weekend in my storage unit going through all my boxes of things to make sure that I really wanted to move things and not donate them. This weekend we’re going to his storage unit to do the same.
We picked up out first set of moving boxes this afternoon and packed our first boxes. We also had date night tonight and watched Jurassic Park 3 [we wanted to watch the whole trilogy!] and had bad food. The bad food included guacamole with chips, brussel sprouts and cheese sticks with red sauce. So not really good for you and not really bad for you. We need to spend some time together before really starting the moving process I think.
Right after we finished the movie we packed up six super big heavy boxes full of books, things on shelves and videogames. Tomorrow we’ll get more boxes and continue on. Right now we’re planning on have everything packed up and staged by the end of the week so we can take next week pretty easy to lower our stress.
Got any great moving advice?
