… to bring you breaking news!
I’ll soon have one more person living in my place 😀
The BF’s lease is up in two short weeks (sort of caught him by surprise), so he plans to move to my place to buy us some time while we hunt for the ideal rental. We both think it’d be best to have ‘our’ place, rather than ‘my’ place, cause let’s face it, I know I can be a little particular! There’s so much to organise, in the next two weeks, and then looking forward from there, I thought I’d share my list with y’all
The next two weeks
Get spare cardboard boxes from work/fruit & vege shop for the BF to pack Make space in my wardrobe for his clothing List all BF’s bigger ‘stuff’ (furniture etc) with measurements
- Make space in my house for his furniture (and a plan for what’ll be at mine in the short-term)
Speak to my parents about temporarily storing some of the BF’s furniture Go to open for inspections – see the places, but review the leasing agents… Make inquiries with agents about renting my place, and the likely rent Make a budget – rent I’ll receive, bills for my house, bills for a new place, rent I can pay out, savings goals Work out suitable rent/cost sharing between me and BF in the interim periodHalf of what my neighbours pay Speak to my cousin about borrowing his trailer for move day 1Find a car with a toe bar first!
- Collect details on utilities etc for BF to cancel/change his address
Book cleaner to do ‘final clean’ at BF’s place (then I’ll likely want to stay there!)Saturday/move out day Book in accountant (for tax)and discuss best $ options with house/loan etc
- Bore readers with inventory posts 🙂
Share my new rental ‘wish list’ with readers, and my ‘what I (inadvertently) love about my current place’
After finding a new place
Procure even more boxes Start packing up my house
- Patch holes and paint (ie Lack hanging shelves, maybe hanging birdcages?)
- Switch-a-roo washing machines (? Leave bf’s at my place, and take mine to new place, perhaps)
Set up new utilities Advise all of change of address(yikes, but I’m good at it now!)
I’m sure there’s more for this list – so suggest away! And ask questions too, cause that’ll prompt my brain!
