Tips to consider when moving out of your parent’s house
Moving out of your parent’s house is a big step in life. While exciting, the milestone comes with a lot of new responsibilities. Reduce anxiety and streamline the process by preparing for the changes that come with living on your own.
We’ve put together a few tips to consider, from budgeting and finding a place to live to decorating and maintaining your new home. Whether you’re a college student moving into your first apartment or a young professional looking to buy your first home, these tips will help you navigate the process and make the transition as smooth as possible.
Create a budget
Moving out of your parent’s house is an adjustment in several ways, including financially. The process can be expensive, so it’s important to create a budget and stick to it. Make a list of all the expenses you will need to cover, such as rent, utilities, groceries and insurance. Be sure to factor in the cost of a self storage unit if you plan on renting one.
Find a place to live
The early bird catches the worm. Start looking for a place to live long before you plan to move. Consider factors such as location, size, cost and amenities. Make sure you visit potential places in person and ask questions.
Declutter and downsize
Moving into your own place is a fantastic opportunity to declutter and downsize your belongings. Go through your possessions and decide what you need, what can be left behind and what can be stored in a self-storage unit. This process can save you space and money on moving expenses.
Organise your belongings
It’s important to stay organised during a move as there’s a lot that will be going on at the same time. Make a list of everything you need to do before and during the move, and add a deadline to ensure you stay on track. Make sure to include tasks such as transferring mail and packing your belongings.
Take advantage of self storage
Renting a self storage unit can be a great way to keep your belongings safe and secure while transitioning to your new home. It’s also a great way to store items you may not have room for in your new place, such as seasonal decorations, sports equipment or old keepsakes. Be sure to choose a reputable facility with good security.
