I’m diverting from what I was going to post as moving is constantly on my mind so I might as well talk about that!
Yes, we’re moving and in a pandemic! It’s fun. It’s really, really fun. Thankfully we have places lined up to go but we still have a whole house of stuff to downsize then move to multiple places.
So this is how it’s being done.
I can’t tell you how sick and tired I am of looking on Pinterest, getting sucked into some damn article that tells me the same styling tips that I can do which I actually absolutely can not. I am absolutely not allowed to change any fixtures, any stupid-ass temporary flooring or cabinetry. At all. I’m really lucky though because we’re the first people to live in this new, modern house.
But you might be so lucky. You might be living in an older place but still can’t change any lighting or fixtures, or you can do it to one area but not another. Look it’s a weird rental game out there no matter where you live, and it’s important to make it feel comfortable for yourself and anyone else you might be living with.
So here are some things that have helped me in the rental places I’ve lived.
There is a blog post or article about every facet of moving. From helping pack up a house by a weekly countdown to Feng Shui-ing a new closet. If you’ve ever moved, you’re well aware how stressful the whole experience is and there are plenty of articles that talks about the stresses of moving. However, it’s not the actual anxiety of moving I’m talking about. It’s your wellbeing after you’ve plopped yourself down in your new place.
