So you’re moving soon to a new apartment – the problem is it’s smaller than your old place. Another issue is that you are on a tight budget right now. So how will you go about the move smoothly? Below are some tips when you’re moving to a tiny apartment on a budget. Keep these in mind and we promise you’ll enjoy the move without many worries.
Learn how to let go of the things you don’t need anymore.
Sometimes you still want them, but admit it if you don’t need them anymore. Take this chance to declutter and welcome new vibes in your new apartment – that means leaving the clutter and the “trash” behind. If there’s plenty you won’t be taking with you, put them up for sale so you can make extra money too.
Prioritize when it comes to furniture.
Whether you’re bringing your old furniture with you or if you’re buying new ones, learn how to prioritize. This means that those you won’t be needing much but only keep for decoration or for some sentimental reason, you can just let go of them for now.
If you are buying new furniture and you’re on a tight budget, then buy those that you absolutely need first. For instance, you need a bed where you can sleep and a table where you can eat or have a drink or even work. Buy those things first before getting a new couch, a new area rug, a new coffee table, and so on.
Get help from friends.
Moving can get pretty expensive when you hire people to help you out. Instead of hiring, get help from your family or friends. Serve some drinks and food too as a way of saying thank you. For sure, it will be a very fun experience.
