Moving Again

April 8th, 2014 at 01:16 am

I'm moving... again... I'm losing my current roommate and will be needing a new one. In fact two!

I'm moving to a 3bdrm/2bth apartment and will be charging $500 for each roommate but it's all inclusive. Meaning cable (no HBO, Showtime, Starz, Max), water, electricity and internet.

I'm moving in less than 4 months but my question is this.

Should I start packing little by little now? Such as purchase a few boxes if I can't find any for free and start packing here and there? Or just wait until a week before I move?

    I would start packing now, and use the time to declutter/organize as you pack. That way you only move things you will use in your new place. Start with packing the seasonal things and stored things that you don't use on a regular basis. Then, as you get closer to your moving day, you can pack the things you use regularly. The moves that have always gone the best for me are the ones where I decluttered as I packed. Of course, there's still always the last night where I would just be stashing things in boxes trying desperately to get it all finished! Good luck!

    I was going to say wait....four months is a long time to have stuff packed up. Do you have a back up plan if you can't find roommates?

    That's a good point, CCF. But you can still start with the decluttering even if you don't start packing yet.

    thanks ya'll! that's what I was thinking. unpack/declutter

    also i'm wanting to sell some stuff as well.

    I don't have a backup plan but I've been getting bites. I've already started advertising. I know where i'm going to live already as well. the price is the same as what i'm already paying but with 2 additional roommates it should be a LOT easier for me to not only keep my head above water but to also pay stuff off.
