I am so excited to inform you all that we are moving out of our tiny apartment to a nice house. While renting a house versus renting an apartment is actually more costly, I am hoping that the benefits and decreases in costs from other areas will far out way the added rental costs. The house we are moving to has more space, has a wood-burning stove in the living area, and its source of water is from a well. Other thrifty bonuses for having a house instead of an apartment, will be that I can line dry our clothes and have a garden (if I can manage to have a green thumb). As we are working towards paying off debts and saving right now, we are not yet ready to purchase a home.
So amidst the chaos of moving, there will probably be a slight decline in posting. I will probably not be doing a lot of shopping either. Shopping will be limited to at the moment necessities, unless there is a deal I can’t bear to pass up. And I foresee a few days of being without the internet as we transfer our services over. I will keep you all updated on this.
And here are a few postings to come from me that you can look forward to: Moving on a budget, and I’ll walk you guys through my attempts at starting a garden on a budget. So far in my life I have not had even a tint of green anywhere on my thumb. I’ve even killed Golden Pothos plants; plants that are notorious for their hardiness and ability to thrive in the worst of circumstances.
Oh, and one more thing I am excited about in regards to moving: There is an Aldi not more than 10 minutes away from our new home! I can’t wait to check out that store!
So as I am in the middle of packing, I’d love to hear from you all. What are some ways that you save time/money when you are moving?
