Now, nobody likes moving. I mean, the actual MOVING part. Of course getting to be in a new home is usually an exciting experience, but getting all your crap there – that’s the hard part. 

This will be our third move in two years, our last being eight months ago. So we’ve definitely learned a thing or two about moving into a new place. 

We’ve been apartment living the past few years, so we definitely don’t have as much stuff as an entire house may have, so we may have it a little easier.

But that doesn’t mean we don’t have anything! So far into packing I’ve filled well over 20 boxes, and I’m not even done yet! It’s definitely an exhausting process to do all by yourself, but manageable. 

So to save yourself some cash on packers and movers, I’ve got a few tips for ya.

Cute DIY Shelves For The Home

Shelves are one of the greatest way of adding some storage, decor and practicality all at the same time. There are so many different variations you can do for shelves – there’s practically endless possibilities. 

Sometimes shelves can be mighty expensive though (even if they’re literally just a piece of wood!).

They can be used in the bathroom for extra storage and a little decor, in the living room to hold photos and books, or in the office for a pop of color and art. 

With us moving within the next month, I’m so excited to experiment with our extra space by adding some cute shelving. 

I’ve gathered together some awesome DIY shelves from some talented bloggers, in order to save a few bucks but still have some adorable and practical units.

What I Wish I Knew Before Moving Out

Life is definitely full of so much trial and error. Especially when it comes to finding the place you’re going to live. 

Not that I regret moving out of my parents house into my own apartment with my boyfriend AT ALL, but there are a few things that would have been nice to know first. Some I can totally get not knowing until you experience yourself, but others I am here to share with you to give ya a little heads up.

So a little background to begin with so you know my situation:

I currently live in an apartment with my boyfriend of five years, and we both moved out of our parents houses in August of 2015. We really didn’t have to worry about the apartment hunting process, because Justin’s sister was finishing up her lease and moving out of town, so we were just taking over her place! It definitely made it easier. 

We now live in a different apartment building, one that we hunted for ourselves last summer. Moving was to get a bigger place with two bedrooms and two bathrooms. Otherwise, there was really nothing wrong with our first apartment – it was great (just tiny!)

Now, with moving twice in the last two years and having two very different apartment experiences, I’m here to share some insight and knowledge into this whole apartment/moving out situation.
