An Author's Tips On Moving Out Of Home
Posted on 2014-09-27
Boomerang Box has been around a long time helping people with their packing needs when they move homes, but we always love fresh new ideas from people from all walks of life. We stumbled across this article which has Author Cindy Babyn sharing some of her tips for dealing with moving out of the home for the first time. She believes young people are faced with several obstacles when they move out of home. These include finding the right roommate, balancing a budget and homesickness.
Roommates: she recommends having an honest conversation with a potential roommate to find out what they're really like and whether you can live with them. Try to find a person with similar character traits to your own. Budget: in order to live within your means, Babyn recommends listing all your known expenses - everything adds up, even the haircuts and taking public transit. Looking at where your money is coming from and also how much you have will help you to see whether you can pay the bills at the end of each month. Homesickness: if you leave the feelings of homesickness alone, it could develop into depression, which you definitely don't want. So to battle homesickness caused by leaving your loved ones, Babyn says you should reach out to them as often as you can on the telephone and by using social media tools such as Facebook. We at Boomerang Box agree that moving can be a really big event in your life and whether or not it's your first time to move or second, or even if you're a veteran at moving homes, there can be a number of issues that can make or break the whole situation of relocation. We are able to help you take care of the move while you worry about settling in with our plastic moving boxes for rent, but in addition to what Cindy Babyn has shared, we'd just like to throw in a few tips of our own: Don't rush into things: take your time to shop around for the right home and the right person to stay with you. You should also not be afraid to talk to talk to your room mate about issues that you are having so that you can sort things out and continue in an amiable relationship in your apartment Plan carefully: Know where you are spending your money, but not only that, be frugal and look for alternatives. You may be accustomed to certain things, but where you can save money, is money set aside for a rainy day like in case you need new curtains or a new appliance for the kitchen. Keep busy: It really is not easy being in a new environment, so put yourself out there to get to know your surroundings! Meet your neighbours and find activities to do, whether with your room mate or even alone so that you can get out there and familiarize yourself with your area.
Whether or not you have had trouble with moving, we know that with a little planning and positive
