Moving in together? Self storage can help
Moving in together is a huge step in a relationship. Maybe you and your other half have decided you’re spending all your time together and there’s no point in having two homes, or you’ve just got engaged or married. No matter the circumstance, while moving in together is exciting, it can be a little overwhelming if you are unprepared.
Here are five tips to help make the move-in together run smoothly:
Take the time to declutter your current home and decide what is worth keeping and what must be thrown away, stored, sold or donated. Any valuable belongings that don’t fit it into your new home or that you don’t need just yet can go into storage.
- Find the perfect location
An important decision to make is whether both of you are moving into a completely new home or one is moving in with the other. There are numerous factors to consider when moving such as affordability, travel time to work and if the accommodation is pet-friendly.
- Establish ground rules
Develop a schedule where household chores are divided up, to ensure that you each know what you’re responsible for. Clean up as you go along rather than letting mess build up – especially if one partner is more stringent about tidiness! Don’t let unnecessary arguments happen over a sink of dirty dishes.
- Sort out finances
Sit down with your partner and discuss who will pay for what. Make sure it’s fair to avoid any disputes down the line. Fair is not always equal and often the person with the greater income contributes more towards the household costs.
