It’s now been 3 months since I moved out. WHAT THE ****
It feels like I have lived here my entire life. 3 Months in and I have my little routine set up – clean every Saturday morning, hoover every 2 weeks, and big shop every 2 weeks.
yawn yawn adult stuff. But I kinda just wanted to write a little something about the whole idea behind moving out. A lot of my followers are my age so if you are thinking of moving out, hopefully this might give you an insight.
The before process, is very daunting, all the money you spend before you’ve even moved into the property, all the bills you have to set up. Its pretty scary, but it’s so important you ensure you can afford it, because living on your own, doesn’t mean you can run to mum and dad every time you need a twenty for food with friends. Check out how much you earn a month and how much you’ll be spending on bills. Cut back on spending like eating out so much and eat whats in your house. Put every penny you have into a little money-box as you’ll be surprised how quickly it adds up.
Have a clear out- if your moving clear things out that you havent used or need anymore, otherwise you’re just bringing unneccessary junk with you which will take up valuable space.
Look around- don’t go with the best supplier, look at costings and prices available, save as much money as you can and shop shop shop. this also applies to looking in charity shops. You will be surprised at some of the things people sell second-hand.
The night before I moved out I just sat in my room and cried, not because I was sad, just because I was scared and moving out at 21 is a very daunting thing to do. But since the day i’ve moved in I haven’t looked back and its become a place of sanctuary. My own little home for me to design and enjoy with my friends. I can make as much mess as I want and there is no one to nag or moan at. I mean yeah I can’t go travelling for a few years, but I needed to move out it was just one of those things that had to happen. There is so much pressure on getting everything done here and now in these few years but in reality I have the rest of my life to get on with it.
I am so happy, but if you are thinking of moving out, check your funds, ensure you feel it is right, and don’t be scared.
The best things in life are the ones that challenge us and scare us, but they test us and build upon the person we are.
And most importantly, don’t ever look back…
Lots of love,
