Yes! Today I got a call that I have been waiting and wishing for for almost two months. We’re moving!
The thought of a move started to form in early August, and then we tried to make it happen in October but that didn’t work out. We wanted to move into a smaller apartment, which usually isn’t the case for people at our age, but since our current place is as big as some houses around here, we wanted to do it the other way around. And today I got the call!
We will change apartments with our next door neighbor which calls for the easiest move in the history of “us”. Also, having given away things for almost two months makes thing a lot easier. And I am happy because I will definitely make this a packing party experience!
So why are we moving? The new apartment is still large, but there will be one less room to clean – the room we now more or less use as storage, where all the kids’ toys end up (on the floor), a room that we never use! The biggest perk though is of course the money we will save, or rather, that we won’t spend on a “storage room”. It’s almost $300 per month!
The money saved will be used for two things. One, paying of debt, mainly on the car which will be done in just a couple of months. Two, saving for our trip to Iceland (which we have postponed until next summer).
This makes me all giddy to think about, both the living smaller and saving money. Happy!!
