Storing Smarter Every Day

I have always been the kind of person who loves organization, which is why inheriting a bunch of items from a long lost aunt was really difficult for me. I realized that I couldn't part with things, but I knew that I had to store things in a smart way if I wanted to have enough room. I started going through things, nesting boxes, and working on a viable solution, and before I knew it, things were really coming together. I wanted to start a blog for people who need help storing things, so that you can get the advice you need.

5 Tips To Remember When Moving Your Separate Ways With A Roommate

For many single adults, moving into a place with a roommate is a logical financial decision. You get to split the costs of utilities and rent and get to avoid furnishing the place all by yourself. While this kind of living arrangement works out well at the time, it can make things a little more complicated when you and a roommate decide to move out into your own places. A lot of what you have in your current residence can be owned by one person or the other or  it a can be jointly owned. As you prepare to call the moving company for help, here are a few good tips to keep in mind. 

Decide what will be kept and what should be sold. 

If the two of you have purchased items by pooling funds, you have to decide on what you will do with that property. For instance, maybe neither of you could afford an entertainment center alone, so you went in half and bought one. You will have to make decisions on these pieces that you bought together, whether that decision is to buy the other half of the property or to sell the property and divide the profits. 

Get a headstart on divvying up what is considered communal property. 

You may have mostly solely owned property in some parts of the house, like in your bedrooms and bathrooms, but there can be a lot of shared property in communal areas like the kitchen and living room. Before the movers have arrived, make sure you have taken the time to decide who is going to take what and what belongs to who. 

Decide how you will arrange for moving service professionals. 

Will you have the movers arrive on the same day for both of you? Or will you be moving on separate days? Are both of you going to need the same size moving truck? These are all things you will need to know before scheduling the moving company. Keep in mind that it can be helpful to have all properties rightly divided before the moving company comes to the house or apartment for an estimate.

Invest in unique moving supplies for each of you to use. 

Make things easier on moving day by investing in unique moving supplies for each of you to use. For example, one of you could use all white boxes and the other can use all basic brown boxes.
