There is no better feeling than knowing that you have found your significant other. Now that you both had a great time getting to know eachother, it is time to take that big leap and move in together.
First of all you need to figure out how much space the two of you will need
- Do one or both of you need a home office? ...If you both need one, are you willing to share the space?
- What items are there double of? Which duplicated item is being kept?
- How much space will you need for your items? You can measure the larger items to get an idea of the square footage you will need just for those items, so you can be sure to find a place spacious enough.
- What do you do with all the items you are getting rid of?
- Sell it - earn some extra cash for the down payment
- Donate it - bring it to a donation center, some places will even come to you to pick up the items
- Trash it
- Do not wait until after you move to go through your stuff
- Everything you move adds to the cost of the move...whether its time or money
- It will take longer to put everything away
- Your new place will feel cluttered
Where are you going to move to?
Are you going to stay at your place, their place, or find a new place together? Things to take into consideration are:
- Time it will take for both of you to get to work
- Location - city, suburbs, etc
- Amenities - Such as is there a park nearby, schools, bus route
Good luck with your venture!

You just bought a new hot tub, piano, safe or grandfathers clock. Now it is time to get it home. Most of the big box stores do not deliver. Some specialty stores deliver, but leave the item on your driveway. Shopping on line and buying used, usually means you will have to pick the item up yourself. These item are heavy and require experience. The last thing you need is to hurt yourself while trying to get a piano off the back of your pick up truck.
Call your local mover and ask them if they handle these items. Most moving companies will give you some idea of pricing over the phone. This can help you when negotiating the price you want to pay for the item.
