Can you believe it? 2019 is already coming to an end. We are only 5 weeks away from the new year and for many people, a new year brings a new home or apartment. If you know your lease will be ending by the end of December, you should really get started on planning your move. How will you pack and move your stuff? Will you need to store some or all of it in a self-storage unit near you? How much is your new rent going to be? Better to have answers for all this now than to be scrambling when you are quickly moving up against a hard deadline!
Your New Budget
The most important thing you must figure out before the end of this year is your new living arrangement. Where are you moving and how much will you be spending every month? This should include not only rent but utilities and even the cost of daily commuting to work and shopping. Do you have any new goals with the new place you choose, such as spending less on rent, having more space, or being closer to work? Having a budget for all of this will help you stay within a sustainable range that will make your goals much more achievable.
Once you have your new residence squared away, it is time to figure out how you are going to get everything done in the amount of time you have left. Some schedules you have control over and some you don’t. The day you have to be out of your current place and even the date that the movers take your things might not really be under your control. Getting your current apartment cleaned and having all your stuff packed is totally under your control, so get started early!
Storage Units Near Me
Using a self-storage unit can be the perfect way to give yourself options and safeguard your things while you decide what to do about them permanently. Maybe your new place does not have a lot of space, or the next place you move into is just temporary and you have yet to find your long-term home. In that case, you need a storage space.
