Some of my friends and I are thinking about moving out, and I was wondering if any of you had any advice or tips on anything, from how to save money, to simple meal ideas, to things to make sure we plan for, or anything else.
Just basically get some good sized boxes, big enough to hold a lot of stuff but not so big that it takes 15 men and a small crane to carry them. Like it's been said, make sure boxes are clearly labelled (not stuff like "Household", because that's vague. Could be anything. Things like "Plates, Glasses and Cutlery" is more descriptive"). Also give yourself plenty of time to pack your things and sort it out ready then you aren't spending as long clearing out.
I'd have thought it would be the other way around - if you don't have things assigned, some people will feel they're doing more than others. If everyone has assigned chores that they agreed to, wouldn't that prevent problems?
Yeah it's alot more expensive than you first expect. Our rent was 800. We'd end up spending about 1200-1400 depending on the month for food, gas, cell phones, cable, internet, hanging out with friends...etc...it accumulates quick.
