Guess who has a house under contract?! We've completed the inspection and option period and, well, are pretty committed to getting this new home (next month!). The funny thing is that the day after I posted about shopping for houses and whined about being outbid on three homes over the last few months, a house came on the market in our price range... in an amazing neighborhood... with a lot of our our wants and most* of our needs!
*more on that later...
Obviously, if I showed you pictures now or went on and on about my amazing new house, a tree would fall on it or my lender would deny my pre-approved application or something and I'm just too superstitious to go that route! Anyways, this all means that it's officially time for us to start working towards the big move. After reading back over my thrifty moving tips from almost two years ago, I decided to cut back on boxes, truck space, and gas by donating a ton of stuff:
Luckily, we've been planning ahead for this move and realized another thrifty moving tip earlier this summer...
Thrifty Little Tip: Use pots for all of your new plants. Your house will still look nice when you sell, but you'll have the added bonus of bringing over a little housewarming gift to yourself on moving day. Thankfully, we thought of this back in July and potted some of our extra wedding flowers (2nd pot) so that they'll move with us (and yes, we should probably continue to rake the lawn until then).
Have any thrifty moving tips of your own?
