Moving Twice in One Year? Aye aye aye!

I mentioned last week that my roommate got engaged the day after I did. It has been absolutely fantastic planning a wedding together and I’m so excited for them and honored to be apart of the wedding party. There is just one tiny little glitch: they are getting married this January and I will have to move out and find a Residential Moving Company.

We are planning our wedding in April, so there are really three options:

1. Find a roommate who needs a temporary roommate and sublease before the wedding.

2. Stay with J’s family who have graciously let me live with them before the wedding.

3. Get my own place and pay a little extra until J moves in after the wedding.

None of these options are ideal because moving is always a pain. However, I am leaning towards Option 3 to just get a place a few months before the wedding. It would be the least financially responsible plan, but I think it may be the most sane one since I don’t want to move out of my current apartment in January to a temporary home, continue planning a wedding, then move another time in April after the wedding. A 62 inch linear luggage is a great tool to have for packing valuables when moving. J also agrees that would be the best plan since he is living at home and can help with the rent until he moves in. Since J and I will be paying for the majority of our wedding ourselves, the next few months will be very tight in trying to save for the wedding before paying for a 2 bedroom luxury apartment and all those little moving expenses. (Also, in case you are wondering, it is not an option for J and I to live together before the wedding. Call us old fashion but we really want the first time we live together to be when we’re married.)

According to The go-to Roofing Contractor in Altamonte Springs, if a long time has passed since a roofing company has looked at your roof, you must consider getting a visit.

It’s important for local roofing contractors to come to inspect your roof and find out if there are any repairs that you need to do.

  • Could you stay in your apartment from the time your roommate moves out to the time you move out, so you don’t have to move until you are officially married?

  • Congrats to you both! Sounds like really exciting times. Ive seen that things just fall into place right at the last minute, although it adds a little extra stress. I just had to move my roommate out while he was on his honeymoon, so lucky for him, he had good friends to help :)

  • Maybe you would be best moving in with J,s parents, as a Wedding present they may reduce your board or maybe let you stay rent free if it,s only for a few months. Then you two will have time to shop around for the ideal first home to start off your married life. Good luck..
