Home Renewed

(I was gonna call this post "Home Found" but this is more appropriate...) So today I turned in my application to remain at my present apartment complex. It's got all the amenities I need, plus the great location, and plus I don't have to change too much. They're supposed to let me know when they've found a place for me, and I'll move sometime in May hopefully. So now I get to worry about that great task we never look foward to: moving. Next month I'll probably start packing up my stuff. Anyone know where I can get boxes??

Aside from paying for boxes (U-Haul, etc.), sometimes you can get boxes from grocery stores. Just call the store you usually shop at and ask if they ever give away empty boxes (from unpacking and stocking the shelves).

usually it's first come, first-serve. Not the world's best boxes, but they work and you won't be moving far.

We also used plastic storage containers; if you can get 'em for cheap, that means you have them for long-term, future moves.

I can probably get boxes for ya. I'll send an email to my coworker and see if she'll have any laptop boxes soon. I used a ton of those when I moved.

Ask in Linens & Things. They gave me some a few years ago.

Plastic things are handy, but you have to have a place to store them.

So are you committed to renewing with them then when they find something?

I dunno. I understand that you like the location and you know they have everything and you'll continue to be comfy. So staying with them makes definite sense. Duh. But it would be fun to try something new too. Did you look around a lot?

The only thing that would suck is if your apartment people found you a one-bedroom you didn't like. Maybe it's right next to the road, or in some other annoying place- or maybe you notice a horrible stench coming out of the neighbor's apartment when you go to look at it. Can you tell them, "no, not this one."

When is your lease up again?
