Helping your College Student move in without (ALL OF) the Stress

Moving into your dorm or apartment as a college student is extremely exciting – until you factor in packing, transporting your stuff AND unpacking. Here are some tips on how to make moving in a little less painful —

college-living

1. Pack an overnight bag containing all the essentials.

The worst part about moving is never knowing where any of your stuff is when you first touch down at your new place. Relieve some of your stress by packing an overnight bag that has everything you need for a day or two so you can shower and decompress after a long day of moving.

2. Wrap your breakables (dishes, glasses, etc.) in clothing.

3. In addition to labeling what’s in your boxes, so you know what to unpack first.

Nothing is more frustrating than getting everything in your new place and then having no clue where it goes. Have your boxes labeled so that you (or your movers) can drop the boxes off in the rooms they are meant to go in. Saves you time in the long run.

Check out these Amenities that Drive Up Rent

While you’re apartment hunting it is important to know that there are key factors that may raise the price of your monthly rent. Here the scoop—

1. Living near an interstate

If living near the interstate or a highway is important to you, then the added cost of having an apartment a mile or so away from one may drive the cost of your rent up.

2. Elevator

The convenience of having an elevator in your building can still be pretty costly. On average, Priceonomics estimates that an elevator will add $120 to your monthly rent.

3. Fitness center

Priceonomics’ study shows that people pay an average of $90 a month for a fitness center, so if working out in your own building isn’t all that important to you, consider spending your money elsewhere.

4. Laundry in building

Jen (Stephen Garlick), raised by the noble race called the Mystics, has been told that he is the last survivor of his own race, the Gelflings. He sets out to try to find a shard of the dark crystal, a powerful gem that once provided balance to the universe. After the crystal was broken, the evil Skeksis used sinister means to gain control. Jen believes that he can repair the dark crystal and bring peace back to the world, if he can only find the remaining shard.

How to Declutter Your Apartment

As an apartment owner you don’t quite have the luxury of storage, but sometimes things just start to pile up. Before you know if your apartment is cluttered and you don’t know where to start. We have compiled some steps to take the stress out of your last ditch effort to Spring clean before Summer —

cleaning

Shred piled up old bills and pay stubs

 Store your warm clothing

You’d be surprised about how much room you’re missing out on in your closets. Either vacuum seal old clothing to create more space or box them up and move them to the laundry room.

Clean out your refrigerator and freezer

This sounds like a real pain, but just think of it as setting yourself up for a less heavy duty cleaning job for when your lease is up.

Wash your blinds and/or curtains

Because they actually are dustier than you think.

Deep cleaning doesn’t have to be miserable! Enlist your partner or kids with the duties and blast your favorite music while doing it. The sooner you get this done, the quicker you get to be carefree this Summer. Worry about your tan lines, not your messy apartment.

How to Lower Electricity Bill During the Summer

Just because the temperature is rising outside doesn’t mean your electric bill has to! Here are some tips that we have scoured the internet for to help you save a little extra cash during these hot summer months—

  • Unplugging an appliance because certain appliances use energy even if they are turned off.
  • Consult with roommates or coworkers before unplugging a shared appliance.
  • Close blinds, storm windows, or shades during the day.
  • Most central air conditioners will also have internal fans to help circulate the air in your house while reducing your need to use the air conditioner. Turn the fan on “auto.”
  • Using fans at night will help a natural breeze cool down your house; this will only work if you live in an area that drops in temperature at night.
  • Turn a fan directly towards yourself or guests if the temperature is very hot.

We hope these tips keep your energy bill down while you’re trying to stay cool this summer!
