Moving Tips You Probably Didn’t Consider

Tony and I recently moved from Minneapolis to Woodbury, and while we’ve moved together previously, I always forget how…fun…it is until you’re trying to shove blanket #12 into a box filled with a Keurig, potting soil, and Windex. I wanted to share some key tips I learned along the way in hopes I can help you during your next move (and as a reminder to myself for next time):

Being Part of the Great Resignation…Twice

Towards the end of 2021, I decided it was time to quit my job. I wasn’t progressing in my career, wasn’t doing what I was most passionate about, and just felt ready to move on. I didn’t have a plan, I just knew I wanted to get out of there and move onto something that was more relevant to me.

I started a new position at an agency in December 2021, and while it seemed like the perfect match for me for the first few weeks, unfortunately it didn’t end up being the right fit. I really enjoyed the work I was doing and the clients I was working with, but there were a few cultural issues I experienced. I was becoming super anxious and dreaded waking up each morning to log into my computer. I felt like I failed since I was thinking of leaving so soon after starting, but after writing out the issues I was having and talking things through with my family, I realized it would be better for me to leave now than keep dragging it on. So a short 4 months after I started at this new company, I was already out.

How I Styled My Apartment Living Room, Including My Tips & Tricks

While Tony and I have been living in our Northeast Minneapolis apartment for almost 3 years, I’m just starting to be happy with how it’s decorated. We have a few pieces of hand-me-down high quality furniture, but didn’t want to collect too much since we still plan on moving every few years. This meant we bought a lot of low quality and cheap pieces from Ikea, Target, and Wayfair, and since I started working from home in March 2020, I realized I wanted to be surrounded by a space I really enjoy. I started making a plan for slowly replacing furniture and adding home decor items, specifically focusing on our living room. And while I’m no home decor expert, I wanted to share the current state of my apartment living room along with the tips and tricks I’ve learned while making these changes!
