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):Read More »
With a huge crowd of people descending upon Minneapolis for the Super Bowl this year, I’ve decided to be a good neighbor and let you know where the best places are to fill your stomach while you’re here. And just because you didn’t ask for my opinion, doesn’t mean I’m not going to give it. The best part? You don’t have to be here for the Super Bowl to enjoy them…they’re great year round! Read More »
I’ve been living in Minneapolis for a year now, and that time has been filled with exploring new places and things to do. There is always something fresh to find, and I’m still nowhere close to being done!Read More »
There are very obvious tips that everyone gives you when you’re looking to move, like “check out the neighborhood” or “make sure it fits into your budget”. But there are certain things that you just don’t think about until after you’ve moved in. So I’m here to share things I’ve learned from moving, so you can learn from my mistakes.
Does your tiny bathroom have halogen lights that emit the heat of the sun?
This is very important, because if so, you will melt if you try to blow dry your hair in your bathroom. Or your makeup will start melting before you even get to work.
Are you a very tall human?
In the rental business, a “very tall human” is defined as any person of a height greater than five foot three inches. Tony and I are “very tall humans”. This means the shower comes up to our chest. So at least the bottom half of me is clean?
How big is the elevator?
This is important if you’re living any higher than the second floor. You won’t want to carry your furniture up the stairs, so it will need to go in the elevator. Things such as “will this sectional couch fit in the elevator” are very important things to consider before you try to shove said sectional couch into said elevator.
What kind of noises will you hear at night?
So hard to figure out. This is why I think that rental companies should allow people to stay at the apartment for a night. They would make money off it and potential renters would feel more comfortable knowing they have somewhat of an idea of what they’ll be hearing at night. Because kitties meowing is okay (and adorable). Because babies crying is not okay (and annoying AF).
