Apology for Lack of Posting

Sorry for the lack of posts, guys! I feel really bad. It’s seriously a goal of mine to blog every [week] day, and I’ve failed at that this week. I am moving tomorrow and have been making preparations for that.

But in the middle of this move I have learned A LOT about life and money and growing up. Basically–life takes a lot of money. But it doesn’t have to take all of it. Remember….

Wealth = What you earn – What you spend

There are several things I am going to blog about I’ve learned this week so be on the look out!

I also figured my net worth today for the first time. (Crazy, huh?) I’ll blog on that too. It’s quite interesting. I’m looking forward to doing it every 2 weeks and seeing it grow. Does any of you calculate your net worth at all? I’d like to hear how you do it and how it motivates you.

Thanks for being awesome, everyone! Hope you have a great weekend. And remember what this Easter weekend is all about. 🙂

I’m MOVING!

After working full-time for 4 months and being on a waiting list with a certain apartment complex for 3 months, I am now officially moving. It will be the first time I “really” move out of my parents house. I went away for a couple of years after high school, but I told them to keep my room “my room” so I could come back. This time it’s more official since I have a job and am aiming to become completely on my own.

It’s bitter-sweet for sure, but I think it’s the right move for me right now. There are several things to take care of when moving out for the first time (or even moving at all!)

1. Get rid of junk
2. Take inventory of everything you own for insurance purposes
3. Organize papers and loose documents
4.  Update your budget to reflect new/different expenses, etc.
5.  If reasonable, get certain things moved into your own name instead of your parents. 😉
6.  Put things away in an organized and understandable fashion.
7. Compare costs of different things and cut unnecessary expenses.
8. Be confident you can make it on your own and make decisions that will lead to success!

Any other suggestions for me or for others? What are some good tasks to take on during a move?
