The BIG Move

So guys I have some very exciting news! I plan on packing my backs and hitting the road this December or early January. TO CALIFORNIA! How am I going to pick up and move that fast. Well here’s how its gonna go. I am going to start paying $800 dollars into rent every month (yes that is a lot and leaves me with little) BUT if I want to be gone by then it must happen. SAVING is key my friends. Start with a small fund like collecting all your change. Start labeling your money to go to certain things for example my change will be going into my gas tank! Keep motivated to move, my motivation comes from the countdown I have in my room. 149 DAYS! Another huge thing you must do is to STAY ON TOP OF THINGS. You must keep tract of your money and how much you personally need to save. I think if you are really anxious to move you MUST take at least 2 to 3 thousand, just so you have money to depend on before you start your job. ALSO, if you plan on moving into a money hungry state (like California) you must SAVE, SAVE, SAVE. I can’t stress that enough. Also getting the essentials you will need move is a must. Ask your self these questions.

  1. Will your car make the move?
  2. How much money do you have saved already?
  3. What do you need to buy for your house/apartment?
  4. Did you find a job there yet?
  5. Have you looked up housing?
  6. How will you move your things?

Once you ask your self those questions and you have an answer (you don’t need to know them right away but the sooner the better) you will need to start a timeline of how your move will go because trust me TIME FLIES and without a timeline of when things should be done you might fall off track and miss the moving date! (that’s the last thing I want lol) So keep your self motivated and make small movements everyday to get yourself closer to your move date! One last tip, setting your move date for an earlier date is A LOT better than having a later one that will leave you no bumper time to make error. For example my move date is December 8th although I might not get moved in until January 8th, I gave myself a month for error time (just incase).

Okay guys, BEST OF LUCK TO YOU ALL ON YOUR MOVES! I hope my tips and tricks helped. I will be keeping you guys updated! I would love to hear your guys plan on a move in the near future!
