Coming Out the Other Side

We’ve moved- it’s official! And I love my new apartment- it’s so big and filled with sunlight! The kids are happy too and so is the hubby… it’s just the cats who are out of sorts, and expressing it as only cats do best! I’ll let you imagine the details.

We managed to move pretty frugally, even though it felt like we spent an arm and a leg. Between the help of our friends and family, not having to rent a truck, and refurbishing some old furniture for new purposes, I think we did pretty well. Not to mention the glories of Ikea’s ‘As-Is’ department! I’ll write more about the specifics of moving on a budget later.

We still don’t have internet, or a phone, so i don’t have a lot of time to write, but I did want to let you know that we are all alive and well… and moved!

Glad you made it! Sounds like there’s an IKEA story just waiting in the wings; can’t wait to hear it plus the refurbishing old furniture for new uses.

Congrats on the move! We moved 2 weeks ago, and out cat has taken it out on the poor couch that we JUST got. His “scent” is everywhere, if you know what I mean. If you come across any good links to help them adjust and to get the smell out of the furniture lol please please share it with us. I can’t see spending more money on another couch! How un-frugal would that be? :o)

Congrats on the move! I look forward to hearing how you did it on a budget. We are moving soon and could use some tips. 🙂

Can’t wait for the post on frugal moving! After a housefire, we’ve had to move twice in the past 2 months. I’m still working on refurnishing, and I’d love to hear about your experience.
