WHOSE PROPERTY GOES AS NEWLYWEDS?
Welcome to the phase of having double everything. From two beds, two couches, and two pieces of furniture and appliances of the same use. Which of them goes? Which ones should be let go of or put into use in your new home?
There are options on how to get out of this particular dilemma. They include:
- Renting out your apartments or spaces together with all the furniture and appliances.
- Selling all of them so you can get money off them. Or to get new furniture and appliances that are more suitable for your new home as newlyweds.
TO KEEP THEM OR TO LET GO OF THEM?
Since there are two sets of everything, it’s best to check which one best suits the theme you’re going for in your new home. Pick out which one is still in the best condition, and that you both like equally or to an extent. As newlyweds, you both have a say on this matter and it is not worth any loggerheads.
ALLOW YOUR BUDGET GUIDE YOU
If you already went with the option of selling everything off to purchase new ones. Then you will have to decide on how much you are willing to put into getting new furniture and appliances.
This is a long-term commitment that most newlyweds usually have to openly talk about to avoid arguments.
DON’T FORGET YOUR CHECKLIST
The creation and dutiful adherence to a budget and checklist make moving into a new home as newlyweds less stressful. Especially when starting and buying new household items. Having a checklist for what you need for every corner and room of your new home will do the magic for you.
Your checklist is meant to be ranked with needs and wants. This aids in saving time, money and prevents you from buying unnecessary items before the basic ones.
PACK IN YOUR ESSENTIALS
These essentials include items needed for the first few days in the new home as newlyweds. Moving in together doesn’t mean that you have to let go of your items that have sentimental values. These items can be clothes, books, pets, and other stuff you consider important.
You must also pack a box that contains all essentials that you need for your first night in your new home.
These items can be toiletries, a change of clothes, a toolbox, a first aid kit, and a flashlight should be included.
It is important to expect a long day packing, moving, unpacking, and organizing your new home on your moving day. You will need those essentials to be able to survive your first night and a couple more days.
