The big move is almost here! No doubt you have been counting down the days until you take that big step into total freedom. Excited? Nervous? Scared? Totally unprepared? Don’t worry, Mansons have got you covered.
First things first, we want to make sure your move goes as smoothly as possible-leaving more room for the fun stuff that we know you are eagerly anticipating! So, here are three top tips to help you get a plan into action and the ball rolling…
1. Pack to perfection
If you have been putting off packing your whole life into boxes, we really don’t blame you. We say start packing up gradually instead of all in one day! That way you’ll remember over time the extras you may have forgotten about. Clear the clutter ready for your new adventure. Old college notes, your favourite teddy? Leave it behind because you really won’t know how much space you have to work with until you get there. You can always bring extras at a later date.
2. Get clued up
It’s totally normal to feel nervous about moving to a brand-new area. Turn this into a positive and make it your mission to find out about where you’ll be living. What’s on, what’s around and where you can go for essentials when you get there. Make sure you follow your University and alike places across all social media platforms too!
3. Work out your budget
Before you start splashing out at Freshers, make sure you have a budget plan in writing so you don’t leave yourself short! Try not to fall into bad habits-by knowing how much money you have weekly etc. for food and essentials it means you’re less likely to have to make that phone call for an emergency fund.
