I can’t believe we move in just 11 days! I received a very long list of “must do’s” from the property management company. There weren’t any surprises on there as I was made aware of everything upon move in. I admit I was irritated by the fact that I have to have the carpet professionally cleaned because really…the carpet is awful! I have throw rugs over 75%+ of it because I don’t want the kids or I to walk on it–that’s how bad it is! Thankfully the carpet is only upstairs. It absolutely, positively needs to be replaced but that’s not my call so I will fulfill my obligation.
As I went about pricing carpet cleaning services I only became more irritated because it was going to cost me a couple of hundred bucks. That is until I found a groupon coupon! The upstairs is approximately 1000 square feet and the coupon is for carpet cleaning of 1000 square feet for $40! I read and reread the requirements from the management company and all it says is I must produce a receipt from a professional carpet cleaning company. So I chalk this up as a win and the carpet cleaning is set for 3/29. Score!
In other move news, we are almost completely packed. Spring Break was productive and we are all very excited. At this point I am looking forward to less space. I wonder how I will feel in a few months? Cramped? Confined? Or liberated? I’m not sure but for now I am enthusiastic if nothing else. I’ve sold a few more things and sent the money straight to debt which feels good considering this is going to be an expensive month with the move. I decided no garage sale is needed as I got rid of most garage sale type items via Craigslist. All of those transactions went so well! Everyone showed up when they said they would and payment was made in cash!
Rocking along here and feeling good. Could NOT have done this without this blog!!!!
