After years of wanting to move, my husband and I finally got enough money saved up to leave our hometown. Since we both work at home, we can easily work from anywhere in the united states, which made the move easier. We got rid of a bunch of our things, packed our belongings up on a big truck, and moved all the way down south. Of course, the moving costs were far more expensive than we anticipated. We decided to spend our first year in the smaller apartment so that we’re able to build our savings back up and get to know the area before investing in a house. We didn’t plan on keeping our apartment for more than a few months, but I think we could actually renew the lease, because this apartment is excellent! It came with brand new appliances, and a new HVAC system. Our apartment has central heating and cooling, and that’s completely new for us. Neither of us have ever had central air conditioning, since we grew up in a northern climate. Now that i am in the south, having air conditioning is totally crucial. Even after a couple of weeks, I can’t imagine ever residing without air conditioning again! Although our apartment is small, our electric bills are dramatically reduced. All we have to do is create a few adjustments on the thermostat, and air conditioning starts pouring out of our air vents within seconds. As an additional benefit, our apartment complex schedules routine HVAC maintenance for us, so we never have to bother with cleaning out the heating and cooling devices. My husband and I love our new area, but we love the central air conditioning even more!
