Moving In Together

{source}

I haven’t made an official post about this… but Justin and I are moving in together!  He has until the end of February to move everything and starting March, we’ll be sharing the mortgage payments.

YAY!

This is a big step.  My 876 square feet is feeling a lot squishier than before.  Once my parents and friends found out, I got more than a few “how are you two going to fit?” questions.  The bedroom, garage, and living room look like a hot mess.  The kitchen and office, however, are nice and neat after some intense organization!  We’re getting there…slowly but surely.

Now that we have to merge belongings, we have a lot of doubled items.  I’m going through every inch of space (and not to mention, junk drawer) to see what I can sell/donate/throw away.

And it’s painful.  I know it’ll be worth it in the end… I know that things have to get messy before it gets better.  But the process of moving in/out really puts things into perspective.  HOW in the world did I amass such a HUGE pile of STUFF?!    I don’t want to think about how much money I spent and ultimately wasted. Most of the time I feel like I’m a pretty good shopper.  I’m not a hoarder.  But the giant pile of trashbags stuffed in my car’s trunk tells me otherwise.  Sigh.

It’s so SOBERING.  No shopping for me for a while.  I’m so happy that we’re making such big changes in our lives…. but OMG.  I’m stressed out about the amount of stuff to go through!!
