I DID IT!! I signed the lease on Friday last week!
The Primary Frustration:
I messaged the retailer Wednesday about the breakdown on how he was expecting the whole deposit to be paid, but by the time I got there, Thursday, I was told the lease wouldn’t be ready to sign until Monday.
After some very vocal frustrated grunts (from my mom who was with me, not actually me), they were able to send for it within the next hour. It’s a 2 and half hour drive from where I currently live. Scheduling is pretty tight, so going back on Monday after already making the trip would have been a huge blow!!
I was even able to get to see the place one last time before moving in for my dad who came with.
The Secondary Frustration:
It was decided to go ahead and make the deposit for water, electricity and wifi while we were all there. Driving around, although still taxing, was not nearly as aggravating as calling people over the phone.
There a couple really cute, and super convenient consignment shops – 1 in Fort Myers & the BIGGER 1 in Cape Coral – called The Talk of the Town Consignment. The prices are beyond affordable for clothing and reasonable for some of the vintage-esque furniture finds.
Although I can’t wait to furnish the cute little place myself, I gotta keep saving as I go. I also have to watch my spending since there are several essentials I need to get together myself during my first week down there before I start work (including groceries).
The move date is this Friday, so this weekend I’ll finally be able to show some actual good, work-in-progress, photos!
Wish Me Luck On My Move
