4 Reasons To Start Saving Money For When You're Moving Out

Many adults and older siblings/friends always state how important it is to save up money for when the day comes and you're moving to your own little home. I sure heard it a lot during my teenage years but 9 out of 10 people didn't state why. So here is 4 reasons why it's important from my point of view!



Furniture.
I rented my first apartment by my boss and it came with a bed, couch and such. But moving to where I live now (that stands in my own name) I had none of that. I had to buy furniture for the living room and I needed a bed, among other things of course but those two are like the most used ones you know? And it is expansive as shit haha. I remember going shopping once I knew I was getting this apartment and that shopping round I bought a couch group, a bed and a glass cabinet. This cost me 25,000+ kr. And that's a good price for what I got.

Food etc.
If you're moving for the first time you will have to buy everything. Food, breakfast, basic food products, spices, laundry/cleaning/hygiene stuff...And that first grocery shopping round, even if you wait with buying a few things, cost you money. And reality is you need that stuff to survive and keep up the housework.

Bills.
If you get internet, tv etc then most of them is going to want their money. Insurance for your home is a must in Sweden (don't know about other countries) and it's the same thing there. They don't have to wait for payment until the date next month when they usually wants it so they don't. Look up what bills etc is normal in your area. Do they want more than one rent the first time? What internet companies and what do they want...Everything you can think of and then remember that amount of money so you know you have it.

Bills #2.
Since we are on this subject remember to look up what goes into your rent that you pay. Does it include water? Does it include heat? If not then those two will come on separate ones and it cost a whole lot more than you think. Also if you pay heat separate and you live where the weather is like in Sweden with cold Winters, the bills go up when the temperature outside goes down! Same thing with electricity, it cost more than you think. If you know someone who lives/lived in a building that you are interested in, ask them to get the brutal and honest truth.


Most of these things are pretty obvious but from my experience and hearing others, you don't actually know how much everything cost. Or how big of a difference it can be between rents depending on where you live in a town. It's better to have a clear picture of everything so you don't make a mistake taking on a home you can't afford. You can never know too much or be too prepared!


What would you say is a good reason to start saving?

4 TV Shows That I Miss

You don't have to be a hardcore fangirl to have a list of TV Shows that you miss. I don't know how many shows I've followed from the start to the very end because they are so many (not even counting the anime and cartoons hehe) but here are 4 shows that I truly miss.




Buffy The Vampire Slayer
I was obsessed with this show. I am still obsessed with this show. I will always be obsessed with this show. Totally singing along with the Once More, With Feeling soundtrack writing this post. I stumbled upon this show...shit it was in my early teens so a looong time ago. Now I've always attached to shows like life depends upon it ever since I started watching cartoons and anime but this was one of the first "live action" show I truly got hooked on.




True Blood
This is with all hands down the best fucking vampire show EVER. Well I think it is hehe. I remember when I started watching this because it was in the middle of hiatus of S2 and S3 and oh my fucking god did it hit me hard. I was heartbroken when I had to wait 2 months for a new episode so imagine my heartbreak when it actually ended. I love the bloody, the adult side of it. It's not toned down thanks for being a HBO show and that is what every vampire show needs to be tip top if you ask me.




Angel
I know it's a spin-off from Buffy but it's still it's own show, right? I'm giving it it's own little space anyhow. After re-watching Angel maybe 2-3 times I actually started enjoying it even more than Buffy. Yes that's right. Well they both have their own things and characters...No I love them both on the same level. But I've always loved Angel as a character and this show you really get to know the true Angel (such an asshole tbh hahaha) and it's the same with characters with Cordelia, they were given space to grow.




Firefly
I'm picking up a theme with this post...I am indeed a huge fan of Joss Whedon. Ever since Buffy I've been hooked on his work, especially his TV shows. I am one of those fans that still wish all the pain in the world on Fox for cancelling Firefly. Assholes. At least we got a movie right? I'm not that big on out in the space woah stuff but this one stuck to me like superglue. The story line, the cast (Nathan Fillion I mean hellooo) and just everything. Yes. YES.



What TV Shows do you miss?
Have you watched any of the ones above?

10 Quick Random Facts About Me!

My blog has slowly faded away from the lifestyle part. Meaning more personal posts about my daily life, mainly because like most it's Get Up -> Go To Work -> Repeat the majority of the year. I want to change that and I am going to make this blog more personal again! But for now, here is 10 quick facts about me!
  1. I'm kind of obsessed with Pop! Figures and there for have small rules when it comes to them.
  2. If I could only game one game for the rest of my life it would be The Last of Us.
  3. I haven't had my real hair color beside one or two short times for over 10 years.
  4. I have a permanent bump on my forehead because I have indeed been clumsy since I was a kid.
  5. Since we're on that note, I am the girl who walks into glass doors and get stuck in slide doors. 
  6. My absolute favorite movie is The Last Unicorn and has been since I was about 6 years old.
  7. I always try to see a bright side of things (and good at it if I may say so myself) no matter what.
  8. I'm struck hard by the winter blues each year. But there's no good moments without the bad, right?
  9. I suffer from Trypoohobia so much that even writing that out gave me a panic attack.
  10. I like both the girls and the boys. Meaning in a none pedophile kind of way of course. I'm bisexual.

Suicide Squad Collection by Black Milk

Can we just talk about Black Milks Suicide Squad collection, please?! We don't even have to talk, we can just sit here at drool over all these lovely pretties below! My first reaction seeing this was basically "TAKE ME MONEY! I WILL FEED OFF AIR!" haha! Hopefully Ebay will get copies of at least some of these items (I mean they do have a similar jacket cosplay style already hehe) but I need everything but...You know how I am when it comes to spending too much money on one clothing item. I might have to break that rule...

If I would buy one item from this collection I would go for the Jokes On You Wood Chucks because hot damn, mama likes! All my undying love for Harley Quinn (we all know how I obsess over this character) but those shorts...I fucking need 'em. Now. I've seen Harley items I've fallen for more at other shops.
What's your favorite among these lovelies?
And also, if I find copies etc over on Ebay would you kitties like me to give a shout out?
