*We had been looking up apartment complexes for a long time, however I had not called any of them because I was nervous about pet deposits (we have two dogs, a morkie and a boxer).
*I had about five apartment complexes online that I was looking between and I decided that I would call one of them out of the blue that looked fairly nice and their rent was not too high.
*The first thing that I asked them was about the pet deposit. How much was it? They told me $300.00. I was a little shocked and then I asked if State employees got any discounts. They said they were looking for a security officer and I quickly responded with, "Let me call my husband and I will be right back with you."
*I called Brian and asked if he would want to do that or not? He told me to schedule an appointment and we would go there after he got off work.
*I called the apartment complex back and scheduled the appointment. We went there, LOVED IT and then put a down payment down.
*Now, HERE is the kicker......
*The down payment was $200 less than what it should have been because they are running a special. We also only have to pay one pet deposit instead of TWO and we are getting our rent HALF off!!!!
I almost can not believe it myself. We are going to be paying LESS than what we are paying now and it will be our OWN place. Brian and I both were beyond excited and I just kept asking myself, "What is the catch?"
Now comes the fun part. We are moving this next weekend and I am also going on a Prayerscape Retreat. So that means, Brian gets to move by himself (and his dad), but still without me there. That makes me a little beyond nervous!
Here is a picture of the apartment that we chose. We are upstairs, so we will have to get used to that.
So along with moving, comes CLEANING. I love to clean, but not pack at the same time. I just started using this new cleaning items called Method and LOVE IT!! It is a naturally-derived, biodegradable product that is safe for humans and animals.
Last, but not least, I will have a review and giveaway for Allied Medal Displays in the next week. I am waiting until after I move, so that I will have things organized. I am so excited to do this review and giveaway, so stay tuned for it!
