    Help Homemaking question?

    Advertisements
    Hey all,

    I need some advice from you pros! After I graduate in Dec. I will be moving to the town next to where DF is stationed (Jacksonville, NC to be exact!) I will only be there for a couple of months and will be staying in a month to month apartment. My question is how do I make a home out of my little hole in the wall with out spending a ton of money and only being able to bring stuff in 2 large suitcases, and be able to move everything back in a small 4 door car. So in case that was confusing heres an outline form!

    Moving to Jacksonville:
    Only bring with belongings that fit into 2 large rolling suitcases

    Moving back to Minnesota:
    All belongings must fit in car along with some of DF's stuff

    I've come up with some diffrent ideas but I wanted to know what y'all thought. Thanks for any help you can give and be sure to ask me questions if you need to know something more!
    Lots of Love,
    Jenn

    Maybe look on Craigslist.. esp the 'free' section.. & hit up some yard sales/thrift stores?

    flowers !!! all you need are a few very inexpensive vases ( can get these at goodwill for dirt cheap) water and fresh flowers.
    pictures: you can get frames also from goodwill for dirt cheap- so cheap that you can just donate them back when you get ready to move.
    knick knacks- very easy to bring along as long as you keep it to a min.
    and candles- these are easy to buy and use- and add alot of personality to any room.
