Cost of furnishing...

Direct Line offer a range of Life Insurance policies in the UK

Ever wondered what it costs to furnish an apartment?

Well, I've been keeping track. The next couple days I will actually make the move into my new place, and once I get settled I'll post the totals of what I spent to move in and we can tally it all up.

On a side note, it's important to me to be able to keep saving money. I set up an automatic withdrawal to send $25 each week to my eMM account. It's not much, but it's something and hopefully I can continue to add to the account and keep it going so that down the road I can have the down payment for a house or similar long term investment.

I'll work on the tally while I move, post that and also a snapshot of the current financial picture sometime soon...

In college some of my friends have furnished their temporary apartments for free or very little. At the end of every long semester, there are tons of couches, futons, cabinets etc being given away for free or for a very insignificant sum of money.

If you offer to move the couch/bed/whatever out of an someone's apartment for them, they might just give it to you!

Of course these freely furnished apartments were never really swanky, but if you are only temporarily living somewhere and in need of cheap furniture, it is always an option to rummage!
