Choose the right kind of temporary accommodation
Only take the essentials
If you’re staying in temporary accommodation, you’re likely to have limited space compared to your own home, so pack accordingly. Take a few changes of clothes, your toiletries, your phone and laptop, and anything else that you can’t live without. Don’t worry about your music collection, your full wardrobe, or your games consoles. A minimalist existence for a month or two is not going to kill you.
Taking only what you need can often show you just how much stuff you’ve accumulated over the years that you will likely never use any time soon (if ever). Why not take the opportunity to get rid of some of those items? Whether you’re moving home, travelling for university, or having your current home renovated, there’s never been a better time to make space in your life.
