Your big moment is about to arrive. You are about to move. There is no doubt that this is one of the most exciting, and nerve-wracking, events you have ever experienced.

This guide will help you to make sure that your move as a student is as easy as possible, allowing you to enjoy your new life in a new place.

1. First, where are you going?

If you are starting to study in a new city, for example in Melbourne, which neighbourhood do you want to move to? If you do not know the area properly, ask friends about the location. Are there many students living around there? What is there to do nearby? How expensive is the area?

2. How much does it cost?

Money is at the forefront of everyone's minds when making big decisions such as moving. It is no secret that housing prices are rising and that's without even mentioning the cost of electricity, water, food, gas, internet, and any other living costs.

But even here, contrary to expectations, there is a lot of money that can be saved. You can rent an apartment in a neighbourhood that is less central location. Generally, in such neighbourhoods, the rent is lower. Living in an apartment together with flatmates, can also significantly reduce costs. In addition, where you live affects where you shop; This, in turn, affects how much you are spending. Living somewhere with access to cheaper options for things such as food and clothing can significantly lower your cost of living.

3. Storage

One of the best things you can do is buy storage boxes, reducing the amount of storage space you require from a home. A lot of space can be created using storage boxes. This will open up cheaper options for when you look into places to rent.

Such boxes can be purchased at any housewares or DIY store. You will be amazed how much space can be produced using simple solutions and by how cheap these solutions can be.

4. Laundry

If you do not have a washing machine, it is important to check where the nearest laundromat is. Don't let your dirty laundry pile up. Buy a laundry basket and make sure that you put things into it as soon as you take them off. If you do not have a dryer, you can dry your clothes with a clothesline.

5. Cleanliness

For you, for your partners and your friends, please, keep the place clean. To live in a healthy environment, cleanliness and proper hygiene are vital. If you have a flatmate who is unclean, communicate this with them; For the sake of both the cleanliness of the home and your friendship. Quiet resentment is never healthy.
