Moving to work at the Army Aviation Logistics School in Virginia meant we had to look for apartments near Fort Eustis because neither my wife nor myself wanted to live on the base. There is nothing wrong with living on a base, mind you, as many of us did at the beginning of our military careers. I’ve known people who were in for twenty years who loved living on the base. It’s a nice, secure living situation that suits a lot of people just fine. But at the same time you have a lot of rules to follow that you don’t have in the outside world.
So we decided to get an apartment nearby so we could have that freedom. We just needed to find a nice complex that was affordable and close to the base so the commute wouldn’t take too long. Continue reading
When I looked at potential floor plans for the Seaside Residences near Siglap, I knew that I wanted to move there as soon as possible. It is just me, but I still wanted a two bedroom condo because I knew I would have frequent overnight guests with how nice it is here. My parents live nearly an hour away, and I have three sisters who would also visit on a regular basis, so I wanted to have a room available for them. What I like best is that whichever condo I do end up getting, it will have a spectacular view.
I plan on spending my mornings on the balcony, just enjoying them before I get ready for my day. Continue reading
I knew that we had to find a place to live quickly. Our house was one of the ones that was severely damaged by a local fire, and we were told that we would not be able to move back in. Thankfully, we did not own it, and we did have renter’s insurance for all of our possessions. That did not do a lot for us without a place to live though. I started looking at Stone Oak Apts since we definitely wanted to stay in the same area. I had seen a really nice complex, and that is the one that I wanted to look at first.
I had seen the outside of it nearly every day on my way to work, but I still did not know anything about it. Continue reading
I had no idea I was going to find the perfect apartment for my family when I began looking at apartments in Antioch TN about two months ago. We had been living in a two bedroom unit with one bathroom, and that was just too hard when there was four of us. My daughters had to share a bedroom that was already small, and it was hard for four people to coordinate using one bathroom. I knew that we had to do something, so I went online to see if I could find something better for us.
I looked at a few different apartment complexes before finding the one that we now call home. Continue reading
I recently accepted yet another two year employment contract to do some IT work in Massachusetts, which led me to look online for luxury apartments for rent in Revere MA. My friends keep hassling me about taking these short term employment contracts, saying it’s not good for my work history and that I need to settle down and set up with a family and kids and the whole nine yards. My parents, especially my poor mother, agree with them. But what I love about this type of work is that I’m very good at it and can command an out-sized salary as well as luxury accommodations if I play my cards right.
Which brings we to Massachusetts and my current living arrangements. Continue reading
Ohio deregulated their natural gas rules and no one is happier about the new gas rates than I am. Well, maybe many other businesses and consumers are as well. By deregulating the process, it allowed competition to enter the arena and competition almost always means lower prices and better service for consumers. Our company requires natural gas to fuel several important processes, so a lower price has many obvious benefits for our bottom line. Also the lower prices mean we can pass on savings to our customers. Everyone benefits.
The best thing about going online to see what prices you can get for natural gas stocks is that you can see who is selling and for what price, and you can see it all in one place. You don’t have to work the phones trying to find sellers and worry about missing a great price because it took too long to get your order in. Continue reading
The first time I saw the Stone Oak apartments that I now live in, I thought that I would never be able to afford to live here. I make a nice income, but this place looks like it caters only to people who make a whole lot more money than I do every month. I decided that I had nothing to lose by looking though, so I went online to find the website for the Regency at Lookout Canyon apartments. Even before I looked at the prices, I looked at the pictures.
I knew that if I looked at the prices first, I would not want to see more, knowing I would not be able to afford to live in a place like that. I really liked everything that I saw though with the pictures, so I decided to go ahead and look. Continue reading
My boyfriend and I recently received some excellent news which, among other things, led me to do an online search for txu electric plans. He’s had a low level job for the last several years, a job which translates into living in a small, cramped apartment in a poor part of town. Recently, however, he received the best news anyone could hope for, namely he’s getting a really big job promotion. Along with the new title and company car comes a substantial increase in his salary. He will be making so much that we will finally be able to leave this stodgy apartment behind and actually live in a house.
Even before we’re prepared to put our names on the property deed, I’ve been looking online to get everything set up. One of the biggest issues is making sure we have an effective energy plan. Living down here where the summers can be like living in a blast furnace, and you’ve got to make sure you have that specific issue nailed down. Living through a blazing summer with inadequate electricity is not an option. Neither of us could live through it.
I was pretty amazed getting online and finding out how many energy plans are available to the consumer. You just put in your zip code and up pops all sorts of neat plans that can save you money, give you money back, and even have a more environmentally friendly plan if that is what you desire. Our main goal at this point is to watch our costs closely as we haven’t lived in our home before. We needed to make sure it was affordable and it definitely looks like we will easily make it as the plan we’re looking at will give us precise breakdowns in order to guarantee there are no surprises in our bills.
Curious about the apartments in Goodlettsville TN and the surrounding area, I took a look at some websites that would help me learn more about pricing and the types of places that are there. I found some places that interested me right away, so I began to make some calls. I wanted a new start in life, and I figured this would be a good city to start in. I had been there to visit once when I was a kid with my family and remember loving that trip. That is the reason that I made the choice to look there first. I figured that if I wanted to move at some later point, I could. But at that moment in time, I just wanted to a place where I could settle in quickly.
I had been living with someone for five years. He was not really a good person for me to be around. The relationship started off pretty well, and after just six months, we decided to remain exclusive and move in with one another. Soon after I moved in, he changed. Continue reading
My wife and I have kept ourselves on a tight budget to meet specific goals since we first met. When we were dating we made a plan and a promise to stick to it. Our accountant is a friend who also kind of informally joined our promise. He said he would cast the deciding vote for all our purchase decisions we ask him about since he does our taxes. We wanted out of our apartment building, so we looked at an apartment guide for Jacksonville FL to find a new place. We wanted a nice place that was not in a big building.
The place we were looking at was Pelican Pointe. They have duplex bungalow style apartments. They are just the right size for us, and the rent is less than what we were actually prepared to spend. That is a good thing as we can put the leftover money into our investment portfolio. The goal is to retire as young as possible and be able to keep a home base and travel in an RV. Continue reading
