What Should you Prepare: Moving out From Home

Moving out of your family home where you grew up can be a really challenging experience.

You will have mixed emotions honestly. Fear, excitement, fulfillment, over thinking what ifs. You will feel everything.

If you’re a fresh graduate or someone who wants to try living alone for the first time, It’s an opportunity to gain new experience and practice being independent.

From someone who moved out 2 years ago and is somehow breathing peacefully now, here are some tips on what you should prepare when you move out:

Set a budget you can afford

What you should consider in the first place is your income.  

You need this to determine how much you can afford to spend on rent, bills, grocery, transportation, and other expenses. Remember that it is more expensive to live alone compared to sharing a space with your friend.

Review your options

Search, search and search.

Identify the neighborhood that you think you can really afford. Consider the location’s safety, proximity to public transportation, its amenities, and the distance from your workplace/school.

If you found the perfect place convenient for your everyday activity, try searching the keyword “apartments for rent Taguig (for example).” Look for apartments, studios, or shared spaces that meet your needs and book a visit to see them in person. Don’t be afraid to negotiate rent or ask questions about the lease agreement.


Moving out provides a great opportunity to organize and downsize your belongings. Sort through your possessions and decide what you want to keep, donate, or sell. Consider the size and layout of your new home and choose items that will fit comfortably. Pack and label boxes to make unpacking easier and less stressful.

Prepare for the moving day

Moving out be really stressful, but proper preparation can help make it a satisfying experience. Consider hiring professional movers. Ask for additional helpers if you have a budget, they really help a lot.

If you’re on a tight budget, ask your friends or family to help you on the day that you’ll move out.

Make sure you have boxes, tape, and bubble wrap. Label if they are fragile so the carrier will take good care of it as much as possible. Lastly, don’t forget to pack essentials like toiletries, this what first time movers usually forget.

With these tips in mind, remember to take it easy and always think critically before making a decision.
