About a month ago, Joel and I moved out of our NYC Upper East Side doorman building apartment and into my parent's basement. Living in the city was amazing, but extremely difficult on the saving money front. With the Wedding in a little over a year, saving money has really become our biggest priority. And, the basement isn't half bad. It has twice as much space as our 1 bedroom converted into 2 bedroom, shared with a roommate apartment, we have our own bathroom, our own bar area with a microwave and refrigerator, and our own entrance. And it really is quite nice.
After moving all of our stuff in and adding some personal touches it really is coming along. And as my Mom keeps reminding me, we are only there temporarily.
