Tips for Living in Your First Apartment in Blacksburg, VA

Joseph Coupal - Monday, October 05, 2015

When it comes to preparing for your first apartment, you have it totally under control. You know what you are doing, right?

When apartment hunting, start early and do your research. Apartments in Blacksburg, VA go quickly, it’s a college town, and building managers respond better to people who are well-informed.

When you get your first apartment, don’t pay your rent on time. Pay it early. Also don’t be surprised when you want to cry after handing over your first rent check. That’s normal.

Pinterest and Goodwill are your friends. There’s a lot you can do with a small space on the cheap. You just have to be willing to do research and to get in touch with your crafty side.

There is no argument that paying utilities is awful, but there are things you can do to cut costs. Get water-saving shower heads, unplug things that you aren’t using, rinse your dishes all at once rather than leaving the water running, make sure your windows are actually closed in the winter (especially in old buildings). The little things help.
