15 Funny Truths 🀣about Apartment Living πŸ›‹Anyone Can Relate to πŸ”„ ...

There are some truths about apartment living that I think you should know about. My family of four (plus a goofy golden retriever) lugged our remaining possessions into the second floor, two-bedroom, 950 square foot apartment. We had sold our home, most of our furniture (including beds and couches), and all our dΓ©cor. Why? Eighteen months ago, we embarked on our dream project – to find some land, build a small ultra-modern home, put in a pool, and live with less material things. We were opting for the great outdoors and seeking some peace and quiet, none of which we can be found living in a huge neighborhood. They can’t be found in apartment living either.

We expected to be in this apartment for four months, perhaps six at most. Six rolled into seven. Then it became eight. Finally, nine. Now, we are moving into our tenth month living on top of each other in this apartment that has only a kitchen table, small loveseat, and mattresses on the floor.

During this not-so-epic journey, I am coping by compiling β€œApartment Living Truths.” Maybe I’ll reach 100 by the time we move out. So many friends and social media followers have commented about how funny they are, so I thought I’d share my favorites. Why don’t you judge for yourself, and perhaps add some of your own at the end! Here are my truths about apartment living.
