I'm going to be moving out to an apartment soon. I'll be living on my own for the first time. What are some tips and things I should do to get ready?

First few days will be really weird and somewhat scary but full of freedom.

Then everything will be normal.

It gets lonely on your own.

I don't know. I was never so lonely and miserable as when I had to stay with other people for a while after living alone for years. Maybe having to be around people who were always pissing me off made me feel more alone.

I am incredibly lazy and even I had one for 12 years. Having a cat is very easy and rewarding. It takes you 5 minutes a day.

plan meals before you buy groceries
start a spice garden if you want, it's easy and relaxing and cheaper than rebuying them in the long-term. really all you need is a spot next to a window

5 minutes of actual chores, hours of pets and headscratches

I moved out on my own for the first time too this past summer. If you've seen the place already (and can see it again before moving in) take measurements of the walls and floor so you have an idea of what you can do in terms of furniture. You don't have to rush to furnish the place either. Outside of the essentials, take your time and make it homey little by little.

I haven't really felt lonely since I moved out. Maybe it'll feel off for the first few days if you've never lived away from your family before, but it starts to feel normal very quickly. It's peaceful- you do everything you want to on your own schedule, and you control who's allowed in.

Definitely stock up on things you'll want to have before you actually need them (think plunger, bandaids, the like).

Just moved out recently too. It did wonders to my mental health. I'm alone most of the time, but I don't feel lonely, and I can visit family and friends exactly as much as I feel like, instead of seeing them all the time.

I spent a bit too much money on furniture, when I could've been just as happy with cheaper used furniture. Can also buy kitchenware over time on sale, instead of everything right away. I agree with >>9576 Take your time, every little piece you add makes your home feel more and more homey. For me a cheap Ikea plant was what I needed to get that warm homey feeling.

I can definitely recommend getting a plunger early on too (I didn't…).

Yeah, for me living alone isn't lonely. What's lonely is having no control over when and how you interact with people, be it online or in person. I think it's ok to get nice furniture if you're willing to spend on it. It's important to surround yourself with things you like. I feel like people especially overlook comfort in beds and chairs, considering the amount of life they intend to live in them.

Buy a 13 in one cooker, air frying, slow cooker, and etc all in once, or something of the ilk. They can be pretty handy
