B Patient: Housewarming touches

When you move into a new place you're distracted by all the glitz and glamour of decorating that you forget that you have to first buy important stuff such as foil, paper towels, a kitchen trash can and a can opener. These are things that are rarely blogged about because they aren't fun purchases. I'm finally getting passed the necessities and working on the small details of my apartment. 

When attending a housewarming or just sending a nice gift to a friend with a new place you have to respect that they will be spending majority of the time creating mood boards and working on big details of decorating their space. That's why you should respect their decor and not gift items that would demand attention or space in their new home but be useful and share a story through a detail. Small items such as coasters or a mini vase are small enough for them to stow away while a home fragrance can be hidden away while still being useful.

Also, while I'm in cleaning and decorating mode I have begun purging my closet. I have already listed a few items on Poshmark (including a new pair of Warby Parkers). Keep this bookmarked if you don't see anything now, there is plenty to uploaded and sold.

It never occurred to me to send a congratulation note/message for a new home housewarming. About to move into a new house they had purchased, one of these would be a great candidate for a message to my friends. Great job on this hub. To get more info please visit
