How to Prepare Yourself to Downsize for Your Move into an Apartment

Are you looking for ways to save money when you are renting an apartment?  Whether you live in our apartments for rent in Cayce, SC or you are looking for a way to afford an apartment of your own, you will want to know a few tricks on how to save money.  Many household items can actually be repurposed for storage or cleaning purposes.  This creativity will help you to spend less money by reusing items you already have.  There are a few common household items that you can reuse to save money when you are living at an apartment.

Food Containers

Food containers are the best things to keep around for reuse, because they can usually be easily washed over and over again.  You can continue using many food containers to store food in the pantry, fridge, or freezer.  Many people invest in these products just to eliminate waste and promote recycling.

Plastic Bottles

Instead of throwing away your plastic bottles, you should consider using them for crafts, storage, or planters.  Many people cut their plastic bottles across the middle and use the bottles for starting seeds for their garden.  They can also use these bottles to paint or make creative crafts with their children.

Milk Jugs

If you are lucky enough to have a balcony unit at our apartments, you can repurpose used milk jugs as planters.  Growing your own herbs is a great way to save money at the grocery store, and you can even plant the seeds directly in old milk jugs.

Dryer Sheets

Dryer sheets can be easily repurposed as dusters for your electronics.  After the dryer cycle is done, take the dryer sheet along your TV screens, computers, laptops, and devices to pick up the dust and keep everything clean.

Egg Cartons

It may seem strange to reuse your egg cartons, but these odd-shaped cartons are actually perfect for storing holiday ornaments safely.  Keep your egg cartons inside your holiday decorating boxes as a way to keep some of the sentimental and fragile tree decorations safe when they are packed away.

Old Towels

Instead of throwing away your old towels or fabrics, cut them up to use them as rags for dirty projects.  These make great rags to clean floors, wipe exterior surfaces, or clean up spills.  By using old towels, bedding, or even clothing, you save yourself from wasting these perfectly good rags.

Plastic Bags

Some of the best things to reuse are plastic bags that you get from the grocery store or from retail purchases.  These plastic bags make great pet waste bags, carry-out bags for friends and family, or trash bags.  By reusing plastic bags, you reduce the amount of plastic that ends up destroying nature.
