9 Rookie Apartment-Living Mistakes

If you’re new to apartment living (or pretty much anything else in life), you’re going to make mistakes. Some will be big, some will be small. Some will leave big stains and/or smells, some will be easily vacuumed away (see image to right). Some will be inevitable, and some will be avoidable.

It’s the avoidable we address today.

Whether it’s failing to buy a toilet plunger or toolkit, or thinking it’s a good idea to sleep every night on a futon (it’s not, we have the lumbar damage to prove it), HuffPo recently put together a slideshow of nine totally avoidable I-wish-I’d-known-then-what-I-know-now first-time apartment living mistakes.

You’re welcome.

If you have questions about any of these mistakes and the best way(s) to avoid them, your Tandem Properties management team would be happy to answer them
