You need to set the rules in stone early on so that you are both on the same page. In most couples, there is one person who is tidier than the other. Arguments can quickly start if you have not agreed on the level of clutter that is acceptable in your household. If you have moved into a small place, it can be particularly annoying having to duck and dive over clutter.

Don’t Double up

If you and your partner have been living on your own for a little while you will more than likely each have similar essentials you can each bring to the new place. Where possible you should avoid doubling up on items. No! You don’t need a spare fridge freezer!
