Gaining Mobility

One thing important to me right now is mobility. I am graduating pretty soon, and if an opportunity arises in a different state, or even a different country, can I attend to it easily?

I recently moved to a larger apartment right across the hall from my old one, and the simple move took much longer than expected. Since then I have got rid of some “junk” and started to unload some more bulky items like my monitors (I’m selling them on Ebay). My plan is to fit all of my posessions in two suitcases.

A drawback to this is a rather boringly decorated room:

Not winning any “best-decorated” reviews eh? After I send my guitars and piano back home, the only bulky thing I will own are my speakers. I am a high-quality-sound-fanatic and can’t yet part with my THX certified Klipsch speakers, no matter how many neighbors they annoy!

Other than that, I can pack up my clothes and Tablet PC and leave town whenever I want.

    Good luck with graduating and moving! As a recent graduate myself, I found out a nice little thing about moving and taxes – it’s all tax deductible, even if you don’t itemize. So keep track of the cost of carrying your two suitcases to wherever you go.

    Thanks for the tip Michelle, I love tax deductions!

    One cool thing: Under a tax deduction law to bolster technology spending by tech-companies, the Bush Administration allowed in the past two years computer equipment to be nearly 100% tax deductible…but only to companies that are run 50%+ on computers (mine is run 100% from computer). This means my Tablet PC and other tech-related goodies were all big time tax deductions. I will be sure to add moving costs to that

    I had no idea about the tax deductions! I think I have some work to do launching my bizz.

    Also two suitcased? I couldn’t imagine that. Was it just because you were looking for a job?

    I’m looking to “downsize” some stuff. But I have much further to go…
