Just a quick update that I am continuing the 1K declutter series and picking up where December left off on. We got up to 367. I will be writing my January Declutter post this week as I have the week off of work, since it is February break. I am hoping to hit 700 this year. I don’t think that I will hit the 1K, but it is important now more than ever for us to downsized as we might be leaving our apartment in the coming months due to unreasonable tenants who hate children. Our child is not loud and goes to school and daycare during the week. His time at home is pretty much limited to Saturday as we spend every Sunday with my fiancé’s mom at her house. We have no clue what “noise” they consider unreasonable and “too loud” that our child makes. I bought EVA insulation to pad his room with, but beyond that, I have no clue out to reduce noise that doesn’t sound loud to us.
We also have close relatives who might need financial help as one of them ended up in the hospital and on bed rest for 6 months due to a heart attack at a very young age. Our apartment is rundown and we pay too much for it as is, but it is our little two bedroom. It’ll be tough transitioning into a 1 bed and sharing a house, but we know it would be temporary. We have applied for housing as well. My fiancé is out of work and we don’t have the income for another apartment. A relative has offered to pay last and security, but with only my income, we don’t hit the requirements. So, right now, we can’t even get another apartment if we wanted to. It has been a rough 2021. 2020 is looking better and better as this year goes on. I lost my aunt, my brother-in-law gets in the hospital for a heart attack, and we get a noise disturbance notice for our child playing, running, and jumping during normal hours. It’s already been a year.
