I agree with having two emails accounts, gmail has a good spam filter and you want your bill info going to the email you check everyday. I also agree with downsizing your contacts, especially on your phone.

But DON'T delete your linkedin accout. It's 2012, every professional should have a LinkedIn profile. Also unless you have total job security (no one does) you may be job hunting one day and you don't want to have to start from scratch.

Also you should try to consolidate your passwords, one you would never share with anyone for your main email, one for all things money that you can share with a spouse(bank accounts, credit cards, 401k, Mint, etc). and one for everything else.

Also create a google doc with all your usernames and login info...frequent flyer numbers, etc. Very helpfull for things you only log into once or twice a year.

I once moved entirely by public transit. It took two or three trips a day for a week!

Living in New York, where people are constantly moving, I can not tell you how many times a day I walk past ikea beds, dressers, tables, chairs, etc. that people are discarding.

I'd much rather have something of higher quality (pottery barn, crate and barrel, etc.) from craigslist than the cheak ikea version.

Is this apartment on the upper east side, if so I'm pretty sure I looked at it (or at least one in the same building). Looks great!

I ran cross country at my midwestern college and a good tip is this: When running dress as though it is 20 degrees warmer than it is. So if it's 30, dress as though you are going for a walk in 50 degree weather.

But remember you won't stick with anything that makes you miserable, which means you might take an extra day off when the weather is especially horrid...hot or cold.

craigslist! I'm in NYC and find people would rather sell their stuff than move it to another apartment. Oftentimes it's quality things they've only had for a year or so... that is how I scored a $900 Williams Sonoma nightstand for $100.
