That's my old apartment!! The photo in the article above was an apartment I found 2 hours after stepping off a plane from Singapore to Brussels. I'll admit, I did have help with a (fairly useless) relocation agent, but i knew the moment i stepped into that place that I'd love it. of course, I had to see another 20 places before I came back to this one. Oh the stories that apartment could tell!

Other photos from the apartment (my very bad photos) are here - http://www.flickr.com/photos/yabby/sets/72157594480988653/with/165933837/

How Do You Search for Apartments?

Great post. A few things I've learned over the years ...

1) A cleaner for the thorough cleaning means that I get to enjoy my weekends.
2) If you have class/perspex in your shower, squidgee it away and wipe down the taps after your shower to stop caulk or grime buildup.
3) Before bed, put away shoes, clean 'stuff' off surfaces, pack the dishwasher etc - waking up to an ordered house makes it easier for me to get ready and get out the door in the morning.
4) Save money every month, even if it's just $5, and do it from when you earn your first paycheck.
