When you were hunting for an apartment, you probably zoned in on just a few must haves - an affordable price in a convenient location that allows pets. You’re not hard to please, right?

Depending on your specific community, there could be a whole world of cool amenities and features right outside your front door that you're missing out on. And guess what? You're paying for these amenities every month!

Take my advice: don't fall into the trap of not taking advantage of what’s available to you. I'll admit that I’m totally guilty of this myself. I lived in a community in Duluth, GA that had not one but two swimming pools, a workout facility, tennis court, soccer field and a car wash all on-site. Did I ever partake in these convenient amenities? I used the pool and the car wash once over a four year period.

If you like the convenience of having everything you need at your fingertips, then an apartment with lots of amenities is right up your alley. Not only will you be able to have a good time without going far, but partaking in what your community offers is the best opportunity to meet your neighbors. So get out there, mix and mingle!

The bedroom. It’s where all the magic happens. But all too often, this private space ends up being everything but the peaceful oasis it was meant to be. Do you walk into your bedroom and immediately feel overwhelmed or frustrated because it's in such disarray? Well, your bedroom is supposed to make you feel the exact opposite. At peace. Calm. Fulfilled.

With TVs, laptops, tablets and phones, most of us are connected 24/7, even in bed. But it’s time to block out all the noise and focus on you and that special someone, even beyond Valentine’s Day. These appealing, magazine-worthy apartment bedrooms might inspire you to focus a bit more on where you get your beauty rest.

A smaller space will mean less to clean and maintain. You’ll hopefully rid yourself of all the stuff you just don’t need. And obviously you’ll save money on rent and utilities. Downsizing is an opportunity to start over.

Once a happy relationship goes sour, the hassle of moving out and moving on becomes the focus. When two lives (and sets of belongings) come together, how do you go about splitting everything up? With judges, lawyers and pre-nups, the lines are clearly drawn for married folks, but what about couples that have lived together without walking down the aisle?

The whole situation is a catch-22. On one hand, you don’t want to transfer bad karma to your new place with a bunch of things that remind you of your ex. But at the same token, you probably can’t afford to buy all new stuff.

So, what’s a brokenhearted guy or girl to do?

After dating someone for a while, the question of moving in together is bound to come up. At first, it seems like a logical idea. After all, why pay for two apartments when you’re spending all your time together anyway?

But just because it seems to make financial sense doesn't make it an all-around good decision. There are lots of other factors that need to be fleshed out if moving in together is a hot topic of conversation between love birds.

Are you really ready to move in with your boo? Here are some signs that you should probably think twice before planning an elaborate his and her living space.

Whether you've rented one or more apartments over the years, it’s likely that your space has amassed the look and feel of a juvenile dormitory. You know exactly what we mean – the chemistry textbook holding up one leg of the card table in the kitchen. Or maybe you have a milk crate that doubles as an ottoman or DVD storage bin in the living room. It’s time to step up your apartment living swag and take your space from dorm room drab to totally boss. Find your perfect apartment now! So, how exactly do you make that happen?

There’s a million directions to go when deciding how to decorate your apartment. You can keep it calm and subtle, or go all out to create an atmosphere that really speaks to your personality.

The latter sounds fun, doesn't it?

Switching up the look and feel of your apartment is a great way to keep falling in love with your small space. To keep things fresh, a seasonal theme is ideal. Luckily, a bright burst of orange can work at multiple points throughout the year.

When you think of Thanksgiving, what’s the first thing that comes to mind? Cheesy thoughts of an overly happy family gathered around a perfectly golden turkey and heaping mounds of mashed potatoes is probably what you imagine.

But that’s not the case for everyone. Believe it or not, some people do choose to spend Thanksgiving without their friends and family.

But why?
