The Millennial Miser has a new home: Minnesota!

I’ve moved to several new cities for my career. So, I feel like I’ve gotten pretty good at everything that’s involved with the moving process. But with every move comes a few personal finance challenges.

Over the next few weeks as I settle into my new place, I’m going to share the challenges I encountered this time and how I overcame them — with a few personal finance stumbles along the way.

Of course, there are moving expenses. My move became more expensive because my new apartment wasn’t ready when I needed to leave my old place.

And once the move is over, there are still plenty of logistics to take care of. Department of Motor Vehicle lines to wait in. A 401k rollover to complete. New insurance information to learn.

Has anyone else just completed a move? What lessons did you learn? Anybody about to move, whether to the state next door or across the country? Email me at, and stay tuned!

Update: I’ve been writing a lot about my recent move…

401(k) rollover? Don’t let your eyes glaze over. Here’s how to make the process painless.

Beware of hidden moving costs, whether your move is across town or out of state
