In the world of cross-country moves, things don’t always go as planned and you may find yourself living in a hotel. We spent about a week in a hotel once we arrived in Augusta, and it was an interesting experience.
- Bring your own stuff (soap, toiletries, towels, pillows, etc.). I don’t know about y’all, but I am not a fan of hotel bath products. I brought toiletries, some of our soap, and a few other things to make the hotel feel a bit more homey. These are especially nice if you’re going to be there longer than a week.
- Try out an extended stay hotel. A lot of extended stay brands have kitchenettes or suites with a separate living room area. Kitchenettes give you some flexibility with your meal options. A larger room gives everyone the chance to have a bit of their own personal space.
- Balance your meals. As much as you may enjoy dining out on the town, it can be a bit tiring after days or weeks. Depending on your transportation and hotel room amenities, you can hit up a grocery store and buy ingredients for breakfast or quick lunches / dinners to make in your room.
- Get out of the room every day. Hanging out in a hotel room every day is just obscenely boring, and I started to go a bit stir-crazy. This is a great chance to explore your new hometown, and you can find lots of free stuff to do. We picked an errand each day to give our outings a bit of meaning.
