Furniture shopping for an apartment can be lots of fun. Personally, I found it difficult to shop online for large pieces of furniture because it was difficult to picture exactly how the furniture would look and feel in my apartment. Thus, this led to a search at regular furniture stores for the best deals and pieces to really make an apartment feel like home. The excitement for move-in day builds with every couch sat on and pillow fluffed. Shopping at these stores really brings together a home.

Ikea will always be an amazing store to go to for apartment and home shopping. The furniture available at IKEA is affordable and lasts. IKEA is available in countries all over the world, which makes it a good furniture store for travelers who may not know the local furniture stores of the host country. IKEA is also a great place to get inspiration for decorating and designing from the way the store is designed.

Target is also a fantastic store to purchase furniture. Many people think of Target as a great place to find things for the house, but don’t realize it is a good store for big furniture as well. An entire apartment can be furnished with just Target furniture and decorations. In addition to furnishing an apartment, it can also be used to buy the first groceries for an apartment or to stock up on any electronics and cleaning supplies needed.

Travelers are already savvy about keeping trash out of oceans and focused on our rising shorelines. But according to MarineSafe, sunscreen is one of the biggest and permanent polluters to our oceans. The common sunscreen ingredients oxybenzone and octinoxate are toxic to coral reefs and other marine life. The chemicals are shown to cause coral bleaching that ultimately leaves the coral vulnerable to infection and malnourished. Of course, sunscreen isn’t the only source of pollution in our oceans, but is quickly escalating into a crisis.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
