If you are living overseas for a long time, consider renting a fully furnished apartment.
Work smarter, not harder.
If you don’t see yourself returning home anytime soon, then consider renting a fully furnished apartment. On many occasions, expats will rent an apartment and buy furnishings and electronics for their new humble abode only to sell everything at almost any price days before they return home. Unless you want to pay the hefty shipping charges, hold off on purchasing big items until you get home.
