TIP: New hires should travel light.
If you are a new college graduate and you've just been hired, carefully consider how you start accumulating stuff. You are starting a life pattern, and your new wealth may tempt you to over-spend. Don't buy too much too quickly; but when you buy, buy exactly what you want and items of good quality. Think carefully about how all the things match in style and work together (for example, don't buy a clock and a radio, and then a combination clock/radio/telephone). Don't buy anything that two people can't lift because it is likely that you'll move again, and possibly not at the expense of the company that just hired you. By living light, you'll be able to enjoy starting out in life and finding excitement in what you do rather than what you have.
