Hello! I’m Jiney, a Social Media Coordinator for ForRent.com since January 2013 as well as a renter for the past few years. I want to provide you with interesting and useful articles that will help make your apartment life experience a lot better. When I’m not at work writing blogs or social media updates, you can assume I’m within 10 ft of a computer surfing the Internet for funny clips and music on YouTube, watching streams, or shopping online!



  1. Love all of these suggestions! I love transforming my space with vinyl!
  2. The suggestions are great! Just need the cash to do the transformaton.
  3. Great ideas, for me I’m a big fan of wall decals as they look nice and they’re easier to put up and take down when you move out.
