Focus on the Family

family blog

Ditch The space is a site that is geared towards everyone and anyone. While we have focused a lot on college students and the young twenty something’s we want you to know we are here for everyone’s use. So with that said, today we are changing it up and focusing on the family.

Families, aw that word has so much behind it. For some of us we smile and for others of us we cringe. Whatever feelings arise you still know what a family looks like.

My family and I are from Orange County, CA. I grew up with a swimming pool, backyard, and I got to play outside basically every single day (The benefits of no winter). Moving here was definitely rough at times, but I have figured out how to manage. Here in New York City pools and big backyards don’t exist. Families across American look so different, to each their own.

However, If that last part got you thinking, wishing, and hoping about more space then maybe it is time to switch it up. Maybe it is time to move out of the city and into Brooklyn, Queens, Jersey, Connecticut, you name it! If you are truly ready then take the first step and head on over to If you are just toying with the idea still head on over to and be inspired! Let us help you find your new gain and or inspire you. Don’t feel bad about ditching your NYC Apartment. Look at your ditch as helping someone else find their new gain. “Your Ditch is Their Gain”. Forget dreading ditching your apartment and focus on what could be. Think about all the wonderful memories that are going to be made in your new place. The move will be well worth your while! And hey, once you realize the value of much more room for you and your wonderful family maybe, just maybe the extra space will entice you to add another little one to your gang.

Summer travel: But first sublet your space!

Sublet your space with us this summer and travel! Travel now because the value of the Dollar is stronger than ever! It is time to explore European countries and get more bang for your buck. However, as we know and have experienced it is not that simple. In fact, it is much more complicated than that. The truth is logistics come into play. We must think about bills and figure out how it is possible to travel and still pay rent, not to mention rent!!! Did I mention paying rent? Sadly it is hard to travel and pay rent without stressing over finances.

There are many options to avoid this inevitable headache like planning and saving for years, but why? Why don’t you allow your wanderlust soul to take root and go this summer, why wait! Go to the places you have imagined and day dreamed about while at your 9 to 5 job! Let’s stop for one moment and just imagine. Imagine those places, those smells, and that tan that will add a fine color of soul refreshment to your tone.

I know we here at Ditch The Space, have dreamed about a get away to Paris or even a long stay in Monaco. Can you see it now? We sure can!

This summer it is time to stop getting in the way of adventure! Go adventure and wander, but before that let us help you. Let us help you eliminate that headache of having to worry about rent on top of travel costs!

So Travel now but first head over to to sublet your space. Think how much more fun and stressful free it will be to make money from your unused space? All you have to do is upload your space, on, that you’re going to ditch this summer. Your ditch will be someone else’s gain and ultimately that space will help another traveler chase after an adventurous summer and not to mention help you expand your own travel budget.

Spring Time Sublets… Maybe Williamsburg? Anyone?


One of our favorite things about spring is the joy that it brings to New York. It is soul fueling for every New Yorker that just survived that long and brutal winter. New York is a place where you go to find adventure and chase after experiences; we would be lying if we said seasons didn’t add to our cities je ne sais quoi. The reason being is that different seasons make different areas of the city more intriguing and for us in spring that is Williamsburg. Don’t we all just love the artsy souls that seem to congregate there? This is our go to place for subletting in spring because Williamsburg offers so much to its people. They have everything from fabulous food, arcade bars to outdoor flea market. One of our favorite flea markets is Smorgasburg ( it is by far one of our favorites because it takes place outdoors and the community of local vendors and artist that come together to hang out and embrace the local businesses. Since it takes place outside it sadly must close every year for winter and all winter long we anticipate it’s fourth coming once again. Alongside flea market fabulousness, Williamsburg has affordable boutiques and secret rooftop gems, which offers spectacular views of the city.(Hint.. Hint.. Above Urban Outfitters) Not to mention it is close to the Brooklyn Botanical gardens, which are a must see in spring. The cherry blossoms alone will put a smile on your face and you will begin to wonder if winter was actually just a bad nightmare.

Why don’t you just spring on over to Williamsburg, but first you spring on over to and find your next gain so that you can be springing into a new place, maybe conveniently located in the heart of Williamsburg? Currently we have places that offer residency for as little as 1 month or as long as two years. Happy spring my fellow friends! Now go spring into action!!
