If you’re moving into your new house or apartment, move-in day will be a rushed and messy ordeal. It’s best to be prepared with the basic necessities. These seven essentials include must-haves for various areas of your home as well as some things to ensure your comfort during the first few days.
Towels and Toiletries
Feeling stinky and sweaty after a hard day of work? You’ll be wanting easy access to towels and toiletries when you’re getting settled in your new place. Pack a bag or small box filled with your shampoos, soaps and bathroom towels to keep handy.
After a long day of moving and unpacking, you’ll want a comfortable mattress and fresh sheets to rest on. While the first few weeks of your move will be all about getting acquainted, never sacrifice your sleep time.
You never know when an accident will strike, so it’s wise to keep an emergency kit of first-aid basics. Keep a kit with bandages, antibiotic ointment, pain killers and alcohol close by.
For small DIY projects, maintenance and repair tasks, and hanging portraits and shelves, you’ll want tools like a screwdriver, hammer and nails nearby.
Kitchen Utensils and Dishes
Whether you plan on cooking or ordering take-out for the first few days in your new home, you’ll need your kitchen utensils and plates around. You can eat on countertops and couches serving as makeshift tables, but spoons, forks and knives are a must.
With a few cleaning supplies at your disposal, you can spruce up the furniture as you unpack it. Keep your favorite cleaning tools around so you don’t add to the mess that may already be present from the moving process.
Something of Meaning
To make your new living space feel like home, set out something meaningful to you. This could be a family portrait, your favorite lounge chair or a household item that was gifted to you by a special someone.
