Your Ultimate Move In Checklist For A New Apartment

So you’re getting ready to move to a new apartment? Moving is one of the most bittersweet moments. It can be both exciting and stressful at the same time. You have a blank canvas to make yours again, but you also have a lot to accomplish in a short amount of time. You never realize how many things you have until you have to pack it up in boxes and carry each one by hand up flights and flights of stairs. Plus, odds are you have so many new things you need that you won’t even realize until you’re there! But don’t worry, we have consolidated a list to help you not have to do as much thinking.

The TECH stuff

  • Power strips

It’s safe to go ahead and bring AT LEAST one of these. You’ll have more things than you expect to plug in, and who knows where your plugs will be located in your room.

  • Batteries

In today’s age, not as many things need batteries. BUT they’re still a necessity because you will still probably use them more than you expect. Whether it’s for the TV remote, a new light, or video game controllers, you will need them for something.

The BASIC stuff

  • Toilet paper

There’s a couple of “bare necessities” you can do without for a night or two, but we promise you, this isn’t one of them. TP is one of those things you won’t realize you need until you’re 5 minute into unpacking and use your new bathroom for the first time only to realize you don’t have what’s needed.

  • Paper towels

Moving is messy. Paper towels are a necessity not only for daily life, but also for cleaning and getting your house set up.

  • Cleaning materials

One of the first things you’re going to want to do before getting your new apartment all set up is CLEAN it. Who knows how thorough the landlords were and who knows who called your apartment home before you. It’s safe to go ahead and do a deep clean of your new residence to start fresh. Bring all the cleaning supplies you will need and leave them for routine cleans afterwards.

  • Step Stool

No matter how tall you are, having one of these always seems to help. Those hard to reach areas will be discovered quickly into your move, whether you’re hanging pictures on the wall or cleaning that tall shelf that you can’t quite reach.
The DIY stuff

  • Toolbag

When I was about to start college, one of my family friends gave me a small toolbag as my graduation gift. At the time, I wasn’t quite sure why or if I would even use it. Nearly five years later, I STILL use it during every single move in event, and usually multiple times throughout the year as well. It always seems to have everything you need.

  • Hooks/Command strips

Unless you consider yourself an EXTREME minimalist, you will most likely want at least one thing on the wall for decor purposes. Command strips and hooks are perfect for this. It’s safe to go ahead and purchase the basics to allow you to hang a few things up right away. Your new place will feel like home much sooner.
