10 Things to Remember for Your New Place

When you finally move out and start living on your own, you realize A LOT of the things you take for granted at home are usually given to you by your parents. Of course, there are the basic needs every home should have, like Swedish fish, cereal, blankets and pillows... But there are other necessities we’re likely to forget about.

You are probably EXTREMELY excited when you’re about to move out, and you might forget a few things. The Michigan First team and I were brainstorming and came up with some things that could EASILY be forgotten when you’re in the rush of moving into your new place. But you definitely would NOT want to be missing these things when you need ‘em.

  • A plunger (or a raft in case of flooding)
  • Tape (any and all, duct tape, wrapping tape, tapey tape.)
  • A can opener (Soup, a spoon and… wait, how do I open this?)
  • Flashlights (YES, the power will go out.)
  • Batteries. (Don't waste playing flashlight tag)
  • Shower rings
  • Nail clippers
  • An extension cord
  • Razors (or you can just be next Sasquatch)
  • Toilet paper (you wouldn’t want to be caught without this.)

So when you do get to your new place, remember these ten things! Make sure they’re at the top of your packing/shopping list; I mean, when your light bulb burns out right when you’re about to open a can of chicken soup without a can opener… you’ll be happy you did. Have any of you forgotten something you wish you hadn’t when you moved to a new place? Or can you think of anything to add to the list? Let me know in the comments below!

Until next time,
