We feel you, packing up everything you own and moving is a pain. There’s a lot to organize, it’s time consuming, and potentially costly if you need to a hire a team of movers. As hectic as things may be, there are a few things you’re going to want to have on hand almost as soon as you walk through the door of your new place.
Keep the following items in a bag in passenger seat of your car or in an easily accessible box. You’ll thank yourself later!
Checks or Cash
Either you haven’t paid the first month’s rent yet or you want to order pizza for everyone who has helped you move. Either way, there is something you haven’t paid for yet. Don’t think you have it all covered, either. Something is bound to come up that you will have to pay for.
Paperwork is one of the easiest things to misplace. That being said, don’t misplace the paperwork for your apartment. Keep it in a brightly colored folder so you can keep an eye on it and it doesn’t get damaged. Keeping your paperwork handy will eliminate one more thing that can increase your stress.
Toilet Paper and Soap
These two are very easy to forget and very necessary. You’re going to have to use the bathroom at some point before you’re able to head to the store. Grab a roll of toilet paper and that half empty bottle of soap in your bathroom before you move and bring them with you.
A Water Bottle
No one wants to tackle a full day of loading and unpacking boxes without anything to drink. Fill up a water bottle before leaving your old place and then keep it close by throughout the day. It’s going to be a while before you unpack and remember where your cups and glasses are.
Snacks are very important for moving day. You’re going to get hungry, and unpacking, signing papers, and dealing with the people who came to help is a lot to handle on an empty stomach. You can always go out for lunch or order delivery, but having snacks on hand is a lot more convenient. We recommend granola bars, fruit, and packages of nuts.
