The moving truck is packed, and your life is in boxes, yet your excitement remains unbridled – why? Because it’s move-in day! Moving into a new apartment home can be stressful, so we've compiled a move-in checklist of 10 new apartment must-haves to ensure this exciting day becomes the best.
- Bed Linens and Towels: Ensure you have your bed linens, including sheets, pillowcases and towels, for a comfortable start in your new space.
- Toilet Paper and Toiletries: Bring enough toilet paper for the first few days and essential toiletries like toothpaste, toothbrush, soap, shampoo and conditioner.
- Basic Cleaning Supplies: Bring small cleaning essentials such as multi-surface cleaners, paper towels and trash bags to freshen up your new home quickly.
- Shower Curtain: Don't forget a shower curtain – an often overlooked but essential for a functional bathroom.
- Lamps: Check the lighting situation and bring a lamp to brighten your space immediately. Many apartment bedrooms do not have overhead lighting, so lamps are essential for apartments.
- Toolkit: Pack a small toolkit with basic tools like a screwdriver, pliers and a hammer for any adjustments or furniture assembly.
- Extension Cords, Power Strips and Phone Charger: Bring extension cords and power strips to ensure you have enough outlets for your devices. Speaking of devices, make sure you have your chargers handy.

- Important Documents: Keep essential documents, including your lease agreement, identification and moving paperwork, in a secure and easily accessible folder.
- First Aid Kit: Prepare a basic first aid kit with bandages, pain relievers and medications for minor emergencies.
These moving day essentials aim to make your transition into your new space smooth and comfortable. Remember, it's not just about unpacking boxes; it's about unpacking the potential for a fresh start and creating a home.
