Essentials for the first day you move in

Moving day is a chaotic time, and to reduce this stress, make sure you have these five items close-by to make day one in your new home a breeze.

1. Paper products

The last thing you want to happen is to move into your new home and not be able to use the bathroom there, so stock up on toilet paper.  It is also important to get paper towels and tissues for other messes.  If you won’t be unpacking all your dishes and silverware on the first day, bring a few extra paper plates and plastic silverware so you can enjoy a meal.

2. Appliances

If your new home doesn’t come with appliances like a refrigerator, dishwasher, washer, and dryer, these are machines you must buy.  Smaller appliances like a microwave, toaster, coffee maker, and others you can purchase shortly after you move in because you can survive for a little while without them.

3. Lights and lamps

There should be basic ceiling lights in your home but you may want to bring a few extra lamps for side tables and night stands.  Pay attention to where the dark areas of your home are so you can fill them.

4. Drawers and Organizers

You’re going to have to put all your belongings somewhere, so having a few drawers to organize everything in each of your rooms is very important so things aren’t scattered everywhere.

5. Kitchen Utensils

Be sure to get the basic kitchen instruments such as pots pans, plates, bowls, cups, and silverware.  These are the fundamental items that you will need for your meals.

Pack all these necessities up and have them easily accessible for when you first get to your new house.  Zippy Shell http://www.zippyshell.com/ can help you move them at your convenience and give you the best moving experience you can.
