Apartment Move-in Checklist

Stressed about moving into a new apartment? It can be a little overwhelming, but having a checklist handy can make things a little easier.

Moving into another apartment is always a great accomplishment and a step forward to a new start. It also can be overwhelming. There are many tools, gadgets, and furniture that you need to make your living space complete. Making a checklist will make your transition a lot easier. Read on to find out all the things you should have on your apartment move-in checklist.


The kitchen is the place where you can find yourself forgetting tools or gradually thinking of things that you need to make your perfect cooking space. What type of food you eat will determine what kind of supplies you want. For example, if you like to make protein shakes or fruit smoothies for a healthy diet, then you should put a blender on your list. Here are some things that you might include on your list:

  • Toaster
  • Pots and Pans
  • Microwave
  • Utensils
  • Kitchen Supply Organizer
  • Bottle and Can Opener
  • Waffle Maker
  • Ziploc Bags and Food Containers
  • Cups and Mugs (Glass and Paper)
  • Plates and Bowls (Glass and Paper)
  • Coffee Maker
  • Aluminum Foil and Plastic Wrap
  • Paper Towels
  • Dish Towels
  • Trash can


Your bathroom is important for helping you to maintain your personal hygiene. It is simple to make it your perfect personal space to taking care of yourself. Here are a few things you may want to include on your bathroom checklist:

  • Toothbrush
  • Toothpaste
  • Toothbrush holder
  • Soap
  • Hand towels
  • Mats
  • Shower curtain
  • Trash can
  • Shower caddy
  • Toilet Paper


Try not to spend too much on your furniture when you first move in because you can always upgrade. Just focus on furniture that will get the job done, such as a sofa for you and your guests to sit down and relax on. Make sure you have a table and chairs for you to have lunch or even a romantic dinner. Most importantly, have a bed that will give you a good night’s sleep.

Since we threw so many things on our list we will continue to finish the checklist on next week’s blog, so stay tuned for more helpful tools to choose from for an easy apartment move in.
