You’ve finally done it. After years of living with your parents or guardians, you’ve found a place you can finally call your own. Maybe you’ve just graduated college and are prepared to move out into the real, adult world. Maybe it’s taken you a little longer than that, but you’ve finally done it. Moving into your first apartment can be an exciting time. After all the stress of finding a place, hunting ads, scheduling appointments, and then finally securing deposits and roommates and move-in dates, now you can finally kick back and plan the move. Then you realize that moving is pretty stressful too, but luckily, there are ways to make it easier.
There’s no need to splurge on furniture for your first apartment. Try to get as many of the items you need from friends and family, or buy them at garage sales and discount stores. This is a time for creativity- your dining table can substitute for a desk or vice versa until you find something within your budget. Here are the items you will most likely need:
- Dining table and chairs
- Desk and chair
- TV with a supporting stand
Your Personal Items
Most importantly, don’t leave important personal items behind. Things like furniture and office supplies and even bedding you can buy most anywhere, but some things can’t be easily replaced. If you’re living on your own then you are generally responsible for your own well-being. If you’re moving far, especially, you don’t want to leave any of the following behind: birth certificate, social security card, checkbook, insurance cards, ID cards, passport, credit and debit cards. You might even want to invest in a safe to keep important documents, or an accordion folder to hide in your closet that organizes all of your important documents.
