In just two months, I’ll be moving to my first apartment and I’m super excited for all the experiences that come with that. But with experiences come expenses. Ever since I saw my apartment for the first time, I was making a shopping list of everything I need. I figured I’d help out anyone else who is trying to make sure they have all their ducks in a row before they move into their own place. I also picked some of my favorite items from Target to link in this article so you guys can get some ideas.
I like this one because it’s got big drawers for my larger products, and I can keep my palettes on top. It’s clear so I can see everything and it won’t take up too much space either!
I love using turbie twist towels! They leave my hair tangle free! Maybe it’s a bit of an extra expense, but it’s well worth it!
Unless you have a sliding door, this is an obvious purchase. You can always use curtains to spice up a boring bathroom! I’ve been really into floral patterns so this one is my favorite so far!
This will definitely come in handy for me since my bathroom doesn’t have any cabinetry in it. It’s easier to store things vertically than horizontally!
First Aid Kit
This one is super cute and not too heavy. Just enough for a chilly morning! I love having small throw blankets around the house just in case.
Plants / Decorations
Couch / Chairs
This may not apply for many people, but the apartment I’m moving into is fully furnished. I get a couch and two chairs in the family room that don’t match each other and look a little worn out. They don’t even match the walls!
Lighting (for those without overhead lights)
Garbage / Recycle Cans
Ok, let’s be honest- WATER DOESN’T TASTE THE SAME EVERYWHERE!!! Sometimes I think it taste dirty. A water filter (to me) is a necessity.
Great for reminders regarding grocery needs! I’m very forgetful so this could really come in handy.
Dishes / Bowls
Silverware / Cutlery
Cups / Glasses
Odds are, when you first get your apartment you’ll be on a tight budget. You can’t let any food go to waste! Left overs aren’t bad!
Microwave (if not included)
Table / Chairs
Comforter / Quilt
Lighting (again, if overhead isn’t included)
Those are some of the items on my shopping list! Let me know if I left anything out (I probably did). Are you moving soon? Did my list help you? Let me know!
