What Should I Bring to My First Apartment?

The time is finally here for you to move into your first apartment. You may be busy with packing your essentials for moving in, but you also may be wondering what you should bring to the apartment. Many people who are new to moving into a new place may not know exactly how much or how little to bring into the apartment. It’s encouraged to only bring the necessities because eventually, you’ll have to move again in the future. It’s not smart to bring unnecessary items that you won’t use.


Here’s something to think about when packing to move into your first apartment:

Packing for moving 

Think Like a Minimalist


If you sign a lease for a year, it’s probable that you’ll eventually accumulate more “stuff” over the year, which means you’ll have more things to pack up when you leave after the lease. This can cause more stress when you’re packing up. When you start to pack, pack the necessities. The essentials should be boiled down to your clothes, toiletries, and other electronics. These should be the basics when you pack. Of course, you’ll have other things you’ll need depending on what the apartment comes with.


Make it Your Own Place


The number one thing you’ll want to do once you get into the apartment is to make the place your own. Put a stamp on the apartment with your style. By this, we mean it’s important to add your taste to the apartment as much as you can with the restrictions of changes to the apartment. Posters, picture frames, flags, houseplants, and other decorations that you like are encouraged to out in your apartment. These things are rather easy to transport in and out of the apartment. The important thing to remember is that you don’t want to bring too much. Bring the most important things that you’ll want to hang up or throw in the apartment.


If you’re moving into your first apartment, remember these things. You never want to have to pack more when leaving than when you first moved in. It makes the moving out situation much more stressful.
