What To Take To Your New Home



Moving to a new home and trying to pack light for a few days? Or maybe you’re going to be camping out in your new home for a few weeks before the rest of your possessions arrive.

Whatever the reason, how do you know which items are essential during your first few nights and what’s optional? What do you need to bring to your new home, and what can you leave behind without kicking yourself for it later.

1. Keys

Don’t laugh — we forget the obvious all the time, and you’ll be in real trouble without these.

2. A basic first-aid kit

Moving heavy objects can result in a few nicks and scrapes. Be ready with plasters, a thermometer, a bandage, some antiseptic wipes, tweezers, and a few ibuprofen.

3. Chargers

For all your essential electronics, such as your phone, laptop, and tablet.

4. Essential paper supplies

Such as toilet paper, paper towels, tissues.

5. Wet wipes

You may not have the room to transport a full cleaning bag however Wet Wipes solve a multitude of cleanliness emergencies, take a couple of packs just in case.

6. Any medicine you take daily

Make sure your essential medicines are packed in your bag that travels with you.

7. Snacks

Fruit, nuts, or anything that requires no refrigeration, no preparation, and no utensils.

8. Radio

It’s time to go old school, particularly if your Wi-Fi won’t yet be set up.

9. A sturdy pair of scissors

If there’s only one tool you can squeeze into your bag, a pair of scissors has to be the most useful.

One final thing….

At the end of a busy moving day remember to take something to ensure you relax prior to falling into bed.  A glass of wine or a good book, take the time to wind down to ensure a good first night’s sleep in your new home.
