Moving into or renting your first apartment can be an exciting and confusing time. What are the necessities needed? What items should you buy? What should you leave? To help you cut through the clutter, I’ve put together the First Apartment Essentials Checklist for renters. This list can be used as a moving apartment checklist for those looking to move as well.
Since there are wide variations in what people deem “necessity items”, I’ve made this list fairly broad, and hopefully helpful to a range of apartment renters. The essential items are grouped under these headings for best organization: Basic Furniture, Bedroom, Bathroom, Kitchen, Laundry, Cleaning, Closet & Storage, Personal, and Odds & Ends.
