8 Things Your First Apartment Needs

Moving out on your own is exciting especially if you are doing it for the first time. It is always a good idea to have a plan for when things go south with your newly acqured freedom because if they do, you guessed it, you are on your own. Let’s compile a list of must haves on the moving day like: spare key, plunger, tool kit, emergency kit and some furniture tips to help you on you own not be a disaster in the making.

Key Takeaways:

  • If a spare key wasn’t already provided to you by your landlord, you may want to think about having a duplicate made at your local hardware store for a small fee.
  • Living on your own comes with a fair amount of paperwork, and it may be a good idea to keep it all organized and in one central location.
  • For everything from hanging artwork to assembling furniture, a basic toolkit can be a must-have.

“Rather than relying on your landlord or calling a locksmith, consider being proactive and have at least one spare key made.”
