    Help Things you need when moving out?

    Advertisements
    I was wondering if you all could throw out some ideas as to things you need when you first move into your own place.

    Hopefully DB and I will be doing that next year when he gets back from deployment. I've already got a few things as I like to prepare early. I figure it could only help us because what I get now, we will not have to get later.

    Like what are somethings that you would not want to forget?
    Big and small, name them all!

    Can opener, cooking utensils, pots and pans, shower curtain with a shower curtain rod (as not all rental places provide a rod), some towels, chairs to sit on, something to eat at or set things (we bring camping chairs and table which are cheap), broom, and mop. I always take these things in my car when we PCS so we don't have to eat take out the entire time we're waiting for our household goods and are fairly comfortable.

    Other things you'll want to have right away: plates, cups, utensils, vacuum, a bed, tv and/or comp for entertainment.

    I think the rest you can build up slowly, but those would be our bare minimums along with a few other things I can't think of right now.

    Hey, now is a GREAT time to get bargains on "starter" stuff..... all the dorm/back-to-school things are on sale.... you can get stuff like cheap coffee makers, blenders, silverware, ironing boards... etc.

    Oh yeah! That's a great idea! I never thought of that... I guess they would be having sales on all that stuff now.
