Stock up on these apartment essentials for your new place!
You signed the lease and the keys are yours. It’s time to move into your new apartment. You buy furniture, dishware, flatware and you’re all set to go. But, there are a few apartment essentials that you should have on hand. If you don’t have them already, make sure that your new apartment has these new apartment essentials and renters insurance.
When you move into a new place you’re likely going to want to make the space your own. A tool kit comes in handy when wanting to hang pictures. It also is good to have on hand in case you need to fix any minor issues throughout your home like a loose screw or leaky faucet.
Why spend money when you can do something yourself? Don’t run off to the tailor to fix your clothing, invest in a sewing kit and fix it yourself. From sewing on a button to hemming your pants, a sewing kit is a great investment.
First Aid Kit
You never know when you may need a first aid kit. Keep one on hand in your new apartment. At the very least have band aids, an antiseptic, and basic over-the-counter medicines.
From spills to stains, messes are inevitable. Keep your new apartment clean and have your cleaning supply basics on hand. Invest in a mop, bucket, broom, toilet wand, bleach, all-purpose cleaner, and rags.
Are you prepared in the event of an emergency? Make sure your apartment is equipped with a smoke detector and have a fire extinguisher on hand. Also keep a small emergency kit with extra blankets, flashlights, non-perishable food and a three day supply of water in your apartment.
Ensure that you’re new apartment is insured with renters insurance. Renters insurance helps protect you and your personal possessions in the event of theft or disaster.
