Moving away from home and into an apartment may seem overwhelming, but good preparation and planning can alleviate a lot of stress. Furniture is the most obvious thing needed to fill up those empty rooms, but there are a lot of little things that are needed to make things go smoothly.
Once a place has been decided on, like one of the Manayunk apartment buildings, it will need to be stocked with grooming products. One thing that is easy to forget about until it is needed is toilet paper. Make sure that is one of the first things brought to the new place because it will come in handy. Other items are needed for personal hygiene, most importantly a toothbrush and toothpaste. A shower can be put off for a day or two but going an entire day without brushing teeth is a bad idea.
Eating out during the busy period spent unpacking and arranging the new place is perfectly fine. However, it is usually a lot more expensive than cooking meals at home and dining in. Invest in cookware, even if it is just a few saucepans and a frying pan to cook staples in. Not only will it save money but learning to cook is a valuable skill that everyone should know the basics of. A coffee pot or tea kettle is also a good investment, as it saves trips to the local café.
- Cleaning Supplies
Even if it is scrubbed from floor to ceiling when first leased, it will need to be cleaned regularly. A bathroom cleaner that fights mildew is a good purchase to make and should be used weekly. Things for dusting, sweeping, vacuuming and wiping windows are also needed to keep the place from accumulating grime. For the kitchen, a cleaner with good germ-killing abilities should be used regularly.
Renting an apartment is the easy part. Learning to keep a dwelling in good shape and fully stocked requires practice but can be very rewarding.
