Pots, pans, toaster, hangers, rug, coasters, toothbrush! The list goes on and on. You do not want to be unpacking and realize that you forgot something important!

Here is a quick list of things you need for your apartment that you might not know you need:

Toilet plunger

This may not be the first thing you think to buy, but you should make sure you always have a plunger handy. You do not want to be in a situation wishing you had one.

Fire extinguisher

Everyone says it, “I am safe, I won’t let a fire happen on my watch!” Yet, what happens when you accidentally cook your leftover pizza a little too long or forget to take the spoon out of your soup when you microwave it? Just like the plunger, you do not want to be wishing you had a fire extinguisher when you need it!

Shower curtain/liner/rings/rod

Growing up, I had never seen my mom buy a shower curtain or rod, I always just assumed we always had one. You are responsible for providing your shower curtain, liner, rings and in some apartments, the shower rod!


Some people may not know this, but some apartments come furnished. Know which ones you need to provide your own furniture and which ones you do not (like GSS and SSS)! And if you are looking for where to find decent furniture, check out this post!

Ice trays/maker

You never realize how much you took ice for granted until you don’t have it for your warm glass of lemonade! Get yourself some cheap ice trays at the dollar store or be fancy and purchase an automatic ice maker!

You may not think of everything, and that is okay. We have you covered on what you need to provide for you apartment! If you have any questions on what you need, give us a call or send a message to!
