When I was about to move out of my parents’ place, I honestly didn’t have a clue about what I needed to get for my new place. I mean, I knew I needed the essentials, like plates and bowls, but when it came to all those important yet random things, like bath mats and lint rollers, I really didn’t know where to start.
As a true millennial, instead of asking my parents for help I turned to Google for answers. Unfortunately, no matter how many variations of “Moving Out Checklist”, “A List of Things You Need When You Move Out” or “What to Buy When Moving Out” I searched, I could never find anything that had everything laid out for me.
Fortunately for you, after doing it the hard way and moving more than 6 times in 6 years, I’ve made my very own moving out checklist. Actually, it’s the ultimate moving out checklist. It literally has everything you could think of on it, and I’ve even made it easy for your to print and check-off while your shopping at IKEA, Costco or the dollar store (because those places are seriously amazing when you’re moving out!)
I hope this helps you as much as it has me. And please let me know if you have anything to add. I’ll be honest, there are plenty of things on this list you could happily live without (it won’t kill you to go without a muffin baking pan), but it might be good just to have around in case you need it down the road or someone asks you for help right before they move out on their own for the first time. Enjoy!
