5 Things You Should Have on Your New Home Move-In

A family of three is moving into a new homeThe first day at a new home is usually the busiest one. If it’s not possible to have everything delivered in advance or on the day itself, make sure you have these important move-in items to make your first day at your new home easy and comfortable.

Basic Furniture

Sometimes, furniture deliveries take time due to customizations, stock availability or shipping delays. Have the couch and the bed frame and mattress ordered way in advance and delivered at least a day before you move in.

Finding a mattress store here in Utah is easy, and they offer a wide selection of affordable, high-quality furnishings that fit every budget.

Basic Kitchen Tools

Nothing’s more comforting than a home-cooked meal. Celebrate your first day at the new home by whipping up something fast and easy in the kitchen. Bring a small cooktop, a skillet, and basic dinnerware with you on the first day.

These items easily pack and fit your trunk space and will save you money from ordering takeout or food deliveries.

Canned Food

Stock up on ready to eat food items for easy meal preparations, so you don’t have to spend so much time cooking or making small frequent grocery trips to get food. This way, you also don’t have to worry about food spoilage, especially if the fridge hasn’t arrived yet. Same goes with baby food.

Personal Items and Toiletries

Things like bath essentials, personal hygiene and grooming kits, diapering items, and toilet paper are just as important as any of the items mentioned above, especially when you’re with kids.
