    I'm making a list of main things that I need to have when I move into my apartment. Does anyone have any suggestions of things I need to pack/buy or things I need to do before I move into my apartment. Can't wait to move into my apartment because I think that it will really help me being closer to work and I won't be as stressed because of the housemates because they won't be there!!!

    When I moved into my own apartment, I needed everything because my roomie in college had a houseful of stuff by the time I met her.

    The most important things that I went right out and bought?
    A broom (and dustpan) and a kitchen trash can!!

    A couple of table or floor lamps if your place doesn't have overhead lighting.

    I don't have a good checklist but I'm a pro at moving--I've moved every summer since graduating high school in 2003. Thankfully this will be my last summer of moving for a while!!! We're buying a house this summer. We close June 22.

    Anyway... some tips...
    *Label each box
    *If you have important/special things make sure you put them in a box and leave that in the car and not with the other stuff where it can break
    *Stock up on newspaper to wrap stuff
    *This is a GREAT time to clean out your closet! Every time I move I give a big bag of clothes to Goodwill or friends. If I haven't worn something for a year or more it's gone.
