Moving to a new home is a major transition in life and it’s one that you’re not going to get used to in the space of a few days. It will take a bit of time to properly adjust, which is inevitable for such a significant change.
You’ll probably find upon moving into your new residence that there’s a lot of essential household items you’ll need to purchase. In your old home, you’ll have had cookware, cleaning products and many other things that you found and used without a moment’s thought, knowing exactly where they were, but these might not be so readily available at your new home. Quite often, it’s only when you go looking for them that you realize you need them.
Also, there could be some hugely important items missing from the new house, such as a first aid kit and a fire extinguisher. These are among the first things you should check when you get the keys to your new home, given their importance and that they might be needed urgently (but hopefully won’t be).
The folks at EZ Living Interiors created a very informative and practical infographic containing a list of essential household products, divided into various rooms throughout the house, that you’ll need for your new home. Check it out below and make sure you’re not leaving yourself short.
