A difficult task, isn’t it? But we will help you deal with it. We offer a list of 10 things that will allow you to quickly get used to a new place. You are unlikely to survive without them for the first time after moving.
Water and food
You are moving to another district, region, city. Everything here is completely unfamiliar to you. Even finding a regular grocery store takes time. Therefore, you must have at least a minimum set of food and water with you. Among the products you can take with you are vegetables and fruits, pasta, coffee or tea bags, canned food, a little sugar and salt, and portioned cream. If your new apartment already has a refrigerator, you can stock up on semi-finished products.
It is clear that even a minimal set of products requires utensils: cups, spoons, plates and forks. Collect a set of these dishes for each family member. Also add kitchen utensils that you may need for cooking: a small saucepan, a knife, a cutting board. If your family is large, you can take a slow cooker with you. She can cook almost everything: first course, second course, casserole, pastry, and it doesn’t take up much space.
Clothes and shoes
You are leaving this house forever and, of course, you will take all your things with you. But you need to make a minimum supply of clothes and shoes for those that will be needed in the near future. All this is carefully packed and stored separately from all luggage. Here you need to add an iron, a steamer, a clothes brush – everything that will help put things in order after unpacking.
Remember about gadgets. Today life without them is “like without hands.” Place your phone, tablet, laptop, chargers, power bank, flash drives together.
Personal hygiene items
Don’t forget to take with you a classic set of personal hygiene items: soap, shampoo, shower gel, toilet paper, air freshener. You will also need accessories – a toothbrush, soap dish, hair dryer, combs. Complete the list with other products you need: cosmetics, hair masks, creams, lotions and more.
Pillows, blankets, sheets, pillowcases and duvet covers – without all this it is difficult to imagine normal sleeping conditions. To avoid “extreme” conditions and not sleep “in camping conditions”, be sure to take bedding with you.
It is advisable to make a separate list of things for the child. Teenagers can pack their own things. It is enough then to check that nothing has been forgotten. But the little ones need especially careful preparation for moving. The mother needs to take into account all the nuances of the child’s age and pack a separate set of necessary things for him. Such serious preparation will make the move much easier.
First aid kit
A necessary attribute of any trip is a first aid kit. Before you start packing it, check whether the medicine has expired. Make sure bottles containing liquid medications are tightly sealed. Expired medications with lids that are not tightly closed should be thrown away immediately. This way you will avoid health problems and will not get your things dirty due to leaked balm or extract.
