If you’re in the process of buying your first house, you’ve probably spent some time thinking about all of the things you need to buy. From furniture to kitchen utensils to tools to cleaning supplies, there’s a lot to get. Keeping track of it all is hard!
I just bought my first house this year, so I’m very familiar with how overwhelming it is stocking up on all of the necessities. There were a lot of items I knew to get prior to moving in, but I still ended up making many trips to Target after moving in because I realized how much I had missed. While on one of those many shopping trips, I thought, “This would be so much easier if I just had one big list of everything!”
To make moving into your first home a little easier, I created a comprehensive list of everything you’ll need for your home. You can head here to access the full list on a free, printable PDF.
While everyone’s needs will vary, this list covers all of the basic necessities for a first home. Here’s a preview of some of the items on that list:
Food Storage Containers
Pots and Pans
Temporary Seating (I ordered my living room sectional three months ago and it still hasn't arrived. Plan for temporary seating in case your big furniture items have delayed delivery times as well!)
