Moving Day Must Haves

This next few weeks I’ll be knee deep in packing tape and boxes. Yes, we’re moving in less than 3 weeks! I’m one excited girl to be moving into our first place together! A condo right on the Monon Trail. I am looking forward to having my own closet and a garage! A couple sneak peaks:


I have compiled a list of items that may be overlooked as things you need to have for the big move!

1. Cleaning supplies: I discovered that ‘move in ready’ still means ‘that toilet is totally gross.’ Be prepared with an all-purpose cleaner and plenty of disinfectant wipes and paper towels.

2. Candle: There’s nothing like the smell of a candle to immediately make a new place smell like home.

3. Pocket knife: Because who knew you needed so many boxes??

4. Sharpies: For making the zillion and one lists of what to pack and what you still need.

5. Tape: Color coded packing tape = genius.

6. Wine: At the end of the day, you’re going to need this.

7. Clear plastic crate: This time around we bought several crates for the move and they’re brilliant!

8. Trash bags: Ginormous super strong trash bags are the easiest way I’ve found to move clothes. Bag ‘em up!

9. Strong friends and family!
