    Moving out: What do you need?

    When you fist move out on your own, what household things will you need? Let's narrow that. If you get a furnished apartment, you'll still have to supply household thing. Here's a list off the top of my head, but I know there are more:

    Dishes
     Plates
     Glasses
     Cups
     Silverware

    Pots and pans 
    Pot holders
    Dish cloths
    Kitchen towels

    Bath towels
    Hand towels
    Wash cloths

    Sheets
    Pillows
    Pillow cases
    Blankets

    Besides food, you'll need dish washing soap, toilet paper, scissors and light bulbs.

    That's all I can think of right now... what would you add?

    Re: Moving out: What do you need?

    When my son moved into his first apartment I packed a box with extension cords, light bulbs, paper towels, cleaning supplies, power strips, stamps, thermometer, tylenol, ibuprofin, facial tissues...I think I threw in a gift card for the grocery store and a restaurant.

    I know there was more, but that was about 15 years ago!
