Moving Day Essentials

When moving day comes around, it can be easy to overlook the essentials. These are the small things that are so ingrained in your life that you often don’t think about because they’re automatically assumed to be there. While you may not forget to pack them, they might find their way into an inconvenient or unmarked box.

This month, we’ve compiled a list of some moving day essentials that you may have overlooked. Keep these items accessible throughout your move.

Cleaning Supplies

Whether from the traffic of your moving party or the previous residents, there’s bound to be some cleaning to do before you can finally settle in. You’ll want to keep some of the following cleaning supplies handy:

Paper towels
Cleaning spray
Small vacuum
Dishwasher/Laundry detergent
Broom and dustpan
Toilet bowl cleaner

Even if the previous owners cleaned up before you moved in, there’s still bound to be something to clean, so keep your supplies within reach.

Toothbrush and Toiletries

Most people automatically brush their teeth at least once a day, so it’s easy to toss it into a box when packing your bathroom. Make a separate box just for your toothbrush, paste, and other toiletries so that you have them when you need them!


Whatever happens, you don’t’ want to forget your toolkit. If you box it up, make sure that you’ve clearly labeled the box and know where to find it at all times. It will be a better idea to just pack it in the car with you if you have the room.
The chances are that you’ll need some tool or another when you move in. Whether you need to cut something or hang pictures, you’ll need a toolkit at the ready.

Fire Extinguisher

Accidents happen. You never know what life will throw at you, especially if you’re testing out your new kitchen. It would be a good idea to keep it handy just in case your new oven doesn’t work as well as you thought it would. It would be an even better idea to keep it in the kitchen long after the move. Safety first!

Electronics Chargers and Cables

These days, your phone is integral to your daily life. You’ll want to keep your phone’s battery topped off. Don’t toss your charger into a random box! Keep it in a purse or backpack.

If you rely on your laptop or tablet, keep those chargers at the ready. Even if you don’t need them during the actual move, you may need them when you’re settling in.
