I'm moving into my first apartment (well, second if you count the one I lived in while abroad, but that was only for a month) and so far, here's what I'm bringing:
Bedroom: comforter, sheets, pillows, throw pillows, bed side lamp, clock, wall clock, framed photos, desk, school supplies, office accessories, desk chair, ottoman/end of bed thing, hangers, closet storage, brand spankin new early birthday present LCD TV, wall calendar
Bathroom: shower curtain, liner, rod, rings, towels, rug, toothbrush holder, soap dispenser, tumbler, some kind of storage for under sink TBD
Kitchen: flatware, dishware, cups/glasses (all covered by roommate), chef's knife, cutting board, wine glasses, hand mixer, fry pan, cookie sheets (me), random tools (other roommates) but I'm the one who loves cooking!
Family room: lamps, old TV and TV stand, will definitely need decorative stuff
Outdoors: (we have a patio) patio table, chairs, and umbrella, Weber kettle, candles, welcome mat, planters (hate bare entrances!), tools (hammer, screw driver, duct tape, haha)
I'm sure we'll need a bunch more, but it'll be fun to shop together! Looking forward to it.
