Essentials for Moving into a New House Moving and Storage

Moving into a new place can be a stressful experience, especially when everyday essentials are not available within arm’s reach. Before moving, consult this checklist for essentials for moving into a new house – and make sure they are easily accessible after the move.

Food & Drink

– Water – Often times, water is not drinkable when you first move in. Bring water bottles or use a Brita filter so that you can easily filter the water.

– Dried snacks – These don’t require refrigeration and can be enjoyed on the go.

– Food basics – Bread, peanut butter, apples, nuts, crackers, granola, yogurt, milk, etc.
