Setting Up A New Home

Moving Box

Moving Box

So it’s no surprise Mr Marine and I are moving next week. And it’s even less of a surprise to say I’m excited! A handful of friends have moved into new homes recently and almost all of them have said something to the effect of, “You don’t realize how much stuff you need just to set up!” or “I wish I knew what I needed.” Mr Marine is only bringing up his clothes and furniture. I’m bringing mainly clothes and furniture. So I’ve thrown together a list of essentials that you’ll need to start a new home, or set up new if you’ve had to leave everything behind. Tuesday I’m going to print this out and take it with me to the commissary. Please let me know your thoughts or if I’ve missed anything in the comments below:
