Moving Day Must Haves

Moving Day Must Haves

I recently posted a poll on Facebook about what items do you wish you had with you on moving day. You know, those things that no one tells  you that you will need to bring along on that already busy, stressful, chaotic day. Do you remember your first move? What would you like to have on-hand? Wish your friends and family had told you about? Or better yet, have them show up bearing?

There is nothing like packing up your old, or arriving at your new home and realizing that you need to run to the store to grab one more, okay, two more...or maybe a whole cart full of things that you are not prepared with.

The most popular items on our poll were:

  • Tape

  • Scissors

  • Sharpies / markers

  • Paper towels / plates / toilet paper

  • Color coded stickers

  • Soap (for hands and dishes)

  • Clorox wipes

  • General household cleanser

  • New toilet seats

  • New doorknobs/locks for all exterior doors


  • Bottled water / drinks

  • Easy to grab snacks

  • Trash bags

  • Vacuum cleaner / broom / mop

  • Nice bottle of wine (or two, or a case...whatever...)

  • Candle

  • Things to keep the kids entertained (games, coloring books, toys)

  • Plastic utensils

  • Food storage containers

What would you add to the list?
