So, recently I've been asked to post the things that have made my life so much easier having in our first apartment. There are a few things that have made life great and things that I think that one person can not live without in their apartment.
First, if you are a newlywed and was not able to have that big huge wedding and was not able to have a bridal shower. Ask your mom or mother-in-law if it is possibly to have a tiny bridal shower with direct family. THIS WILL HELP YOU A BUNCH!
2. Bathroom accessories- This is not an absolute essential and they do not need to be expensive. But since my mother and mother in law threw me a bridal shower, I was able to get my ENTIRE bathroom set, including towels, shower curtain, rugs, and pictures. My set was from Bed Bath & Beyond. Total- A LOT!
3. Pots and Pans- Having these have made life absolutely so much easier. We have used these every single day. Must have. My set is easy to clean, non stick and Calphalon. Cost- $200
4. Washer & Dryer- BEST THINGS WE HAVE BOUGHT! We had been using our friends for a couple weeks, but finally bought our own. We bought matching top-loading washer and the dryer. We got ours from Lowes with our military discount costing us $1153.
5.Canisters- Holds sugar, flour, pasta, brown sugar, powder sugar, coffee beans, they are great space savers. This is one of the main things that we wanted from our registry. They leave all these items open to you, so you do not have to leave them in a closet, and can access them $20 at Bed Bath Beyond.
Another thing, at my bridal shower for our wishing well we were given cleaning supplies. The best decision that we did. We were given a vacuum, a swiffer wet-jet and TONS of cleaning supplies.
