3 Essential Items You Need On Moving Day

When you’re preparing for a move, it can be easy to forget the small things that you need to make the process smooth. It’s easy to feel overwhelmed and stressed and wishing you would have been better prepared with the essentials. Make the process easy by keeping these 3 items on hand on moving day:

A Small Overnight Bag

One of the best ways to feel put together and polished during your move is to pack a bag like you’re spending the night out of town. Because let’s face it, your new place will feel like you are staying out of town! Plan ahead by bringing a change of clothes, pajamas, toiletries, toothpaste, bath essentials, pillow and blanket, chargers, snacks, and toilet paper. Taking a nice bath or shower and sleeping sound will feel great at the end of the moving day.

Cleaning Supplies

Picture this: the last box has been loaded in the moving truck and you’re standing inside your empty house when you realize the floors are dirty, the bathroom needs a cleaning, and dust is in every corner. You may even find a similar condition at your new place and you’re going to want to spruce it up before your things get moved in. That’s why it’s important to have your basic cleaning supplies on hand like rags, paper towels, brooms, dustpan, bathroom cleaner, and various cleaning sprays. It feels good to give your home a good clean before moving your things in or out.


Whatever you do, don’t forget to bring basic tools! Put them in a clearly labeled box so you can easily access them as you unpack your things. It’s very likely you will need tools the first week of living in your new home to hang photos, measure furniture, and more. Think about including a hammer, multiple screwdrivers, measuring tape, pliers, scissors, and a utility knife.
