Alright so move in was a success… next steps:
Fill out the move in checklist!!
Be as detailed and picky as you can be. Any previous damages that go unmarked come out of your security deposit at the end of the year, so do yourself a favor and fill it out. By the way, you only have 5 days after you pick up your keys to fill the checklist out, so hurry up!
Buy the basics
If you’re coming from the dorms, your parent’s house, or your sorority or fraternity castle, then you’ve had it easy. The only thing you had to worry about was decorating, and let’s be honest, most of us don’t even do that. Toilet paper, paper towels, soap, pots, pans, cups, plates, utensils, trash bags, plunger, the list goes on and on. Check out this link for a complete list of all apartment essentials.
