Things to Do Before You Move in Irvine, CA

The Must-Have List for Anyone Moving

By , 9:00 am on

Moving to a new home in Irvine is exciting, but the first day and night can be tedious if you are not adequately prepared. Your belongings may not have arrived yet, you may not have unpacked, or you might just be exhausted. Having a stash of the essentials will make your first few days much easier.

Items for Your Kitchen

While you’re likely to order take-out your first night, you will need to prepare something to eat at some point during your first few days. These items are necessary for making sure you don’t starve during the first few days:

  • A can opener and bottle opener
  • A medium sized pot
  • Coffee pot or other coffee brewing equipment

Items for Your Living Space

You’ll want to be comfortable and have privacy right away, and these items will make all of the difference between feeling unsettled and feeling at home in your new place.

  • A bookcase or television cabinet
  • HDMI cables for your television
  • Curtains for privacy

Items for The Bedroom

The bedroom is usually the first room to get set up and decorated. The following items will make getting ready easier as you adjust to your new home:

  • A full-length mirror
  • Curtains or blinds
  • Candles
  • Hangers
  • Clothing hamper

Miscellaneous Items to Have

These items shouldn’t be forgotten, especially if you plan to do any cleaning in those first few days:

  • Plunger
  • All-surface cleaner
  • A mop and bucket, or steam mop to make things easier
  • Windex
  • Nails and hammer for decorating
  • Laundry detergent and dryer sheets
  • Cleaning rags
  • Pet supplies if you have pets, think of doggie bags and a fresh cat litter box
