Packing My First Night Box

When preparing to move it is important to remember to pack a first night box....or if you plan to take your time unpacking (like me) a first month box.

This box will make it easy for you to access the essentials of everyday living and should be separate from other boxes.

I have mine (which turned into more than one box) all packed.....

So here are a couple of ideas of items to add to your "First Night Box" checklist:

  • Cleaning supplies
  • Toiletries
  • Change of clothes
  • Flashlight and light-bulbs
  • Paper towels 
  • Telephone
  • Trash Bags
  • Dry food and snacks
  • Pet food and necessities
  • Bath mat, shower curtain, and towels
  • Water or filter system
  • Basic tools (ex. screwdriver)
  • Blankets and linen
  • Paper Shades
It is great to have this box prepared not only to get you through the first night, but to have supplies to last a couple days as you unpack so that you can unpack with ease and avoid having to run to the store for things.
