Whew — you made it! The moving truck’s gone and the unpacking has begun. One quick check, though: What did you trash while you were packing, reasoning that it was too big and heavy or too dirty and old to bother with? That list may be longer than you think.
From your not-so-fluffy bed pillows to your kitchen trash can, you probably left a lot behind when you were sorting the must-pack items from the “hmm, maybe this can go” pile. (And some you left behind intentionally — like the toilet brush, right?) Use this handy checklist to stock up on the must-have items you’ll need to get settled in your new home.
