  • Buying things for your first apartment can get a little overwhelming, and you may feel like you don’t know where to start.

    The sense of immediacy moving in can make it easy for you to be lured into spending too much money on the things you need, instead of shopping around for the best price.

    Don’t make the mistake of overspending on household necessities when you can get these items for less using the right methods.

Vacuum

Notes:

  • A vacuum cleaner is a must-have for any home. You’ll need to be able to keep your space clean, especially because moving will probably bring debris from outdoors inside your apartment.
  • Even though a vacuum cleaner is a necessity, you don’t need to go out and buy an industrial-grade one.
  • What you need is a sturdy vacuum cleaner that gets the job done, but is not that expensive. The more features the cleaner has, like multiple head and tool attachments, the higher-priced it will be.
  • You do not need ten attachments for your vacuum to function well, it just needs to be high-powered enough to properly pick up dirt and debris from your floor.
  • Search your local stores because there are many different varieties of powerful vacuum cleaners that come with great attachments and are relatively inexpensive.

Mattress

Notes:

  • Everyone knows that a mattress is a necessity, but how expensive does your mattress technically need to be? To answer that question, it does not need to be $1000 dollars to be a “good mattress” or for you to get a good night’s rest.
  • It all depends on the materials it’s made of and if it can support your needs.
  • Instead of going out and purchasing the first most expensive, name-brand one you can find, take some time to browse around. You will need a comfortable yet inexpensive mattress that supports your body and lasts a long time.
  • While that may sound extremely hard to find, with enough research, it can be done. To make your search even easier, browse discount stores first because they tend to have the same high-quality items as big-name stores, just for a lower price.

Sofa

Notes:

  • If this is your first apartment then this means it most likely won’t be your last. Meaning if you have to move again, splurging on expensive furniture is not ideal.
  • When moving, there are always casualties. Things tend to get stained, torn, and broken which is to be expected when transporting heavy furniture from your old place to your new one.
  • That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t get a sofa. It just means that you don’t need to splurge on a really expensive one just yet. With that being said, you still need a comfortable sofa.
  • Preferably, a decorative one that can serve as the focal point of your living room. Getting a couch that serves as a statement piece on its own means you won’t have to buy other things to make the room pop.

Pots and pans

Notes:

  • Many of us have been guilty of watching a cooking show on tv and then wanting to go to the nearest store to buy the best pots and pans out there. While it’s understandable to want restaurant-grade pots, the reality is that you don’t need them.
  • Unless you’re a chef, your pots only need to be functional and not very expensive.
  • Obviously you don’t want the handles of your pots and pans coming off after only a few uses, because that will only lead to you buying new ones, which isn’t cost-effective.
  • However, you don’t want to break the bank buying chef-approved cookware. When you’re out shopping for economical pots and pans, try to look at reviews online beforehand.
  • These reviews will help you know if the low price is too good to be true because sometimes low price does signify some quality issues. Consider also looking for coupons on cashback sites like Ibotta as they offer a variety of deals.

Television

Notes:

  • When things finally settle down after a day of moving, you’ll likely want to engage in some form of entertainment, like watching tv.
  • While it would be nice to have a television, you don’t necessarily need it right away. You can purchase one later, once your budget is bigger.
  • In the meantime, you can use your laptop to access video streaming services like Netflix and Youtube. They usually have a monthly fee, but it’s more cost-effective than buying a brand new tv.
  • You’ll also need wifi, of course. Wifi can be pricey, so look for companies that offer first-time customer deals and discounts. Since you don’t have a tv, you won’t need to pay for cable, which lowers your bill even more. If you absolutely need a television in your life, get a smaller one because they are usually less expensive.
  • QUESTION? While all of these things are necessary items, there are ways to save money when going out to purchase them.
