The First Night Box

So you’re about spend the first night in your new home. How exciting! There are a few things that you will need to back into a special box known as ‘the first night box'.

This box holds a number of essential items that you will need when you spend the first night in your new place. Put them altogether in one box makes it super easy to find without having to unpack countless boxes before you find what you need.

Clothes

When you’re too busy thinking about what’s happening on moving day, you can easily forget about tomorrow and what you’re going to wear. Just pick out something that is clean and comfortable.

Electronics

Your mobile phone will need charging as will your other portable electronic devices. Make sure you pack these as well as a flashlight. We also suggest keeping an eye on the coffee machine to rev you up the next morning!

Toiletries

Your normal hygiene routine will apply so keep the following in your first night box

  • Toothbrush and toothpaste
  • Soap
  • Shampoo & conditioner
  • Shower curtain
  • Towels

Sleeping arrangements

We all plan to have our bed set up but time can get the better of us on moving day. Take a blow up mattress just in case. Don’t forget your air pump, blanket and pillow!

Food

Need we say more? After all that hard work moving, you’re going to be peckish. Takeaway will be the likely option for dinner so have some money and paper cutlery ready.
