Tell Us What Anyone Moving To Their First Apartment Should Buy

We want to know!

What's the best or most useful thing (or things!) that you got for your first apartment?

Or rental house, or where ever you lived when you left your parent's home and/or the dorms.

Maybe it was a set of pots and pans that are great for cooking everything from basic ramen to scrambled eggs to ~fancy~ vegetable stew.

This set's at Target for $44.49.

Or a basic tool kit that you still use today to tighten screws and hang art in your home.

Get one from Amazon for $44.99.

Maybe it was a kitchen gadget, like an immersion blender, that helped you make cheap and easy meals.,

Or maybe it wasn't even that fancy, and you loved your basic Crockpot!

Get the recipe for Slow Cooker Butternut Squash Soup on SkinnyTaste, and the blender on Amazon for $47.99.

Or a cleaning product, like bulk melamine sponges, that made cleaning up after yourself a little easier.

Yup, melamine sponges = generic magic erasers; some reviewers love 'em, others don't think they compare. Get a set of 20 on Amazon for $10.95.

Or something that helped you get organized, like an over-door shoe organizer for your pantry.,

From Pretty Providence. Get the grey shoe organizer on Amazon for $7.87.

Or a piece of furniture that was useful for years and years, like a foldable table you could pull out for beer pong in your 20s and dinner parties in your 30s.

Get it on Amazon for $64.86.

Or something else entirely!
