February 10th, 2015

We have compiled a list of some of the necessities you will need during the first week of living in your new home; you will find that the bare essentials are missing from your new home: paper towels, toilet paper, food, etc. In order to avoid this, we have come up with a list of items you should purchase before the move, pack them into boxes and load them into your own car. That way they will be easily accessible when you move into your new home.
