Can you name fifty mammals off the top of your head? Exactly, you’re in over your head. Since this isn’t something you can wing I created several checklists. Unlike other websites here on First Apartment Guide we’ve given you a couple options: You can either create and print checklists uniquely tailored to you, or if you’d like you could go paperless and use the first apartment checklist tool featured on this page.

If there’s one aspect of moving out you really don’t want to wing its the kitchen. *Buh-dum-dum-tsch* ... I will see myself out.
Without all of these items your apartment setup just is not going to be very practical or safe. If you don't get this checklist completed you're in for some trouble.

Wait a minute, hold up. What can you actually afford to spend? Now, do not just come up with a number and leave it at that. Use this rent calculator to find out for sure.

To make this work you need to lay down the law. Make sure you and everyone you’re living with knows how things are going to work.
You never know what it will be like living with someone until you actually do it.
