Whether you’ve found your new apartment already, signed the dotted line, and dropped some cash on the security deposit or are getting all your ducks in a row prior to apartment hunting we’ve got the checklists you need to make your first apartment a home.

We’ve created these printer-friendly apartment checklists because there’s more to making an apartment livable than a few furnishings and couple odds and ends. By our calculations there are 101 items required to make your pad a home.

Do not feel like you need mark-off every single item on your checklists to be ready to move into your first apartment, but rather do what you think is necessary for your lifestyle to get by. You can always add what you feel as optional after you move in and when you can afford the luxury.
