Moving house essentials for the day of the move.

Moving house is exciting but stressful. One the day of the move, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed.

It’s often easy to think you’ll get things unpacked quicker than you actually do. Before you know it, it’s 7 pm, you’re exhausted and there are boxes everywhere. One simple thing that can make it easier is to have a box of essentials that have those things that can get you through the first night.

Moving house essentials for the day of the move.

Here’s what was in my box of essential items:

A bottle of champagne.

When you have moved house, there’s nothing better than sitting amongst the boxes with a glass of bubbles to toast your new home.

Coffee, a kettle and cups.

Cups of tea and coffee are vital for a smooth transition. Imagine fancying a cuppa and not being able to find where anything is? Make sure you include a teaspoon.

Phone charger.

The fear of losing battery is real. The last thing you want is to be searching for a charger before you go to bed.

Washing up liquid and a cloth.

I think I spent most of the first day in my house making drinks and washing up cups. Much needed.

Kitchen towel and toilet roll. 

Essential items for quick cleanups and when you’re busting for the loo!

A doormat.

You’ll be traipsing in and out while moving, so make sure you look after your carpet but putting down a mat as soon as you get your new house!


Handwash, toothbrush, toothpaste, moisturiser – anything to help your first night in your new bed go smoothly. Any items that you need to get ready for bed need to be in your essentials box!

PJs and comfy clothes.

Again, more things to help you relax on the first night in your home!

Having these essentials to hand means you won’t be looking through lots of boxes trying to find what you need.

What would be in your box?

1. noun: a female blogger that writes about her own experiences, observations and opinions. 2. verb: to act like a complete idiot or to do something stupid. e.g: She did a Corinne.
