You may not realise what it is you really can’t live without until it’s not there when you need it most. For most of us, there might be something you know you use every day, and consequently it might be top of your list when moving into a place of your own, for me that was a kettle. But then there was that other moment when I stood dripping after a shower and realised how am I supposed to dry my feet without a bathmat on a wet floor?
Some of you might live in shared accommodation – where you share kitchen and bathroom, so some of these things might be provided for you, but if you live in a studio apartment then you’ll need to think ahead.
So here is my list of the top things to buy and or take with you as an expat / exchange student:
1. KETTLE!! … boiling water in a pot is not fun
2. Bath Towel – (Depending on preference 1X Body & 1X Hair)
3. Bath Mat
4. Hand Towel
6. Shampoo & Conditioner
7. Toilet Paper
9. Dish Sponges
11. Cutting Board
12. Sizeable Cutting Knife
15. Can Opener
16. Bottle Opener
17. Pot (Included in start up pack)
18. Saucepan (Included in start up pack)
– Sandwhich Press
