Top 12 Things to Pack Last

It's time to pack up your rental apartment and move to your new Edmonton home. Here's a helpful list of 12 items to pack last and keep handy (a.k.a. they're the things you'll need to get to first and frequently)

  1. Extension cords, batteries, everything's electric these days it seems. Computers, CD players, smart phone, all those little gizmos you just can't seem to live without. So it just makes sense to keep that extension cord or pack of new batteries right on top within reach.Packing boxes to move into your new Edmonton home image
  2. Tools. We're talking hammers and screwdrivers, nails & screws, scotch tape, duct tape and especially a tape measure. A good multi tool wouldn't hurt, either. Will be handy for assemling those beds.
  3. Dehydration is a sneaky beast, so be prepared. A bottle opener and glasses. Thirst always seems to come first, particularly if you have to lug that stuff around. Make sure you have enough for your moving crew, too! (great way to "brib" them as they are moving your stuff).
  4. Snack, pizza or fast food coupons. You're going to work up a hunger so think about treating yourself to a quick bite or a night out to your favourite fast food joint. Again, make sure you have enough food for the moving crew/friends!
  5. Address book or important contacts on your smartphone. Keep those important telephone numbers handy.
  6. Cell phone or regular landline telephone to plug in - put these within easy reach. There's is always potential for an emergency call.
  7. Sufficient cash. If you are opening a new bank account, you may have to wait for your first check to clear. Traveller's checks wouldn't hurt, either. Usually your debit card would work.

  8. Copy of your lease & personal ID such as driver's license. Speaking of banking, if you are starting a new checking account (or applying for utilities service), you'll need proof of your new address. Ask your bank if they would accepted your purchase contract.
  9. Cleaning materials. Paper towels, broom & dustpan, mop, bucket, garbage bags, etc. Accidents do happen. Oh yes, don't forget some toilet paper, soap & hand towel.
  10. Extra light bulbs as you may have some burnt out bulbs, a small lamp (perhaps a flashlight). It may be dark when you move in.
  11. Alarm clock. You don't want to miss your first day of work, do you? Nowadays, your smartphone will be a great substitute.
  12. Box cutter. Don't pack that tool as it's the first thing you need to open your boxes.
