WHAT TO BUY FIRST FOR MY EMPTY NEW RENTAL? + FREE PRINTABLE

what to buy first

As I told you here, we don’t own any furniture or appliances. Thus, because we are moving to an empty rental for the first time in our adult lives, we need to buy some stuff.
So… what should we buy first for our empty new rental? What things do we absolutely need and what others can wait? Do we really need a couch in the first week of moving in? Maybe not… Do we really need a mattress and bed linen? Yeah… probably we do.
