Nothing beats the exhilaration of being fresh out of college. It's at this point that you feel as if the world's your oyster and you can work on having anything that you want. But first, you need a place to stay. Let's say that you already moved out of your college dorm room and have temporarily transferred your stuff into your parent's house. Once you get that call from the company where you applied a position in, you'd finally get to move out and become an individual joining the real world.
To get you started, here are the must-have items that you need to invest on in your new house:
Sleep is something that you need to prime yourself up for your first days at work, so the first thing that you need to buy is beddings. If you have a small studio-type apartment, a 3 by 6 mattress would do, and a bigger place may do with a 6 by 6 bed.
• Cooking Utensils
Although you can always go out for dinner or order pizza, you may want to invest in a few essential cooking utensils so you can save on your budget for food and plan your meals. Even if you live alone, investing in a few pieces of glassware, plates, cutleries and a small frying pan should be enough to get you started in the kitchen.
• Furniture Pieces
A couch, a dining table with chairs, a bed frame and maybe a cabinet to put your personal items in are some of the furniture pieces that you need in your new place.
• Electronic Appliances
You may already have accumulated a few electronics gadgets while you were in college. Now that you will be working, you'd need a TV, a media player, a sound system if you love listening to music, a coffeemaker, a microwave oven and a few other electronic/electrical appliances.
All the other items that you'd need in your new home will all depend on what your personal living needs are. What's important is to have these essentials at first - the rest, you can buy later on.
