So I'm moving into an apartment with my S/O in a week. This is not my first place away from home, but it is the first one I'll be moving to without roommates to rely on for stuff to borrow or the general "college" feel. I'm looking to make this into an actual home for us. Unfortunately, this IS my S/O's first real place on his own and he's not much help in figuring out all of the little finicky stuff we'll need that I'm probably forgetting! I'd like to start poking around online to find deals and steals so TELL me TQC! What items to you think are essential (or completely non-essential and just plain awesome) for a new "home"? Give me as few or as many as you can think of: your favorite items, things YOU forgot, stuff that makes living in a new place just a little more bearable. Links or ideas of where to pick up unique things are much appreciated.
Minor things about us to help with awesome list-making: We are likely bringing along my cat unless my mom can't bear to part with him, we're both technology geeks, we're on a budget but willing to splurge for things that are extra special, and we're both going to be young professionals and/or students while we're living there. We also have a dishwasher, laundry facilities, a garage and some outdoor space including a patio.
DK/DC (but I can still use this to help me, bwahaha)? What item that you own could you not possibly live without? Bonus points if you pick something that isn't a computer/car/TV/etc.
