Moving Day Tip #3: Pack a clear “First Day Essentials” bin filled with the things you’ll need most as soon as you arrive at your new home. As an example, I filled this bin with trash bags, box cutters, scissors, disinfectant wipes, paper towels, toilet paper, paper plates, paper cups, disposable silverware, hand soap and dish soap. Even Keurig and K cups in here for coffee the first morning. Make sure to place this bin in the car so there is no chance of it getting lost amongst the boxes.
