Stuff List

Stuff list, updated from here.

Feel free to comment! :-)


I have a comforter (grays/blues) so I'll probably use that for a while until I find something else that I like better. I also have tons of blankets and stuff. My pillows are kind old so I might want to get new ones at some point. *shrug* Total Bedroom Cost: ~$600

  • Matress/Boxspring/Frame - $500

  • Night Table - I think I'm going to use my small bookshelf or I have a lamp table, too.

  • Bed-side Lamp - Got one from G&G, blue with flowers, may want new lampshade

  • Sheets/Comforter/Mattress Pad/Pillow Cases - Will need sheets. ($50)

  • Pillows - might want new, though ($20)

  • Alarm Clock

  • Hangers - if I need more... $1 for 10 @ WalMart

  • Fan(it is small, though)

  • Dresser of some sort - $100-200, looking at modular closet units


I have at least a kitchen table and chairs in the barn. I don't know if I will like the chairs. I am very tough on chairs (but not tough on grease). I also have a matching buffet cart and some other pieces, methinks. Total Kitchen Cost: ~$140

  • Kitchen Table/Chairs - Need to clean

  • Trashcan - From G&G

  • Dish towels

  • leftover dishes

  • 'fridge magnets

  • Salt & Pepper shakers - we have plenty to choose from!

  • Sponges - G&G

  • Bowls/Plates/Mugs/Glasses/Wine glasses/silver ware - Will wait for bowls, use disposable for now

  • Microwave - $25-75

  • Toaster Oven

  • Pots/Pans - Mom & Dad are buying me these as a b'day present

  • Bottle Opener/Can Opener/Ladle/Veggie Peeler/Spatulas - $10

  • Cutting Boards/Knives/Colandar - $30

  • Oven Mits/Pot Holders

  • Measuring Cups/Measuring Spoons/Mixing Bowls/Wooden Spoons? - $10

  • Hand Mixer


I have tons of towels. Will not need towels. Going with a Moon/Sun/Yellow theme. Total Bathroom Cost: ~$25

  • Rug and/or Mat - $10

  • Shower Curtain/Liner/Rings

  • Toilet Brush/Plunger - $15

  • Trash can

  • Towels

Living Room
Ahhh.. the living room. I have high hopes for the living room. I want to go with all black and white furniture and then some big splashes of color. Hard to describe, I think it will work, but will take some craigslisting. Thinking of getting a futon in addition to the couch. Hm. Total Living Room Cost: (max) $500 (this is furniture only and not tv, etc)

  • Couch - Ordered

  • 2 Chairs - total $40ish?

  • Coffee Table - G&G

  • Piano Keyboard

  • CD Storage

  • DVD/VHS Storage - using bookshelves after they are painted

  • Curtains/curtain rods/shades/etc - $???

  • Floor Lamps - $10

  • Sewing Lamp

  • Door Mats (inside/outside) - $30

  • TV Stand - $30 (craigslist)

  • TV/VCR/DVD player - for now, using my desktop computer. No VCR, though, but record capabilities!


This is going to be a kind of catch-all room. A desk in here and have all my bookshelves (omg, bookshelves). This room will probably be a HGTV nightmare. Maybe it will keep me from being in here all the time. Also, if I don't end up with a futon, I will try to get a guest bed for in here. Eventually. "Den" Cost: ~$200

  • Desk/Chair - $100 (craigslist)

  • Bookshelfs - from Uncle Ken

  • Day Bed - from Pop-pop's

  • Day bed mattress - $100?


These are more like reminders. And Cleaning stuff: $250

  • Cleaning Supplies/Broom/Dustpan/Swiffer/Vacuum - $200

  • Extension CordsSurge Protectors - $30

  • Drill/Hammer/Screwdriver/Level/Measuring Tape/Pliers/Wrench - $?? - From Dad/Martin?

  • Step Stool

  • Flashlights(one for every room!)

  • Trash Cans

Sheets: Check out Target. They have jersey-knit (t-shirt material) sheets for about $20 a set.

Cutting boards: Go for 2, plastic. Also, pick up a spray bottle and mix 1/2 teaspoon bleach to 16 oz. water to use as a sanitizer. It's good to spray down the kitchen counters from time to time, as well as the cutting boards. (Plus, the cutting boards should be able to fit in the dishwasher.)

I don't use a top sheet, and we have a Wamsutta outlet here that sells seconds, so I'll most definitely get just a bottom sheet there. Eww, jersey knit. I don't know how anyone can sleep on those. I'm pretty sure I over budgeted that item.. it'll probably be more like 15, but who knows?

Definitely plastic cutting boards! One for raw meat and one for everything else. YAY cutting boards! Any ideas as to good stores/websites to find quality kitchen stuff that doesn't cost an arm and a leg? (*cough*william-sanoma*cough*)

Thanks for the sanitizer recipe... I'll definitely be doing that!

PS, I was watching Alton Brown make Omelets tonight, and for the first time ever, I completely disagree with his technique. :-P

The cutting boards I currently own I picked up 2 large ones at a Farberware outlet store. I have 2 smaller ones that I snagged at Wegmans during a seasonal closeout sale.

Here's something similar at BB&B. Find yourself some shelf liner to set down below the cutting board to make those no-slip. Or even consider something like these, already pre-labeled for you.

Correction: I like these cutting boards more. No slip grips built in.

Nifty! Thanks for the links. :)

Wow, with all this planning, you'd better have one helluvan apartment when you're done! :)

I just said 'eh, grab everything I've got throw it in a van and let's go' about... one week before I moved. :-p

I could never live your unplanned life!

haha. Could you imagine not even *being there* when your stuff got packed up?? I still don't know how I did that and stayed sane.

Though, on the other hand I had pretty much everything I needed so I didn't have as much to think about.
