    everyone needs a clock.

    Tin opener... cleaning stuff... towels...

    Phone, do you have a landline where your moving too, or does this need to be installed?

    tv liscence
    contents insurance (if your renting)
    internet?

    ok so these aren't things as such, but they are alot easier to sort out before you move

    tv & playstation, radio, laptop, anything to keep you amused really

    toilet rolls. old blankets that could be used as curtains if req.

    A spare key! :-D

    torch (power cuts)
    Spare lightbulbs (various wattages)
    basic tool set (x head and slot head screwdrivers, hammer, pliers, and drill)
    scissors
    iron and ironing board
    loo paper (seems obvious, but it IS a necessity!)
    basic toiletries (toothpaste, soap, shower get, shampoo)
    it all else fails - bottle opener/corkscrew

    light bulbs

    Fire alarm or 2,possibly the local fire brigade may install some for free aswell as free alarms they do run these freebies so worth calling up.
    If there a gas supply then its best to have a carbon monoxide detector too.Gas rises so you need it placed fairly high up.
    Candles come in handy incase elec is off.
    I'm sure I'll think of something else but a lot of essentials as been mentioned above.

    thanks

    A male slave to do all the odd jobs for you, while you put your feet up with a hot chocolate and a magazine! (Well my OH seem's to think she needs one of those anyway)

    House insurance, and dont skimp on it....when stuff like the recent floods this summer happen, you really appreciate it. Make sure you get legal cover, this will come in handy if you lose your job (take your company to tribunal)

    The only 3 things that are totally necessary are a bed, a beer fridge and a TV with Sky Sports. Apparently.:whistling:

    How rude

    a clothes airer will come in handy

    a calendar is handy too

    Toilet rolls and kitchen roll.

    My other half keeps on forgetting to buy the toilet roll

    not really a purchase but make sure you get a load of menus from your local takeaways x x x

    Beer fridge for sure and get about 7 extra keys cut as you'll be sure to forget to take them out when you first move in!

    clothes horse is a good idea if you don't have a dryer.
    definitely bring your george foreman too, is there anythin that thing can't do

    Microwave :thumbsup:

    hoover, broom, dustpan and brush, floor-mop and bucket

    ^^^^ that stuff is boring :P, you need to get your priorities straight, get your tv, game consoles, massage chair and mini fridge in first

    even though the room is a bit wiffy with the smell from the kitchen floor and the living room carpet crunches underfoot, you sit down to watch your tv only to find that the mice all the crumbs have attracted have chewed through the cables of your telly.

    Your console has overheated due to all the dust blocking the ventilation vents, you don't have any clean glasses for your beer and you've run out of beer anyway as the glass door of the mini fridge was so dirty you didn't see the beer had run out....

    Still at least you have your massage chair but this is the nearest thing to a woman you're ever likely to see with your house in that state.
