I'm having a difficult time figuring out what to bring to my new apartment that I'll be living for 2-3 yrs. I figure I would extract TTU's knowledge on the subject if permissible. The apartment is unfurnished so I'll be buying some furniture when I get there. Here is my current list, please let me know if you see anything missing:

Kitchenware
Art & Literature goodies
Clothes & shoes
Tennis junk
Pillows and blankey

I can't for the life of me figure anything else to add into this list, but as they say, "Less is best." Please help~~~ :confused:

I think if you reckon you’ll be there 2 or 3 years, think of it as a permanent move. To that end, I suggest you make a list of everything you do own and strike off items you don’t need. I assume you will be renting a cargo van for the move? In any event, I would recommend that you check out IKEA for stuff you’re going to buy – just a marvel of inexpensive solid items of all sizes for a new home. If you are in fact renting a cargo van, do allow for a trip to IKEA in your rental schedule.

The vehicle in question will be a solidly built '02 Mustang that has traveled well over 40+ states. Cargo room is only moderate. Also, it's funny you say for me to make a list of everything I own because I don't really own much, to be honest. Maybe less is best after all.

Cargo space is the limiting factor then? Another reason to make an exhaustive list of potential items and work your way back by elimination. Mustangs are fun to drive, but no fun to maintain, as I can imagine. I rented one in Puerto Rico once, it felt good on those treacherous serpentine roads.

P.S. Don't forget to bring real clothes.

Well, for the one-way trip up, cargo space will be limited; however, once I have arrived, I will gain access to a trustworthy Ford Ranger to carry anything I wish--provided the items are space-conscious enough for the mini trucker. Maintenance has been a non-issue as evidenced by my 8 yrs personal experience with the machine. Still in love with the mistress, yes, yes.

Real clothes will be "brung," though I worry a bit about how cold it's going to be. No matter, I'll just have to purchase necessary remnants as I see fit.

Well, if you’re worried about the winter, I can recommend a place in the city where you can purchase quality fur. Glad to hear that your new home comes with two parking spaces – you can use the Ford Ranger for heavy-duty tasks and traveling with a group, and save the Mustang for everyday getting around or when you just scoot out to the beach in the midst of a hot summer day.

when i had to fill out my first flat, i went to ikea and there was all kinds of stuff i never knew i needed but decided i couldnt do without. Recommend it.

Apart from that make sure you got things to do when you are bored (read, TV, laptop, music etc), and i think you are well on the way to being happy.

I think you will be just fine. Don't worry. You are ready for moving.

Ah, I missed that. Thank you, sir.

Will definitely drop by IKEA for the furniture.

That's a no brainer, of course.

It's the 21st century, who doesn't have a stripper pole installed in their homes?

These days, the only thing you really need to bring is a smartphone. Everything else happens from there.

You will need to decide "Krups or Keurig?"

Yeah, I didn't see much in the way of entertainment. How will you post here if you don't bring your computer?! As someone else mentioned, maybe just a smartphone is enough for you. You can buy a television and a small stereo once you arrive I suppose?

Maybe several books for travel.

I've decided this is totally unworthy of an argument.

Good move. Too bad the thread is ruined at this point.

I wanted to talk about those blue IKEA napkins that leave marks on the dining table, but now I am turned off.

Sobad, you posted a quote in your post and yet that post/quote was removed?....wonder what that was all about?...

Apparently, the forum administration supported Meg’s final position as regards the worthiness of the argument that ensued. It is unfortunate that the napkin discussion is gone though – I thought that one had potential. Oh well, you know what they say – when you chop wood in the forest, chips go a-flying.

Dear Mr. Penthouse,

It has come to our attention that you recently complained about a quote that was removed from the post of [full name] Arnold P SoBad.

Please understand, the bureau deals with a high volume of information. Censorship is not a science. In fact -- please keep this under your hat -- science is not a science. Basically we're just guessing. But until you've had to deal with pulverized bodies and smoldering cities, we'd appreciate your support.

Thanks.

Me too Teeny-weenie :- ) as I like RD7's overall clever creativity.

But in 'moi's' defense, it wasn't a complaint so much as it was an honest inquiry?....(and ok, yes, maybe I was trying to stir it up a tad...)
