For the last few months we've been prepping to move our oldest into his first apartment at college. Being the OCD freak that I am, I had to create a list of anything and everything we might need to find/borrow/purchase to stock the apartment. The list allowed us to cross things off as we acquired them and gave us a way to double check that we had everything packed and loaded for the two and a half hour trip.
I thought I would share our list with you here, internet. It will also keep me from misplacing the list or forgetting where I filed it when it's time to move our second child. Keep in mind, this list was created for a guy that will probably do minimal cooking and little to no decorating. If you're moving a girl, you might need to add a few (or a few hundred) things to the list, but this will give you a good basic start.
