@ForeverBirds: Hit up the local dollar store and pick up necessities as you need them. You will be surprised what stuff you really need and what stuff you can live without. As you have more money to spend on things you can replace the cheap stuff with nicer stuff. It’s normal to start out with very little but I promise you will accumulate stuff fast.

The first time I moved out of my parents’ home, I was 18. I had practically nothing. The first year, I slept on the floor with a blanket and pillow. I got pots/pans, plates, etc. from Goodwill. I bought A LOT of stuff from Goodwill. It’s not easy, but it’s feasible. Look on Craig’s List, too. When I made a major move a few years ago, I was GIVING AWAY stuff just so I wouldn’t have to deal with it. I’m sure there are plenty of free/super cheap stuff available.

Thank you for all of your help and advice bees! I’m closing this thread because this one has served its purpose. I feel more confident and sure that we can make this happen. I’ve made my list, and now we’re trying to figure out what is essential and what is not. I’ve started another thread for that here:
Buying the basics for first place- help!!
Again, thank you so much bees! I’m so glad I found this forum- all of you are so helpful and encouraging!
