A Zip It for clogged drains.

Keeping it clean will avoid a future clogged bathrub drain.

A hammer, flathead screwdriver, phillips head screwdriver, adjustable wrench, pliers, measuring tape, set of allen wrenches, utility knife, super glue, and a flashlight.

A ladder!

If you have a yard, you’ll also need a lawn mower and weed eater.

We found that we were really unprepared in the yardwork-tools category: lawn mower, shovel, rake, snow shovel, sprinklers/hoses, etc.

A cordless power drill.  I can’t tell you how often I use that thing.

new locks on the doors, gardening equipment and power tools if you don’t already have them.  Congrats on the new place!

a step-ladder, especially if you’re short like me! we registered for one and one of my cousins (who is also a shortie) gave it for me for my bridal shower. everyone thought it was kind of funny (i guess they thought it was an odd gift?), but we use it all the time!


rugs- we’re still lacking in this area, but it really helps keep the flooring in high traffic areas clean and they’re good to have in the kitchen to catch spills/splashes.

Step Ladder for inside… Extension Ladder for outside.

Shop vac, and a Push Broom… if you have a Garage these two are a blessing.

Mats… one for outside each of your Entrances (cocoa, rubber etc) and then carpet type floor mats for inside… they work wonders at keeping the mud, dirt, grit under control and from getting tracked into the house and ruining your flooring.

Hope this helps,

@Meant2Bee:  Related to what you’re thinking, we actually bought and installed keypad deadbolts when we moved in.  🙂  That way, we can still get in with our pin # without keys at all.  You can even set up temporary pin #s if you’re going away and have someone come watch your pets or something.  No need for key copies 🙂
