The First Thing You Buy for A New Home?

We moved into a new apartment a month ago, and to tell you the truth, unpacking was easy this time around. I am slowly finding out that real organizing won’t be as easy. We have more space, and on a surface level, it seems there are too many options to put things…

 And now I can’t really decide on anything. A ridiculous problem to have, right?  I’m hoping to power through organizing this week, and actully get pictures hung in out hallway.

One of the first purchases I tend to make for a new apartment, is a shower curtain and new cleaning products. And in reality, there is a part of me that feels like if I really wanted to distract myself, it may be a good time to look at new table clothes and a linen sheet set.
But do I need them? I’m not sure.

What’s the first thing you buy for a new home?

    We just moved to a very small apartment–just this weekend! We got rid of SO MANY THINGS but I'm excited to buy new art. I love filling the house with things that we've had for years but a new piece of art work feels like a monument to this new chapter and I love that.

    Paint or a wall tapestry if painting is not allowed. It sets the tone for all else!
