Wrenches and ratchets may be necessary for your new home.

Wrenches and ratchets may be necessary for your new home.

If you are moving from an apartment to a house, it is possible that while you have packed all of your items and given them to your moving company, there could be other things needed for the home. Acquiring these necessities could take a bit out of your moving budget, but will be very important to have near you.

Every home should have a plunger for every toilet in the house. If you do not have one, or the one from your old apartment is in bad shape, it is necessary to get these. Plungers are for more than just toilets, as they can be quite effective unclogging sinks, as well.

A toolbox with various small tools can also be a huge help, especially if you need to do work on the home, or you just need to fasten, tighten or loosen something. This would include a Phillips head screwdriver, as well as a flat-head type. In addition, ratchet and wrench sets will make fixing items quickly much easier.

Tools that are necessary for the home also include hammers, as this could be important for hanging items or keeping floorboards intact. Power drills are also useful for similar reasons. Regardless of which you choose, make sure that you have plenty of nails and screws stored in the toolbox for when the time comes.

Further, it is important to have flashlights on each floor of the house. These can be invaluable during a power outage, and also can be used if you are going into the yard at night. If there is an area in or around your home without proper lighting, these are great things to have. In addition, having candles will make a power outage much easier. These are relatively inexpensive, and as long as you have lighters or matches around, you will be able to brighten the home.
