The moving out essentials every graduate needs

Hurray! If you’re reading this then like me you’re graduating in a couple months and off out into the big wide world. It’s so exciting yet scary at the same time. There is so much still to do and moving out is top of the list.

It’s times like these when you realise just how much stuff you do and don’t have. As well as how much it all costs. Take advantage of still being a student and a UNiDAYS member. Get shopping for all the essentials you need to give you #flatgoals.

Kit out the kitchen

The chances are, if you shared a flat with friends at university you won’t all own a toaster and a kettle as well as everything else you need. Bag everything you need from Robert Dyas from pans to knife sets with 10% off! Don’t forget to buy a pizza cutter - trust me you’ll need it sooner or later.

Once you have the basics you can start to add your own flair and personality with quirky bits from cute brands like Ohh Deer and Paperchase. I love this 'mean without caffeine’ slogan mug from Paperchase.

IWOOT is another great brand for picking up the kitchen bits and bobs. Although known for the quirky gifts and pretty homeware, they also have practical things like this set of chopping boards.

Home comforts

No flat is complete without a nice big, comfy bed with lots of pillows and throws. Urban Outfitters is perfect for this and has bedding in all colours and sizes. With 10% off you can stock up so you always have something different to sleep in.

I for one love pillows and cushions, especially from New Look’s home section. They always have such a wide selection.

Now TV and Chill

Unless you are super lucky to have a huge satellite package your TV down time is going to be quite boring when you move out. Now TV is a subscription service that lets you watch all your favourite shows. I know it’s not an essential but who doesn’t love a bit of Britains Got Talent or First Dates?

With your UNiDAYS membership you can get a 14 day free trial for Now TV AND a £15 Topshop voucher when you make your first month’s payment after the trial! I am definitely up for a free voucher!

You can find me over on the blog Just Emmi as well as on Twitter and Instagram.
