10 Must-Haves For Your First Post-Grad Apartment

Your first post-grad apartment is kind of a big deal. And by kind of, I mean absolute and total. We’re big kids now and we have to make sure our apartments have all the must-haves. You probably already have the dishes, bed sheets, and towels crossed off the list. We’ve got 10 more things you need to have in your first post-grad apartment.

Popcorn Maker

Everyone has a friend that just inhales popcorn. Me. I am that friend. For the movie nights, Netflix binges, or midnight munchies, a popcorn maker in your post-grad apartment is a must. It’s a fun and quick snack that’s a total crowd favorite. Especially if your guest is me.

Coffee table books can really tie your post-grad apartment together. Stacks of books with interesting titles or pretty covers can really make a place feel homey.

Clothes Steamer/Iron

I cannot tell you the amount of times I’ve had to change an outfit last minute because I found the top buried in a drawer. Learn from my mistakes and buy an iron or clothes steamer! You’ll be so surprised by how often you’ll use it. Especially before those big interviews and meetings!

Waffle Maker

It’s time to ditch the frozen waffles. Making fresh waffles is so much easier (and tastier!) than any kind you can buy in the freezer section. Having a waffle maker in your post-grad apartment makes you seem so adult and so together. It’ll be perfect for hosting Sunday brunch or nursing Saturday hangovers.

Flocked Hangers

This is a post-grad apartment; we’re not in a dingy dorm room anymore. It’s time to ditch plastic hangers. Having flocked hangers is a game changer. They’ll keep your clothes from slipping and make your closet look totally sophisticated! Your friends will be so impressed whenever they borrow a top!
