Not really aibu but posting for traffic.

He's moving Friday, we've bought the below (unexpected tax rebate so he's very lucky).

What have we forgotten? Or what was invaluable to you when you first moved, I can't remember it was so long ago!

Fridge freezer
Knives and forks
Tin opener
Bedding & duvet set
Tea towels
First freezer shop - to be done
Wardrobe is built in
Kitchen starter set as in fish slice etc

Cash for a takeaway for the first night you move as you are too tired to cook smile

He's a tradesman he's got more tools than me.

Forgot to add glasses etc his mum has got those

Cash for a takeaway is a good call grin

Is he going to be bring his laundry home because there's no mention of washing machine, iron or ironing board.

If he’s a tradesman, why are you organising all of this 🤣

Please tell me he’s not 30 🤣😂

Presumably someone has thought of toilet paper, but he might need help wiping his backside 🤣

Not being mean really, but if he’s already a tradesman he can organise what he needs surely?!

...mind you, you wouldn’t want to stall one ready to fly the nest!!

itsbritneybiatches Tue 26-Feb-19 19:56:39

Thank you these are great
Keep em coming let's spend that tax rebate lol 😂

IncrediblySadToo Tue 26-Feb-19 19:57:51

It’s ok. You can put the balance in my account and I’ll look after it for you. I’m good like that.

itsbritneybiatches Tue 26-Feb-19 19:59:15

He's 21.

I want to make sure he's set up then he won't come back. wink

Am kidding.

I want him to feel great and sorted when he spends his first night on his actual own as a man.

Washing - I will do until he gets his next pay then he wants to buy his own.

Eliza9917 Tue 26-Feb-19 20:00:41

How old is he?

brew0andbiscuits Tue 26-Feb-19 20:01:52

Do you have plates/bowls etc OP? Couldn't see them on your list or does he already have these? Vacuum cleaner and some basic cleaning stuff too!

itsbritneybiatches Tue 26-Feb-19 20:02:04


He's so mature in some ways but he's still a big kid in others.

We're setting him up. He's a good kid/man.

Grown up a lot on the 12 months he's lived with us. His mum mothered him soo much - as she would he's an only child for his mum.

I'm so proud of what he's achieved in a year
