The Moving Trend Taking Social Media By Storm
By Ellis Ranger
We understand moving is extremely stressful, and there is nothing more annoying than spending your first night in your new property without all the essentials to survive. Whether it be your toothbrush or a stray toilet roll, having to dive into every box just to find specific items can be a huge annoyance.
But there’s a moving trend that at least 100,000 people know about, if not more. And it’s an idea that our team at CBS Removals recommend too. It’s the First Night Box.
Living in a box, living in a cardboard box
So what exactly is the First Night Box? Well, it’s exactly what it says on the tin. It is a box that contains all of the necessities to ensure a comfortable first night or two in your new property whilst the major unpacking takes place. This year, with TikTok exploding as much as it has, the idea for the box comes from user @restyleliving, who attracted a lot of interactions with a video centred around this moving trend. While the idea seems extremely basic, it’s actually sensible and it’s also surprising how many people seemed to like the idea. One user replied saying: “This is an amazing idea, but I just know I will forget to do thus and be sobbing on the kitchen floor because I can’t find the spoons.”
What should you pack?
The viral TikTok video suggests the following:
- Shower curtain
- Cleaning supplies
- First aid kit
- Paper towels
- Toilet paper
But everyone is different and what you include in a First Night Box depends on where you’re moving to, whether you’re moving a family and so on. You can customise it to suit your needs. But it’s worth including other items such as:
- Toothbrush and toothpaste
- Phone charger
- Pens and pencils
- Important documents
Everyone’s move is specific to them with no two peoples homes being the exact same. And as part of our packing services, we can put together your First Night Box and even load it onto our vans last so it’s easy to find at the other end.
