Printable Version

Stocking your first living space can seem like an overwhelming task, but it doesn't have to be.  Use this 5 "S"  Space Strategy to help you organize the items you will need to furnish your new living environment.

 Before making any purchases, create a list of what furnishings you will need for the below 5 action areas:

    Where you Sleep
    Where you Sit / Socialize (leisure time)
    Where you Snack
    Where you Study (work or hobby area)
    How you will Sanitize

 

Let's break these down even further into a general suggested item list of what can fit in these areas. (This list may not included everything for your specific needs, so add or subtract as needed)

    Pillow & Bedding (blankets, comforter, sheets)
