By  | 


A sure sign you are an official adult is when you sign the dotted line for your very first apartment. Having your first apartment, whether you have a roommate or are flying solo, is a big accomplishment. You are finally on your own and have to pay bills, clean, do laundry and maybe even host your first dinner party.

Long gone are the days of a college dorm or your childhood room at your parents. While some of the apartments featured on sitcoms these days are total #apartmentgoals, at times they can be a bit unrealistic. There is no need to feel anxious about this new responsibility, though. Pat yourself on the back, pour yourself a glass of wine and get to online shopping to deck out your new digs. These 18 things will help you settle in nicely in your first apartment.

Whether you are brewing a one cup, four cup, or a 12 cup pot, having a coffee maker in your first apartment is a necessity and totally makes you a grown up. Just think, you can ask your first house guest if they want you to brew a pot of coffee.
