 We are agreeing to the counter offer and since we've been in an apartment so long, I really need some suggestions on what some things that are "must haves" to move in?

plunger, (I'm not kidding) basic tool set, garden hose, ladder, rake, shovel, broom to use on the porch if you have one, drawer liners, uninteresting stuff like that.

Must haves for the house like 2 car garage & washer/dryer hook ups or decor/cleaning supplies & etc?

 the counter offer is being put thru tomorrow, so the house and everything including the garage is there. just wondering about what are things you have to have. we've lived in an apartment for some time so this is new to me and i am feeling overwhelmed so need to brainstorm a list of things.

so far my list is a lawnmower, a retractable clothesline, and like the PP said, a plunger LOL we have one now but the house has 2 bathrooms so I didn't even think about getting duplicates of things like that

Hmm...not sure what you already have but...hangers, light bulbs, curtains, maybe paint?, a table cloth, new towels (both for the bathrooms & kitchen), scented stuff (plug ins, candles etc), spice rack, those things you hang over the door for towels or your robe...if I think of more I'll be back! :-)

 I would suggest smoke detectors and fire extinguisher.

Good luck with everything!

Yard bags (you'll need those to throw out major trast too when you move or do home inprovements) blinds for the windows, extension cords if you have DIY stuff to do.
