Here’s a guide to help you decide what to put in each 4 boxes.
In the first box, pack essentials such as toiletries, nightwear and clothing. You’ll need toothbrushes, toothpaste and other essential toiletries, as well as a first aid kit and any medications. Also pack some pyjamas, underwear and enough clothes for a day or two.
Bedding is another essential for the first night, as well as some bath towels and perhaps a bath mat.
You probably won’t want to cook a full meal on your first night, but that doesn’t mean you won’t need some essential items. In the second box, pack a few snacks, some bread, milk and canned goods.
Include also, a kettle and a set of utensils and plates for everyone in the household, a can opener and a bottle opener. Don’t forget those other handy items like washing up liquid, sponges, rubbish bags and surface cleaner. And the most essential item? A bottle of fizz to celebrate.
