Moving into your first apartment is exciting until you realize all of the items you need to buy. It may seem like your first-apartment checklist never ends. Despite what you thought growing up, your new apartment doesn't come furnished with couches, helpful kitchen appliances, and that little junk draw that contains knickknacks capable of solving all your problems.It's the same with the kitchen.

You'll quickly learn that you'll need more spoons than you can count and one frying pan won't suffice. These kitchen essentials can quickly clog your credit card bill, and money is tight as it is.
