For every home, whether you rent and apartment or own a house, there are a few accessories you will sometimes need that can make everyday tasks much easier. If you are a new home owner or have just moved out on your own, you will need to invest in a few household accessories you will frequently use for everyday tasks. If you want to stock your home with things that will help you complete tasks efficiently and safely, consider adding a few of these accessories to your home. Even if you don’t use them all the time, you will find that, when you need them, you are very glad you have them.

Essential Tools
If you don’t have a toolbox with a few basic tools in it, you should get one soon. You don’t have to spend a lot of money stocking it with every variation of every tool, but there will be many times that you need a few of these basics. Include two screwdrivers: one with a Phillips head and one with a flat head. There will be many times when you need one or both of these. You should also include a hammer, some nails, and a measuring tape. A pair of pliers is useful in many situations, such as when you need to safely remove a broken light bulb. Just don’t forget to disconnect the electricity first. Another good addition is an adjustable wrench. Instead of buying wrenches of multiple sizes, you can just buy one that allows you to narrow or widen it, which will work well for most household tasks.

Other Accessories
Another essential item for your home is a step ladder. Don’t risk injury by standing on chairs or countertops every time you need to hang a painting or change a light bulb. Step ladders also come in handy when you need to clear high shelves or reach things that have been stored in high cabinets. You might also consider investing in a larger ladder in case you need to perform outdoor tasks such as cleaning your gutters or even hanging holiday lights. If, like many people, you are at risk for lower back problems, hand trucks are incredibly helpful for every time you need to move a heavy item. Even if you just need to pull the refrigerator or washing machine away from the wall for reach an outlet, don’t risk hurting your back by trying to move it using only your own strength. A hand truck will make this task incredibly easy.

If this is your first home, you might find that there are many things you won’t realize you need until you actually need them. By stocking your garage or shed with these items, most tasks for household upkeep will be made very simple. You can save yourself multiple trips to a home improvement store every time something needs to be done by buying a few of these items when you move in. This way, you will be prepared for many common household repairs and situations.
