Including personal hygiene and cleaning items, make a grocery list of food items things you feel comfortable preparing for the first week or so. Below is a general guide for your first grocery trip in Littleton:
- Personal Hygiene products
- Shampoo and conditioner
- Hand soap,
- toothpaste, toothbrush,
- body soap,
- One week of breakfast
- One week of lunch
- One week of dinner
- Cleaning products
The center doesn’t provide cleaning products for your apartment. However, cleaning products are often left behind by previous students. These are typically found under kitchen or bathroom sinks.
We suggest toilet bowl cleaners, all-purpose cleaning spray Dish soap, dishwasher soap, Clorox and/or Clorox wipes, and whatever you prefer to clean floors with.
Each apartment has a dustpan and hand broom, vacuum cleaner, and a Swiffer mop. You will need to provide new cleaning pads for the Swiffer mop, so you may want to add those to your grocery list. You will need to provide your own trash bags, paper towels, aluminum foil,, Ziploc bags, food storage containers, laundry soap, and toilet paper
We will provide a ride to a grocery store after you arrive. You will work on routes to grocery stores in your first week, and you will find that other students will be happy to take you along on their grocery trips as well. You can also use any online platform such as Instacart, Walmart, Amazon fresh, and King Soopers to have groceries delivered.
