Apartments/homes

Hello all, What would be some money saving must-haves for someone who is moving into his/her first apartment/home by him/herself? Suggestions could range from pest control (spiders hate walnuts! invest in a big box fan to drown out your annoying roommate!) to home care (brand xyz makes the best toilet bowl cleaner! For soap scum, don't buy that, make your own by __ etc) to space saving ideas, as I am sure some of us have seen the b.s. that is called a "junior bedroom." I am just looking for general home necessities that may seem "duh" to you, but might have been completely overlooked by others (i.e. me). Thanks! EDIT: THANK YOU to everyone who put in 2 cents of insight. The response was unexpectedly overwhelming with ideas I hadn't thought about - you guys rock!
