We understand that moving can be difficult, especially if you find yourself doing it constantly for work projects. Even when spending your extended stays in fully furnished apartments you still have to continually pack and unpack your personal belongings, and if you want your corporate apartment to have a personal touch you’ll have to unpack those items too! It can be stressful trying to figure out what items are necessities and what items can stay behind. We’ve come up with a list of 3 items to help you prepare (& hopefully simplify) for your extended stay in St Louis!

Seasonal Clothing – The weather in the Midwest is unpredictable. Your St Louis day can start off with perfect weather followed by a thunderstorm at lunch and end with a humid night. It’s important to pack appropriately for the weather, even if you’re temporary stay is scheduled for the summer, make sure you pack a jacket, sweater and a pair of jeans (just in case). It will save you time by preparing ahead of time for rainy weather.

Valuable Items – Packing a handful of personal items will assist in curing any homesickness, and you’ll be able to keep an eye on them while you’re away. Adding personal touches to your extended stay apartment doesn’t have to become or continue to be a hassle. With the addition of a few photos or trinkets, you’ll be able to pack quickly while still being able to feel at home on your temporary stay. 

A Camera – Too much work and no play will start to wear on anyone. You might not be paying attention to what’s going on in the city around you due to over working. Spend a day in Forest Park, visit the Gateway Arch, or check out some of the many free museums St Louis has to offer and don’t forget your camera! Take advantage of being able to spend time in a new city and document your trip to share with friends and family!
