Title says most of it. In 10 months or so I will be moving out of my parent's place to Quebec city to study at Laval. Where I need your help is that I like to plan and prepare things in advance. For most of the kitchen stuff I have a pretty good idea of what I already have and need, I think. The other stuff not so much, any help would be appreciated. The idea is that I want to buy as much as possible before moving, check the sales and deals and once the move comes have most of the stuff except bigger appliances and furniture (I have a feeling I will build a lot of IKEA furniture once I move). So there's that, and also I'd like it if some of you could point me in the right direction to get some good knives (chef and a smaller one actually, santoku'ish) that aren't too expensive. Any help and tips is welcome. I'll probably have roommate(s) but maybe not, some variables are unknown at this point.
