We asked people living in Uruguay to list three things they wish they had brought and three they wish they had left behind. They responded...

"When moving to Uruguay, it is important to pack items that will help you adjust to the climate and culture. Bring clothing that is suitable for the warm, humid climate, such as light, breathable fabrics. It is also important to bring items that will help you adjust to the culture, such as books about the country's history and culture, and items that will help you learn the language. Additionally, it is important to bring any necessary documents, such as a passport, visa, and any other paperwork required for your move. Finally, it is important to bring any items that will make your new home feel like home, such as pictures, decorations, and items that remind you of home," said a member in Uruguay.

"The things that I really missed and thought about bringing later were good pots and pans and kitchen tools, large stainless steel garbage cans (which cost a fortune in Uruguay, yards of material for draperies, bedspreads and decorative pillows, Christmas decorations, and if building a house: door knobs and knobs or pulls for drawers and cabinets, bathroom fixtures (towel racks, mirrors, fixtures), picture hanging supplies, a safe that can be installed in concrete, and an office machine for faxing/copying/printing. The things that you do not need to bring include any leather goods which are in abundance, winter clothes, and anything related to the care and feeding of a dog or cat," remarked another expat who made the move to Punta del Este, Uruguay.
