My SO and I are giving cohabitation a lengthy and gradual trial period. What do I need to know?

My SO and I and gradually working toward living together. This will be a big change for me as it's my first time living with an SO. He is wonderfully patient and we've agreed that the transition can be as gradual as I want since I'm moving into his place. When we're both in town, I already sleep over there 3-4 times a week so while living together will be different, sharing domicile space isn't brand new. For a starting metric, right now I keep a toothbrush at his place.
has great general advice but I'm hoping for anecdota relevant to how gradual this will be.
What are you glad you found out/do you wish you found out in your early cohabitation days? Is there anything I should try out when I still have my house to retreat to (I don't even know what kinds of things those would be...)? How did you navigate having two houses as an adult- where to keep what, etc?
