Putting together a grown-up apartment

After subletting in others' apartments for many years, I just moved into my first place on my own. It's a one-bedroom. What do I need to buy?

Just moved into what we might as well call my first ever apartment... I guess I'm all grown up.
I have always lived with roommates who already had plenty of "stuff" -- furniture, utensils, pots and pans, kitchen appliances, and so on. Have only been in the new place for two days but it seems every hour I think of something new that I need to buy.
Of course, it's good to have some things, like a toilet plunger, BEFORE you realize in the moment that you need it. So what are things that I need to buy for my apartment -- particularly if it's something that perhaps I'm not thinking of?
(I don't have unlimited money, so focusing on necessities.)
A link to a website that has a good list of such stuff is just as helpful as "No one's mentioned ____ yet, but you really need one!"
