Tips& Tricks on Unpacking
Start with the essentials
What do you need to live, sleep and eat? Unpack these things first and set them up in your new home. First of all, you need to unpack your bedding. Unless you plan on sleeping on the floor, you will need to set up your mattress and make sure you have sheets, pillows and blankets. You should also set up any furniture you need for sleeping, such as a nightstand or dresser.
Next, you should take care of the kitchen. Unpack the dishes and cooking utensils you need to eat and cook. If you have perishable food, you should put it in the fridge or freezer as soon as possible. And of course, do not forget the coffee maker!
Also, take care of any other items you need for daily living. Put your clothes in a dresser or closet. Unpack toiletries and put them in the bathroom. And if you have electronic devices like TV or a computer, put them in the closet.
Work room by room
When you’re unpacking after a move, it’s best to take it one room at a time. Otherwise, it can be overwhelming and you might not get everything done. Plus, if you try to do everything at once, you might miss something important. So start with one room and unpack that completely before moving on to the next one. That way, you can be sure that everything gets put away in its proper place. And once everything is unpacked, you can finally relax and enjoy your new home.
Be organized as you unpack
Have a plan for where everything is going to go and put it away in its designated spot as soon as you unpack it. This will save you a lot of time and headache later on.
Don’t forget about the little things
Once you’ve got the big pieces of furniture in place, take a look around and see what else needs to be unpacked and put away. Things like towels, dishes, and small appliances can often be overlooked but they’re important too!
Set aside time each day to work on unpacking
It can be tempting to just leave everything until the weekend, but that’s usually when things start to pile up and feel overwhelming again. Dedicate an hour or two each day to unpacking until everything is done. “Putting it off” rarely ends up being a better option.
Put things in their place as you unpack them
A lot of people like to get all the furniture where it’s going and then start working on organizing everything, but this can be a huge waste of time and energy. Put things away as you take them out of the boxes and things will almost always feel a lot more organized.
Take care with your belongings
Be careful of your belongings when unpacking so that nothing gets broken or damaged (or accidentally thrown in the trash!). You should definitely proceed carefully, as most items are packed very tightly and moving too quickly could result in damage or loss, but you should also not spend all your time moving very slowly.
Moving is a huge task. It can feel overwhelming to try and unpack everything efficiently and neatly- but it doesn’t have to be that way. With some planning and organization, you can take care of your belongings and get settled into your new home in no time.
