How to Unpack Effectively
You finally did it, you are all moved in to your new home after a long day of packing boxes, labeling them, and transporting them. The hard work is far from over because now, it’s time to unpack. At this point you are probably stressed and overtired from all the work that has led up to this moment and you just want to quickly unpack so that you can get settled in your new home. The Houston movers from All My Sons Moving & Storage share with you the best tips for how to unpack effectively. The quicker you unpack and get settled in, the more your new house will start to feel like home.
Make sure that you create checklists for each room and that you have the proper unpacking supplies with you before you open anything. These supplies include trash bags, box cutters, and a tool kit that includes screws and a hammer. You should also have your Internet guide handy in your new home because your family will thank you for setting that up immediately.
Take it one Room at a Time
Before you unpack anything you will need to create a plan. If you don’t plan out which rooms you want to unpack first, the process will just get messy and there will be no organization. We suggest that you start with your kitchen. This is the common area of the home and most likely you and your family will be using it immediately after moving in. Find the boxes labeled for the kitchen and start to organize where you want the appliances to go. You will actually save some money by not relying on takeout for the first week or so. You can start cooking as soon as this room is unpacked!
Now it’s time to unpack the bedrooms. Unless you have very small children, each family member should be responsible for unpacking their room with their belongings. They should have the freedom to put their items where they wish and after all, this will help speed up the process. Of course, if the bedroom furniture is not already set up yet, this is the first step to take care of before any boxes of clothes are opened.
You can now focus your attention to the bathrooms and family room. Have your family members help you out with these rooms as well and they do not have to be unpacked right away. If you focus your attention on one room at a time, you will find efficiency and organization during this process. It can be hard to stay organized when all you want to do is enjoy your new home, however it’s important to follow these steps for a quick and easy process.
