The move is not done until all items have been unpacked and placed in their right placements inside the new home. And if you think that unpacking is simply taking out your stuff from the boxes then placing them accordingly around the house, then you may have something else coming straight at you. Here are some useful tips to make unpacking easier so that you can finally take a well-deserved rest from all that moving.
GREAT UNPACKING TIPS
Clean First, Unpack Later
It is very easy (and exciting) to start unpacking once you arrive at your new home. Before you excitedly starting unpacking and decorating, make sure each room has been cleaned and well-sanitized before you put your stuff in them. They may look clean, but don’t let looks fool you, especially if the house you bought is not brand new.
It Doesn’t Have to be Done in 1 Day
Unless you’re moving into a studio-type apartment, then you don’t have to push all the unpacking to be done in a single day. Even though it feels quite nice to take a look at the output after the stressful packing and moving you’ve been doing all this time, don’t hastily finish everything in one go. Mistakes can still occur, even at this point; hence, it is better to take things one step at a time.
Keeping the Kids Entertained
If your child could not or does not want to help with the unpacking, then make sure they stay entertained while you and other members of the household help with the task. You can even let them explore the new house, but make sure they don’t make a fuss too much as they might break some stuff or even hurt themselves.
Furniture First, Then Tech
Have your couches, tables, closets, and other pieces of furniture set first before you place the TV, computers, and other kinds of tech. It helps with the designing stage when done in this order, plus you get to enjoy watching TV when there’s a couch in front of it rather than sitting on the floor.
Take the Boxes Away as Soon as They’re Empty
Boxes, especially large ones, are a hassle when it comes to moving around the new home. So once a box is empty, stow them away immediately.
