Unpacking in many ways can be just as stressful as moving, and it can be tempting to just leave everything in the box and sleep on the floor. But you can make this experience a lot less arduous by creating and sticking to a system. Label your boxes before you move, and start off by unpacking the essentials – clothes, groceries, your mattress and pillows. From there, your next step is the kitchen; get your coffee machine and/or toaster out of their boxes and plugged in, and your pots and pans put away. Next is the bedrooms and bathrooms, then the living room (this is where you should be assembling furniture), and finally the garage. Stay organized and tackle one room at a time and unpacking can be a breeze.
- Unpack daily necessities first, such as clothes, toiletries, medication, and some food and kitchen gear.
- The next priorities are to completely unpack for the kitchen and then the bedrooms and bathrooms.
- Furniture assembly in the living and dining rooms comes next, with the garage and outdoors being the lowest priority.
