How To Stay Organized When Unpacking Your New Home

So you’ve just moved into a new home and the thought of unpacking is overwhelming. We’ve been there! To help you prioritize and organize here are a few tips for getting started that are sure to ease the pain of unpacking. Staying organized is one of the many challenges in and of itself. Fortunately, there are things that you can do to help.

Make Time

You will have to make time in your schedule to unpack. If you can, we suggest taking a few days off from work. Many people will spend their evenings and weekends unpacking. However, you will likely need more time than that. You may also want to arrange for a babysitter to watch your children.

If you are unable to take time off from work, don’t fret. You can still designate time in your schedule to unpack. Set a daily goal and stick to it. For example, you can set a goal to unpack four boxes per day.

Unpack the Essential Boxes

The essential box should be the last box that you pack and the first box that you unpack. It may take you several weeks for you to completely unpack. However, you will at least have the key things that you need. This makes your first few nights in the new home a lot easier.

Unpack a Room at One Time

Bedrooms and bathrooms first. After all of that moving, you’ll need a comfy place to sleep, right? Make sure you have clean sheets, pillows, and comforters ready to go. The kitchen will likely be the most complicated room to unpack. Takeout should be your go to in the meantime.

The living room or family room is the area that you can save for last. Keep in mind that if you have multiple people in your household, then you can have each person take one room.

Hire Professional Movers

Professional movers may not only help you pack and move your belongings, but they can also help you unpack. This saves time, protects belongs, and gives you access to the necessary equipment needed to move. Make sure to hire a  professional moving company with good reviews.
