Making Unpacking Less Overwhelming

If you’ve just moved to a new house, you know how overwhelming it feels to be faced with the task of unpacking at the end. Moving is exhausting, so unpacking is probably the last thing you want to do. However, you’ll need to unpack at least the essentials if you want your home to be livable. Keep in mind that you don’t have to unpack everything in one day or even one week, you can spread the process out over a few days. You can make unpacking less stressful by prioritizing rooms, starting with the biggest items and using a packing checklist ahead of time.

From the moving experts at Crown Moving in St. George, Utah, here are a few more tips to make unpacking a little less painful:

  1. Be aware of what you’re unpacking
  2. You can do this by creating an inventory list before you move, so you’re aware of what is in each box. This way you don’t end up with a haphazard pile of useless items.
  3. Unpack the essentials first.
  4. Bedding, appliances and electronic devices are just a few examples of essentials. Anything you need to feel comfortable and get you through the first few days is an essential.
  5. Start with the kitchen and bathrooms.
  6. Your kitchen and bathroom should be functional before anything else, as a good meal and a refreshing shower are necessary for most people to feel normal and comfortable. When your kitchen is more or less “set up” it can serve as a neat, organized place for your whole family to congregate in and take a break from the disorganized mess that is moving in.
  7. Assemble your furniture.
  8. No one likes building furniture, but it has to be done at some point. You might as well get it over with right away instead of leaving boxes of un-assembled furniture lying around for weeks or even months.
  9. Leave the garage and outdoors for last.
  10. These are the items you’re not going to need for a while, so don’t worry about them during the first few days or even weeks at your new house.
  11. Don’t procrastinate.
  12. You’ll never fully feel at home until you’re unpacked. Living with boxes around you creates unnecessary clutter, and it doesn’t look pretty either. Moving in gives you the chance to start fresh and create a beautiful, organized space that makes you feel safe and at ease.
