Tips for Unpacking Efficiently After a Move

Published by Webmaster

Packing your life into boxes and moving from one location to another is equal parts chaotic and exciting. Our moving company close to Chicago knows how stressful the moving process can be, which is why we always recommend hiring a cheap moving company to help with your moving and storage needs.

Once we have unloaded your final box into your new space, it can be overwhelming where to begin unpacking. After all, your moving experience also consists of unpacking and organizing all of your belongings. Here are some tips on how to do so efficiently and in an organized manner.

Follow a System

Before you dig into the first box that you see, take a step back and consider developing a system to stay organized. Start by tackling one room at a time before jumping from one area to another. You can examine each box label to ensure your things are in the right room before you get started.

Start with the Necessities

On your moving day, you may feel too tired to completely unpack every box in your new space. Ideally, you will unpack the necessities on the day of your move so you can at least access basics such as toiletries, basic kitchen supplies, medications, or paperwork.

Prioritize the Kitchen

After the necessities are out, consider moving to the kitchen to unpack. Ideally, you have labeled each box to make the unpacking process that much easier. Hook up your major appliances, put the silverware away, and find the best cabinets to place necessities such as plates, bowls, and cups. After all, you’ll need to prepare your kitchen fairly quickly in order to use it.

Move Onto the Bedrooms & Bathrooms Next

Once the kitchen is unpacked, move onto the bedrooms and then the bathrooms. Take your time to make the space your own. Unpacking can be tiring and time-consuming, so don’t rush through this process.
