You Can Actually Enjoy The Experience Of Unpacking After That Big Move!
Ordinarily, moving is a hectic experience that is likely to leave you more exhausted than you would like. The fact that there is a lot to worry about implies that you will be tired at the end of the process. Unfortunately, when you move you have to deal with unpacking and organizing your new home or office. You have to find things and put them where you need them to be, and this is often really hard unless you know how to make it easy.
You labeled the boxes, right?
You may take this for granted because it seems obvious, but if you labeled the boxes you should not have a hard time unpacking. Make sure that all the boxes are in the right room. This will mean having everything where it is supposed to be already before you even start unpacking. Your movers could help with this if the boxes have been labeled. If not, you should be ready for a very nerve wrecking process of unpacking since you will not even know where to start. If you cannot label the boxes before you move, consider using a different size or color boxes for each room at least. This will make the unpacking process more bearable for you.
Get comfortable by making yourself at home first
The point of unpacking is to make your new house feel more like home. This means that you need to settle in and get comfortable. As such, when unpacking you need to start with the essentials. These are probably things that you had to pack last because you needed to use them until the end. Once you have unpacked all the basic things that you need, you can focus on the things that make your house a home. These may include framed family photos, wall hangings and other items that are unique to your home décor. The basic idea here is for you to unpack all the things that you need, and those that will help to make the move less stressful before you can unpack everything else.
Make a complete plan before you start opening the boxes
If you decide to unpack first and then arrange your house, you will end up with piles of clutter everywhere. It is a better idea for you to actually organize the room in your mind so that you can unpack and position things where they are supposed to be. Clutter is worse than unpacked boxes, and the only way to avoid stacking clutter is to visualize how you will organize the room before you start unpacking.
Moving is a big challenge, as is settling in to the new house. Unpacking however, does not have to be as hard for you. All you have to do is think it through, know what you are doing, and always do things at your own pace. Rushing through the process will only stress you out so try to relax and you may actually enjoy it.
