Here are some tips for the unpacking process and keeping your sanity while doing it.
1. Make Sure All Boxes Go To The Right Rooms
Although at first it may be easy to dump them all in the garage or in one room on the main floor, you will just end up having to move them again anyway. If you’re going to do something do it right the first time. Get them into the right rooms and do not open them if they are not in the right room.
2. Start With The Essentials & Pace Yourself
You know the things you couldn’t box up until the last minute because you needed them right until the end? Yeah, unpack that stuff first, because odds are if it was important to you in your old house, it’s going to be important in the new one. Also, do not worry about unpacking everything at once. Go through and prioritize and pace yourself to avoid making a mess.
3. Plan Before You Unpack
Read the contents of every box before you start unpacking and get an idea of where everything will go. If you do not have a vision for everything, you will end up with clutter on tables, counters etc.
