Unpacking after your move

Your new move done, woo-hoo!  Now comes the daunting task of unpacking! Here a few tips to keep in mind once you get to your new home.

  1. Keep calm

Allow yourself at least a week or more to unpack and find a place for everything. However, some moving companies, like 5 Star Moving and Storage, will save you time by unpacking for you!

  1. Give your place a quick clean

It’s the last thing you’re going to feel like doing, but a little light cleaning will be so much easier now without furniture in the way.

  1. Unpack the essential stuff first

Bedding and bathroom followed by kitchen items. Resist the urge to decorate at this point.

  1. Toss out the garbage

Place all your used boxes in one area and break them down for recycling as needed.

  1. One step at a time

Everything won’t be perfect at first. Allow yourself time to adjust to your new home and rearrange things as needed.
