At Busy Buddies, Inc., we understand unpacking after a move can feel overwhelming, so we’re here to help with our moving seniors services. With proper planning, unpacking can be easy and stress-free.
Here are tips to help you stay organized while unpacking after a move.
Have a System
Create an inventory list when packing. This will help you track your things before moving. Pack your belongings according to use or by room and label boxes.
Begin With Essentials
Unpack your necessities first. This should include toiletries, medication, clothes for the first few days and essential food preparation items.
Do the Kitchen First
Unpacking your kitchen is easy if you labeled the moving boxes. Fill the kitchen cupboards and cabinets first. Hook up major appliances and plug-in smaller appliances. For tasks like this, you can count on Busy Buddies, Inc. for assistance. We can help pack, unpack and declutter your home.
Unpack the Bedrooms Next
Set up the beds in each bedroom. Install shelves and organize closets to make unpacking faster and more organized.
Move to the Bathrooms
Next, unpack towels, toiletries and bathroom essentials. Start with the most important stuff, such as medication, body care products and the shower curtain.
Make a systematic plan for rearranging furniture in the bedrooms, living room and dining room. Only place larger items or appliances once you have determined where all the furniture will go. This will save you time and energy.
