When you move into a new space, you can easily feel overwhelmed. From the amount of stuff you didn’t know you had to climbing those stairs for what feels like the hundredth time, it’s hard to stay on top of things. However, the lists and organization doesn’t end as soon as your boxes are delivered to your new space. Follow these tips to stay sane and learn what to unpack first in your new home.
Large Appliances and Furniture
If you brought your own large appliances such as a refrigerator, washing machine, and dryer, get these items hooked up as soon as possible. It may take several hours or even overnight for the fridge to get properly cold. You should also assemble and arrange beds before anything else so you have a place to sleep. If you have time, setting up large bookcases and other furniture can help unpacking go easier.
Bed and Bathroom
Next up on what to unpack first are the essentials: bedding, bathroom, and your overnight bag. Unpack your clean sheets and pillows so you can get a good night’s sleep after the long day. Do the same for kids if you have them, and unpack a few toys or games for them (or your pet). You also want to set up the basics in the bathroom, such as a shower curtain, soap, toilet paper, a towel, and other toiletries. To help make this go smoother, pack an overnight moving bag so you have everything you need on the first night!
No one wants to live on delivered pizza and Chinese take out for the first week in their new apartment! Unpacking the kitchen next can make the rest of the home seem like less of a chore. Plus, you’ll be able to make yourself quick, healthy food and save money on that pizza.
