When moving to a new place, there are so many things one should take care of ,such as: packing all the belongings, hiring a moving truck to transport their belongings, cleaning the house when you are done packing and finally unpacking all the stuff when you move to your new place.
Many people like to have a guide for unpacking, which can assure them easy and not stressful work. If you need a step by step explanation of what you have to do while unpacking, here it is:
Step one: Make sure you have kept the inventory list , which you created during the packing. Inventory list is essential, to keep track of all the things you have packed and check whether they are all presented when unpacking. You know while moving you it happens that you lose stuff; either in the hurry to pack as quickly as possible or in the moving truck. This is why, you need an inventory list.
Step two: Unpack the essential box. While packing you should have prepared a box in which you have put everything you will need during the first couple of days in your new house. Essential box contains stuff like : food, beverage, toothpaste,toothbrush , towels and seasonal clothes you will wear until you pack all your belongings.
Step three: Unpack the kitchen. The kitchen is the one place you will need immediately. You have to unpack all the kitchen appliances and tools , so to have something to cook with. Don't unpack just a couple of stuff , but the whole kitchen: the refrigerator, the oven , the kitchen table , the toaster, all dishes, all plates and other kitchen stuff. You will need those immediately to have your meals prepared.
Step four: Unpack the bedroom. This is the second room you are going to need first. You cannot have your family sleep on the floor until you have unpacked every room. Make sure to have your children's room unpacked as well , so they can have a place to sleep in. If you have had a TV in the bedroom in your previous apartment. If you unpack the TV there will be no need for you to unpack the living room as well. You know that men cannot spend a whole day without watching television, so make sure to provide this entertainment for your husband.
Step five: Continue will the bathroom. You have to unpack the whole bathroom not just a couple of towels and toothpaste. You are going to need everything that is one bathroom, so you can take showers and wash your teeth.
The last room you should unpack is the garage, if you have one. Usually, we keep stuff in the garage, that we don't need but like to keep. These are old stuff, we have had for years, like an old machine, old picture portraits, your baby swing and other stuff. You will not need these things immediately when you move into your new house, so leave the garage for the weekends.
It seems that , in order to have an efficient and successful unpacking you have to have a planned and well organized packing. Although , the two tasks are a little bit different, they cause the same feelings to women, which are frustration and stress. If you are one of those people, who cannot get organized and don't like planning, you should definitely use the steps given above, to ensure that you will have a successful unpacking.
