Unpacking Strategies Once You’ve Moved In

Posted on December 28th, 2022

Moving into your new home is an extremely exciting moment for you and your family. However, once the mover has brought your boxes in from the moving truck, you must figure out how to unpack them without adding stress to the equation.

If you have a Tulsa or OKC move on the horizon, here are some unpacking tips you should consider while making your new house a home.

1. Don’t Try to Unpack in a Day

With all the unpacking and organizing to be done after a move, it can be tempting to try and do everything in one day. However, giving yourself plenty of time for this process is essential, so you stay calm and focused. 

Give yourself a few days to a week to unpack. We recommend tackling your unpacking room by room. 

Taking your time will allow you to create a space that feels like home and prevents you from having to do heavy reorganizing down the line.

2. Label Boxes and Containers

Labeling your boxes helps make the unpacking process easier and faster. Knowing where everything plans to go during packing enables you to get boxes in the right place during your move. 

While labeling is an added task in your move, a Tulsa and OKC moving company like Bigger Better Movers can provide packing services that do the labeling for you!

We can provide this proactive step that makes unpacking in your new home a breeze.

3. Make a plan for where each piece of furniture will go before you start unpacking

The last thing you want to do is start unpacking all your belongings and realize you don’t have enough space to place your furniture. 

Before you move in, measure and tape the areas where each piece of furniture will go. Not only will this save you time, but it will also give your movers a better idea of optimal furniture placement.

4. Unpack the essentials first – bed, couch, dining table, etc.

It’s going to take some time to unpack your whole home. So, we say make sure you unpack the essentials first. Toiletries, beds, couches, dining tables, dishes, and cutlery are the most important things you should focus on first.

This way, if the unpacking goes on longer than expected, you always have what you need to get by daily.

5. Take Breaks When Needed

As we mentioned earlier, unpacking is a process that should take a few days when done right. Even with a reliable moving company on your side, moving can be an exhausting process. If you find yourself getting tired or needing a break from unpacking, take some time to yourself, away from the unpacking.

You want this experience to be fun and satisfying. Overdoing it will only add unnecessary frustration to the process.
