Once your removal men have unloaded all of your furniture and boxes, it'll be time to unpack. This may seem like a daunting task but, if you tackle it the right way, it can be easy.
Here are some simple tips you can use to make unpacking easier:
Where to start - Always start by unpacking the essentials first. If you have planned ahead, these will be in one box all together. Essentials include medicine, toiletries, clothes for your first few days and the most important of your cooking items.
Next you should reassemble your beds and unpack your bed linen. By doing this you will be able to feel more at home and have the opportunity for a good night’s sleep. Another essential is to unpack your towels so that you can make use of the bathroom.
The next important thing to do is to unpack your kitchen boxes. You will benefit from doing this sooner rather than later because otherwise you will be living on takeaways for a while. Unpacking the microwave, toaster and kettle will give you some options. If you move in the summer you could also unpack your barbecue and use this to cook on.
It will also be important to unpack your clothing early on. It's important to unpack school uniforms, work clothes and pyjamas as these will be needed day to day.
The garage and shed can be left until last. The tools that you will need should be in a separate box. Essential tools include a screwdriver, hammer, nails and a utility knife.
