Unpacking requires time and it is not a one-day-task by any means. It is time consuming and it takes real effort in setting up a whole house.
For many people, the most disliked part of moving is unpacking. They find unpacking seriously boring and irritating, and you can’t blame them because it is true to some extent!
Did you know that we can trick our mind into believing anything? So, why not you trick your mind into believing that unpacking is fun and then you’ll start to notice that it is indeed not that boring.
Here are some of the most effective tips to unpack all your boxes in no time at all.
TIP 1: START WITH ITEMS THAT ARE ESSENTIAL
All the important daily life items need to be unpacked first. So it is better to start unpacking bathroom items such as toilet paper, body and hand soap, bath towels, shower curtains, toothpaste, toothbrush, shampoo, and deodorants.
Then head to other items such as broom, vacuum, trash bags, bed sheets, pillows, bowls and pet food (if you have a pet). These are the basic necessary items that you need to unpack first, they’ll set a tempo and help you unpack fast.
TIP 2: STAY FOCUSED AND SET MINI GOALS
You can play a rhythmic music and by setting mini goals you’ll be able to complete the whole unpacking session swiftly.
TIP 3: START UNPACKING ROOM BY ROOM
It is imperative that when the movers are bringing in all the furniture and boxes in your house, they need to place the boxes exactly where they should be – living room furniture should be in the living room and not your bedroom. Start unpacking your bedroom first and then go to other rooms.
TIP 4: UNPACK ONLY THOSE KITCHEN UTENSILS THAT ARE NEEDED THE MOST
People start unpacking everything, including those items that they might not use for a while and this creates unnecessary burden and weariness. The best thing is to unpack only those items of the kitchen that you’ll be using the most.
TIP 5: GET RID OF PACKING MATERIAL AND CLEAN ON REGULAR INTERVALS
It may seem like a lot of work, but it is way better than cleaning the whole house for hours after you are done with unpacking. You need to clean after completing every mini-task.
TIP 6: UNPACKING THE LIVING ROOM
It comes second-last on the list of things that you will be unpacking. So, start unpacking your couch and coffee table. Set up the TV and you have your living room ready. The key to unpacking is not opening up every box and making a mess all over the house. You have to unpack only those items that you need the most.
TIP 7: GARAGE COMES LAST
Unpacking the garage needs to come last and if you are feeling tired then prolong it for another day or two. But eventually, you’ll have to unpack your garage.
Well, the secret to unpacking fast is having fun in doing it, so play some music, take pictures and you’ll notice that all your unpacking would be done in a short time. You have to feel relaxed while unpacking and the best way is to embrace the unpacking time with a smile on your face.
