When it’s time to start packing for your move, it’s worth taking a few extra minutes to plan accordingly. If you just throw things into boxes, you’re sure to find a number of belongings damaged upon arrival at your new place. And, some of the most common items that end up sustaining damage during a Read More…
Once all of your stuff has been hauled over to your new place, you may find yourself unsure of what to do next. That’s why it’s always helpful to have a plan so you know exactly what essentials should be tackled and what should be left for the following few days after. So when you find yourself asking “What should I do directly following my move?” here are a few key steps to remember.
Take a Breather
First and foremost — take a break! You’ve been working hard and getting things organized so take some time to sit down, recuperate, and maybe eat a snack and rehydrate before moving on to your next steps. That way you can rest a little and regain some energy to tackle those boxes.
Once you feel refreshed and ready to get back to it, start by organizing your boxes according to each room. And, thanks to your handy labelling on each box, you’ll be able to simply glance at them and determine what should be placed where. This will make the unpacking process much easier for you.
Most moving companies will place your furniture where you’d like it to go, so you generally will not need to do anything else following the move. Instead, consider getting things right back to the way you like them. Dig out your throw pillows, blankets, and accents to make things feel a bit more like home.
Set Up Your Bed
Since you probably have been up and at it since the early morning, the only other thing you should really do directly following the move is to set up your bed. Set up the mattress and throw on some clean sheets so when your exhausted body is ready for some serious snoozing, you’ll have your bed ready and waiting.
