After the move comes the unpacking. Many people will apply organizational techniques when packing up their old home, but don’t take into consideration that unpacking can be just as stressful if one isn’t properly prepared. In order to transition easily into your home there are many things that you will need to consider. Of course there will be the unpacking of boxes, but also the unwrapping of furniture, arranging rooms and getting things decorated so that you’ll be able to feel more at home in your new residence.
What to do once you have finished transporting all the boxes to your new home:
Get some rest. After a long day of moving, you definitely will need to take a break before you start unpacking and sorting through your boxes. This will also be beneficial for the kids, as they will undoubtedly be exhausted from the earlier events of the day. Because it will be your first night in your new home, rather than having the kids get comfortable in their new rooms when everything in the house is still boxed up, consider having a big sleepover. Get out the air mattresses, and blankets and have everyone cuddle up in the living room. You can also incorporate a bit more fun into this grand sleepover by playing games with the kids or putting on their favourite movie before you’re ready for the lights to go out.
The next morning is when you’ll want to get the unpacking done. Because of your wonderful organizational skills, all your boxes will be labelled with the rooms they belong in. Get the kids to help with the lighter boxes and have everything transported to their ultimate destination. Get the dressers set up in the kids room, and have them sort through the boxes that contain their clothes and unpack everything into their dresser. They’ll love helping out and will feel great that you’re viewing them as responsible enough to take on this task. You’ll also get some time to take care of the unpacking in your own bedroom, and won’t have to worry about the kids because they’ll be fully occupied. Once they’ve completed their task, allow them a candy or ice cream to show them just how much you appreciate their help.
Next you’ll want to get the kitchen done. Unpack the boxes containing the plates, pots and pans, get the refrigerator plugged in to give it enough time to cool. You’ll typically have to wait for quite some time before you are able to put foods in the refrigerator so you may want to plan your grocery shopping trip for the next day. But what will you eat? This is a great time for a family dinner night at a restaurant. You won’t have to worry about cooking and making a mess when there’s still so much to get done, and everyone will be able to enjoy having some down time, eating out.
Take care of the living room next. Get the furniture up, the television mounted, hang up pictures, sort your picture frames. You’ll want to try to unpack as many boxes as possible and you’ll also want to get your new home feeling like home, with lots of pictures of your happy family.
