3 Tips That Will Make It Easier To Settle Into Your New Home

Posted on

If you are moving, there is a good chance that you are not going to be up to it or have the time to completely unpack all of your belongings before you need to go to sleep for the night, which is why you need to pack carefully in order to gain access to the things you need right away.

#1 Pack An Overnight Bag

As you pack up, pack yourself an overnight bag like you would when you go on a trip. You are going to want to make sure that you pack something to sleep in, as well as two or three outfits that you can wear in the days following your move. Make sure that you pack outfits that fit your schedule. For example, if you have to go to work the next day, make sure you pack your work clothes or if you are going to stay home and relax, make sure that you pack more relaxed clothes.

Be sure to also pack some toiletries that you'll need, such as your toothbrush, toothpaste, and soap.

You should also make sure that you put a couple of towels into your overnight bag as well, so you can easy access to the towels to use after you shower.

Make sure everyone in your household packs their own overnight bag.

#2 Pack Bedding In Clear Containers

One of the first things that you are going to need to set up are your beds in order to relax and get some sleep in your new home. For each bed, pack up all of your bedding in clear crates. This will make it easier to spot the crates among all of your cardboard boxes. Make sure that you pack sheets, blankets and pillows in each bedding crate.

Packing all of your bedding in an easy to identify container that looks different compared to all of your other moving boxes and containers will make it easier to spot and grab, and set-up your bed.

#3 Make A Top Necessity Kitchen Box

Your kitchen can generate a lot of boxes, in between your food items, plates, cups, pots, pans and special kitchen gadgets. It can take a while to unpack your entire kitchen, which is why you need to make a "kitchen essentials" box. This box should include the dry goods that you need immediate access to, as well as the plates and gear you need to make that food.

For example, if you make coffee every morning, you are going to want to put your coffee maker and coffee grounds in your essential box. Or if you like to have toast every morning, put that in your essential boxes. You could also pack easy to make items like mac n' cheese and other pastas and just pack a pan.

Like with your bedding supplies, make sure you pack your kitchen essential items in a box that stands out or label it in a different manner than your other boxes so you can easily find it.

As you pack and get ready to move, make sure that you pack an overnight bag, box up your bedding all together and make a kitchen essential box as well.
