Unpack your stuff one day at a time.

Pace your unpacking over time.

Remember that you don’t have to unpack everything in one day or even a week. Take your time to settle into your new home. There are many other urgent tasks you will have to take care of. 

First and foremost, unpack the most important things. Remember, the boxes that you had packed at the very beginning and kept aside? This is the important stuff and so you might want to unpack these boxes right away.

Next, you unpack your children’s things. They are the most impatient and unpacking the rest of the house will be easier if you set up their rooms first. Take your time and neatly organize their rooms before you move on to the next room. You will not feel like coming back to a half set-up room time and again.

After the kids are settled in their rooms, the kitchen should be next on your priority list. Unpacking the kitchen all at once can be a tedious task, so for now, you can just unpack the most frequently used items and all the utensils that you will need for cooking. Sooner or later, everyone will start craving for a home-cooked meal.

Unpack the bathroom and bedroom essentials.

Now, it is time to unpack the bathroom essentials. This will be your most favorite room when setting up a home because it takes the least amount of time.

The bedroom is the next room that will be unpacked. Unpack your clothes first and arrange them neatly in your closets. Then move on to the décor, bed arrangement, and curtains.

The living room is the last room you should unpack unless you are expecting guests over. In that case, you can move the bedroom to the end of this list. Once all the furniture is in place, decorate your living room.

Once all the boxes are empty, it’s time to go shopping to fill in the empty spaces in your home and to fill the kitchen with some groceries.
