Moving In- Things You Should Unpack First!

When it comes to priorities we usually get confused about which room comes first- the bedroom or kitchen or the bathroom? Some logical options are the bedroom, kitchen, and child’s room. The bedroom is necessary given how exhausted you are, the clean sheets will feel very comforting and will help you in welcoming the next day with more energy and wherewithal.

Next important area is your kitchen, though you may order food from outside, but you still need your glasses, spoons, that favorite cup for your coffee or your teapot. So pack a mixed bag which contains all the necessary items which will help you get on smoothly and enjoy your first night in your new home with your survival kit.

Your first night survival kit should have supplies –

For Bathrooms-Toilet paper, hand soaps, cleaning supplies, bathmats, shower curtains, towels, medication, a first aid kit, garbage bags, and toiletries.

For Kitchen-More garbage bags, disposable plates, cups and utensils.

For Bedrooms-Sheets, blankets, pillows, pillow-cases, electronic charger, a few changes of clothing.

For Children-Toys, entertainment, snacks, a few changes of clothing.

For Pets-Toys, treats, food and water dishes.

Pack your overnight items in transparent containers or mark the containers so you can find them easily. If possible pack your overnight things separately from the rest of your belongings.

It is important that when the time comes to unpack, find places for the items that you are going to use the most.

  • Groceries and perishable items.

  • Pots, pans and cooking supplies like spices and utensils.

  • Anything you require for work or school.

Just as you unpacked the important things first, unpack for your most important rooms also. If you have kids, help them in unpacking their things first and get their room settled as they have had a stressful day. Surrounding them with familiar things will help them settle faster. With small children your pet/pets will also be confused and stressed as the day comes to an end and moreover they have to get used to the new environment.
