It’s said that moving is one of the top stressors in a person’s life. And that is not only about moving itself. Surprisingly, the most depressing part of a moving process is unpacking and settling down at your new home after the move. It is mostly due to the unpacking procrastination that keeps holding you somewhere in between the I-still-miss-my-old-place and I-feel-like-this-is-a-home-of-my-dream. We know unpacking can make people go crazy with just the thought of having to find a place for every piece of belongings you moved into a new home with.

If you ever thought packing is insane, check out some tips on packing and you’ll see that it is unpacking that can turn into an overwhelming process. How to stay calm while you are unpacking, in order to be organized? Here are our few tips to help you stay sane while unpacking.
Sure, you already labeled each box with its room of destination when packing, now ask your movers to unload accordingly. It will save you time and effort to unpack the numerous boxes with their destination room.
To get the best result try to plan the order for unpacking for each room. What keeps your entire apartment from becoming cluttered all at once is its full unpacking from the beginning to the very end. Remember the things you couldn’t pack until the very last moment in each room, those are usually the most important things to unpack first. Set a small housewarming party 10-14 days after your Moving date. That will not let you procrastinate too long and will keep you busy enough to stay tuned.
As soon as a box is emptied of all its stuff, put it aside and then recycle it. This will clear up much-needed space in your new home. Decide if you want your used boxes to be reused, recycled, or tossed away. Unfold the boxes and pile them either right in front of your place or in the garage if you have already arranged to have them picked up. That might not sound ecological at all, but getting rid of your used boxes is the best idea these days because the virus can stay up to 24 hours on the surface of the cardboard. Make sure you care about your health first.
A handy tip to note before you unpack is to think about what things you want in each room and how you want each room in your home to look like. If you have a clear picture in your mind about what you want, it will help you unpack with better accuracy and save yourself the tiredness of having to fit things unnaturally in a room.
When finishing the unpacking process buy some extra shelves or organizers if necessary. They are available in different sizes or shapes, so you can pick any based on your need and taste. After you’re done with unpacking, look around, and try to understand what you need to make your life more comfortable. Here are some ideas on what you might need right before your very first step into a new home.
