Suggested Timeline: ASAP until 1-2 weeks
Don't be overwhelmed by the prospect of dealing with all those boxes immediately after the van drives away! Make your unpacking experience a little less daunting and a little more fun.
- Unpack the essentials. This box of essentials should contain everything you need to make it for a couple of nights.
- Stock the cupboard. One of the first rooms you should unpack is the kitchen. Get all the basics up and running. You'll need the energy boost a good, home cooked meal can give.
- Tackle the garage last. But, your garage can get out of hand pretty quickly, so try to have an organization plan in mind before unpacking.
- Remember the time-honored practice of delivery pizza. Sit on the floor or use still-unpacked boxes as chairs and tables. Make the most out of the experience, take a deep breath, and never forget to enjoy yourself.
