Unpacking is just like packing, but in reverse .... or is it?

Packing and MovingBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

Moving to Tulsa is both exciting and tedious! Along with attending to yourself during the move, there are steps you can take to make unpacking and moving into your new home, less stressful.

Considering that moving is often monotonous along with bland, music is a great approach to keep motivated and on target. It can even enhance your mood so take into consideration having a stereo or television set up so you're able to perform to the sound of your favorite songs or have a Wireless speaker accessible to connect to your mobile device.

Preparation and Organizing Continue to be Critical

Packing strategically can certainly drastically reduce stressors and headaches once you reach your new home. Pack an "essentials" box (or a few) containing things you will be needing immediately at your new home. This container ought to include things like:

· Bathroom towels.

· Toiletries.

· Linens/blankets.

· Necessary cooking implements.

· A handful of cups, dishes, bowls (conversely, you could opt to order out or have non-perishable things to eat on your first night).

By doing this after you get to the new home in Tulsa, you should have all you need to get through the primary night.

Additionally, be sure to label each carton with which space it will go into when it arrives. By doing this you will not have to blindly open cartons unsure of what's inside it or sort through a great number of boxes to locate something you will need.

You can also already have a perception of the location where the furniture is to go. Preparing where exactly every piece ought to go before the move could quicken the task and enable you to keep organized and committed to the remainder of the unpacking.


If you have a home office, you may need to unpack these items initially to remain on top of your business. When you happen to be a work-from-home person, certainly you'll want to have your working environment unpacked, sorted out, and functional so you do not get behind.

Assemble the Home Furniture

Moving day in Tulsa is usually strenuous and you'll in all likelihood be ready to crawl into bed that initial night. This is why assembling and making your bed(s) is an excellent start before unpacking boxes.

You are not going to want to have to do it once you have expended the entire day unpacking cartons and bags in addition to arranging. The good news is that if you have hired a professional moving company, they will likely assemble the beds for you.

Unbox the Kitchen

Once you have the beds put together, your kitchen is the most reasonable place to begin unpacking. Considering that the kitchen is known as the heart of your house, getting the cabinets, cupboards, as well as appliances all unpacked and arranged will assist you to shift into your new house.

In case you have an eat-in kitchen, you will likely also have a kitchen table that will help you unpack in a far more structured means.

Take on the Bathroom

After you spend hours on end unpacking and organizing, you will most probably like to take a shower or dip in an unwinding bath. Your "essentials" box ought to include the toiletries, soaps, shampoos and conditioners, medications, along with other items which are important for the bathroom.

Getting the bathroom and kitchen unpacked tends to make unpacking the rest of your items easier.

Go on to the Bedrooms

Since the furniture is already in place, the bedrooms should be the next to unpack. If you have packed the bed linens in clear plastic bags or bins, it will be simpler to spot which bed linens go to which room. Alternatively, write the specific person's bedroom on the carton immediately after packing it to make it simpler.

Unpack the Living and Dining Rooms

With a little luck, you'll have your household furniture in place which can make unpacking everything else less difficult. Don't worry about decorative things including wall-hangings or knick-knackery until all of the crucial things are unpacked.


Seasonal belongings for example holiday accents or stuff that you hardly ever make use of may be unpacked last. This stuff will often belong in an attic, basement, storage space, or garage.

Similar to packing, unpacking is made easier with planning and organization. Being organized about the process will help to ensure that you enjoy your new home in Tulsa as gracefully and quickly as you can.
