For most of us, the biggest of life’s challenges usually remains planning and preparing for a house move, whether you accept it or not. And the struggle doesn’t seem to end here. There is another daunting chapter waiting for us in our new home – it is the comprehensive task of unboxing and unpacking the moving cartons and boxes, and rearranging the same. Relocation is one such project that one has to go through it at least once or twice in a lifetime, and no matter whether you love it or hate it, there is no way to escape the toiling.

In this blog post, we have talked about one of the most common problems “unpacking of goods and home organization” that people face when they shift into their newly purchased homes –and how it can be made more manageable with a few simple steps:
• Inspect and decide: We have begun this article from the moment the professional movers drop the moving cartons at your doorstep, so you can keep an eye on the process of unpacking and the goods arrangement task a lot more closely. Make sure when you bring the boxes inside, you double-check each of them carefully before sliding them to their specific rooms. Ensure all the packages are intact, nothing is out of place, nothing is lost or damaged during the move. If you come across any damages or if some items seem missing, you can inquire the moving team to compensate for the same, and do not forget to seek insurance coverage if you have purchased one for your move.
• Neither do rush nor postpone: You would be tired after making such a long, tiring move, so when it comes to rearrangement of your packages in your place, make sure neither you hurriedly get into the task, nor you procrastinate it. Take your time and choose which area or room or space you want to set up first. But, before you get into reorganizing any of your household articles, make sure to establish the major appliances first as you will need them right from the initial moment in your new home. So, put up the refrigerator, the invertor, geyser, microwave oven, air conditioner, television, etc. – handling these complicated, bulky items could be tricky, but you can ask the professionals to do that for you!
• Go by the labels to unpack: To make the move happen in an orderly manner, you have invested a lot of time in labeling each of your packages, so you can keep track of the number of items and also, to ensure a smooth unboxing and re-arrangement process. Let’s say you chose to organize your bedroom and kitchen area first – these two spaces being highly used need to be made functional before the other rooms in your home.
Now, get all the packages belonging to your bedroom and unpack only one or just a couple of them. Say you wish to make your bed first. For that, you must bring out all the bedding items – the pillows, cushions, bed sheets, sheets, linen, curtains – everything that you might need to set your bedroom first. Once you are done with that, you can put up the other linen items – for your washroom, the extra ones that you keep together, stacked in cupboards.
For setting up your kitchen, you need to designate ample time from your schedule to devote to the task because it is not that easy as it might appear. With innumerable kitchen equipment and appliances, that not only require the right places to be kept, but also the different kitchenware supplies including the crockery and cutlery and the basic kitchen tools and stuff that you need on an everyday basis – and must be kept inaccessible drawers and wardrobes – you would need ample time and patience to set up your pantry section just the way you wanted. But, here is a piece of advice – there is no need to do the entire pantry set up in one day. You can do that in a couple of days too. Just make sure you arrange the basic kitchen items that you would need in the first few days so you can at least prepare meals.
• Follow up with other rooms – Though there is no particular order in which you should unpack and re-arrange stuff. And we believe, everyone has a process to do it – what we may consider doing the first, might be considered at last by you and vice-versa. But, the sole idea behind the setup should be making the most frequently used spaces serviceable first, followed by the rest of the rooms or spaces. Now when you have organized your kitchen and bedroom, you can set up your bathroom, followed by the living room, and other spaces – your library, study, kids’ section, art station, home office, storeroom, guest room, basement, etc. And while you are at it, all you need to make sure is to tackle one place at a time, organize properly, keep things within access, and clean up your spaces regularly.

Well, you have pulled off the majority of your struggle pretty well, good job, but there are still quite a few countable things left to be done, which if not planned out well cannot be worked out efficiently.
