After our movers have dropped off all your furniture and boxes, you are probably feeling overwhelmed thinking about how you are going to get all of these things unpacked and organized. You just have to keep in mind that not everything has to be done at the same time. Here are some tips on how to stay motivated and organized while transitioning into your new home.
Take it One Room at a Time
If you attempt to unbox everything at once, you are going to feel submerged in clutter. It is better to just take on the task of unpacking one room at a time. You will start to feel accomplished when you walk into a room and see it completely settled in, compared to walking throughout the house and seeing items scattered all over.
Keep the Rewards Coming
Unpacking doesn’t have to be all work and no play. Setting rewards for yourself as you go can be a great way to take a break and relax from all your hard work. You can try out a new restaurant in your neighborhood or have a movie night as something to look forward to after unpacking and finishing up a room for the day. This can be an easy way to motivate yourself and rest up for the next task ahead of you.
Set Goals for Unpacking
Making a list and breaking up tasks into manageable goals can be a great way to keep yourself on schedule. It is a good idea to take care of the main living areas first, then putting other boxes with items not needed right away into storage to address at a later time. You could even try setting a date for an event such as a housewarming party or group gathering at your place, as a way to motivate yourself to get your goals knocked out before you have company over.
