Have you just arrived at your new house or condo and are exhausted? The task of unpacking remains, but who says you can’t be efficient and get it done at a faster pace? Here are four methods of unpacking, with each one having its own pros and cons.
Room by Room
This method of unpacking is great in smaller units such as condos. Once you’ve settled in at The Chuan Park, start by unpacking per room. You’d have to put the things in your kitchen or bedroom in their own boxes beforehand, so this will be nice and easy. As a general rule, lay out the important things in the bedroom, then the kitchen and the bathroom.
A staggered approach means you’ll open each box or pull up your list and determine which one to take out first. While packing, you can take inventory via a note-taking app or a simple notebook page for easy reference later on. The important ones are at the top or near them (label the boxes ‘this side up’) so you can pull them out faster. Do this process until all the boxes and empty and your house is set up.
Unpack as Needed
A laid-back and relaxed approach is to unpack on your own time and as you need the items. This will work only if you have a small amount of belongings and the house you’re moving has a small space. Start with the things you use on a daily basis, and the last items are decorative ones.
Labels and Planning
You can use technology to your advantage and unpack your things in a smart way. Label every box so you know which ones to pay attention to first, then map out a step-by-step plan so every action is efficient.
