The day has finally come. You have tirelessly worked packing and organizing and cleaning your old home, and by utilizing a self storage in Etobicoke space you were able to be completely done and have all of the rooms cleaned before you left for the last time. Now that moving day is over and your tired friends and family have said their last goodbyes you can begin the best process of all. It is time to unpack.
Even though you are excited about the unpacking process, and setting up your new house it is best that you resist the temptation to just start randomly unpacking boxes. Just as there was a planning process to packing, so is there a process to be followed for unpacking.
First, before any boxes begin to be opened think about the furniture layout of the space, and get all of the furniture placed where you want it to go. This will not only give you move spaces to work off of, but you will avoid having to move larger furniture pieces around a room that is covered in halfway unpacked boxes and the contents of those boxes.
Once the furniture is in place, find the boxes that have “open first” written on them. These are boxes that contain items that are essential to setting up the room. these items will help in getting the room organized and the space ready for the rest of the boxes to unpack.
As the best that you can, try and place all of the items in the place where they will go. Taking an item from the box that you have gotten from your self storage in Etobicoke space and placing everything where it goes the first time will save you a considerable amount of time, compared to moving each item around six or seven times. While the unpacking process can help you set up the space, you also have to live in the space so if you really want to move something around go ahead and do it.
Remember in the frenzy of the unpacking process to be careful with scissors, box cutters, and knives. Now that your items have survives the packing process and have safely been moved out of the self storage in Etobicoke space and into your home you do not want to end up destroying your belongings on the last leg of the journey because you were over eager to unpack. Cut at an angle and don’t go too deep with the knife or scissors. Additionally use caution so as not to impale yourself on your own knife.
Lastly in the unpacking process remember to recycle. Recycle the cardboard boxes by placing them in the recycle trash or by giving the boxes that are still in good shape to someone else who is just starting out on the process of moving.
Most importantly remember to have fun with the unpacking process. Set up each room how you envisioned it and at the end of the process you will have a great new home.
