Regardless if you've just finalized a long distance move
or a local move to Houston
, you’ve gone through the operation of transferring all of your items from your old house, and now you’re looking at an entire pile of boxes and bags post move here in Houston. Well, don’t commence unpacking just yet! There are a number of steps that you can do that’ll create a better post-move experience. So before you remove the first bit of tape from your boxes, examine these few pointers to save some time and stress.
- Take the time to clean and paint before you begin unpacking your things. It’s a lot easier to wipe down the baseboards, vacuum the floors, and remove any errant spider webs before taking out your pictures, shelves, and other decorations.
- After you’ve got your walls and floors cleaned up and in good condition, spread your boxes to their proper room. Start unpacking one room at a time to help keep things focused and organized. It will also help keep you from feeling overpowered by the amount of work you have in front of you.
- After you’ve moved and you’re starting the unpacking process, you’re probably going to note that you brought some stuff with you that you really don’t have a spot for. This occurs with everyone regardless of how much clutter they try to cut down on. Even people who have had garage sales prior to their move will always end up with a few things they don’t need or want. Go ahead and scrounge these items up and present them to a local charity.
By taking a bit of time to organize yourself after your local move
or interstate move to Houston,
you’ll end up with a much calmer and easier time. And as everyone knows, the less stress you have throughout a move the better. There are so many moving parts that you’ll be grateful to have some order. And if you want an incredibly organized residential move
