Your Guide to Unpacking

Make Unpacking a Breeze

Unpacking may seem easy, but it can quickly become overwhelming. Between sorting through boxes and trying to figure out where everything goes, it can be hard to know where to start. The Go Mini's team is here with a few tips on how to streamline your unpacking process after a move and get settled into your new space in no time!

Packing Materials

Before you start, create a designated space for your packing materials to go as you unpack boxes. Have garbage bags ready for paper and bubble wrap, and a utility knife handy for breaking down boxes.

This will keep from overwhelming your new home with piles of cardboard, plastic, and paper! Once you’ve finished unpacking, be sure to recycle any materials you can!

The Essentials

Start by unpacking the essentials first - things like clothes, toiletries, and bedding. This will help you feel more comfortable in your new space and make day to day tasks a little easier.

Go Room by Room

Next, focus on unpacking one room at a time. This will help you stay organized and avoid feeling overwhelmed by the amount of work that needs to be done. If a box has an item that is meant for another room, simply put it back in a designated box until it can be put in its proper place.

Take Your Time

Finally, don’t try to rush yourself. Unpacking can be a lengthy process, but it's important to take the time to do it right in order to have an organized, clean start to life in your new home.

If you find that all of your belongings aren’t fitting in your new home, consider renting secure storage from Go Mini's Franchising, LLC.! We’ll keep your items safe until you’re ready to use them again.
