Unpack Strategically

The first step to settling into your new home is unpacking strategically. Start by unpacking essential items, such as bedding, toiletries, and kitchen essentials, to make your home functional from day one. Then, prioritize unpacking room by room, focusing on high-traffic areas like the living room, kitchen, and bedrooms first. Take your time and don’t feel pressured to unpack everything at once.
