You can heave a sigh of relief now that all your family’s possessions have arrived safely at your new home. But that’s what you expected when you hired professional Minneapolis movers. Now comes the unenviable task of unpacking everything so you have a nice place to live. Check out these tips for getting the job done quickly and efficiently.

Start with the bathroom.

One room that everyone will want to use right away is the bathroom, especially if you had to drive a long way to get your new place. You’ll need to use the toilet, wash your hands in the sink, and take a shower after a long day of moving. If you have several bathrooms, set all of them up right away so you’re not all crowding into one facility. Unpack soap, shampoo, conditioner, toilet paper, towels, and bathrobes. Make sure any essential medications are also easily available in the medicine cabinet.

Keep the kids safe

You can’t have the little ones running about when you have home movers from Minneapolis lugging heavy furniture into your new abode. So confine the kids to their rooms with a box of their favorite toys. Older children can start unpacking their own stuff, particularly if you allow them to decorate their areas themselves. But unpack their spaces as soon as you can so they have a place in which to stay out of the way.

Set up your master bedroom

You and your spouse are ultimately responsible for the success of this new home. So you need a place to which you can retreat at the end of the day or any time you need to de-stress. Unpack your master bedroom including bedding, linen, furniture, clothing, make-up, and furniture. You’ll be able to have a good night’s sleep after a tiring endeavor and be able to face another day of unpacking with renewed purpose and energy.

Save the kitchen for last

Conventional wisdom holds that you should unpack the kitchen first so you can prepare meals as soon as possible. But will you really be in the mood to cook after a whole day of lugging boxes and accessories around? The kitchen is also often the most complex room of the home, since it deals with perishable food, cleaning supplies, small electric, sharp utensils, and delicate plates. Save this room for last since you can always go to a restaurant or order takeout when you’re hungry. (But put any perishables in the fridge as soon as possible.) If you need a place to eat your takeout food, set up the kitchen or dining table but rely on disposable plates and utensils, so you don’t have any washing up to do.
