So, how can you make the UNpacking process as quick and painless as possible? Here are some unpacking tips from The Spruce: The best way to attack unpacking is with a plan. Before you start opening boxes, make sure that you have organized boxes by putting them in their correct destination. Then, start with the boxes of things that you will need the soonest, such as toiletries and clothing that you will be wearing soon. Once you’ve unpacked the immediate necessities, the first room that you should tackle is your kitchen, as you can’t put off cooking and eating for very long. Next, unpack the bedrooms, starting with the linens and putting together the beds. You can hold off on unpacking all of your clothes until a later time. After your bedrooms, unpack your bathrooms. After you’ve unpacked your rooms, start putting together your furniture. Once furniture is put together, you can start thinking about where to put up all...

Moving and packing requires a lot of materials, such as boxes, tape, newspapers, packing peanuts, etc. Fortunately, there are several ways that you can make your moving experience more eco-friendly. Here are some green moving tips from Advance Disposal: One of the moving items that you will be using the most are cardboard boxes. You can make your move more eco-friendly in two ways when it comes to the boxes you use. First, you can recycle boxes by asking local businesses to give you theirs instead of throwing them out. Secondly, you can then turn around and give those boxes to someone else who needs them once you are done with your move. Instead of wasting tons of paper to pack your fragile items, you can use other items that you were already going to pack anyways. For example, you can use your linens, clothing, and towels to protect fragile items. This both saves paper from being wasted and also helps you to pack multiple items at once. As you begin packing, start setting aside items that you don’t want to bring with you on the move. Then, once you have collected everything you no longer need, you can donate these items to a local...

The spring is one of the most popular times of year for people to move, and there are numerous reasons why. The main reason is the temperate weather that spring offers and the benefits that come from this nice weather. With the sun finally coming out after a cold winter, people are more eager to get outside and enjoy the weather. This makes spring a peak season for the real estate market. Not only are people feeling more cheerful, they are also more willing to get out and about to browse homes on the market. So, if you’re planning to move, it’s a great time to find a home as well as to put your own home on the market. Spring is also an ideal time to move for those with families. It gives you time to look into schools in your new area and prepare for the school year before fall comes. Moving in the spring also gives your children time to unpack and adjust before they have to begin going to a new school. When it comes to moving itself, the springtime offers the best weather to do so. With days that are warm, but not scorching hot, it’s the ideal temperature to...
