Now that the moving day has passed and all the nervousness and stress has been lifted it’s time to put things in order and start preparing for everyday life in your new house. All the changes might make your family members be nervous and especially if you’re moving with kids, it is important to reassure them again and sit down and talk to them about the good things of your move. Try following these after the moving day advice and get a glimpse at what awaits you after the moving day. Seeing yourself in a new house might pose some questions as to what to do next:
What are you to do after the moving day has past? What should you do first?
The first thing you should do after moving is to clean the areas that you are to use in the first few days, such as the bathroom and the kitchen. When packing for the move before, you must have set aside things that you need right after you move, such as cleaning supplies and other necessary items that are used daily.
After cleaning the kitchen make sure you place the minimum of items needed there such as a pot for boiling water or maybe some canned food, spices, a hand towel and the cleaning supplies.
Next place you should clean is the bathroom. There you should make sure you have the necessities such as toilet paper and towels along with soap, shampoo and even make-up and a hairdryer.
If you or your family has to go out the next day to school or work, make sure you have their clothes unpacked and prepared beforehand.
Also get out some essential bed sheets, pillows and blankets so you’ll be able to sleep comfortably in the new house from the start.
After all immediate necessities have been provided for, you should take a bit of time to calm down and get used to the new place.
Many people go in the new house and clean it out prior to moving in so if you did that half of your work is done.
Unpacking can be tiring and time consuming but if you’re doing it with more people it can be done faster then you’ve ever imagined. Therefore if you’re with the family, ask them to unpack their own stuff and then unpack together the items for the rest of the house.
The first rooms that should be unpacked depend on what you plans are for the next day but if you’re free you can start with unpacking some of the kids’ bedroom and the kitchen. Big appliances might not be installed for a couple of days so make sure you have something to eat that can be prepared fast and doesn’t need to be refrigerated.
Don’t get distressed about the amount of unpacking that needs to be done but instead just take it slowly, one day at a time and together with the help of you family, you’ll be done in a couple of days.
