Whether you've just finalized a long distance move
or a local move to Oklahoma City
, you’ve gone through the procedure of transporting all of your possessions from your old place, and now you’re staring down a large stack of boxes and bags post move here in Oklahoma City. Well, don’t start unpacking quite yet! There are a variety of steps that you can do that’ll make your post-moving experience a lot better. So before you remove the first bit of tape from your cartons, study these few tricks to save some time and stress.
- Take the time to clean and paint before you begin unpacking your things. It’s a lot easier to dust the baseboards, vacuum the carpets, and remove any errant cobwebs before taking out your pictures, shelves, and other decorations.
- After you’ve got your walls and floors cleaned up and in good condition, distribute your boxes to their destination. Begin unpacking one room at a time to help maintain focus and organization. It will also help keep you from feeling run over by the amount of work you have in front of you.
- After you’ve moved and you’re starting the unpacking process, you’re probably going to observe that you brought some objects with you that you really don’t need anymore. This occurs with everyone regardless of how much clutter they try to get rid of. Even people who have had garage sales prior to their move will regularly end up with a few items they don’t have room for. Go ahead and collect these items up and give them to a local charity.
By taking a tiny amount of time to organize yourself after your local move
or interstate move to Oklahoma City,
you’ll end up with a much calmer and easier time. And as everyone knows, the lower stress you have throughout a move the better. There are so many moving parts that you’ll be grateful to have some order. And if you want a very organized residential move
