- Try to have at least a sketchy floorplan of where you want those large furniture items to go. Because the bookcases came off the truck and were popped right into place, my sister and I were able to unpack her 30 boxes of books in a flash at the end of the day, creating an instant feeling of accomplishment as well as clearing a huge amount of floorspace.
First: the pre move checklist, including things like doing a spring clean, and measuring rooms/doors before attempting to bring in furniture. Then, the moving checklist for the weeks / days leading up to and including moving day - don't forget your change of address/utilities/internet! Finally: the cleaning checklist for as you move in. Its better to get it all over with and have a fresh start!
I'm off to unpack :) What would you unpack first?
