T Square Moving Tip: Create An Unpacking Kit

Creating a simple unpacking kit will make your move easier and more successful!

Picture this- you arrive at your new home and T Square Movers has just finished safely unloading all your items and personal belongings. The last 30 days has been go, go, go; and today you have been running nonstop for 8-9 hours. Now what? Your first instinct may be to start cleaning, but all of your cleaning supplies are packed away in one of the thousand boxes laying around. So, a few days before the big move, you will want to create an unpacking box with all the essentials for the day/night. Trust me… it will come in super handy.

After moving multiple times and not following this tip, I quickly realized the importance of prepping a box of essentials to get through that first day or two. So, let’s create one together!
First, create a simple checklist of all of the items you’ll crave immediate access to upon arriving in your new home. Here is an example of what one looks like for my home.

Remember: this is only a box of essentials to get you by while you unpack for the first day or two. There is no need to buy a huge rubbermaid tote and camp out in it for an entire week. ?
