You’ve moved to Northwest Arkansas, now what? Unpacking and organizing tips
Updated: Nov 8, 2021
What a whirlwind! Not only did you find that perfect job – they interviewed you, loved you, and hired you. Next it was discovering what the Northwest Arkansas region had to offer, getting your geographic bearings, and finding the right location for a new home, new school district, and new commute times. In an incredibly short amount of time, you’re here. You’ve found the perfect home, motored across America, and now need to make sense of your truckload of belongings or rooms filled with cardboard boxes and black trash bags.
We at Southern Tradition Real Estate know first-hand how those initial moments in a new place can be overwhelming, so we’ve compiled a few tips to help with move-in day!
Clean Before You Convene!
There is no better time to clean your house than when it’s completely empty and easy to navigate. Carpets, floors, bathtubs, sinks, cabinets – even walls – when scrubbed help you bring a fresh scent to your new home and sense of calm to your day.
Place Your Large Furniture First
When you move into a new home, the right furniture placement is everything. And this is easiest to do when you’re not tripping over boxes and bags or readjusting all the items you just moved in five minutes ago. Take the time now to get your tables, beds, chairs, couches, and dressers in the exact locations and arrangements that makes you happiest before tackling the smaller items.
Find Your Essentials Box And Unpack It
An essentials box is basically filled your go-to items that you don’t want to be without that first night – toiletries, a change of clothes, snacks, medicine, bottles of water. It can be a huge relief to have your essentials – such as paper plates, phone chargers, and trash bags – at the ready on moving day.
Consider Using A Professional Service To Help
One of the best things you can do for your mental health – and your back! – on moving day is hire professionals to handle unpacking and organizing for you. The Organizer Chicks of Northwest Arkansas has become an essential unloading and home organizing service among newly moved executives and vendors at companies such as Walmart, Tyson Foods, and JB Hunt. Among the services the Organizer Chicks provide are: unpacking, in-home organization, discarding and donating, room refreshers, home-staging, wardrobe editing and personal style, pantry editing, holiday decorating, shopping for supplies, and automobile organizing.
