Don’t freak out! Keep it together and you’ll be OK!
All joking aside, there’s little more frustrating than getting to your new home and having to root from box to box to get things unpacked and set up. Thankfully there’s an easy way to avoid this conundrum: keep stuff that goes together, together.
Imagine you move from Chalmette to the CBD. You take this short ride and end up in the Central Business District – oh just look at your lovely new in-town apartment. Time to unpack. Oh wait – why is the bookshelf full of kitchen supplies? Why is the shower curtain wrapped around a mattress? Poor planning, that’s why!
Keep books near the bookshelf. Wrap the soap, shower brush, etc., in the shower curtain. Put the kitchen supplies all together. Roll up clothes and put them in the wardrobe drawers. Put your cleaning supplies together and pack them last, especially if you have to clean your old place before you move.
Taking this simple precaution against disorganization can reap untold hours in relaxation that would otherwise be spent wondering if you left all your sponges back in Chalmette. It’ll also save you from having those boxes cluttering up your new home any longer than necessary – you empty one out, set up all the stuff in it and get rid of it. No need to keep it full of books when you’ve just unpacked your bookcase!
There you go, now you’re ready to pack up and move within New Orleans or all the way to Thibodeaux! Happy trails!
