Unpacking Tips: Getting Your New Home Ready for the Holidays

Whether you have just moved to a new home or are planning a move for the next few weeks, having a happy home for the holidays is what makes them worth celebrating. Keep reading for unpacking tips!


Here are some unpacking tips to help you settle in as quickly as possible.


  1. Essentials First

Tackle all of your everyday items right off the bat: toiletries, bed sheets, and coffee makers are some important items that should be prioritized

  1. Stay Organized

Unpack one room at a time. This will prevent you from getting easily overwhelmed by clutter or distractions.

  1. Prioritize Personal Items

Objects such as framed pictures, decorations, and knick-knacks may not feel essential to unpack early on, but they will certainly make your new house feel more like a home.

  1. Put up Holiday Decorations

Whether it’s a stuffed animal turkey, a Christmas tree, or a menorah, it’s nice to have a little something to remind you of the time of year.

  1. Leave Utility Areas for Last

The garage, shed, basement, and attic should be the last areas that you unpack. Make your house feel like a home by focusing on bedrooms and common areas first.


The holiday season is about family, friends, and home. If you have just moved, congratulations! And warm holiday wishes in your new place. If you have a move to plan on the horizon, contact Carey Moving and Storage for all of your local, long distance, and international moving needs.
