Packing and MovingBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

Moving to Little Rock is both exciting and tiring! Along with looking after yourself throughout the move, there are actually things you can do to make unpacking and moving into your new place, less stressful.

Given that moving is often monotonous as well as bland, music is a wonderful strategy to keep enthusiastic and concentrated. It can even improve your frame of mind so think about having a stereo or even tv set up so that you can perform to the sound of your favorite music or have a Wireless speaker available to connect to your cell phone.

Preparing and Organizing Remain Essential

Packing carefully may well considerably cut down on stresses and also headaches as you reach your new residence. Pack an "essentials" box (or even a couple) containing items you need immediately at your new place. This box ought to include items like:

· Bathroom towels.

· Toiletries.

· Sheets/blankets.

· Essential cooking accessories.

· A few glasses, dishes, bowls (alternatively, you can prefer to order out or have non-perishable things to eat on your first evening).

By doing this once you arrive at the new house in Little Rock, you will have all you need to get through the first overnight.

Additionally, make sure to label each carton with which room it should go into when it arrives. By doing this you won't have to blindly open cartons unsure of what is inside or sift through countless cartons to find something you need.

You can even have already a sense of the place that the furnishings are to go. Thinking about precisely where each piece will go ahead of the move can speed up the job and help you to remain organized and centered on the remainder of the unpacking.

Home office

When you have a home office, you may need to unpack these things initially to remain on top of your business. If you happen to be a work-from-home individual, clearly you need to have your working environment unpacked, sorted out, and operational so that you don't fall behind.

Put together the Furniture

Moving day in Little Rock is often tiring and you will in all likelihood be happy to crawl into your bed that initial night. This is why putting together and making your bed(s) is an excellent start before unpacking boxes.

You are not going to want to need to do it after you've invested the entire day unpacking cartons and bags as well as setting up. The good news is that if you have hired a professional moving company, they will likely assemble the beds for you.

Unpack the Kitchen

Once you have the beds constructed, your kitchen is regarded as the logical place to begin unpacking. Since the kitchen is regarded as the heart of the home, getting your cabinets, cupboards, and appliances all unpacked and arranged will help you move into your new home.

If you have an eat-in kitchen area, you'll likely also have a table which will help you unpack in a more structured way.

Attend to the Bathroom

When you expend hours on end unpacking and setting up, you will most probably want to take a shower or sit in a calming bath. Your "essentials" box will include the toiletries, shower gel, shampoos, medications, along with other things that are necessary for the bathroom.

Having the bathroom and kitchen unpacked can make unpacking the rest of your belongings easier.

Go on to the Bedrooms

Since the bedroom furniture is already in place, the bedrooms ought to be the next to unbox. When you have packed the bedding in clear plastic bags or bins, it'll be easier to spot which bed sheets belong to which bedroom. Conversely, write the particular person's bedroom on the box right after packing it to make it simpler.

Unpack the Living and Dining Rooms

With a little luck, you'll have your household furniture in place which can make unpacking everything else less complicated. Don't be concerned with regards to decorative things including wall-hangings or knick-knackery until all of the crucial things are unpacked.


Seasonal things like holiday decor or items that you rarely make use of might be unpacked last. These things will often belong in an attic, cellar, storage space, or garage.

As with packing, unpacking is made less complicated with preparation and organization. Being orderly concerning the approach will assist you to ensure you enjoy your new house in Little Rock as gracefully and rapidly as is feasible.
