Both times we’ve moved, I’ve made a big effort to get boxes unpacked as quickly as possible.
I find it hard to feel like I’m at home when I’m staring at cardboard and newspaper that once wrapped breakables. And if I don’t feel comfortable in my environment, I get frustrated rather quickly.
But that’ just me. 😉
With our last move, I decided to keep all of our boxes in the guest room, and one by one, I was able to make them disappear over our first few days in the space.
Some people will find other ways to begin settling in, but for me, unpacking is one of the quickest ways to start really enjoying new home.
