Wow, time flies. It is hard to believe that summer is over and you have already moved into your new Fort Collins apartment near CSU. If you haven’t already moved into your new apartment, check out our last blog where we discussed some helpful tips and tricks that might make your move a little easier. In today’s blog post, your source for “high-quality” Colorado State University off-campus housing, the Landmark Apartments, will be discussing the most efficient way to unpack and settle into your new home!
Set Up Your Bed
The first thing that should always be done when moving into a new home is to set up your bed — after all, you will need a place to sleep regardless of how far into unpacking that you get during your first day. Additionally, it is likely that your bed is the largest piece of furniture in your home, making it prudent to move it while you still have moving help!
Take A Crack At The Kitchen
Next, it is important that you at least begin to unpack the kitchen boxes. When packing up your old house it is always a good idea to put all of the essentials in a single box (and to mark it, of course) to ensure that the first night in your new Fort Collins student apartment doesn’t involve frantically looking for plates and silverware.
Unpack Your Bathroom
Once the kitchen essentials are unpacked, move on to the bathroom and unpack all of your essentials. Why should you move on to the bathroom before finishing the kitchen? The answer is quite simple — not brushing your teeth is gross. Additionally, unpacking little by little in each room can keep you from becoming overwhelmed or annoyed.
Unpack Your Closet
Arguably the easiest of all unpacking is that of unpacking your clothes, as they are all going to one of two places — the dresser or the closet. By unpacking your clothes fairly early on in the unpacking process, you can free up some extra floor space in your new apartment in Fort Collins near CSU, making it much easier to move around as you unpack other boxes.
Move Back To The Kitchen & Bathroom
Now, it is time for you to move back to the rest of the apartment and finish the unpacking that you had previously started. As you do so, it is important to think of ways that you can optimize the space that you have, making it more efficient than your prior living accommodations were. Additionally, don’t do it all alone! Unless you live in one of the various studio apartments in Fort Collins, it is important to make sure that your roommates help you unpack the common areas.
