How to Spend the First Night in Your New Home

October 19, 2020


A new home can mean new beginnings but can also be a bit overwhelming as you transition into a new place to call your own. To help, we put together some tips for enjoying the first night in your new home.

Pack a “First Night” Box

When packing up your belongings to move, it can be easy to forget about the essentials you’ll need the first night in your new home sweet home. To be sure you have everything you (and your family) need, pack up a “First Night” box to include essentials for the first few days in a new space. The bag or box can include toiletries, extra clothes, air mattresses with blankets or bedding, bath towels and shower curtains. Don’t forget to include basic kitchen items like utensils, trash bags and snacks to keep your energy up after a long day of moving boxes from one place to the next.

Organize Boxes Into Rooms

Not sure where to put all the boxes once you arrive to your new home? First, be sure all of your boxes are clearly labeled with either the name of the room it belongs to or type of items enclosed to ensure a seamless move with no missing items. Next, unload and sort boxes into each corresponding room as you bring them into the new space to start your move off organized and ready for unpacking (after a good night’s sleep, of course).

Enjoy Your First Night as a New Homeowner

Moving can be stressful, so take some time to relax and simply enjoy your new home with whomever you share it with. Take off the stress by ordering in dinner instead of cooking, even if it means sitting on the floor to enjoy. Overall, enjoy every milestone of being a homeowner including your first night in.
