Choosing to unpack luggage is perhaps not the most exciting of jobs, and whether just arriving at your destination or arriving back home, it’s often a chore that gets put off. However, the thought of having to unpack luggage is much worse than the actual unpacking, so here we have brought together a few reasons why it might just make sense to get it out of the way!
1. Tidy up your room
Tidy room, tidy mind! You’ll feel so much better if the space you are in is tidy. By choosing to unpack luggage right away, you’ll keep your space clutter-free.
2. Avoid tripping hazards
The safety aspect of not unpacking your luggage is certainly something worth considering! Bulky suitcases on floors are an accident waiting to happen.
3. Feel like you’re on vacation
Choosing to unpack luggage right away, means you can get on with the fun stuff – enjoying your vacation. It can feel quite exciting to arrive at your accommodation, unpack your things and head out to explore the area in which you’re staying.
4. Living out of a suitcase isn’t fun
If you choose not to unpack luggage right away, you’ll find yourself living out of the suitcase during your vacation and not really feeling at home.
5. Find what you need easier without a suitcase
If your clothes are still packed and folded in a suitcase, finding what you need can be tricky. It is much easier if items are taken out immediately and stored using the closet and storage space available.
6. Store your dirty laundry
While away on vacation, having an unpacked suitcase from the start means you can gradually start re-packing it during your stay. Simply pack your dirty laundry as you go – simple.
7. Avoid wearing wrinkled and creased clothes
No doubt before you headed out on vacation, you made sure that your clothes were neatly ironed and packed. Leaving your clothes in the case can make them creased and wrinkled. On arrival, take out your clothes and hang them in the closets available. Nobody wants to do ironing on vacation…
8. Enjoy the space you’ve paid for
You’ve paid for your accommodation so use it to the full! If you’re living out of a suitcase, chances are that you’re not using the closets and dressers provided for you. You’ll feel much more at home, and less cluttered, if you simply unpack your luggage and use the space you’re entitled to!
9. Get your routine back
On returning home from vacation, it can be hard to get back into a daily routine. It helps to unpack luggage right away, as you’ll then be able to enjoy any remaining free time. Getting back into a routine quickly can also help to get over jetlag.
We think you’ll agree, that choosing to unpack luggage as soon as you arrive on vacation, and as soon as you get home, not only means you can enjoy your time away, but also settle quickly and easily when you return.
