I did a traveling gig for a while & moved a lot (not all my crap..was in executive housing which is not quite as glamorous as it sounds lol), but enough to become a pro at moving.
Label those boxes, not just the contents, but which room they go in (in biggest letters) so you can easily take it to that room. Master BR, BR 2, LR...etc. Put the big pieces of furniture right where you think you want them to be so you don't have to move them far to decorate your room. Men like to dump it right in the middle for some reason, so you wind up having to move it AGAIN.
Make sure the sheets, blankets, pillows, TP, towels, possibly supplies to clean the shower (germaphobic like me?), and shower curtain are handy. Set the bed up first so that you can unpack until you can hardly stand it anymore...shower with HOT water to loosen up those tired muscles, then fall into bed and sleep like the dead. You will SO love your bed that night
