"Open me first" boxes are a great idea.

Pick one or two boxes per room that should be the first to be opened in your new home and label them “Open Me First.” In those boxes, include items you will need immediately. Some examples of boxes to open first, and their contents, include: Kitchen ■ Aluminum foil / plastic wrap ■ Coffee maker, coffee, filters ■ Dish soap ■ Frying pan and spatula ■ Pet food and bowls ■ Scissors ■ Flatware, cups and plates Main Bathroom ■ Bath mat and towels ■ First-aid kit ■ Shampoo / toiletries ■ Shower curtain and rings ■ Hand soap ■ Toilet paper ■ Toothbrushes and toothpaste Tool Drawer ■ Duct tape ■ Flashlight ■ Phillips and flat-head screwdriver ■ Hammer ■ Level and picture hangers ■ Tape measure ■ Utility knife
