For this guide, we’ll be focusing on the 2013 chapter of Unpacking. Here’s what you need to know about where to place every item in this Unpacking section.

The 2013 chapter is where you’ll begin seeing more than five boxes to unpack in a room. That being said, it’s always best to start by laying items on the floor and mapping where each category of objects should go. For one, pots and pans can be thrown into the cupboards underneath the sink, along with the red strainer. You will be left with one last pan, which should be placed on the shelves near the fridge.

Continue with objects that should be on the sink counter, such as the microwave and toaster being in front of the electrical outlet. Then, place various soaps and scrubbing tools around the sink itself. As shown above, drag the menorah, its candles, and a roll of paper towels on top of the fridge.

Once that’s done, set each of the four brown coasters on the dining table and all the magnets onto the fridge. With some room left over, also place the whiteboard on the refrigerator. To finish the room, put all utensils and cooking tools in the drawers, while all other remaining items should be set on the shelves.

As with previous levels, feel free to hang or fold your clothes into the bedroom closet on the left. Although, socks and bras will need to be placed into the purple bins, with each pair of shoes sitting on the floor to the right. As for the nearby nightstand, place the blue and orange lockbox underneath and the purple diary in one of its drawers.

The purple purse and yoga mat found in the last box can be shoved underneath the bed, and any stuffed animals in the house should be on top. With these out of the way, drag the rest of the items in the bedroom onto the nightstand.

Unpacking the living room

The living room will be the first location in the game where players manage seven boxes. Luckily, most items will be placed on the tall bookshelf, such as all books, games, controllers, and toys. However, the Wii, Wii remote, and cable box need to be positioned facing forward on the TV stand.

Additionally, 2013 introduces items such as the umbrella, cane, and lamp. The umbrella and cane will go into the basket near the TV stand, and the light must be set on the small wooden table. The last item to tackle should be the blue hand keychain. This can be attached to either of the walls in the room.

Unpacking the office

The office is the most straightforward room in the home, with several objects seen in previous levels awaiting you. All framed photos should be hung, and the three remaining drawers will need to be pinned to the board above the desk. The box of cords found underneath the desk will be stored in the white cabinet next to it with the wooden stand propped on top. Once each book is placed on the shelves, gather the rest of the items on the desk.

Unpacking the bathroom

Start off the bathroom boxes by unloading everything onto the floor, as this area is incredibly particular where each type of object is placed. Then fill each drawer with boxed items (such as band-aids and medications). Set these far back under the sink for those too large to fit. If done correctly, there should be one last drawer to place the hair iron in.

Next, focus your attention on each hanger attached to the walls. Drape the towels over the ones surrounding the sink and hang the scrubber below the shower head. One of the three toilet rolls will also be required on the rod next to the toilet. Then take the remaining two rolls and any other larger items still out, and put them below the sink.

As any decent human being should, continue by locating the pink fragrance spray and leave it above the toilet. To finish the chapter, set each everyday-use item, such as the soaps, clippers, brushes, and toothbrush, near the sink or in the medicine cabinet above.
