Spring is around the corner and with the current COVID restrictions in place, now is a great time to attack the clutter in your home and get organised. Clutter is anything you are keeping that doesn’t add value to your life. Decluttering is all about making room in your home for the things that truly matter.
So why declutter?
Decluttering frees up extra space in the home that was not there before. It is also a well-known fact that organising, and decluttering relieves stress for many people by providing a sense of control and accomplishment.
There can be more specific ways to avoid clutter and here is how a self-storage unit can really help.
Have you considered storing out of season clothing, sporting gear or your bulky Christmas decorations in the periods that you are not using them?
Christmas lasts for 4 weeks; a sports season is generally only 8-9 months of the year you can store bulky equipment for four months and free up that space at home. Pack away everything from a golf clubs to a canoe until the sun comes out in the summer.
So many of us are guilty of using the spare room to store items. It is time to reclaim that room and turn it into a more useful space.
What can I store in Self Storage?
Today, you can put almost anything into self-storage. You can leave for long or short periods and access it whenever you want. We can even provide you with boxes, packaging, and protectors to help protect your items.
What are the tips for great storage?
The 2 essential tips for storage are:
1. Store by category. i.e., Never lose another anything again. Keys go in the key’s drawer, cables in the cables box and so on.
2. Store belongings standing upright. Do not put things on top of each other so you cannot see what is at the bottom of the pile, store vertically.
To this you can also add some useful rules that are great to live by when organising and storing.
Conduct a big clear out. Set aside some time to tackle your storage issues. This is a big job so give it the time it deserves.
Discard then store: Once you have decided what to discard, you can then decide where to store.
Start with the easy part: If you have an emotional attachment to something it will be difficult to get rid of it. Start by discarding old clothes and books and leave the mementos to the end.
Get rid of paper: This one can be difficult. You need to throw away old bills, credit card statements and payslips. The only thing you need to keep are contracts and insurance policies.
