Storage units are becoming an acceptable solution to many of our storage problems. A while ago we would pile our belongings into our garage or an attic where more often than not, it was a case of out of sight, out of mind, as most of us eventually had no idea what was stored in these spaces. We avoided these areas, and eventually when they were overflowing and impossible to access, we would have a massive spring clean and get rid of stuff. With the use of storage units, however, we can keep order in our lives, storing our excess belongings in a safe, secure facility.

Most people find this decluttering of areas in our homes difficult, as we all have a bit of a hoarder in us. Our homes have that room, attic, shed, or cupboard that is used as a junk room. But getting rid of this clutter will make our lives easier – we will be able to find things more easily as we won’t spend our time hunting for an item which eventually makes us run late for work or school, adding to the stress of the early morning rush. It will also be easier to keep our homes clean if we do not have stuff everywhere. So, decluttering your home may help destress your life, and we could all do with a little less stress.

Begin by Decluttering

Decluttering is not easy so don’t set yourself the impossible task of completing an entire house in a weekend, for example. Rather take a few weeks to clear out the clutter by following some simple steps.

  • Start with a small area, whether it is a chest of drawers or a corner of a room. This will not prove overwhelming and once you have successfully tackled it, it will hopefully act as motivation to carry on.
  • Create three piles for your items: Keep, Donate, Chuck. Work through your belongings and place them in the relevant piles. Take the two last ones to your favourite charity shop as soon as you can so that you are not tempted to change your mind.

When is Self Storage Useful

There is no motivation like a move to a new house or apartment to get tidying. This is the perfect time to hire a storage unit to pack your excess furniture and belongings into, especially if you are downsizing.

  • When you sell your house you want to get the highest possible price you can. One way of achieving this is to present your house in the best possible way. So instead of rooms with too much furniture, clutter on every surface, and your kitchen looking overcrowded with belongings, rather pack away your personal stuff and excess furniture and take it to a self storage facility. Buyers will be much more attracted to a clean, tidy, uncluttered home and this will show in the price they are prepared to pay for your house.
  • When you decide to redecorate or renovate your home, instead of working around your furniture and hoping that nothing gets wrecked or damaged by careless tradesmen and covered in dust and paint, rather pack your precious belongings away into a storage unit. The beauty of our self storage at Stop & Store Lowestoft is that you can hire a unit for even a month if that is all the time you need, but you can easily extend it if necessary.
  • If you lose a partner through death or divorce, this can often mean you need to downsize your home or even relocate. Instead of getting rid of your belongings in a hurry, rather take your time before making any hasty decisions which you may regret later, by putting them into storage.
