As summer winds down, you may find your home a little worse for the wear. Spending more time outside or away on vacation makes it difficult to keep on top of organizational chores. But when the kids head back to school, the majority of us will return to our normal routine. This makes it a great time to organize your house by eliminating clutter.
Whether you have a few months of neglect or years of accumulation, we can help! Did you know a self-storage unit is a great way to keep your home clutter-free? Plus, it keeps your possessions safe, dry, and protected until you need them.
To get started, make an inventory of non-essential items taking up space in your home and separate them into 4 categories: records, keepsakes, seasonal, junk/sell.
- Records: This includes financial documents, medical records, and home or vehicle documents. By keeping them in an organized space inside a storage unit, you’ll know exactly where they are at all times and free up valuable space in your home.
- Keepsakes: More personal items such as old photos, school memories, family heirlooms, antiques, and furniture you may use later on or wish to pass down are great candidates for self-storage units.
- Seasonal: Many of the items taking up space in your closets, basement, or attic aren’t used all year long. This includes seasonal wardrobes, holiday decorations, sporting gear, and lawn equipment. These can be temporarily moved to a storage unit until needed.
- Junk/Sell: This last category includes everything else. Some you’ll want to donate, some you can sell, and some may be ready for the trash heap. While most of these items won’t need self-storage, you can hold those for sale in a unit until you find a buyer.
