How Self Storage Can Help You Declutter

Decluttering can be a daunting task, requiring you to sort through stacks of clothing, sports equipment, seasonal decorations and more. To save time and your sanity, take these simple tips into consideration.

  • Use the 1-year rule
    It can be hard to let go of certain things, but if too many of these mementoes pile up, your home can become cluttered and chaotic. The 1-year rule is an easy way to let go of items you no longer need. Ask yourself if you’ve used it in the last year and if the answer is “No”, then it might be best to donate the item or give it to someone who will have a use for it.
  • Start with the biggest room
    If you have a big house, decluttering can get a bit out of hand and make your home look messier than when you started. To create some organisation, start with the biggest room that receives the most foot traffic and work your way through your house, tackling one room at a time.
  • Be smart with your storage
    Storing your items is a very important part of the decluttering process. You need to decide where everything will be placed, and if there is a shortage of space, you’ll need to think of a plan B. Whether buying multi-purpose furniture or renting a self storage unit, it’s important to store your excess goods in a safe place that is out of the way.

The Benefits Of Decluttering Your Space

A quick decluttering can have dozens of benefits, not only on your physical space but your mind as well. Simply sorting through your cupboard or garage will free up a huge amount of space and create a more productive, spacious and healthier environment in your home or office. Incorporating this into your routine can have a positive impact in the following ways:

  • Reduces stress and anxiety
    More stuff means more stress. Stacks of paperwork in the office or junk lying around the house can have an incredibly negative impact on your mental health, making you feel anxious and stressed. Decluttering your space will clear your mind and make your life feel more organised.
  • Easier to clean and organise
    With hoards of items piling up in every corner of your home or office, it can be impossible to keep any room clean and organised. A swift decluttering session will clear the space and allow you to dust, sweep and mop without any clutter getting in the way.
  • Boosts productivity and creativity
    Whether you work from home or manage an office space, having a clean and clutter-free space is key to being productive and working efficiently. A neat and organised space will save time, reduce errors and keep energy levels high. Decluttering your office could also free up tons of extra space, allowing you to downsize and cut your monthly expenses.
