These are trying times for sure, little things can seem overwhelming. During the Covid-19 quarantine, take this time to declutter and organize your home.
Many homes are faced with family moving back in. Those who can work remotely now need space while working from home. Make best use of this time and simplify your life.
Once you’ve sorted everything out, map out what goes where. Invariably there’s stuff that still holds sentimental value or no longer fits in. Consider putting it in self storage.
A self storage unit may just be the perfect solution to decluttering your home. Keep your valuables safe, dry, and secure. Find a storage facility that is clean, convenient and low cost to meet your needs.
Breakdown your belongings into four categories: records/documents, seasonal items, mementoes/heirlooms, and stuff that is either junk or can be sold.
Records / Documents
Bills and medical records and bills need to be either shredded, filed and stored. Tax records should be kept for 7 – 10 years and bank statements for at least 3 – 5 years.
File cabinets and boxes of paperwork can be organized safely in a storage unit rather than crammed in a garage or attic space where they may never be found when they are needed.
Sporting gear for winter and summer, patio furniture, winter clothes, holiday decorations and boy toys like Motorcycles, boats and four wheelers can be stored safely in a storage unit.
Mementos & Heirlooms
Wedding pictures, photos of the baby, special things we simply can’t part with can be kept safely protected in a storage unit.
Stuff to Sell
Some things no longer hold any value to use but may be treasure for others. If you can’t sell it for a profit then either donate it or junk it. You ultimately make the call.
Clearing away the clutter in your home will have a positive effect on your sense of wellbeing and quality of life. Now that you have all that new space you can make room of family or whatever else is important in your life.
