Self Storage Tip: Use Self Storage To Declutter Your Life


Make a commitment to get your home in order.  Use self-storage to declutter your home. Self storage is a low cost solution to protect your valuables until you need them. 

Say goodbye to the mess, and hello to more space.

Let’s get started! Decide what you plan to keep. What to trash. And things to sell or donate.


  1. Place these items in self storage, where they will be protected from damage or loss.
    •   Season items like holiday ornaments, winter clothes, summer clothes, patio furniture, the kayak and the beach umbrella can be safely stowed during the off season.
    •   Motorcycles, snowmobiles, and lawnmowers all can be stowed away to create more space at home.
    • Family heirlooms such as baby pictures, special toys or beloved albums that you can’t part with can be placed in storage.
    •   Records & Files: Bills, medical records, legal documents and important files that can’t be shredded or discarded can be stowed in storage.
  2.   Don’t hang on to anything that is broken, or is riddled with stains and holes.  Rule of thumb is if you wouldn’t gift it to a friend, it’s time to trash it.
  3.   Is it of any value? Apply the six month rule to guide you when decluttering. If you haven’t used something for 6 months, ask yourself, do I really need this? Free up space at home, sell it or donate it to charity.
  4.   Make a plan, organize one room at a time. Don’t get overwhelmed with decluttering your home. Tackle one room at a time. Don’t try and take on the whole house, pace yourself this is going to take some time. Not to worry, create a time table with time off for fun and friends so that this project will be painless.

      Self Storage Tip: Don’t make the mistake of buying bins and containers before decluttering— organize what is going to be put in storage first and then secure the containers needed to safely stow away your valuables. 
  5.   Look for a storage facility that is convenient, clean, and is easy to access.. Drive up, get what you need and get back to what’s important.

Decluttering your home will improve your sense of wellbeing as well as your quality of life.
