What better way to welcome 2017 than with a less cluttered home and a clean, tidy, organised space? Keeping your possessions safe, secure, 24 hours a day and 7 days a week in a storage unit may be the perfect way to remove junk and transfer belongings that are taking up valuable space in your home.
The new year is quickly approaching, 2016 is on its way out and it’s time to make resolutions and develop organisation in your home to begin your new year in the right way. As experts in cost-effective storage solutions, here at Your Store Exeter, we can help you achieve your goals with this handy guide on getting organised for 2017!
When possessions increase, our homes, unfortunately, do not grow in size. Like most of us, you’ve probably reached the end of the year with more acquired belongings, with Christmas decorations up to your knees, new gifts and unworn clothes – but now is the ideal time to re-focus.
Closets, garages, cupboards and drawers can easily become dumping grounds over the space of a year, and although you may not want to depart with or get rid of these items, you can rest assured that a self-storage unit will provide optimum security.
January is the perfect month to make some changes and have a huge spring clean, whether you’d like to donate some art to charity or store some valuable items – self-storage can make that decision easier. Whether it’s a temporary or permanent solution, a storage space will certainly assist you well with your decluttering operation. Out of sight, out of mind!
Sort by room
Whether you begin in the garage, the bedroom wardrobe or the ‘messy’ drawer in the kitchen (we’ve all got one!), starting with the most unorganised place is probably wise.
Labelled and numbered boxes will help you realise what needs to be thrown away, what can be kept in the home and what can be stored in a self-storage unit.
Your keep, delete and store categories will help you to immensely organise your home and life. There may be certain items that you’re holding on to, but that may take up too much space, these are the items that can be saved with self-storage, as they’ll be consistently secure, there whenever you need them and all at economic prices.
Once you’ve got your items ready to head to self-storage, it’s time to decide on the size of the unit you need. At Your Store Exeter, we offer a wide range of sizes suitable for your particular requirements. For example, if you only need to make room in your cupboards, you’ll require a small unit to ensure that you’re not paying for space that you’re not using.
As well as assisting with general organisation, self-storage units can additionally assist with a number of other life decisions..
As one of the most stressful events that one can go through, a self-storage unit certainly lightens the load of a house move, regardless of the size of your property. Whether you’re looking to sell your house and wish to make it more appealing by quickly removing clutter or you’re moving out of your existing property before heading to the new place, self-storage units are a brilliant temporary solution.
As one of the most popular new year’s resolutions, many people receive gym equipment to set up a home gym as a preference to joining a public exercise facility. If this is the case for you, renting a unit to store a range of belongings in order to convert a room in your home is the perfect option.
With enticing photos of beautiful places all over the world, more and more of us are getting itchy fit and catching the ‘travelling bug’. When you’re committed to paying rent or owning your home, it can be difficult to raise the money or leave your home behind for too long. With a self-storage unit, you can store some or all of your home possessions to empty your home while you’re away, or rent it out to gain a little extra income. The world can be your oyster in 2017!
