Moving gives you an opportunity to have a fresh start and get rid of any clutter you do not wish to bring into your new home. It is a great opportunity to use this clean slate to reorganize and curate your new home to cater to your needs.
Leave the clutter in the past where it belongs, or bring it to a storage unit. From extra toys in the garage to old clothing you may be holding onto, shifting items into a self-storage space will have you feeling lighter and less stressed about moving day.
Let us help you get those extra items off your hands by following these suggestions on how to reduce clutter in your home.
Chances are you have some extra items that you do not use all year ‘round that are being stored in your home. Save yourself the space in your new home by bringing any holiday decorations, bulky winter clothing, travel gear, or sports equipment to your personal storage unit.

While we may love to hold onto our parents’ hand me downs and keepsakes, sometimes we fail to realize how much space these items take up. Storing them in an attic or basement risks them being exposed to weather conditions that could ultimately cause damage. A temperature-controlled storage facility is the perfect place to preserve your valuable precious belongings.
If you are downsizing, bringing all your furniture may not be ideal. Maybe you are not ready to make the commitment to sell or giveaway these pieces, so why not store them away for future use. Items like dining room tables, extra chairs, or tables can always be easily relocated back into your home should you decide you need it.
If you are looking to live a clutter-free life in your new home then these steps will help you get there. And if you need help getting a storage unit, give us a call, we would love to get you information on your future unit!
