Self Storage – Getting Organized
Getting Organized for the New Year
It’s 2020! A new year, a new decade, and a new opportunity to make some New Year’s resolutions to make some improvements because who doesn’t love a fresh start?
Whether you live in a house or an apartment, we all could use some extra space, especially living in the tri-state area. Unless you are a minimalist with little to no furniture, clothing or other items, chances are you have things that are taking up a decent amount of space in your home. Every once in a while, it is nice to hit the reset button and get organized!
Now for the fun part, how do you actually get started on becoming more organized this year?
It is easy to become overwhelmed and try to avoid having to take that deep dive into determining what is actually being used versus what is just occupying space in your home. You think about how much other stuff you have to do, or where will things go once you start sorting through your belongings.
Stop right now and create a plan first! Carving out some time on the weekend to sort through your belongings is a great way to start. As you go through your belongings, consider making the following three piles:
1) Things you want to keep – This should be the easy part. Set aside the items that you absolutely cannot live without, which are things that you typically use on a daily basis.
2) Things you want to give to charity or throw away – Now this is when the narrowing down process really begins. Chances are you have some clothes and shoes that you have not worn in a month, so that would be perfect for GoodWill, which we can help you with! We partnered with GoodWill so that if you use our StorageBlue NOW service, we can bring your items to storage and drop off any donated items to GoodWill.
3) Things you want to put in storage – All of those wonderful items that you do not quite have space for can come to us! With units in various different sizes, we can certainly find the perfect space for your belongings.
The sooner you begin getting organized, the better! You will not believe how much it can help set the tone to have a more neat, organized and clutter-free year!
