Declutter and Organize: The Ultimate Guide to Self Storage Solutions

Decluttering is made easier with a storage unit

In the fast-paced rhythm of everyday life, maintaining a clutter-free home can be quite a challenge. Yet, the secret to effective home organisation lies in the strategic use of self storage units. In this article, we'll delve into the benefits of decluttering and storage, providing valuable insights on how self storage units can be your ultimate ally in achieving a well-organised living space.

Decluttering and Storage

Decluttering isn't just about creating physical space; it's also about enhancing mental clarity and overall well-being. Pairing decluttering efforts with storage solutions proves to be a game-changer. By renting a storage unit, you can store seasonal items, sentimental belongings, or items that you don't frequently use, freeing up valuable space in your home.

Opting for a self-storage unit brings a multitude of benefits in your decluttering journey. Storage facilities offer a secure and convenient way to store items that are taking up valuable space in your home. A storage unit provides a dedicated space for your belongings without compromising your living space. The added security measures, such as surveillance cameras and access controls, ensure that your possessions remain safe. By incorporating a self-storage unit into your decluttering strategy, you not only create a more organized living space but also gain peace of mind knowing your possessions are secure and easily accessible whenever you need them.

Organising with Storage Units

When you first tackle decluttering, it can be quite daunting. But, as declutter expert, Marie Kondo suggests: "tidy and organise by category and not by location, to avoid a never ending cycle of tidying and organising."

The categories in her KonMari Method™ include clothes, books, papers, miscellaneous items and then sentimental items, working in this order as the most efficient and effective way to start decluttering.

A similar principle applies to using a storage unit. Consider categorising and labelling your belongings and allocating specific sections within the storage unit for each category. This ensures easy access and retrieval when needed. Invest in shelving units and storage bins to maximise the use of space within the unit.

Storage for Decluttering

When embarking on a decluttering journey, it's essential to assess your storage needs. A self storage unit acts as an extension of your home, allowing you to keep cherished items without sacrificing the functionality of your living space. This reduction in clutter not only enhances the visual appeal of your living space but also contributes to a more relaxed and stress-free environment. Evaluate the size of the storage unit based on the items you plan to store, ensuring you choose one that accommodates your needs.

If you need assistance to calculate the best size storage unit to suit your needs, Rent a Space has some handy "what fits in" short videos on Vimeo illustrating what items can fit into various size units, ranging from lockers, cupboards, closets, all the way up to oversize garages.

Effective Home Decluttering Tips

  • Prioritise Items: Begin by identifying items you use frequently and those that hold sentimental value. Keep these accessible in your home while utilizing storage units for less frequently used items.

  • Seasonal Rotation: Store seasonal items, such as winter clothes or holiday decorations, in your storage unit during off-seasons to create more space at home.

  • Labelling and Inventory: Maintain an inventory of items stored in your unit and use clear labels on boxes. This makes it easier to locate specific items when needed.

  1. Assessment: Evaluate each room and identify items to keep, donate, or store in a self storage unit.

  2. Sort and Categorise: Group similar items together to streamline the organization process.

  3. Storage Solutions: Invest in storage bins, shelves, and furniture with built-in storage options to make the most of your available space. Keeping your contents in labelled boxes will help save you time when you need it.

  4. Donate or Dispose: Properly dispose of items that are damaged or beyond use, and donate items that can benefit others. Take your time going through your wardrobe for anything that could be stored or donated as well - this will save you time from having to reorganise and declutter your wardrobe down the line.

  5. Create a Maintenance Plan: Regularly revisit your decluttering efforts to ensure a consistently organized living space.
