When springtime comes and the first buds appear, we may start to feel now is the time to finally sort out all the clutter in our home. Every year, the same story…This year I’m going to do it properly, this time I will leave no box unemptied, no cupboard not sorted, no loft unexamined. Well, why not go for it! Spring clean like a neat-seeking ninja. We have listed a few helpful hints below that may well help you to finally give your home a brand-new look.
Set a deadline
One of the best ways of succeeding in any task is to set deadlines and stick to them. Mark a date in your diary to have everything done or set small deadlines for each room. You could even promise yourself a treat if you finish the task by the deadline.
For example, you could treat yourself to your favourite takeaway if you have the spare room sorted by next Saturday. Have an empty box and promise yourself that it will be full of unwanted items by the end of tomorrow.
When you look around the room, you may have a picture in your head of how you want the room to look like. But the large corner unit has some sentimental memory or the guitar in the corner reminds you of your teenage years.
In order to declutter successfully and achieve that new look, these may have to go. If you’re not ready to part with them completely then you could always store them with us in one of our Self storage units. We’d come to you and take the items away. You never know, in a few years’ time you may have moved and there may be plenty of room for these larger items.
Take stock of each item in your rooms and decide which will help you to achieve your dream home and which you may want to part with.
You could separate each item into the good and bad:
–The good would be items you definitely want to keep. These would be items that would remain in your home or may be stored away in the garage or in order to keep clutter down you could use one of our units. These items may come in handy in the future and by storing them you won’t have to replace them when they are needed.
–The bad are the items you really don’t want or need. These may be cluttering your kitchen, bedroom or taking up valuable storage space. You could store these items with us if you feel you may need them in the future. Otherwise, it is time to let these items go. Either bin them, recycle them or donate them to charity.
Store away those winter wonders
Spring may have sprung and you maybe in full swing cleaning, clearing and sorting. But there are still all those Christmas decorations, the Christmas tree and all your heavy winter clothing.
These items won’t be need for a while, hopefully, so in the meantime, if you’re trying to achieve that brand new look for your home, then consider storing these items with us. We’ll take care of them and keep them safe until Jack Frost returns.
