3 Ways a Storage Unit Can Help Declutter Your Home

Despite your best intentions, clutter can happen to all of us. It’s easy to let our possessions pile up over the years. When you finally get fed up of asking “Where did this come from?” or misplacing important objects in an increasingly crowded home, we can help. Renting a storage unit from Elite Self Storage can help you divest yourself of your belongings that are important, but not needed in your everyday life. Once you rent from us, you’ll be able to breath easy in your home again. Bumping into a piece of furniture you never plan to use can be a thing of the past. Here are a few ways that renting a storage unit can help you reduce clutter.

A Place For Your Family Heirlooms

As the years go by, you may collect some important mementos from family members or friends. You might not need to use them every day, but you don’t want to get rid of precious objects like that bookshelf your grandfather built himself or china that’s been passed down through generations. The problem is that these things are taking up so much space in your home that you don’t have room for the stuff you actually use! That’s when renting a storage unit can be a good idea. You may not need some of these precious possessions right now, but a storage unit can be a safe place to keep them until you do. Maybe you want to give your son or daughter a well-made piece of furniture when they move into their own place. Store objects like these with us and make your home more spacious. You can store them with peace of mind at Elite Self Storage because we use the latest and greatest security technology and protocols.

A Perfect Way to Store Seasonal Items

If you love to decorate for the holidays, you know that seasonal items can pile up pretty quickly. Halloween decorations, Christmas ornaments, Easter baskets, and the like can all end up taking up a lot of space in your home. And you only really need them once a year! If you rent a storage unit, you can have access to your seasonal items whenever you need them without cluttering up your home. This can also be a way of dealing with other equipment that you don’t need all year long. If your garage is full and unorganized, why not put your lawnmower and other yard equipment in a storage unit during the winter months? On that same note, the snow shovels and snow blower aren’t doing you much good in the summer. Make the most of your storage locker each season.

Figure Out What You Actually Need

A storage unit can also help you cut down on clutter even once you’ve moved things out of your home. As you go back to your unit to get the objects you need, you’ll eventually notice possessions that you never really think about or need to use now that they’re out of sight. You’ll be able to tell what items you actually need to keep and which you can sell, donate, or discard. For people dealing with clutter, there are many good reasons to rent a storage unit.
