As we come to the end of January, it can feel like New Year’s resolutions are nothing but a memory despite all of our good intentions to make positive changes in our lives. However, one achievable and rewarding resolution is to declutter our living spaces.

The act of decluttering not only gives your home a refreshed look but also sets the stage for a more productive and organised year ahead. Take a look at our decluttering tips, brought to you by The Self Storage Company, and make the most of a clutter-free space.

Discover our tips for decluttering your home: 

Taking control over your living space doesn’t have to be complicated, starting the decluttering process can be the hardest step!  

Make a Plan, Buy Storage Boxes & Start Decluttering:

Start your decluttering journey by creating a plan. Identify the areas in your home that are cluttered and need attention. It helps if you work through your home one room at a time. Gather the necessary supplies, such as storage boxes and bubble wrap,  to help you organise and sort your belongings. 

When you start decluttering, you may benefit from separating your belongings into different sections, including what needs to stay in your home, what needs to be thrown away and what unwanted items can be sold or donated to a charity shop.

Tackle Long-Term Household Clutter:

Uncover the hidden treasures and deal with long-term clutter—items that have been stored out of sight for years. Be firm about letting go of what you no longer need. Consider digitising or repurposing special items to preserve memories without taking up physical space.

If you lack storage space in your home, a self-storage unit at The Self Storage Company can be a perfect, long-term solution. Even if you have additional storage space, such as a garage, you may struggle to keep it organised or easily accessed by your vehicle due to accumulated clutter. Here’s how to organise your garage with self-storage

Deal with Seasonal Items:

As you declutter, you’ll likely come across seasonal items like suitcases, holiday decorations, sports gear, and more. Instead of letting these items take up valuable space in your home, consider storing or in a convenient storage unit. Our seasonal storage service ensures easy accessibility when you need them without cluttering your living areas.

Address Everyday Clutter & Unwanted Items:

Take a closer look at everyday clutter such as clothes, shoes, old beauty products, and excess food. Recycle, donate, or sell items that you no longer use or need. Organise and neatly store the items you decide to keep, creating a more streamlined and efficient living space.

Experience the Benefits of a Decluttered Home:

A clutter-free  home not only feels larger but also makes it easier to find and enjoy the things you love. Consider taking your decluttering journey a step further by utilizing a self-storage unit from The Self Storage Company for additional storage space. This allows you to keep seasonal items safe and provides you with the flexibility to adapt your living space as your needs evolve.
