“Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful”
-The William Morris Project
Decluttering is all the rage these days, and for good reason– it is healthy for your soul! Often, we go by the misguided idea that we have to get rid of everything at once, but that can be an overwhelming and painful way to go about it. It can take years to accumulate a house full of belongings, so expecting it to go away in one afternoon is unrealistic. One way that can help you feel in control of your space is to use self-storage. You’ll be able to clear your mind of the stresses that come with clutter, but not feel the loss of items that you are attached to.
Self-storage is an ideal solution, but it can be problematic to shuffle things to a facility down the road or across town. A better way to do it is to work with a company that brings a storage container to your home and leaves it for you to fill at your own convenience. Instead of taking up an entire weekend (or more!) of driving back and forth to a self-storage facility, you can spend an hour here and there until you have finished. This also gives you the opportunity to better organize your items so that you can find what you need later. Another benefit is that if you relocate down the road, you can just call them to bring the storage container to your new address.
Self-storage containers are a great way to put items away that you do not want to donate, sell, or otherwise dispose of for sentimental reasons. They are also a great idea if you have a large task at hand, such as taking care of a house in an estate or putting everything you own in storage while you go overseas for charitable or military purposes.
