As the holiday season kicks into high gear, we wouldn’t blame you if clutter in your house is at an all-time high. Between decorations, parties, and exchanging gifts, your house is likely getting more chaotic and full as you have less and less time to tidy. Even once you do find the time, though, you might discover that there is simply no more room for all this stuff!
If this describes you, you may want to consider decluttering your Milwaukee home with portable storage containers. When you do so, you might find that clearing away all the random stuff will help clear away your stress, as well. Read on for some decluttering tips from UNITS of Milwaukee!
When you’re cleaning a space, a great rule of thumb is to only touch each item once. Whether you are moving or simply decluttering, if you reach for an item, put it in its rightful place. For example, say you have an extra crock pot – you could put it away in the kitchen if you think you may need it, put it in a bin you’ve put aside for donations or selling, or store it in a personal storage container to give to your kids when they move out. It’s your prerogative!
In a similar vein, it’s much more productive to focus on one room at a time. Finishing a room will help give you a tangible sense of progress and accomplishment. Moving your way up to bigger rooms by starting with smaller rooms can help you build up a sense of momentum, as well.
As you sort through old decorations or belongings that you’d like to keep, sell, or donate, make sure to have extra boxes and bins ready to go. This will help you only deal with each item once while allowing you to individually label the boxes and stay organized.
We hope these tips help your home stay clutter-free this holiday season. To learn more about UNITS of Milwaukee or to get a free quote on your personal storage container, call (262) 214-5124 or contact us online today!
