The New Year has arrived and you’re probably noticing that your home’s clutter has followed you right into 2017. Luckily, with the help of a portable storage unit, the clutter doesn’t have to last for long. Here are some reasons your New Year’s resolution should be to invest in storage.
Clutter can put a damper anyone’s mood. In fact, in severe cases it can cause anxiety and depression. So, start the new year off right with a little more organization. After all, a happy home is an organized home! By placing unused items in a storage unit, you can free up closet space, improve living room function and turn your bedroom back into your comfy, cozy space.
Pro tip: place clothes in storage seasonally and add space in your living room by putting your bulky furniture that isn’t used a lot in storage as well.
2. Items are kept in good condition.
Sure, you may have a garage that you can try to cram all of your excess items into, but in the long run, your items will end up torn, broken or faded. By investing in storage, you can ensure your items last for many years to come.
Pro tip: to help leather items last longer apply a leather conditioner before placing the items in storage. Also, wrap as many of your items as you can in industrial plastic wrap. This will help keep your items safe from dust and any bugs that may somehow find their way into your unit.
3. Your valuables are stored securely.
Your grandma’s china and your mother’s furniture set are precious family heirlooms, but sometimes they just don’t fit in your home. A storage unit provides a safe and secure place to store valuables until you’re ready to display them in your home.
4. Upsizing without having to move.
Sometimes buying a bigger house just isn’t in the budget, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have access to some extra space. Upsize by making a much smaller investment in a storage unit. This will create space and save you the expenses of a bigger home.
If you’re ready for a change in 2017, taking strides to free up space in your home can make a huge difference in your daily life!
