Using Portable Storage Units to Declutter Your Home
When you’re trying to sell your home, you have a million things on your mind. Worrying about what to do with all your belongings is the last thing you want to do! However, losing important documents or your favorite pair of shoes can be extra stressful, and this is why using portable storage units is a great solution.
When you’re preparing your home to go on the market, it’s much easier to sell when your home is clutter-free and clean. And though it may seem impossible, decluttering your home isn’t hard at all with portable storage units from SMARTBOX. Here are some tips for making decluttering your home with storage containers a lot easier:
Don’t procrastinate – pick a day to actually pack your stuff up. Add it to your calendar or to-do list. Although this doesn’t seem helpful, when you actually have a set date to do something and you’re serious about it, it’s more likely to get done.
Label and organize – organization is key when it comes to storage units. Throwing random things into storage containers without rhyme or reason isn’t going to help. You’ll end up just being confused later on and wondering which belongings are where. It’s essential to group things by room in each storage container so like things will stay together.
Get rid of big belongings first – start big and work your way to the smaller things. If you have larger items you hardly use or won’t need for long time, storing them will free up a lot of space in your home. Our storage containers can fit any large items, from bicycles to filing cabinets to chairs and more. Once big items are gone, pack up things that clutter drawers and cabinets, such as old toys, guest towels and out of season footwear and clothing.
