How decluttering can give you a peace of mind

By Chad McIntyre, Edited by Paula Lacsena

We’re  surrounded by things that suffocate us.

Sometimes I come home at the end of the week and ask myself, “What kind of people live here?” Me. Just me. I know that I could either continue to overstock on random items and have them collect dust or thoroughly go through my possessions and ask myself, “Do I really need this? Have I used this recently? Am I going to use this soon?”

Overstocking doesn’t lead to happiness
We tend to hang on to many material possessions, so we sometimes fail to realize that objects cannot bring us long lasting happiness; people and moments do. We’re incapable of changing the way we live because of the things in our lives that we choose to tie ourselves down to—our clothes, books, accessories, and the many other things that we overstock on over the years.

Do you really want to continue collecting  these items, only to have them become untouched clutter? I certainly don’t! When we come home, we want to do nothing but relax. If we come home to a space with minimal clutter, we would find relaxing much easier.

Storage units are your home’s best friend
Personally, looking at clutter stresses me out.  My solution for people who have an overstock of unnecessary items is to invest in a storage unit. Storage units can easily store your seasonal decor, furniture, clothes, and any other excess material possessions. Once you store your possessions, you can put them away and wait for a period of time before  going through them again. Surely, you will come across things that you didn’t even realize you packed up and you’ll see what you didn’t need in the first place.

Investing in a storage unit will allow you to come home to a clean and organized space, where you can relax with ease. After all, you have control over what stays and goes in your life.

You can breathe now!

How storage is a mover’s best friend

By Moosa Kidwai, Edited by Rachel Petersen

If you’ve ever moved before, you know how essential a storage unit can be to keep your furniture and belongings safe while you’re between spaces. Moving is a very stressful process and it’s not usually easy. However, having a storage unit where you can safely store your valuables mid-move, whether they come with you or not, will help take a lot of pressure off your shoulders.

A storage unit allows you to set items aside that won’t be needed for a while or may not yet have a home in your new space. Those delicate family heirlooms and the several boxes of heavy books need not clutter your new home as you work to unpack essentials. Having a storage unit handy means that you can focus on your move and not where you’re going to put your grandmother’s dinner plates. After unpacking and organizing your place to your satisfaction, you will finally be able to think about what to do with your precious items that you have in storage. Luckily, everything is safe and secure in a heated, indoor storage unit.

A storage unit also comes in handy when your moving dates don’t line up. You have to be out of your current home by the end of the month but don’t get your keys to your new home for a few more days? Drop your non-essentials in a storage unit until you’re ready to make the move.

A storage unit will be your best friend in the moving process and help you have the least stressful move possible.
