Nothing better than starting 2019 on the right foot with a completely organized home. Just imagine coming home and not having piles of old mail on that entry table. How about all your seasonal shoes stored out of sight. All of this organization is possible with some extra time and a storage unit! Statistics show that people only wear 20 percent of all the clothes we own 80 percent of the time! Most clothes taking up room in closets only gets one use before ending up in a box. Take advantage of the new year to get organized and less stressed!
Stay organized this year by:
Storing all unused or seasonal clothing in a storage unit.
The best thing about storage units is that you can store all your unused clothing. Instead of tossing all that expensive clothing out, you can save them in a climate-controlled storage unit. The temperature controlled room will ensure delicate clothing, like leather, does not get damaged. It won’t matter if the temperature outside is boiling hot or blistering cold, your mind will be at ease.
The most convenient thing is that you can take items out of storage whenever you need them. This allows you to move clothing in and out as you please. Storage units, like ours, have electric gate systems that allow you to access your belongs. Plus with 24/7 surveillance protection, you never have to worry about your personal items getting stolen.
Before you start to pack your clothing for a storage unit here are a few steps you should follow:
Wash all the clothes: You wouldn’t store your dirty clothes in your closet, so why would a storage unit be any different. Dirty and used clothing will leave horrible stains in your clothes. Another reason to store clean items? The bad odor will attract insects to nest in your clothes. Washing your clothing before storing will prevent pests!
Don’t vacuum seal for the long term. If you know for a fact that you are not going to be using that clothing for a long time, don’t vacuum seal. A vacuum seal will lose the pressure after time.
Use plastic containers. Cardboard boxes will increase the chances for mold and moisture. Keep them safe by storing them in plastic containers.
Protect against insects. Adding a couple of cedar balls with your clothes will protect them from moths and building mildew. Plus, it’ll leave your clothes with a pleasant scent.
Organize your mail.
Time to organize that heap of mail taking over your entry table. It might take only a few minutes or an hour depending on how much mail you managed to accumulate. Sorting out the letters will be the most time-consuming task on your list. It’s recommended to purchase a filing cabinet to keep your whole mail organized. It will make it easy to know what has been paid or not paid. Place the paid mail a separate containers and keep away from daily use. If you happen to have a closet or a climate controlled storage unit, it might be an ideal location. Only keeping what you need out and storing the important documents.
Declutter the kitchen.
Being one of the most used rooms in your home, kitchens tend to accumulate a lot of junk. Kitchens are place where everything gets shoved like water bottles, mail and even keys. These items will end up collecting over time. It will slowly take over your kitchen cabinets and countertops. Regaining your space should be a high priority task on your to-do list.
Reduce the kitchenware. Only keep what is needed in your cabinets. Store China away. Keep your valuable dishes and silverware away in storage. If you lack room, a climate-controlled storage unit is ideal! Get rid of that broken appliance. If devices are no longer working, don’t keep them in your kitchen.
