A cluttered bedroom being decluttered and organised with Safestore's storage solutions

How self storage can help you declutter

If you run out of space in your home due to the accumulation of personal belongings, consider using self-storage to declutter your living space. Self storage is a convenient and affordable option that allows you to store your items securely outside of your home, freeing up valuable space and reducing clutter.

Here are some ways that self storage can help you declutter your home:

  1. Create More Space: Self-storage provides you with additional space to store your items that you may not have space for in your home. You can store items such as seasonal clothes, sports equipment, and holiday decorations.
  2. Organize Your Home: By removing items that you don't use frequently from your home, you can organize your living space better. You can create more functional living spaces in your home by removing clutter and unnecessary items.
  3. Reduce Stress: A cluttered living space can cause stress and anxiety. Self-storage can help alleviate these feelings by providing a solution for the storage of your items, reducing clutter in your home, and creating a more relaxed living environment.
  4. Facilitate Moving: If you're planning to move, self-storage can help you to declutter your home, making it easier to prepare for the move. You can store items that you won't need until after the move, such as furniture, and make the moving process smoother and more efficient.

In conclusion, self storage can be an excellent solution to decluttering your home. By creating more space, organizing your living spaces, protecting your belongings, reducing stress, and facilitating moving, self-storage can be a valuable asset in helping you achieve a clutter-free living space. Self storage can help you to declutter without the pain of parting with possessions that you like and may need to use again one day.

What can you put in a storage unit

You can put almost anything into a clean, dry, secure self storage unit for as long as you like and you can purchase packaging/protectors to help protect your things.

For example:
  • If your wardrobes are overflowing, consider using self storage to store out-of-season clothing until you next need it.
  • Christmas decorations can take up a huge amount of space in your home and you only use them for perhaps four weeks a year. Store them with us and free up some space.
  • Camping and sports equipment are only needed occasionally, and perhaps not at all over the winter months. Store them with us and take them out whenever you need to use them.
  • If your bookshelves are overflowing but the idea of getting rid of your favourites is unbearable, consider storing some with us. You can always swap them out whenever you feel like it.
  • If you'd like to reclaim your spare room and turn it into a more useful space.
