3 tips for organising your storage space
We all accumulate copious amounts of stuff, so much so, most items end up in a storage facility. If you have a shed or extra space in your home then it is an excellent idea to utilise that space effectively. However, if you don’t, another way to keep your possessions safe is by renting a self storage unit.
Taking some time to keep your self storage unit organised will provide many benefits. Here are some tips for organising your storage space better.
Establish how much space you have
Part of making the most out of your storage space is by sorting and clearing it out once in a while. It is important to know everything you have in storage. Make an inventory of all the items that you have in your storage unit. Once you know exactly what things there are to keep, think about how to organise everything better.
Divide up the unit and organise little and often
As more stuff gets put into the unit, things begin to pile up along with the rest of the items. Belongings then tend to get mixed up and everything becomes disorderly. Unfortunately, when the day comes to sort through everything, you may not know where to start.
One tip is to go about sorting through everything a bit at a time. Divide the storage unit up into sections and tackle one section of the storage unit at a time. That way you avoid feeling overwhelmed and can gradually work to get things done.
Declutter and get rid of the things you don’t need
Plenty of storage users often treat their unit as a dumping ground where they keep things they no longer use or no longer have any value to them. If you want to maximise your storage space, think about having a clear out of all the things you no longer put to use. Sell your items online using marketplaces or via social media, donate to local charity shops or use the local tip. If you have lots of old confidential paperwork that is no longer required, use a shredder and get it disposed of.
Getting a storage unit is an excellent way to keep all of your belongings secure if your home doesn’t have enough space. However, you need to make sure that you make effective use of the space you rent.
