After a long, cold winter, spring is finally here. The arrival of spring flowers and April showers is a breath of fresh air after months of hibernation. At this time of year, many of us feel the urge to start spring cleaning. Spending so much time indoors during the winter months reminds us of the many projects we meant to tackle but haven’t and all the clutter we intended to clear up but never got around to. If you want to engage in some deep cleaning and decluttering this spring, read on.
Before you can deep clean a space, you need to clear away the clutter. For many people, this is no easy task. Possessions have a way of accumulating through the year. This is especially true if you don’t have an annual spring cleaning routine. If you have a lot of “stuff”, the spring cleaning process of sorting through your belongings can be extremely daunting, not to mention stressful and time-consuming. Sorting through the clutter will be easier if you create a system. You may decide to sort items into piles like “keep”, “give away”, “donate” or “sell”. Having a clear system like this will allow you to move swiftly through your belongings to decide where they will end up after the spring cleaning process is complete. Sell. Items of value that you don’t wish to keep can be sold online on such platforms as Craigslist or Facebook Marketplace. You may also want to take advantage of the warmer weather and have an old fashioned, spring-cleaning inspired garage sale. Donate. Many local non-profit organizations will accept donations of gently used furniture, kitchen tools, appliances and other household items for families in need. Some of these organizations will even pick these items up from your home. Give Away. While spring cleaning, you may come across items you no longer need but know friends or family could benefit from. Offer your friends and loved ones first dibs on possessions in good condition that you’re ready to part with. Keep. Naturally, while sorting through your possessions, you will come across items you fully intend to keep! Unfortunately, sometimes clutter accumulates because you have more “stuff” than you have space. The challenge becomes figuring out where and how to store items in an organized fashion so you can actually navigate your storage spaces and enjoy your living spaces.
While spring cleaning, you may find yourself wishing you had an extra attic, basement, or garage to store your belongings. If implementing organization systems or installing shelving units won’t solve your storage problem because you have more to store than you have space, don’t despair. It may be time to explore storing the possessions you want to keep but don’t have space for in a secure storage unit. Before understanding what options exist for short and long term storage, it’s worthwhile considering what type of items are suitable for storage. The answer is fairly simple. You can store almost anything that you want to keep. This may include expensive exercise equipment, artwork and furniture you value or are attached to but don’t currently have space for. You may also wish to store clothing that doesn’t fit at the moment or isn’t in season, important documents and paperwork, boxes you don’t have space for, a piano or antique you inherited, children’s toys and various other things. The important thing to remember is that your choice of storage facility will (or at least should) be impacted by the type of items you need to store. For instance, if you need to store valuable antique artwork, ensuring that your storage facility is climate controlled to prevent damage from humidity will be incredibly important.
If you have decided that storing furniture or other belongings in storage facility is right for you, it’s time to consider logistics.
