How to get your house clean for the new year

With the new year right around the corner, it’s time to start making your list of resolutions for what you want to do next year. We can all agree that having a cleaner home should be at the top of the list. So why not get started now and get a little spring cleaning storage. No matter what season it is, you’ll be glad to have a clutter-free house for a clutter-free life.

Keep Things Organized

Don’t you just hate it when you are trying to find something and you turn your house upside down and come up with nothing? No matter how clean we try to be, stuff just piles up. It can be anything from old magazines and newspapers to clothes for the wrong season. Try to organize your home.

Whatever it is, you want to be able to find that exact screw you need to fix your phone or that classic photo that you want to show your friends. By having a storage unit you can keep your home tidier by creating a separate space for anything you don’t need to have right at hand.

Spring Cleaning Storage

The first step is to get started earlier. Hint— it doesn’t actually have to be spring! Take a good look around your house. If you have a hard time walking around and are constantly knocking things over then that’s a sign that you are ready for a little spring cleaning storage even if you are watching the first snowflakes of winter touch the ground.

Some Quick Tips

Before you do anything, you need to first make a survey. You need to take a good look around and note the three different categories: what do you need at home, what you do want to keep, but don’t need to keep around, and what needs to be donated/recycled. Having a garage sale is also the perfect way to get rid of your unwanted items, while also making some cash on the side.

Walk around your house and decide. If you haven’t used something for about three months then you should probably keep it in storage. Likewise, if something hasn’t been touched in a year (and maybe is caked in dust) then that’s a sign that it is time to go! 

Your Storage Unit is a New Chance

Moving somewhere can be a stressful experience. By the time it is over, we often happy to just put anything anywhere just to be done with it all and get on with our daily lives. The problem is that things can become easily placed in the wrong spot. How many times have you been trying to find a kitchen utensil in the middle of some antiques or something strange like that?

Simplify your life by renting a storage unit. There are many benefits to a storage unit. Having a storage unit is a way to push the reset button. You can organize it so that every time you go there, you can quickly find whatever it is you are looking for. Best of all, it gives you the space to get your house looking the way you want it!

New Year, New Year

It’s never too soon to get started on making your house more comfortable and there is no better way to do that than by starting with getting some spring cleaning storage. So start packing boxes, grab a little measuring tape, and find the perfect storage unit for all your needs today!
