Decluttering your entire home can have a wealth of benefits, including decreasing your stress and improving your mental health; however, knowing you should be decluttering and knowing how to actually do it are two different things. Decluttering ineffectively can make your house even more messy. Self Storage in Coogee from KeepSafe Storage O’Connor can help you structure your decluttering to get the most out of the process.
Start with the big stuff
As soon as you think about decluttering, there are probably a few items that come to mind straight away. If these are items you still want to keep but don’t need inside your home, move these items into your storage unit straight away. You might be surprised at how much space you’ve opened up already.
Classify your items
Take the decluttering one room at a time. With each room, you need to reevaluate the purpose of every single item. As you evaluate an item, you need to classify it accordingly. The possible categories are:
- Items you want to keep
- Items you want to keep but don’t want to keep in your home
- Items you don’t want to keep
Items that are broken should be thrown away, but other items you don’t want to keep can be donated, sold, or recycled. Items you want to keep but don’t want to keep in your home should be moved into your Coogee Self Storage. Items you want to keep should be moved into their rightful place in your home.
Empty out a room
Trying to rearrange a room while it’s still filled with items can be very difficult. It makes it a lot harder to visualise the possibilities. Instead, try and empty out the room before you try and rearrange it. If you’re wondering where to put all your belongings, storage in Coogee is your answer.
Finishing the decluttering process can bring you a huge sense of accomplishment. Now, the challenge is to eliminate clutter before it’s even brought into your home. Renting your Self Storage in Coogee for the long term can help you maintain your clutter-free home. If you’re ready to book your storage unit from KeepSafe Storage O’Connor, you can book online today.
