But before you throw out your beloved valuables that just don’t have place in your home any longer, here are a few tips on how to best declutter your space and determine what can go into one of our storage rentals or not:
One of the best ways to ensure you don’t end up with a bigger mess than when you started is by implementing a basic sorting system as you clear out unwanted items. The popular three-box method is a great way to sort through clutter, just find three empty boxes, label them ‘Keep’; ‘Get Rid Of’ and ‘Storage’. This method forces you to make a decision item by item.
Counter tops, shelves and other flat surfaces can be magnets for clutter such as unopened mail, magazines, small appliances etc. Make it your goal to keep these flat services clear by filing away bills, throwing away old magazines and categorising appliances. Once your flat surfaces are open and clutter free, your room will already feel ‘bigger’ and more spacious.
As you work through your possessions it’s important to keep them categorized and in the same place as one another. Keeping like things together forces you to organise your home and it will make your life easier at the same time. This way you will also be able to find what you’re looking for much quicker and easier!
Naturally, you may be heart sore to part with certain possessions for good, or perhaps there’s just no room left for a certain item in your home. The next best thing is to put it all in storage! SA Removals offers convenient and affordable storage facilities across South Africa.
