Whether You’re a Filer or a Piler, Excess “Stuff” Is a Problem

By Storbox Self-Storage on May 3, 2017 - Comments off

No matter what age, people break down into two basic groups: “filers” and “pilers.”

The filers are usually organized, making-lists-type people. They have definite boundaries in their mental processes and tend to keep their physical domains neat, logically arranged, and color-coded. If there’s too much stuff, they consider whether they “really” need it—and if not, they get rid of it.

Pilers are the opposite type of people. Hoarders may be the extreme end of the “piling” spectrum, but all pilers usually keep things around them—even too many things—due to emotional attachments. The thought that they might need or want “it” someday keeps “it” safe from the bin. You could say that filers are the brain-based organizers, and pilers the heart-based organizers.

This is not to say that combinations or hybrids never occur: A person could have a messy workspace and an orderly mind, for example, and some people tend to file certain things while letting others pile up. A fireman may keep his life-saving gear in order, but ignore his Dalmatian’s chewed-up toys and old beds until they become a fire hazard in themselves.

But the filers and the pilers both run into the same problem: when it comes to the important stuff, where can I put the excess? What if the fireman’s Dalmatian needs all those old things for retirement on a country farm?

Self-storage. It’s really the best option out there. There are many reasons to use a professional storage facility, and only one reason to use your aunt’s house: money. But at STORBOX, prices are reasonable and that space is much more likely to be safe from your aunt’s dog. Remember, when you store your personal goods at a private residence that isn’t yours, the person watching over them could claim you “abandoned” the goods and toss them. Getting a storage space is safer, and there are much stricter rules in place for disposal of your goods if you can’t pay. Remember, you’re that storage facility’s customer, and they want to work with you. Unlike your ex, they won’t set your clothes on fire if you don’t pick them up by next Saturday.

So when you need to remove some “maybe-necessary” piles from your living space, give STORBOX a call at (626) 407-3439. They give “professional storage counselors” to the pilers and provide moving trucks, dollies, and ease of access to the filers. No matter which one you are (or both!), STORBOX has what you need to get that stuff in order.
