Springtime is upon us. It is time to make a fresh start and clear up some extra space in your home, closet, attic, and garage. As you go from room to room, make a pile of items you are going to donate, items that should be thrown out, and items you want to keep but do not need access to 24 hours a day. The piles of belongings you do not currently need but would like to keep are perfect for storage. Imagine the extra room you’ll have once you move these items to an air-conditioned clean and secure storage unit.
Step One: Get Organized
Make a list of what goals you have for spring-cleaning this year. Perhaps you sorted out your garage last year and this year you want to focus on your closets. Write down what you want to accomplish and what supplies you will need. Cleaning supplies, trash bags, and boxes for storage are a must.
Step Two: Get Help
Spring-cleaning is more fun and efficient when you have help. You may be surprised how effective young children are at dusting. If you have older children, have them vacuum, mop, and move items they can carry. It is also advisable to have your children help you donate items to learn about the value of giving to others.
Step Three: Reduce the Clutter
It’s easy to remember large items and to neglect smaller items that are taking up room and creating clutter. Put everything in its proper place. If an item doesn’t have a place to go, consider donating or trashing it, or storing it for future use.
Step Four: Consider Your Storage Options
There is likely a great storage facility nearby that has the space to accommodate your belongings. Storage units are ideal for extra furniture, holiday decorations, wine collections, and other items that you love but do not need on a regular basis.
