Self Storage – Getting Organized – 2020
Getting Organized during 2020 can be difficult
It’s 2020! Everything is different and we know it can be difficult trying to get organized during a pandemic.
Whether you live in a house or an apartment, we all could use some extra space, especially living in the tri-state area and trying to social distance. Unless you are a minimalist with little to no furniture, clothing or other items, chances are you have things that are taking up a decent amount of space in your home. Every once in a while, it is nice to hit the reset button and get organized, especially in 2020!
Now for the fun part, how do you actually get started on becoming more organized in 2020 during a pandemic?
First and foremost, lets remember to be safe, wear a masks, gloves and have sanitizer and disinfectant ready for use!
It is easy to become overwhelmed and try to avoid having to take that deep dive into determining what is actually being used versus what is just occupying space in your home. You think about how much other stuff you have to do, or where will things go once you start sorting through your belongings.
Stop right now and create a plan first! Carving out some time on the weekend to sort through your belongings is a great way to start. As you go through your belongings, consider making the following three piles:
- Things you want to keep – This should be the easy part. Set aside the items that you absolutely cannot live without, which are things that you typically use on a daily basis.
- Things you want to give to charity or throw away – Now this is when the narrowing down process really begins. Chances are you have some clothes and shoes that you have not worn in a month, so that would be perfect for GoodWill, which we can help you with!
- Things you want to put in storage – All of those wonderful items that you do not quite have space for can come to us! With units in various different sizes, we can certainly find the perfect space for your belongings.
The sooner you begin getting organized in 2020, the better! You will not believe how much it can help set the tone to have a more neat, organized and clutter-free year!
