Self Storage – Getting Organized

Self Storage – Getting Organized

Getting Organized for the New Year

It’s 2020! A new year, a new decade, and a new opportunity to make some New Year’s resolutions to make some improvements because who doesn’t love a fresh start?

Whether you live in a house or an apartment, we all could use some extra space, especially living in the tri-state area. 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!

Now for the fun part, how do you actually get started on becoming more organized this year? 

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:

1)   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.

 

2)   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! We partnered with GoodWill so that if you use our StorageBlue NOW service, we can bring your items to storage and drop off any donated items to GoodWill.

 

3)   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, the better! You will not believe how much it can help set the tone to have a more neat, organized and clutter-free year!

Three Types of People Who Should Consider a Self-Storage Unit

Looking for a way to free up space? Well, that is the primary reason most people get a storage unit. 

 

A self-storage unit is a great temporary or long-term solution to storing your possessions. Live a more organized life by managing all your stuff and opening up more space. 

 

Here are three people who are likely to need a storage unit:

 

College Students

Attending a college or university in another state? A storage unit is a convenient space for your belongings that aren’t being used. No need to worry about the hassle of having to bring your stuff back and forth to school each semester when you can just store your things at a facility located near your school.

 

Job Relocation

If the job of your dreams is in another city, make your move a little less stressful by using a storage unit. It is a great resource to use in between moving. While you are finding a home, your belongings will stay safe and sound until you are ready to get settled in. 

 

Entrepreneur

At the start of a business, it may be hard to find a space that can hold all your belongings. As you continue to build up your inventory and accumulate more products, you will need more space. Using a storage unit will allow you to store your belongings to be used on an as-needed basis.

 

Overall, having a storage unit can be more beneficial than you may realize! Save money, time, and stay organized by only surrounding yourself with the things you need. 

Due to COVID-19 curfew in NJ, the StorageBlue Facilities have changed to 10am - 6pm Mon. - Sun, until further notice.
