Self-Storage Tips To Declutter Your Home For The New Year’s Resolution

Storage Tips to Declutter Your Life

January is right around the corner and one of the main things that is bound to arise is the question of what your New Year’s resolution is. Most people will rely on weight loss and making more money, but you could easily stand out among the crowd and say that you plan on decluttering your home by utilizing the benefits of self-storage.

We know you have a limited amount of time in the day to get things done, so that is why we have created a five-month kick start to getting your clutter into a self-storage unit this year.

January Says Goodbye to Christmas!

By now, your home probably looks like a holiday battleground. With decorations, wrapping paper and new gifts cluttering up your home, it may be time to think about renting a storage unit in Plano to use as your holiday workshop. Take the time to go through the new gifts you received, as well as the ones they may be replacing. Can you sell your old items? Will you put them into storage and re-use them? Think about this question before your first month of 2018 ends.


If you are a younger person that is trying to declutter, now is the time to get rid of your old love letters, photos, and items given to you by people who may no longer hold that special sentimental aspect of your heart anymore. If you plan on re-visiting these items for nostalgia, we suggest you pack them up carefully and place them in storage where they are out of sight and out of mind…at least until that next big break-up.


It’s almost time for gardening season at this time of the year. Now would be the perfect time for you to go through your gardening shed and really examine the gardening tools and items that are in there. Is there anything that can be stored away for later? Do you REALLY need two wheel barrels? Consider storing them in a Grand Prairie storage unit to save space in your shed or home.

April Means Examine Your Sports Equipment

With the year beginning to heat up, now is the perfect time to start taking out the old sports equipment. Ask the kids or your other family members what they plan on using this year for recreation. Whatever they don’t plan on using you can plan on putting away into storage. Maybe they have grown out of old equipment and gear and you’ll have to hold a garage sale. Either way, your home and life are already shaping up for a decluttering success.

Things Start to Heat Up in May

Before the weather gets too hot for you to move boxes, make sure that your storage unit itself is not too cluttered. Take a day or two to go through old boxes and find as many things as possible to toss out if you find that they are just taking up space. This opens up more storage unit square footage for your to use throughout the remainder of the year. Don’t forget the storage essentials!
