You might ask yourself this question – where does all the stuff come from that is cluttering up your world? For many of us raising a couple of kids, taking up hobbies (then ditching these when we become bored), saying goodbye to loved ones, kids growing up and moving out, packing up the homes of parents that have passed on – the list is endless and as the list grows, so do the things gather in and around our homes. It is common for us to hold onto those report cards, birthday greetings, wrapping paper, photos, odd bits of crockery and cutlery and myriad other bits and pieces that simply find their way into our hearts and our homes.
Decluttering will free you up to do the things in life that you love; things that are not invested in material items such as family, friends, love and other important things.
The secret to decluttering is not about getting rid of everything. If it is something closely attached to your heartstrings and makes you happy the answer to this one is obvious; if it makes you happy, hold onto it as memories are part of who we are.
2020 has heralded a new decade and a new year is a perfect time to get rid of all those things lying around the house or office. Do you have little bits of ribbon, paper and cards from the holiday season? If you don’t have a designated space specifically for ribbon and bits of wrapping paper, it is time to get ruthless!
Sports goods that you don’t use during the year and are seasonal can find a home in self-storage. Items you would like your children to inherit or pieces that are too large for your home yet still hold great sentimental value will be kept safe and dry under lock and key in self-storage units. The great thing about Easy Store is that the storage unit is brought to you (no transport needed), can be packed for you or you can select to do this yourself, then taken to a warehouse facility where your goods will be kept in a safe environment until you need them.
New year, new decade, new beginnings – decluttering is a brilliant way to start afresh.
