How to successfully declutter your home

April 24, 2024

Stuff accumulates, right? Before you know it, you have a home in which cupboards and rooms are packed with things you rarely use, or don’t use at all. It can be stressful, annoying and time consuming because the thing you really want is hidden among the things you don’t.

But what do you do about it?

You declutter! We know all about this at Store & Stack Self Storage in Tauranga as many of our clients have taken stress out of their lives by decluttering. With that in mind, we thought we’d give you a little guidance to help make the process easier.

Decluttering point one: get a storage game plan

Some of the things you want to say goodbye to may be going to recycling or a new home via a garage sale. However, if you know there’ll be possessions you can’t bear to lose, then it’s best to arrange for somewhere secure, clean and convenient to store them.

Decluttering point two: pick a room

It’s pretty straightforward this tip – you pick a room you want to declutter and you don’t move on to the next room until you’re finished. The reason is that unless you complete a room, there’s a risk of being sidetracked by other rooms’ clutter. Get one room done and then move onto the next.

Tip – start with the garage first as this is the most commonly cluttered space, this will help reduce the frustration of not being able to fit the car in the garage.

Decluttering point three: pack things properly

If you are going to put things from your decluttering mission into storage, then you need to pack them right. For example, if you were storing furniture then remember to empty all the contents from the drawers. Or if you were storing a device, then try and find the original box and tape up the gaps to prevent dust from getting into the device.

We’ve got some useful package and storage tips over on our website. Looking for packing supplies? We’ve got you covered too, with everything from boxes to bubble wrap.
