Storing Items to Declutter Your Living Space

Posted by Big Mikes Moving & Storage on July 24, 2023

It’s never too late to declutter your living space and straighten up the homestead to get it looking its very best. Whether you’re getting ready for a move or just need to get some more living space, there’s an ideal solution for both, and that’s renting a storage locker. Every year, many people do this, and they wonder as to which items are best stored away for later use. Well, we’re here to break down some of the best candidates.

Seasonal Items - Depending upon the geographic area that you live in, you might have some items in and around your home that you don’t use all year round. For instance, you might have winter clothing and accessories such as sleds, snowplows, skis, or tire chains. Because you only need them a few months out of the year, placing them in storage can ensure some extra space around the house when they’re not in use.

Furniture - If you’re planning a move or some renovations, furniture is best kept someplace where it won't get in the way. Items such as sofas, dining room tables, and maybe even beds can be put away for a determined duration. 

Baby Items - If you’re in the process of raising a tiny human, chances are you have a lot of items, such as a crib, clothes, and toys that they’ve outgrown. Packing them away for a future sale or donation can free up some much-needed living space. Because, as we all know, children grow up fast and outgrow things at an alarming rate. 

Clothes - It’s not just children who outgrow clothes quickly. Depending on how expansive your wardrobe is, you might have large quantities of clothing that you don't wear that often. If you tend to alternate between a spring and summer wardrobe, you can free up some much-needed space in your closet. 

Electronics & Appliances - Thinking of upgrading some of the appliances in your home? Good idea. What's also a good idea is to store your other items that are no longer in use in a storage space. You might be able to donate or sell them at a later date.
