As we’re heading into the new year, many people are taking the opportunity to set some goals and make some plans to make their lives better and easier. One of the most popular New Year’s resolutions, besides losing weight, is simplifying and decluttering the home. Clutter is at an all-time high, and people are feeling the crunch; living in a busy, messy, or otherwise cluttered environment has actually been shown to increase stress levels, increase interpersonal conflict, and reduce overall health!
There are many different ways to deal with a cluttered home, but it’s important to not overwhelm yourself with too large of a task all at once. Baby steps are the key to success, along with having a concrete plan of where your unwanted or unwanted-right-now items will go. Simply throwing everything out is not realistic, and it’s perfectly okay to want to keep some of your belongings. However, they don’t have to be hanging around your home, condo, or apartment.
Enter self-storage in Fort Collins.
Investing in a secure, climate-controlled offsite storage unit can be one of the best things you can do for yourself this year. This area is ideal for stashing things that you don’t need around your house, but don’t want to part with. Things like: seasonal decor (your holiday stuff has to go somewhere!), children’s clothes or toys, antiques, family heirlooms like art and furniture, old appliances, and even paperwork can all be safely stored outside of your home.
Living in a clean, organized, spacious home can do wonders for your mood, and decluttering should definitely be on your list of goals for this coming year. While it’s nice to come up with an organization system for your necessary items like clothes, work supplies, and food, it’s even nicer to have things completely “out of sight, out of mind.” Paring down and simplifying your life doesn’t have to mean giving everything away and living in a spartan, minimalist environment. You can find a happy middle ground, where your home is tidy and pleasant, and you still have the belongings you want and need- packed away in a storage unit, of course!
Fort Collins storage units are available in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, for reasonable monthly prices, so it’s worth considering this option to get a handle on your clutter. Ready to explore your self-storage potential this year? Get in touch with us to talk about your needs!
