Need storage in Hudson MA?
The snow has finally melted, the grass is getting greener. It’s time for some spring cleaning, and that could mean that you need storage in Hudson Ma. My Wife and I go through this every spring. We start to tackle our spring cleaning. But we hit a wall. The solution is not simply organizing everything we have better. The solution is reducing the number of items in your house!
One key to success is doing everything at once. Do not just tackle one closet at a time. It will take you weeks, and procrastination will set it in. Go through the entire house with a trash bag, and empty boxes or bins. Trash everything that is trash. Box everything that has value you to you, but doesn’t need immediate access.
What is trash?
Trash is going to be different for everyone. It could be outdated or worn out clothing. It could a broken lamp you are waiting to fix. If it were gone, would you remember it? Could you give the item away if you tried and would someone take it willingly?
What gets saved?
Seasonal items are the best things to save for storage. The cost of an off site storage unit is easy to budget, because at $1/ft it is far cheaper than the rent you pay at home, or the mortgage cost you are paying towards your house. These can be bulky items such as golf clubs, skis, fitness equipment, or patio furniture. High value items, but low frequency or seasonal use. It could be all winter clothing boxed, or summer beach stuff. Determine the last time you used it, and if it was something you needed immediately. These are items that are not easily replaced. They could be sentimental too, such as holiday ornaments.
Clear out these items, and how does your space look now? Hopefully you just reduced about 2/3s of your items. 1/3 is typically trash, 1/3 typically seasonal or low frequency use items, 1/3 everyday items you ‘love’ to have close to you. There is a huge mental benefit to having more space in your home
and you’ll feel the benefits quickly. Lower stress, easier to find your keys, etc! Storage in Hudson Ma is easy.
