It’s amazing how much stuff someone can accumulate after a year or two. Multiply that by a few decades, an entire family, and years of hard work — and that’s likely a significant amount of things kept around the house and the office. As the new year approaches, it’s time to start thinking about freeing up more space in your life and, subsequently, alleviating much of the stress in your life.
It’s time to free up space for the new year. Here are some great tips to improve your storage capacity throughout 2019:
- Utilizing storage containers— A standard TEU shipping container can hold around 3,500 shoe boxes. And a 40-foot high cube container can hold more than 8,000 shoe boxes. That’s a lot of extra storage. Additionally, you can even make storage container modifications to accommodate for your custom storage needs. Utilizing storage containers is a great way to free up space in your life.
- Get rid of as much as you can— At the end of the day, you can only store so many items. No matter how many storage units you’re using, you don’t just want to be storing items that you will likely never touch. Rather than just wasting money and even more space, start thinking about donating or throwing out everything that you don’t need. Start walking around your home and office and make three piles: one pile of important items or things with sentimental value, one pile of things that you don’t need but you can donate like old clothes, and one pile that is just plain junk and needs to be thrown out. You’ll feel much better afterward.
- Don’t buy things you don’t need— As you progress throughout your career and earn more money, it might be tempting to spend much more frequently. But all that is really doing is causing more clutter around your home later on. Instead, save your money for larger and more important purchases down the line.
