Does that pile of stuff in the corner of the living room seem to be continually expanding? Has your dining table disappeared under a pile of paperwork? Are your cupboards bursting at the seams? Don’t worry, you're not alone. With the size of homes in London continuing to decrease, it’s not surprising that many more of us are feeling that our homes and lives are being consumed by clutter. But just what can you do about it when you have very little storage space in your home, and what you do have, is taken up by essentials such as the vacuum cleaner and ironing board.
Personal well being
Clutter can also have a negative impact on our mental well being. When we feel constrained by clutter, it can impede our ability to think clearly and to relax and recuperate. In short, it can make us less efficient in many aspects of our lives. Removing clutter from an office or business environment can even increase productivity. But aside from moving into a bigger space, what can you do?
Types of clutter
So clearly decluttering, and making space in our homes to live and breathe is actually quite important but tackling this and freeing up space to live, can be very challenging. There are certain things that we want to keep; sentimental items or out of season clothes for example. There are things we only need occasionally, like sports equipment and suitcases. Or things like old paperwork that we have to keep but just take up so much space!
In a perfect world, you could follow Marie Kondo’s example; go through your things and reduce them by getting rid of any that don’t bring you pleasure. However, if parting with anything is just too difficult to comprehend then, there is another way. Renting a personal storage unit can actually be a great middle ground. You can keep all of your things, just in a storage unit rather than in your home! The only decision you’ll need to make is what goes where.
WIth a personal storage unit at Attic Self Storage, you can choose the best size based on the amount of belongings you want to relocate.
