Ways To Manage Your Self-Storage Better in the New Year

After welcoming in 2016, now is the perfect time to come up with some New Year’s resolutions. A lot of people vow to be more tidy and organised throughout the coming year – so if you’re one of these people, you may want to think about a storage related solution. Here is a quick guide to help you create more efficient storage management in 2016, and say goodbye to the clutter and disorganisation of previous years.

Firstly, it’s important to tackle the problem head on! If you’ve found yourself hoarding items that you really don’t need, it’s time to start being ruthless and decide what stays and what goes!

Once you have sorted the items you don’t want to keep into boxes or bags, commit to donating them to charity or selling them, so that you’re not tempted to open them back up again. For the items that you want out of the house but aren’t quite ready to part with, secure self-storage can be the perfect solution.

Another common problem is having small rooms in the house that seem impossible to keep tidy. The key here is to invest in simple storage, such as boxes for under the bed or hanging racks for the back of the door. Clever storage solutions such as these can make your room seem far bigger and forces you to stay organised!

Many of us have the issue of old books, DVDs and CDs taking up a huge amount of room in our houses. Although you may not want to say goodbye to some of the classics just yet, it’s important to have a serious think about the last time you listened to a CD or when you’re likely to read certain books again. If the answer is not in the near future, it may be a good idea to either donate these to a charity shop, sell them or put them into self-storage in E14.

Sometimes having the wrong size or shape furniture can make rooms seem a lot more cluttered than they really are. By changing replacing short, wide shelving units with tall, narrow ones you can make the world of difference to your living spaces.

At Store That Isle of Dogs, we offer unit sizes that can accommodate anything between just a few boxes to a whole van load of items. Our storage in E14 offers a great intermediate point if you are in need of a clear out but aren’t quite sure what to do with the left over items; we hold on to it until you’re ready to collect it.

Our long and short-term leases can fit around you and our friendly, helpful staff can guide you through the entire process. As well as this, we have around-the-clock CCTV as well as in-house security, so your belongings will be in the safest of hands. Get in touch today for storage solutions just a stone’s throw away from Canary Wharf and turn those New Years’ resolutions into a reality.
