London Storage Solutions for the Hoarder

Whether it’s a dress from back in the heyday, or a broken lamp you were given by your late, great aunt. Hoarders can be very sensitive when it comes to throwing out their old bits and bobs. However, unless you want to be the star of Britain’s Biggest Hoarders. It’s time to sort through all your junk and have a clear-out.

At Store That Storage East London, we understand how difficult it can be to sort through valuables and decide whether to put them away or get rid . So we’ve put together a list of tricks to help you through the process.

Start Slow

When you stare into the abyss of old junk and broken furniture, it can be extremely overwhelming. However, don’t be put off by the sheer amount of belongings to get rid off. We suggest starting slow and small. Work your way through each area, room by room, each week. Perhaps you could leave it to a slow sunday or even one night after work. Just plop yourself down in the centre of the room and work your way around the items.

Handle Objects One At A Time

Looking at the size 8 dress you will probably never fit into again, you may find it difficult to get rid or let go off your belongings. Despite knowing you will never use it or need it again. You must look at the item and ask yourself a few questions before you make your final decision i.e. will I realistically wear/use this in the future? Have I used this in the last year? If I were shopping right now, would I buy it?

If you answer ‘No’ to all those questions, it’s time to chuck it!

Scale Down

We’re not asking you to throw out everything you own, but just getting rid of a few items will help clear the mind and space in your home. However, one of the hardest jobs for parents is deciding what to do with their children’s old school work. Especially if you’re children have moved out of the house.

At Store That, we recommend getting all the work down from the loft and sorting it into piles of keep and recycle. There may be special school reports and artwork you want to keep but as for the copious amounts of paintings and pasta artwork. Be sure to offer it to your kids before to avoid any arguments or upset!
