Declutter for the New Year and a New You!

Declutter for the New Year and a New You It’s January 2022 and a fresh start is on the horizon for us all! So, what New Year’s resolutions have you made? Keeping fit? A detox diet? We believe that something that is great for the mind, soul and your life is a DECLUTTER! And what do you do with everything that you don’t urgently need in your home or your office space? Well how about you consider a storage facility like Pickups Self Storage – let us take away the items that you don’t imminently need and free up some space and thus your mind!

We are experts at looking after items big or small, as we have an incredible location in the Leeds/Bradford area and have an excellent variety of storage options, varying from those you can drive your vehicle right up to, to those you can walk a box into. Perhaps you aren’t sure about how long you need to store your items for – well that isn’t a problem for us, as we have flexible contracts allowing you to rent a space for a short or a long period of time.

So, its January and you are ready to start the year with a flying start. What needs decluttering? Clothes, toys, Christmas decorations, house furnishings or paperwork and admin? Perhaps it’s a combination of these things, whichever it is, the best thing to do is to sort through everything and let us take care of items that are taking up valuable room in your home or workspace – leaving you clutter free. When de-cluttering, have a structure in place by which you try and stick to, e.g. how often you think you will need it, how well does it need packaging etc. Then consider what you could get rid of and either sell (on a local Facebook group or marketplace) or give away to charity or a local community group (especially if you have books and plastic toys in good condition and plenty of life). Then, start to organise the items into the boxes or crates you are going to store them in. Keep an itemised list of what you have put away where and in which box it is in. Remember to also keep heavy, less fragile items at the bottom and lighter more delicate things at the top.
