When people run out of room in common areas, discarded and rarely used belongings often make their way up to the attic. According to the professionals at International Self Storage in Anchorage, AK, moving these items into storage units is a simple, cost-effective way to declutter the room.
Below, the staff shares three ways investing in storage units will help get your attic organized while adding more usable space to the house:
- Do a Careful Assessment of Belongings: If it’s been a while since you really went through all the stuff in the attic, who knows what you might find in boxes or tucked away in the backs of closets. Getting items ready for storage is the perfect opportunity to take careful inventory of everything in the room. Chances are, some things aren’t worth putting in a storage unit. With a thorough examination, you’ll feel more comfortable throwing a few items away or saving them for donation. This will give you more usable attic space.
- Offers an Opportunity to Clean Up: By opting to place items in storage units, you can kill two birds with one stone. While rummaging through items to store, you can also arrange and organize everything you plan to keep in the attic. Once all the boxes are safely relocated to the facility, you’ll notice a big change in the room’s appearance.
- Organize Miscellaneous Items in One Place: From holiday decorations to gardening equipment, often, seasonal items are stored in attics. Because you don’t need these things throughout the year, they can easily get lost in the clutter. Putting items in storage is a great way to keep track of everything while reducing the unnecessary clutter buildup in the attic.
