How Storage Units Can Help With Your New Year’s Resolution of Decluttering, Anchorage, Alaska

If one of your new year’s resolutions is to declutter your home, you could benefit from self-storage. Storage units allow renters to take rarely used items out of their homes, leaving more room to get organized. You can choose from a variety of different-sized units at International Self Storage in Anchorage, AK. Below, their staff explains why a storage unit will help you accomplish your 2018 goal.

Planning to Declutter Your Home in 2018? How a Storage Unit Will Help

Use Square Footage More Effectively

Every home has a finite amount of storage, whether it’s in your basement, attic, or closets. You may have more stuff than the space can accommodate, so you have to use it wisely. With a storage unit, you can stow away the items you don’t need to access regularly and use the limited space in your home for more frequently used possessions.

Allow Room to Organize

storage unitsThe decluttering process can take up a fair amount of space. After all, you need room to sift through your belongings and sort items into different categories. If you don’t want to turn your entire home into a work zone for weeks, use a storage unit for items you definitely want to keep. That way, you’ll have more space in your basement or attic and can work at your own pace.

Open Up Usable Space

If you have more stuff than storage space, you might have devoted functional areas of your home to holding random items. Maybe it’s a guest bedroom you can’t fit guests in or a basement living space that hasn’t seen activity in years. If you secure a storage space for those extra belongings, you can start using these areas for their intended purposes.

If you’re looking to take advantage of all of these benefits and tackle your new year’s resolution, the team at International Self Storage will help. The company offers everything from mini-storage to auto storage, so you can free up a little space in your home or get those big, bulky items out of the way. Call (907) 563-3287 or visit the company’s website for more information about their storage units.
