Space is a priceless thing, especially in your home. A place to put your possessions, things that hold value or memories that you don’t want to part with. But the truth is that there is a lot less space in your home than you think. According to statistics, 25% of people with two-car garages don’t actually have the ability to park two cars, because they fill the space with their belongings.
That means that 25% of people have a car’s worth of items that they aren’t actively using, but have nowhere else to put it. That’s a lot of space that could be freed up.
And that’s where on-demand storage comes into play.
There are many benefits to having on demand storage for you, or your business. Personal storage has many positives, especially in full-service storage facilities that have climate control and other settings. That can help preserve priceless, fragile, items that could be damaged by humidity or other environmental components.
You’d also be able to better prioritize your belongings. By figuring out what to store, and what to keep in the house, you’ll see what no longer suits you at the time. Maybe you have decor you’ve held on to for years, or clothes and items you don’t care for and that doesn’t match you anymore. You’ll be able to figure out what to do with them after this point.
You’ll also make your home more livable. Clearing out things like unused bikes, craft supplies, and clothes opens more space for living. You can finally park that second car in the garage, you’ll be able to reorganize and redecorate and enjoy the feeling of having a “new” home.
If you’re going to be moving items into storage, however, it is a good idea to keep a list of what you’re moving. A list or spreadsheet would be a good idea, so you know exactly what you moved. This way you don’t have to try and remember if you put that item away, or got rid of it in the past.
You should also clearly label every box with what’s exactly in it. That will make it easier to sort through at a later date if you need to find something.
