Len’s top 5 New Year De-Cluttering top tips!
1 Make a list! – Lists are a great way to organise what you would like to accomplish on your de-cluttering mission and it clears your head! By seeing what you would like to achieve written down, you will feel motivated and proficient when you tick your tasks off of the list.
2 Compartmentalise! – If you haven’t used it in the last 6 months, chances are you probably won’t use it in the next 6 months – it’s time to be strict. Have 4 different labelled boxes, ‘Keep’ ‘Bin’ ‘Store’ and ‘Donate’, this will also minimise the shock of letting go of a lot at once!
3 Choose Self-Storage! – Boxes can get stocked up in cupboards and before you know it, you’re right back where you started! At Len’s Self Storage we have up to 50 different sized lockers and units alongside flexible storage options. You can keep your items safe with us as long as you would like!
4 Giving is good! – During the January sales, you may have picked up more bargains than you realised. It’s now time to clean out your wardrobe and pass on your older clothes to your favourite charity which can benefit from them.
5 Surface cleaning! – By clearing kitchen worktops and any tables you will instantly feel the benefit and be more motivated, a top tip would be to clear superficial areas first before exploring the depths of the cupboards!
