Maximising Your Space: Top 10 Organisational Tips for Self Storage Users

Renting a self-storage unit is a fantastic way to declutter your living space, create more room at home, and securely store belongings you don't need on a daily basis. However, to truly make the most of your self-storage rental, it's important to organise your items efficiently. Here are our top 10 organisational tips for self storage users that will help you maximise your space and ensure easy access to your stored items:

Plan Before You Pack: Before moving anything into your storage unit, take some time to plan and strategise. Create an inventory list of what you're storing and consider how frequently you might need to access each item.

Categorise and Label: Divide your items into categories such as clothing, electronics, documents, and seasonal items. Use clear, detailed labels on boxes and containers so you can easily identify the contents without having to open everything up.

Use Uniform Boxes and Containers: While it might be tempting to use a variety of boxes and containers you have lying around, using uniform sizes will make stacking and arranging items much easier. Opt for sturdy boxes that can withstand stacking without collapsing.

Invest in Shelving: If your storage unit allows, invest in some freestanding shelving units. These can significantly increase your storage space by utilising vertical space. Place frequently accessed items on lower shelves and less-used items on higher shelves.

Create Aisle Space: Leave a clear pathway down the centre of your storage unit. This allows you to access items without having to move everything around. An organised space is a functional space.

Furniture Puzzle: If you are storing furniture, disassemble it if possible to save space. Stack chairs and smaller items on top of tables. Place cushions and soft items within the furniture cavities to save even more space.

Protect Delicate Items: For delicate items like glassware or electronics, wrap them in bubble wrap or packing paper before storing. This not only protects them from damage but also helps prevent dust accumulation.

Utilise Vertical Space: Make use of the vertical space in your unit by stacking items vertically. Consider using shelves, hooks, or brackets on the walls to hang bicycles, sports equipment, or tools.

Store Smart: Store items you may need to access frequently at the front of your unit. Seasonal items can be stored toward the back. This way, you won't have to move everything around each time you need something.

Keep a Map: Create a simple diagram or map of where you've placed specific items within your unit. This will save you time and frustration when you're searching for something in the future.

In conclusion, renting a self-storage unit is a savvy way to free up space in your home and keep your belongings secure. However, to truly benefit from your storage rental, organisation is key. By following these 10 tips, you can make the most of your storage space and maintain easy access to your items whenever you need them. Happy organising!

Remember, a well organised storage unit not only makes retrieval easy but also prevents damage to your items. Take the time to plan and set up your storage unit thoughtfully to enjoy the full benefits of self storage.

Embracing Clarity: How Self Storage Creates a Clutter-Free Home and Enhances Your Mental Health

In our fast-paced world, the pursuit of a clutter-free and organised living space has become increasingly challenging. Accumulating belongings, limited living space, and the demands of a busy lifestyle can lead to a chaotic and overwhelming home environment. Thankfully, self storage offers a practical solution that not only clears physical clutter but also has a profound impact on our mental well-being. In this blog post, we will explore how self storage can transform your home into a serene sanctuary, positively affecting your mental health.

Liberating Your Living Space:

A cluttered home is often associated with feelings of anxiety, stress, and even a lack of control. By utilising self storage, you can liberate your living space from the burden of excessive belongings. This enables you to create an organised, functional environment that promotes relaxation and peace of mind. A clutter-free home becomes a canvas for self-expression and fosters a sense of tranquility that can have a significant impact on your mental health.

Promoting Clear Thinking:

Physical clutter not only clutters our living space but also clutters our minds. When our surroundings are chaotic, it becomes challenging to focus, concentrate, and think clearly. Self storage allows you to declutter and create an environment that promotes mental clarity and productivity. With a clear mind, you can approach daily tasks with greater efficiency and creativity, leading to reduced stress levels and improved overall well-being.

Reducing Stress and Overwhelm:

Living in a cluttered space can feel suffocating and overwhelming. It can trigger stress responses, increase cortisol levels, and make it difficult to relax and unwind. By utilising storage, you can free up valuable living space, organise your belongings, and create a soothing atmosphere. Removing physical clutter translates into a decluttered mind, alleviating stress and enabling you to enjoy a calmer and more peaceful living environment.

Enhancing Emotional Well-being:

Our possessions often carry emotional attachments, and parting with them can be emotionally challenging. Self storage provides a practical compromise, allowing you to keep sentimental items without sacrificing valuable living space. It enables you to maintain a connection to treasured possessions without feeling overwhelmed by their physical presence. This sense of emotional balance promotes a healthier relationship with your belongings, ultimately enhancing your overall emotional well-being.

Enabling Lifestyle Flexibility:

Life is full of transitions, whether it's downsizing, relocating, or refurbishing your home. During such periods, self storage becomes an invaluable asset. It allows you to store belongings temporarily, reducing the chaos associated with these life changes. The flexibility offered by storage containers enables you to navigate transitions smoothly and adapt to new circumstances with ease, fostering resilience and minimising stress levels.


Self storage offers far more than just a space to store belongings. By embracing its benefits, you can create a clutter-free home that not only enhances your physical space but also greatly improves your mental health. From promoting clear thinking and reducing stress to enhancing emotional well-being and enabling lifestyle flexibility, self storage becomes a catalyst for transformation and provides a path to a more serene and balanced life. Embrace the opportunity to declutter and restore harmony to your living environment, paving the way for improved mental well-being and a brighter future.

How to make the most of your storage unit

Try to box your things up room by room in your house and label each box, label the boxes by what room they come out of and what the content of the box is for example Matt’s room ‘toys’ this might sound a bit basic but once all these boxes go into storage they all look the same and you won’t be able to remember what is in what boxes a few months down the line. As a result of doing this when it comes to moving out and unloading the unit you will be able to find everything you are looking for so much faster thus saving time.

This is one tip that doesn’t get enough credit and that’s keep all your boxes the same size, if you keep all your boxes the same size and pack them full you can stack them on top of each other perfectly and make the most of every inch of space. Boxes don’t stack well if they are all different sizes and you will end up wasting space. If a box isn’t quite full fill it with something like news paper so the box doesn’t collapse in on itself. Should you wish to buy boxes from us here is a link to our online store: https://tiger-storage.co.uk/shop/

When it comes to packing out your unit, organise the unit by putting the least needed things at the back and the most used things at the front for easy access this is only relevant if you will be coming and going from your unit, if you are putting it in and leaving it and this isn’t an issue then pack it as tight as possible.

If you can break it down do it! The thought of breaking furniture down to rebuild it at a later date is a headache but it means you will be able to utilise your unit space so much more efficiently as a result you might save yourself money because you won’t need such a big unit.

What happens if I still can’t fit it all in? Don’t worry, upgrading your unit is always an option. If you find you still can’t get it all in you can upgrade to a bigger unit or you can take out a secondary unit for anything you couldn’t quite make fit.

Clothes Storage

Good news winter is on its way out! You know what that means, time to get the summer cloths on and pack those bulky winter cloths away! However, where are you going to put them? We know how frustrating it can be having nowhere to put all your winter cloths so why not put them into storage for the summer and keep your bedroom clutter free.

Did you know that clothes are one of the biggest forms of clutter in the average house hold so how good would it be to put all your unwanted clothes into storage and only keep the ones you need, well at Tiger Self Storage

you can! We have ideal storage options for you that are perfect when it comes to decluttering your wardrobe. We understand how frustrating it can be having wardrobes full of nice cloths that you don’t want to get rid of but you just don’t have the space for.

It doesn’t just have to be for the summer, you can keep your perfect unit for as long as you want so as the seasons change you can organise your storage around what you need and when you will need it.

When it comes to storing clothes, we recommend one of two ways to store. The first way is put everything in vacuumed bags, you can fill the bag as much as you like then suck all the air out of it and have it vacuumed packed for maximum storage space. The other options is stackable plastic boxes, these are great because you can fit a lot of items in and stack them perfectly saving some much space in your unit or locker, using these storing options your things will also stay dust free.

Moving Home

Moving home can be a stressful time but when it comes to storage we want to make it as easy as possible for you.

We try to be as flexible as possible we it comes to moving in, we can offer you a unit on the day you need it or you can schedule a date you wish to move in. Sometimes out clients need units right away, in that case you can take a unit on any given day as long as you have 2 forms of ID with you or you can put a £10.00 reservation fee down to guarantee yourself a specific unit, this gives you a 30 day time period where you can come in at any point within those 30 days and take your unit out whenever is best for you. If you reserve a unit for a specific date but want the unit early that is also something we can do for you.

A lot of people don’t know this but all clients also have the option to transfer units, this means you can transfer between a smaller or a bigger unit depending on what your storage needs are. For example, if you take out a unit and start filling it on the lead up to your house sale and fill that unit you can transfer to a bigger unit to keep all your items in one place. The same goes for moving into a smaller unit, its very common that people still need storage after a house move but do not need such a big unit, as a result we can transfer you to a smaller unit on the same day.

Archive Storage

What is archive storage and why do we need it?

It is a legal requirement for a business to keep certain paperwork for 6 years before they can legally dispose of important documentation, as a result offices and homes get clogged up with years and years of paperwork that most likely will never see the light of day. So how do we get around this problem, storage of course! Putting them into storage is one of the safest things you can do and you can come back and refer to them at any point should you ever need to go through your old documents.

Who doesn’t want a clean office?

Are you feed up with having an office full of old paperwork that you can’t get rid of? Then storage is the perfect solution for you, here at Tiger Self Storage we offer units from big to small to tailor for everyone’s needs. This means that we will have a perfect unit for you.

It’s extremely convenient to have your files archive away properly, for example you can have racking in the unit labelled A-Z and store the documents alphabetically to find exactly what you are looking for in a matter of minutes rather than going through box after box trying to find the right paperwork.

Do you ever just look around your house and feel so small in a room so big because it’s full of things you don’t want to throw away but don’t have any space for? If that’s the case then decluttering is the answer for you.

Start 2020 right and re-evaluate what you really need and what you don’t. Anything you need but don’t have the space for should go into storage. One of the first things to focus on is your Christmas decorations as Christmas has passed now what a good idea it would be to put all your Christmas decorations into storage rather than having it in a spare room taking up space at home.

Decluttering can make you feel really good, it feels good to let go of things you don’t need any more, it might sound really obvious but you will also have so much more space. Everyone has that junk room in their house that they are afraid to admit to having but how nice would it be to have that as a room you actually use, having a good clear out will make you feel better about the space you are living in. It also gives you more freedom, if you have a house full of things you don’t need it will tie you down into keeping hold of them and therefore putting them into storage is the perfect solution. You aren’t getting rid of it just putting it away in a safe environment. It might sound obvious but it will make cleaning so much easier, the less mess you have in the first place the quicker doing the cleaning will be, cleaning is a chore so my not make it easier on yourself.

It’s said that having a clear home gives you a clear mind.

So how do we come into this, well we offer units from 10 square foot all the way up to 200 square foot which are perfect for storing personal items that you don’t want to get rid of.
