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.

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.
