2020 has just arrived, and with a new year comes New Year’s resolutions. However, trying to keep New Year’s resolutions is often easier said than done. There are things that you can do to help you meet your annual objectives with minimal effort. For instance, storage units can help you meet some of your New Year goals with a little bit of forethought and planning.
In this blog post, we will delve into storage units in North York and how they can help you with New Year’s resolutions.
Resolution: Decluttering and Organizing
First and foremost, you will need to set aside some time to declutter and organize your home. You may need to set up a few decluttering sessions, as trying to declutter and organize your entire home in a single day may prove to be difficult or impossible. Then, before the momentous day arrives, you will need to gather a few handy supplies so that you will be well-prepared before you actually start decluttering and organizing your items.
For instance, we would suggest that you purchase a few wardrobe boxes, as well as a few moving boxes. We would also recommend that you buy bubble wrap, stretch wrap, and packing tape to complete your supplies checklist.
Next, you will need to create three piles to help you declutter and organize your home. That is, one pile will be arranged for the items that you will want to keep, as these items are used often in and around the home.
The second pile should be reserved for storage. Here is where storage units will come in handy, as they can be used to store valuables that you use either seasonally or occasionally. Your self-storage unit can be used to store such items so that you can have more space in your rooms to either relax or ruminate in or to house other items.
You may also need more space in your garage for something like a second car, so a self-storage unit can serve as a means to help you declutter and organize your garage as well.
The third and final pile should be reserved for items that you wish to sell. You can sell unwanted items at either a garage sale or online on auction sites such as eBay, or classified sites such as Kijiji or Craigslist. Any items that you are unable to sell can be donated to Good Will where they can benefit the less fortunate.
Now that you are better prepared in terms of what items to keep, store, and sell or donate, the third step is booking a storage unit. Fortunately, there are many different price points and options to choose from.
For example, you can opt for a unit that boasts a heated drive-through, or an exterior access drive-up unit instead. Those on a tight budget or who only have a few items that they wish to store can also opt for smaller units, such as 4’’ x 6’’ lock-ups if they wish, albeit much larger units are also available for monolithic declutter projects.
Resolution: Moving to a New Home
Many people will opt to move to a new home to kick off the new year with a festive bang. Here, investing in a storage unit can pay great dividends, as you can collect all of the gadgets, appliances, furniture, and trinkets that you want to get rid of and store them in your rented unit.
Then, after you have settled into your new home and have some time, you can deal with the miscellaneous items that have been stored safely and soundly in your storage unit.
Or, you can delve into your storage unit and extract any items that you do have a use for but needed to temporarily store elsewhere while working on your new home or on a new renovation project.
For instance, you may need to temporarily store a new refrigerator, dishwasher, and washing machine in a storage unit until you finalize the move. Then, once you have settled into your new home you can take your new appliances from the storage unit and then have them installed into your new home when you are ready to do so.
Resolution: Travelling the World
Some people like to plan their vacations around the new year, so if you plan on taking some time off for some much-needed R&R during January to get away from the cold and snow, then a self-storage facility may prove to be quite useful.
That is, if you are planning on being away from your home for a prolonged period of time, then you can rent a self-storage unit and use it to store your most valuable assets in a safe and secure environment without having to worry about them being stolen or damaged while you are away.
Many such units are well-ventilated, spacious, and include 24/7 monitoring services, as well as climate-control features, that will ensure that no harm will come to your most prized valuables, either from human or natural sources.
Resolution: Home Renovation Projects
Finally, if you are thinking of starting a big home renovation project, then storage units may help you meet your resolutions for the new year. That is, you can rent out a self-storage unit and use it to safely keep your belongings until you finalize your home makeover project.
In sum, not all storage units in North York are created equal, nor are their suppliers and manufacturers. And so that is why you need to perform the necessary due diligence to help you choose a provider and facility that prioritizes security, reliability, and quality above the bottom line.
