The ultimate decluttering guide for a fresh start

A young couple packs items into a boxes to declutter their home.

Have you committed to decluttering your home in the New Year? Getting rid of unused items and making space in the home plays a key role in boosting your mood and enhancing productivity. 

There are many reasons why people add “Decluttering” to their list of New Year resolutions. The simple process is known to purge your life of unnecessary clutter, reducing stress and anxiety and boosting overall productivity. 

If you’re feeling overwhelmed and wondering where to start, then you’ve come to the right place! We’ve created the ultimate decluttering guide to get your life in order and ready for a fresh start. 

Set a timeline and goals

Outlining a plan will make the decluttering process more manageable. Begin by setting specific goals and making a note of your clutter hotspots. Allocate a certain amount of time to each goal and stick to the plan. 

Determine strict guidelines

It’s easy to get caught up in the moment and keep items that no longer serve a purpose. On the other hand, you may end up throwing items away and then later regret it.

Before you begin decluttering, determine a few guidelines to make your decision-making process easier. Consider whether items can be digitised, get rid of duplicates, and ask yourself when you last used the item. If it has been more than a year then it’s time to say goodbye. 

Start with a small area

Depending on the size of your home, decluttering can be a daunting task. Start with a small area and slowly work your way through the rest of your home. Taking it slow and steady will prevent any moments of fluster and stress. 

Create a sorting system

There’s no single way to deal with an unused item. We recommend the popular three-box method to help you decide.

  1. Keep the items that are useful in your daily life
  2. Get rid of items that you no longer use (either throw out or donate)
  3. Put seasonal or sentimental items in a storage space

As you move through your house, you can decide what to do with your household belongings, based on your predetermined guidelines. 

Pick a storage space

Bulky winter clothing and sentimental heirlooms can take up a lot of space in the home, without serving much use when out of season. Finding a storage space for these items allows you to open up space in the home without giving up your belongings. There are various places around the house where you can store excess items such as the garage or attic, but a storage unit is perhaps the easiest and most convenient way to free up space.

At Storage World, we offer a variety of different size units across the broader Manchester area. If you need a secure and affordable space to serve as an extension of your home, then we’d be honoured to keep your items. Contact us today to find out more about our offerings and how you can secure your spot.

A Quick and Easy Process

Quick and easy to reserve and simple sign up process when I arrived. I had under estimated my load size and needed more space which the guys on site quickly arranged for me. Very helpful and friendly staff. A recommended company

Same Day Move In

Fantastic experience. Needed storage quickly and the staff were on hand to help get everything sorted as fast as possible – was in the same day. They even helped to make sure I got the right size unit so I didn’t over pay – they could have sold me a far bigger one but wanted to make sure I got the best deal and was happy – that doesn’t happen very often! Well Done!

Extremely Helpful Staff

Extremely helpful staff, talked me through everything, gave me a tour of the facility, the sign up process was very straight forward, and most important excellent value for money.

Trolleys and Good Lighting

Great storage with lots of trolleys and good lighting. Lots of parking bays so it is easy to park close to the storage unit entrance. A friendly and helpful team (Anthony and Nick) that get back to you quickly by email or phone.

Business Self Storage

Can’t praise the guys enough, Tricia initially found me a unit over year ago and patiently kept me up to date on availability as I was unable to move my business as quickly as I’d hoped. All the staff are friendly and helpful. A safe and clean place to work.
