With relationships, everyone at some point as gone through a break up. The older we get the more stuff we have. If you’re sharing a house with a partner and the relationship is over, then one of you or both of you are going to be moving out, and that leaves a whole heap of stuff to be split between the two of you.
Many seek refuge with friends, sofa surfing, or bedding down in a spare room, some return back to family. The last thing anyone really wants to do is go full throttle into getting a new house on your own. You want a few weeks to regroup your thoughts and align your emotions. So what do you do with all your stuff? Storage World has the answer.
You don’t have to shrug off all your possessions like the Paula Hamilton in the classic VW Golf commercial. You’ve worked hard for those items, and the cost of re-buying everything will put you out of pocket, wouldn’t you prefer to store everything and spend that money on a decent holiday with friends? The small cost of self storage can be as little as £7 per week. Although a relationship breakdown is never a nice thing, and all you want to do is curl up on the sofa with the box set of Sex and the City and a huge tub of ice cream. Steal yourself away and think of the practicalities. The top three things to consider post break up are
1. Who gets what? Finances and possessions.
2. Where to live next?
3. How do I get my life back on track?
Pack away those old keep sakes, the photos, memorable holiday mementos and the larger items of furniture and equipment. You may feel in the moment that you’ll leave it all behind. However it may feel so right in that highly emotional moment, but, take a step back, look at things practically. The emotional keepsakes may be really challenging to see at this precise moment; however they are a part of your history. It is better to pack things away now, and revisit them a while down the road. Those mementos were of good times, and no matter how bad things are at this precise moment, that time was good.
With Storage World self storage you get time to distance yourself from the relationship break up pain and baggage, when you feel fresh you can start over, audit through the items and then make a rational decision on where they should go and what you should do with them.
