10 Tell-Tale Signs You Need Self-Storage Image

If getting a self-storage unit has crossed your mind but aren’t sure if you really need one, observe your living space. Does it feel suffocating with all the clutter in your home? Do you have an excess amount of clothes that you have not worn in a long time? Do you have too much furniture that your home feels cramped?  Are all these things getting in the way of a happy and comfortable living space?

If your answer is a solid yes, then it will surely benefit you to visit our storage company and rent a self-storage unit. Let’s dig into details with these 10 tell-tale signs that tell you the need for self-storage.

1. You Have A Hard Time Finding Your Belongings

This happens to everyone. We hold onto the things we’ve collected over the years only to realize they have become clutter and have taken over our space and our lives. As time passes by, these little trinkets you have been holding for so long have either kept you from finding what you need or have wasted your time in searching for your belongings. 

2. You Have An Excess Amount Of Clothes

We get it, you love fashion! Shopping for new clothes makes you happy. However, if you have clothes lying around your home that have not been worn for ages, it’s high time to consider a self-storage unit before these accumulate and clutter. You can worry about what to do with your clothes after you store it properly. You can profit from it by organizing a yard sale or by donating it to charity. Until then, a self-storage unit is the best place to keep them.

3. Your Furniture Is Taking Over Your Home

If your love for furniture has gotten control of your home, consider keeping some of it for storage. You can always take it back to rearrange your home. Consider it as a closet for your furniture. Our storage company can keep it safe for you, until the next season. 

4. You Have Not Invited People Over For A Long Time

When was the last time you invited friends to come over your home? Inviting people over is a way to share our life with the people closest to us; and doesn’t it feel good to be able to host a gathering at your own home? Whether it’s for a birthday or any other celebration, it’s good to have people coming over your space, without having to worry about how your home looks.

5. You Feel Embarrassed About Your Clutter

Clutter is embarrassing, and it may lower your self-esteem.  A cluttered home is full of negative energy. It is normal to feel flustered from your cluttered home, but you should take action in overcoming it. Start by getting rid of the things you don’t need and arrange your home bit by bit. You can always allocate some time every week to declutter. These steps will eventually result in a home that you can be proud of.

6. You’re Considering Getting Rid of Items You Love

Letting go of the items you love is a difficult process, especially the ones that hold a deep sentimental value. If your only option to free up space is to dispose of your most-loved belongings, a self-storage unit can be your best solution. 

7. The Clutter Maybe Draining Your Energy

A cluttered home may let you feel anxious, vulnerable, defeated, and overwhelmed which may be a sign that the clutter is draining your energy.  An untidy and cramped living space may make it difficult for you to relax and can prevent you from being creative and productive.

8. You’re In  Need Space For a Home Office

If you are working from home, it’s important to make a space that’s conducive to concentration and productivity. If you have so many things in your house, you will not be able to make room for an effective workspace. 

9. You Often Feel Lazy And Unmotivated

Several studies have proven that the way we keep our homes reflects our state of mind. This, in turn, affects productivity. We tend to get more things done in a tidy and uncluttered home. However, a cramped home with plenty of visual distractions will make you less productive, lazy and unmotivated.

10. You Feel Your Living Space Is Getting Smaller

If you feel that your home is getting smaller and smaller as time passes, this is a sure-fire sign that you are in need of a self-storage unit. 

If you are experiencing most of these signs, we don’t need to stress your need for extra storage. Do yourself a favor and visit us before your belongings get the better of you.
