Cleaning Up the Clutter – How Storage Units Can Help

indoor storage

Cleaning up clutter and streamlining your home is trending as people throughout the country strive to simplify.  While this may sound easy, the struggle to minimize becomes apparent when faced with the possibility of selling or throwing away keepsakes and items you have been hanging on to over the years.  The good news is that storage facilities afford you the best of both worlds.  You can simplify and still retain some of the keepsakes you just can’t bear to trash or sell.

Let’s take a look at some popular items people rent storage space for to help de-clutter their homes:


Do you still have the Matchbox cars you collected as a kid?  Has your child outgrown their first bicycle but you are not ready to get rid of it? Placing old toys, bicycles and other items you and/or your children no longer use in a secured storage unit is a perfect way to cut the clutter.


Do you still have that Cookie Monster cookie jar from when your children were little?  Or, how about old records, tapes or CDs?  Maybe some classic lunch boxes?  These are examples of collectibles that can easily clutter up your home.  Yet, you don’t want to throw them away.  Our climate controlled storage building is an excellent solution that allows you to keep your collectibles but not the clutter!

Dishes and Stemware

Oh, what to do with great grandma’s fine china.  Packing it up and storing it in a secured storage space is definitely an option!


Storage facilities provide the perfect way to unclutter your drawers and closets. A climate controlled storage unit allows you to preserve old clothing such as concert t-shirts, military uniforms, baby clothes and other items that you would like to keep but no longer wear.


You’ve just inherited your grandmother’s antique dining room set but have no room in your home.  Or, perhaps your first born has outgrown his or her crib and you want to keep it for their future brother or sister but don’t have the storage space in your home. You don’t have to get rid of it.  Instead consider securely storing furniture you do not use but want to keep in a climate controlled indoor storage unit.
