clear the clutter

I don’t know about you, but I have a bad habit of collecting random things such as brochures,
pamphlets, key chains, and old notebooks among many other things. I’m also not ashamed of
this habit. I save things with the intention of going through boxes of my things and reminiscing.
I’m a bit of a sap and I like going through old things with a feeling of nostalgia. I have programs
from film festivals that I sometimes stumble upon. I go through them and point out the different
films I saw and fondly remember that time of my life. Yes, I can imagine myself having boxes
of random junk, and I am okay with that. What I am not okay with is cluttering up my living
space with these papers. As much as I am okay with accumulating a wealth of papers, I don’t like
being a disorganized mess. Luckily, I don’t have enough things to clutter my apartment, but I can
expect a cluttered mess to occur sooner than later in my life. If the words “cluttered home” ring a
bit true for you, it may be time to work on a decluttering project.

A decluttering project consists of deciding what you need to get rid of to clear up your living
space. You may have items that you don’t want to throw away. Don’t go through the woes and
troubles of deciding what to let go. Instead, use a storage unit to help declutter your living
space while not having to let go of anything of importance. Storing your items in your garage
is a waste of space. You could easily have your very own workroom in your garage, an extra
refrigerator, or even be able to park your cars in your garage!


Decluttering does not mean you have to take the personality out of your living space. Decide
what works for your living area. Getting rid of things and actually throwing them away is a
difficult task. The memorabilia that you may be contemplating on throwing away may possibly
be worth something in the future. If you’re like me, you may have a few things that are taking up
space that may seem silly to get rid of, but you would still want to keep. It doesn’t need to clutter
up your living area. Think about using a storage facility to help store your things and potentially
organize your house. By taking about a few minutes a day to decide what needs to be thrown out,
stored away, or merely moved to a different part of the room can open up your home.
