How Portable Storage Containers Can Help You Declutter

Whatever your reasons for decluttering your home, portable storage containers are the perfect solution.

Most of us have quite a lot of excess stuff lying around the house that we only use once or twice a year, seasonally or, often, not at all. But here’s the thing, our homes shouldn’t act as storage containers. Homes should be functional, comfortable and a pleasure to live in, but if you let our belongings take over and never declutter, your home will take on a life of its own.

Helping people stay in control of their homes is why portable storage containers were invented. Whether you are trying to sell your house, move to a new home or just banish the clutter, a secure storage container that’s placed on your driveway or at the curb can help control the clutter and keep your belongings safe and organized. So, let’s take a quick look at how a portable storage or moving container will take the stress out of storage and moving.

Stage that house

When you need to sell your house, removing clutter is essential. Let house buyers see your home at its absolute best, not at its disorganized worst. Renting a portable storage container from Buddy Box will help you to organize your clutter and keep it out of the house you want to sell. Decide which clutter you want to keep and which you never use again. Throw or give away anything that you don’t need.

First impressions are everything when it comes to selling your home and have a massive impact on the number of offers you receive and the offers you receive. So, if you want a full price offer and a quick sale, declutter before you open your home to potential buyers. You want to present a clean, well-kept residence to the people who may potentially buy your home. The great news is that removing clutter will make your property look bigger, cleaner and well cared for – all important boxes to check for property buyers.

Organized, efficient, easy home moves

Portable moving containers do so much more than just helping you to declutter your home while you try to sell it. They are a safe, easy way to pack up at your old home and transport your belongings to your new home. Where you can unpack at your leisure.

When you move to your new home, make it easy to unpack by storing your things in the portable moving container until you are ready to unpack. An excellent tip from pro packers is to sort your items by category (i.e. books, clothes, games, toys, CDs, etc.) so you know what’s in each box and container. That way there are no surprises when you get to your new home.

Declutter your life

If you simply just have too much stuff, then it’s time to declutter your life. This involves more than packing things up in portable storage bins though. That works great for seasonal stuff like clothes or holiday decorations, but if you haven’t used an item in the last six months or year, it’s unlikely you will use it in the future. Donate it or toss it. You will be amazed how much stuff you’ve amassed that you don’t need. Life will be much simpler and more enjoyable when you get rid of all that extra junk!

Remember that moving containers are not just great for moving; they make great storage containers for stuff that you only use occasionally. Are you ready to start organizing your clutter and simplifying your life?
