There are a lot of reasons why our homes end up looking dishevelled and out-of-control. Our lives are busy and when they’re not busy, we’re often tired. Things start to build up. From unwanted Christmas gifts we’re too polite to get rid of, to mementos from holidays and day trips and all the leaflets that come through the door in between, we just end up with a lot of stuff.
‘A tidy house is a tidy mind’ as the adage goes and whilst there is the occasional Einstein who can produce order from chaos (his work space was notoriously untidy), most of us experience stress, discomfort and unhappiness if our surroundings are cluttered. Living minimally is a great way of reducing stress. Too much visual stimulation is bad for us but of course sometimes our homes simply aren’t large enough for all of our essential items.
If you are de-cluttering your home the chances are there is a lot you can throw out or donate but likewise there are bound to be items that you can neither part with nor need in your physical environment on a daily basis. A lock-up garage is one alternative. Lock up Garages have over 900 locations nationwide so check out whether we can serve you locally.
The lock-ups are a great storage solution and can be used in multiple ways. If you have downsized your home, are custodians of someone else’s property while they are out of the country, or are merely in possession of bulky items that take up too much space in the home, a lock up garage might be the perfect solution. With increasing numbers of people now living in modern apartments with less storage in the form of attics and basements, lock up garages have stepped in to meet the need.
