The skies are blue, the weather is warm, and it’s the perfect time to fling your windows open and clear out the clutter of the winter. However, with space in UK homes at a premium, some people find that trying to sort out their possessions is a lot like playing Tetris – endlessly moving boxes around to try and make enough space to sort one out.
The solution is simple; if you need more space to sort out your possessions so that you can de-clutter your home, you can rent a garage to give you extra storage space.
The first step is to sort out things that you know you won’t need for some time; winter clothes are often very bulky, so they can take up a lot of space. Whilst you may want to keep a couple of jumpers in your drawer against the vagaries of the British weather, packing up the rest and putting it into storage for the season will give you a lot more space to work with.
Car boot sales are a great way to get rid of unwanted possessions that are still in good condition, but in order to make the best of them you need to be organised – having your garage as a staging space is a good way to achieve this. As you sort through your possessions, you can make sure that everything going to the car boot is clean and presentable, packed with similar items and stored together in the garage. This allows you to see quite clearly when you have enough stuff to go to the sale, and also allows you to arrange it ready for packing into the car. As most car boot sales open very early in the morning, you’ll be very grateful for the time you save in this way!
If you want to have a really thorough spring cleaning, or if you’re redecorating at the same time, you can move furniture from the room you’re working on to storage in the garage, allowing you to get to every inch of the carpet and walls to get them properly clean.
