easyStorage: Your Partner in Home Decluttering

Some say, “two heads are better than one.” Solving a problem will be easier and faster if people are willing to collaborate to achieve a common goal. Decluttering is a kind of problem that every household faces. From piles of clothes, shoes, books, and sports equipment up to old furniture and appliances -- these are the common things that people find hard to manage. Especially, if you are a very sentimental person who cannot let go of things easily or if you are very busy with your job and don’t have the time to do such a task. But don’t stress yourself out as every problem has a solution and that is why easyStorage is here to lend a helping hand in decluttering your home.

There are lots of benefits that decluttering can bring into a person’s life. I believe more than the tangible effect, it’s the positive impact it resonates in a home when all things are clean and tidy. According to neuroscientists from Princeton University,

"Physical clutter in your surroundings competes for your attention, resulting in decreased performance and increased stress.”

See the negative impact clutter can bring to you? It doesn’t only make your home look disorganized, but it can also affect other areas of your life. Don't wait for the day when you have to suffer the circumstances of not decluttering our home.

Decluttering --- this task may sound simple, but look at it from a wider perspective. Imagine the positive effect it can bring to your life. That’s why in partnership with easyStorage, I have collated some of the methods you may want to consider in taking this challenge.

In my search for various decluttering methods on the web, I have listed some of the easiest and the achievable methods to declutter, especially for first-timers and beginners. Below are some of the creative ideas you can follow to make your decluttering easy.

Make a Declutter Checklist

This is an easy way to jumpstart the task. Creating a list of which part of the house you should start decluttering will make things easier, instead of looking at the entire space and ended up being overwhelmed by the amount of work you have to accomplish. From the list, you may cross out each task that is already completed. That way, you will have a visual reference on how you are lessening the work, one step at a time!

Take the 5-minute Challenge

This one is probably the easiest out of the many methods I have found on the internet. This is ideal for busy people. Or if someone is just simply overwhelmed by the decluttering task and doesn't know where to start.

You may allot 5 minutes of your day in sorting out the things that must be decluttered. If you do this every day, you will most likely finish at least 20 percent of the task, without even noticing it.

Take a Trash Bag with You

This method is one fun way of decluttering. You may take two trash bags with you, one for the "trash" and the other is for either "donate or undecided" stuff. As you stroll around your house, you may pick things along the way and decide which items should go to which trash bag. If you this every day, say 20 minutes, you will be able to sort out extra stuff without even realizing it. Plus, it will help you do a little cardio exercise. Hitting two birds with one stone!

Four Box Method

You can be more creative with this method. You may place these four boxes in one common area of your house or apartment where other members of the family can also see them. Label them (1) for trash, (2) for donation, (3) for keeps, and (4) for relocation. If everybody participates in this task, you will be able to declutter your house in no time! Plus, it's a bonding activity! Who wouldn't want that?

Take a Before and After Photo

You may choose one specific area in your house to do this method. Let’s say, the kitchen. Take a photo of when it looks cluttered. Then, start pulling out the stuff you no longer need. Once done, take a photo of the decluttered area and compare it from the "before" photo. Of course, seeing the difference will give you a sense of accomplishment and will surely encourage you to do better with the next room until you are done with the entire house!

See? There are feasible ways of decluttering your home. All you have to do is find which works best for you. But whichever method you take, expect that there will still be “undecided” items. Those things that you don’t want to let go of. These might be some old family heirlooms that you still want to protect just like a treasure, sports equipment and tools, and piled up documents that cannot be disposed of. This is where easyStorage comes in. easyStorage will make the work easy for you! Once you have sorted the stuff belonging to the "undecided" category, all you have to do is contact eastStorage to book a storage unit. Yes! You have to put these "undecided" items and those for donations in a storage facility so that your home remains clean and clear.

easyStorage is always ready to provide an ideal place to put your items. What’s great about easyStorage is that they give a hassle-free service in moving and storing your items. They have a free van for the collection and return of items. Yes, you heard that right!

Also, easyStorage has the top of the notch climate-controlled facilities. Each storage unit is free from molds and leaks and can prevent weather-related damages.

Another edge of easyStorage is that security is one of their top priorities. Rest assured that your valuables are secured with them --- from the moment they pick them up to storing them in their safe and secure storage facilities.

Last but not the least, easyStorage has a flexible approach with their pricing. They offer a month-to-month basis if in case you’re still undecided on how long you want to store with them. Also, they really are no sneaky when it comes to additional charges. They offer additional services if you ONLY need them. They will not impose it nor surprise you in your billing!

They aim to make moving and storing stress-free and hassle-free for their customers! How good is that? As I have said earlier, collaboration is such an effective way of completing a task.
