New Year’s Resolutions

Barely has Christmas passed, and we’ll thinking about New Year’s Resolutions. How can easyStorage help?

Straight after Christmas, New Year looms. Many of us will be glad to see the back of 2020,and be hoping that 2021 will be a kinder year.

At the end of 2019, a YouGov survey revealed the most common New Year’s resolutions. Some we can’t  help you with – sorry. Losing weight and exercising are down to you, as is spending more time volunteering. We’re not sure that we can help with making new friends either, although our franchisees and staff are a really friendly bunch.

As the same survey revealed that few of us stick to our resolutions - indeed most of us make the same ones every year - here’s a few we CAN help with.

Saving money

Around 30% of people in the YouGov survey named ‘Sticking to a budget’ as a New Year’s resolution. easyStorage can help here: we are about half the price of traditional self-storage.

New job?

Around 15% of people in the survey said they’ll be looking for a new job. Sadly, we think this number will have gone up for 2020.

From drivers to marketers, from sales to loaders, here’s a list of our current vacancies: Jobs with easyStorage

Of course, you might even think about becoming an easyStorage franchisee, especially in the North of England. There’s some more information here: About the easyStorage Franchise.

You can also look through our blog to 'meet' some of our newer franchisees, or come along to one of our discovery days.


Stressing Less

We can’t help with everything, of course. We are, after all, just a storage company, albeit, we think, rather a special one.

But perhaps there will be something in this blog post, written for Stress Awareness Day, might help: Stress Awareness Day.


For the rest of us

Only 58% of us, according to the YouGov survey, were making resolutions.

The following are resolutions that I make regularly, so I’m adding them here for the other 42% - like me - to think about:



From visualisation to the order of clearing up, here are some tips to help you on your way: Tips for decluttering

I regularly resolve to have a good old tidy out, so I was amazed not to find this one the 'resolutions' list.

Moving house:

I was amazed this on wasn't on the list as well.

Whether you're downsizing or moving for other reasons, we created a small series of moving home guides this year which might be useful:

- Our ‘Moving House Checklist

- Some tips for preparing to sell

- And some other tips to help renting out your property


Whatever you resolve to do or not do, we at easyStorage hope you have a fabulous New Year.
