Summer’s nearly gone and you should enjoy the last of the sunshine before the clocks go back – and while you’re at it, do that clearing out you’ve been putting off since the spring. That’s right, your spare room is still bursting at the seams, and like more than three-quarters of UK homeowners, you probably can’t even name five things you’ve stored there.
British homeowners just hate throwing stuff away – why else do we have more self-storage units than the whole of the rest of Europe? So just go with the flow and get your clutter out of your home and into somewhere better suited for it. For those of you in the Thames Valley, Reading Storage Solutions have flexible storage space just waiting for your unused appliances, unworn clothes and unloved gifts.
Not only does the UK lead the way in tucking things away for the proverbial rainy day, it has one of the most active industries for dreaming up new ways of storing them. Be it underbed storage baskets, in-cupboard storage drawers or good old-fashioned storage boxes, we can’t get enough of them. Maybe that’s why our homes are full to bursting with “stuff” – and the more the merrier!
Until it comes to getting rid of it, that is … more than half of us dread clearing out our long-lost junk, with the loft at the top of the list, followed closely by the spare room. The good news is, unlike our grandparents’ generation, we have alternatives to throwing it away, and many of us now use flexible self-storage units as an extension of our houses.
Cost-Effective and Convenient
Rather than fork out a small fortune on the latest storage gizmo that promises to fit an even larger quart in an ever-smaller pint pot, take an organised view of things and follow a plan. Tackle each of your crowded rooms in order and decide exactly what you need to keep at home, what you can’t bear to throw away but don’t use every day and what belongs in the skip. Then act …
Assuming you’re now looking at a neat, tidy spare room and a skip full of junk, the only task left is to find somewhere to put the things you know you’ll need someday. Your local self-storage company is the place to start. However much you’ve accumulated, you’ll find a storage unit to suit you at a price that won’t break the bank.
