Too much junk in your storage unit? The classic storage unit clutter is everything to toys, old magazines, outdated cassette tapes and holiday decorations. It’s not uncommon for most people to hold onto mementos from the past. Storage units are often forgot about along with all the accumulating junk inside it. They very rarely get the proper “spring cleaning” treatment that they deserve. After all, you’re storing those precious belongings, why not give it some extra TLC this spring season.

So if you wish to properly preserve those special belongings, it’s highly recommended to regularly clean out and organize your storage unit, at least a few times a year. This way, you’ll be able to easily access your items and find exactly what you need, when you need too. You will also be able to make sure that college CD collection is well kept and still in relatively good condition for years to come. Just in case you need to show your grandchildren what CD’s looked like. Another great bonus for spring cleaning…Garage Sale! Make a few extra bucks from those unwanted items and free up some space in your storage unit.

You’re probably asking yourself, where do I start? Gather the necessary cleaning supplies and roll up your sleeves! The first step is probably the most labor-intensive if you have big items, like furniture, and probably won’t be an easy task, but I promise you it will be worth it in the end. Clearing out the unit completely will help you clean out the space as thoroughly as possible and remove unwanted junk along the way that no longer serves your or has that special sentiment it once did. This is also the perfect time to organize and consolidate items into fewer containers. Everything should have a place. Also, make sure to label everything to make it easier to find later.

After all that hard work and letting go of a few emotional attachments, it’s time to put those items back in storage. The items that remain need to be divided into – Trash/Recycle, Sell or Donate. Once that’s done, immediately haul the piles to their appropriate destinations. You may have found that you’ve eliminated enough clutter that you can downsize to a smaller unit. Bargain Storage will help you determine what fits in the different storage unit sizes they provide. Now you’re ready to enjoy Spring clutter free!
