Clearing Things Out Before the New Year

Although you may save the majority of your “purging” for spring cleaning in March or April, clearing some things out of your house before the New Year can make your home feel less cluttered and more comfortable. At EZ Storage® in Pittsburgh, we can help you find the perfect self-storage space for those things that you want to keep, but don’t necessarily want to keep in the house. If you’re looking for affordable unit options, visit one of our area facilities today!

Moving Furniture

dreamstime_xxl_55878066If you have holiday guests coming this year, you may already be moving some furniture around to make room for everybody. You’ve repositioned the pull-out couch in the living room so that someone can sleep on it, and you’ve brought out the extra chairs and the leaf for the dining room table. However, once the holidays are over, you may decide that you like the new configuration or that you want to rearrange your furniture so that there’s better flow between each space.

If you have chairs, couches, and other furniture that you want to hold onto, but you don’t think you’ll use in your house in the foreseeable future, storage can be a great option. You can store them until the spring, when you have your first garage sale, or when your son or daughter goes off to college next fall and needs some furniture for his or her apartment or dorm room.

Go Through the Closets

You may also need to rearrange the kids’ closets to make room for their new clothes and toys. Taking a weekend to go through the closets in your house will give you the chance to sort through things, decide what needs to be tossed, and set aside anything you want to store. You may be able to box up some clothes for donation, and you may come across a box of mementos that you want to store somewhere else.

Going through your closets gives you a chance to take stock of what you’ve had stuck in the back for a few years now, and perhaps rediscover some things you didn’t know you still had. If you have things like clothes, photo albums, and more that you need to store in a safe place, we’ll be more than happy to help you find the perfect unit.

The New Year is less than two months away, and if you’re thinking about how you can create more space in your house following the busy holiday season, contact EZ Storage® in Pittsburgh today. The staff at each of our locations will be more than happy to help you find the ideal unit for your belongings, and our month-to-month leases make it easy to find a space that fits your budget, without locking you into a long-term contract.
