Defeat Holiday Stress with Less Clutter

Women organizing and decorating dinner table with text "Defeat holiday stress with less clutter"

It may be hard to believe, but Thanksgiving is only one week away. If you’re hosting the family this year, then you might already be stressing about where everyone will sit, who’s going to stay the night, and whether or not you’ll have enough food. The holidays can be a very stressful time, and that stress can be compounded if you feel like the house is cluttered with stuff. At EZ Storage® in St. Louis, we can help you find the right self-storage unit for those things you want to move out of the house, even if it’s just for a few months.

Rearranging Your Home

dreamstime_xxl_78712346One thing you may do before your extended family arrives is to rearrange your home. You move the couch to a better spot so that everyone can see the TV while watching football, and you put the leaf in the dining room table so that everyone fits around it. There might be an end table or chair in the living room that simply doesn’t fit once you’ve rearranged, and you may not be able to move it to the basement or the guest room, since you’ll need those spaces, too. Putting furniture that you don’t need into storage for a month or two can help you feel more at ease about the comfort your home can offer.

Make Room for More Stuff

It might seem a bit counterintuitive to make room for more stuff, since you’re trying to declutter, but the holidays often come with more stuff being brought into the house in the form of presents, hand-me-downs, and more. If you don’t make room for these new belongings, then you’re just going to be piling them on top of old things, or trying to cram them into the closet next to gifts that you received last year. Clearing out a closet or two can provide you with the space you need when your relatives inevitably bring that over-sized present that you’re not sure what to do with. You don’t have to go overboard, but you’ll definitely feel better once you know you have the space for everything that everyone will bring with them this season.

At EZ Storage®, we understand that the holidays can be stressful. By rearranging and decluttering, you can get your house ready for all of the meals, visitors, and presents that come with the season. If you need somewhere to store extra furniture or those gifts you haven’t used since last year, then visit one of our storage facilities today. We have four locations in the greater St. Louis area, and each one can offer you an affordable self-storage option that meets your needs. Every unit is available on a monthly basis, so if you only need to store things from November to February, then you can rent a space for that time period.
