How Much Stuff Do You Have?

Family's personal garage and text "How much stuff do you have?"

It’s not a question that many people like to ask, but it’s an important one all the same. At EZ Storage® in St. Louis, we love helping people find the perfect self-storage options, no matter if it’s for a few boxes of clothes, or for all the stuff that’s cluttering up their basement, attic, or garage.

Taking inventory of all of your stuff is a great way to know exactly what you have, and how much of it there is. There may be some items that you’re willing to part with, while other items, such as family heirlooms and valuable collectibles, you want to keep safe and secure. At our metro-area storage facilities, you can find the right unit for anything that you want to protect.

Minimizing Your Possessions

dreamstime_xxl_88127048If you’re someone who likes to live with as little as possible, then you might feel uneasy when your home begins to feel cluttered. Minimizing the amount of possessions you have can be a great way to relieve that burden, and tossing or donating items you no longer want can be a great place to start. However, what do you do with those one or two boxes of possessions that you want to keep, but don’t have room for in the house?

A small storage unit, such as a 5’x5’ or 5’x10’ space, can be perfect for those few belongings that you want to keep, just not at your house. Our staff can help you find the right unit, and you’ll know that your things are safe and sound.

Maximizing Your Living Space

Another benefit to taking stock of your stuff can be seeing how it’s impacting your living space. The flat screen TV on the wall doesn’t take up much physical space, but the shelves full of movies below it do. You may love books, but if they begin to pile up on your end tables or your couch, then it might be time to assess their value. Boxing some things up and putting them in storage will get them out the way, and you can still retrieve them should you decide that you want them.

Optimizing Your Life

109You’re always trying to be a better person, and self-improvement often comes with what we surround ourselves with and what we choose to be important. As you’re optimizing your life, take some time to go through your stuff and decide what you really need in your house. If you’ve been keeping some things for years because of their sentimental value, but you’re ready for them to be out of the house, then finding a self-storage unit can be the best option. For those items that are simply taking up space, both physically and mentally, take advantage of the opportunity and donate them to a local charity, or find a friend or relative who could make use of certain things.

At EZ Storage®, we’re always happy to help people find the right storage solutions, no matter how much stuff they have. If you’re looking for an affordable unit, then visit one of our St. Louis locations today.

We look forward to meeting you!
