The year is only a few days from being over and like millions of others, you may have begun thinking about your New Year’s resolutions. You may have already written some of them down, while you’re still pondering others and wondering whether or not they’re attainable. You may want to be healthier in 2018, or see more of the world, and it’s important to remember that you can reach any goal you make, as long as you’re willing to put in the time and effort. At EZ Storage® in Detroit, we can provide the self-storage you need so that you can focus on more important things!

Keeping Your House Organized

dreamstime_xxl_12919302 (1)Perhaps one of your resolutions for 2018 is to keep your house more organized. Instead of clutter creeping into your daily life, you want to find a secure spot for those belongings that are taking up valuable space. While the basement or garage can be good options, you want to use those areas for other things, and boxes and tubs can often get in the way. With an affordable storage unit from one of our facilities, you can keep your things safe and sound, as well as out of the way.

Travel the Globe

If you’re graduating from high school or college in 2018, your plan may be to travel the globe and experience new things before you begin the next chapter of your life. If you’ve thought about where you’d like to go, and you’re already looking at plane and train tickets, it can be a good idea to find a secure spot to store your belongings while you’re away. We offer month-to-month storage leases, so you can rent a unit for the time you need, and then pick everything up when you return. You can also designate an emergency contact to manage your account while you’re off seeing the world.

Getting Rid of Old Belongings

dreamstime_3738407Every year, you tell yourself that you’re going to go through the house and get rid of those old things that you no longer need or want. You may start in January and get through a few rooms, but by the time February and March come around, you’ve lost momentum and you move on to something else. Getting rid of those belongings you no longer need can be a great way to ease the physical burden of keeping an organized house, as well as the emotional burden of holding on to possessions.

If you have items that you want to put on a garage or yard sale, or you want to donate certain things to charities and nonprofits, begin by making three boxes – one for items that you want to sell, one for things you’ll donate, and one for things you want to keep. Once they’re full, take the items for sale and donation and put them by the front door. You can then put the things you’ve kept back into the drawer and closet, organizing them how you want. As for the sale and donation boxes, you can put them in storage until the date of the sale, or when you decide which charity or nonprofit you want to support.

New Year’s resolutions don’t have to be intimidating, and with the right approach, you can achieve your goals. Instead of setting one or two big goals for 2018, why not set some smaller benchmarks for each month? You may find that you are much less stressed about keeping your resolutions, and you can feel a greater sense of accomplishment when you complete one.

If you need self-storage in 2018, come to EZ Storage® in Detroit today. We have locations all across the metro area, and the staff at each one will be able to help you find the ideal unit.

We look forward to meeting you!
