Tips for Dealing with Too Much Stuff

The season of gift giving is always a reminder of how much stuff we collect over the course of the year. And figuring out what to do with the excess is a big challenge. In this blog, we offer tips for sailing into the new year clutter-free and organized.


The holiday season always offers an opportunity to help those less fortunate. Most local charities and non-profit organizations ramp up collection efforts this time of year. Some charities even offer free pickup of unneeded clothing and household items. And don’t forget to write off your donations to save on your taxes!

Declutter Your Home

If you’re throwing a holiday party, you don’t want your guests packed like sardines in your home. Find a reliable and secure self-storage facility and use it to store excess furniture, photos and other household items. Remember to choose a self-storage provider who offers flexible unit sizes and a variety of billing and invoicing options to meet your needs. And don’t forget to use your self-storage unit to store those holiday decorations when the season is past!


Credit card offers, paper bills, and junk mail piles up over the course of the year. But with the rush of the holiday season, you may not have time to hand-feed documents through a paper shredder. A drop-off shredding service makes it easy to destroy paperwork: you drop it off, and it’s professionally shredded for you. Now that’s a solution that will give you more time to shop!

Reorganize Your Office

Whether you have a home office or business, clutter kills your productivity, so why not start the upcoming year on the right foot? Self storage offers an excellent solution for storing overstock, excessive inventory and miscellaneous business related supplies. You have easy access to your unit, so when you need something, it’s available.

Ask for Less

The best part of the holiday season is giving. So instead of fine-tuning your wish list, put more effort into giving quality time to those you love and cherish. It’s what the holidays are all about!

Don’t let clutter put a damper on the holiday season; use these decluttering tips to make the most of the holidays and beyond!
