Set a Deadline

A lot of times it is hard to find the motivation to clean out your unit. To help you when it comes to making a plan and holding yourself accountable, you will want to create a deadline. Make the deadline reasonable to accomplish and plan for any unexpected events that might occur before your set deadline. Creating a goal always helps you when it comes to completing a task.

Create Small Tasks

Trying to clean out your storage unit in one day is hard and stressful. Instead of trying to accomplish a lot in a little amount of time, break up your clean out process into small and manageable tasks over a period of time. This will make the process easier and stress free.

Avoid Throwing Items Away

As you are cleaning out your unit you may come across items you just don’t want or need anymore. Instead of just throwing it away you will want to try and find it another home. You can donate your items to your local Goodwill or even try and sell a few online. If the item is beyond repair then it is acceptable to toss it in the trash.

Avoid Storing in your Home

The whole point of your storage unit was to reduce the clutter in your home and give you the needed storage space. When cleaning out your unit you will want to avoid turning your home into a makeshift storage unit. Find a home for all the items you wish to keep and donate the rest.

Get Help

Trying to clean out your unit on your own can be difficult. If possible, enlist the help of your family and friends. Bribing them with treats always helps.
