If you find yourself struggling to control the clutter in your home it may be time to declutter and purge yourself of the items that you just don’t need. With the help of a storage unit at Elite Storage in Lafayette, CO you can store the items you just can’t part with and open up additional storage in your home. The tips below can help you to declutter your home of all the unnecessary junk you have accumulated over the years.

 

Old shoes can cause clutter and unpleasant odor in your closet. If you haven’t worn your old shoes in a while it may be time to throw them out. If your shoes are still in good shape consider donating them.

 

Unworn clothing can also take up room in your closet that could easily be used to store the items you use every day. An easy way to tell if you haven’t worn clothing in a while is by starting a 3 or 6 month period with all of your hangers turned backwards. By the end of the set term you still have backwards hangers, take them out of your closet and toss or donate them.

 

Wedding invitations, while sentimental and beautiful, are items that should be considered for tossing out. Unless you have plans for creating a scrap book or a gift for a loved one, they should be placed in the recycling bin.

 

Books can often take up a lot of space and collect a lot of dust. For avid readers, collecting books can be your decluttering downfall. Go through our books and see which ones you can donate, toss, or place in a storage unit at Elite Storage in Lafayette, CO. It is always best to keep what you are reading or plan to read and get rid of everything else.

 

Duplicate kitchen accessories can take up a lot of needed cupboard space in your kitchen. Go through all of your kitchen accessories and keep what you use most often. Consider donating or storing the rest. If it is deemed unusable go ahead and toss it.

 

Expired bills and coupons should be sorted through and thrown out. Piles of unused paper can easily clutter your office space or kitchen table. Sort through and keep only what is current.

 

Going through your home and referring to the list above can help you to free up a lot of needed space in your home. If you find yourself still needing more storage space you can always trust Elite Storage in Lafayette, CO to provide you with the storage unit you need.
