Outdated Items to Get Rid of

Has your self-storage unit at Elite Storage in Lafayette, CO taken a turn for the worse when it comes to organization and useless items? It may be time to go through the clutter and get rid of some of the outdated items in your unit. Listed below are some of the items you might want to consider parting ways with.

Outgrown Toys

If you have children then you know how many toys your child will go through over the years. If you are storing them in your storage unit you many need to reevaluate the toys you should keep, donate, or toss. You can keep a few of the more novel or interesting toys for nostalgia’s sake. Reach out to your family and friends with growing children and see if they could have a use for the toys. If your plastic toys have been in storage for over 20 years you should probably toss them.


When it comes to getting rid of some furniture you should do some research. If you like it, keep it. If it’s broken or the wrong color, repaint or repair it. If you can’t see yourself making an effort to keep it or fix it then do some research to see how much you can sell it for or donate it. Take photos of the furniture and email them to your local antique shop, consignment store or estate auction agent to find a buyer.


No matter what it is that you have collected over the years it is only worth keeping if you can make a profit off of it. This will also take some research but could be worth it. If it’s authentic and vintage, it could be worth your while to list it on eBay. If it has regional or local interest, an estate seller or auctioneer might be interested. If you find that your collection isn’t as valuable as you had hoped then don’t be afraid to part ways. Sell what you can and donate the rest.

While it may take some time and effort you will be thankful for a clean and organized unit that isn’t full of items you just won’t use any time soon. Get your Self Storage Unit at Elite Storage in Lafayette, CO back in working order.
