With Christmas only 15 weeks away, now is a great time to think about clearing out your old, unwanted possessions in preparation for the holiday season. To help you get started, our team at Arden Self Storage have comprised some top tips to help you carry out an effective home purge.
What You Will do:
The aim of this idea is to focus on one room at a time and organise your possessions into the relevant boxes:
Once you have decided what you want to keep, choose a number and don’t keep any objects that exceed this. For example, if your magic number is four; then don’t keep any more than four vases in your living room. The only exception to this rule are books, everything else needs to be adhered to strictly for optimum results. Cutting back on unnecessary items will open your room more, making it feel larger and fresher.
