Many of us have tons of items in storage that we completely forget about over time. These items are doing nothing more than collecting dust and taking up space. It is a good idea to consider what you have in storage, especially if it is at a hired storage center or if it is taking up space in your home that could be put to better use. You can then reconsider items and see if you can’t come up with new ways to use them or have a clearance company come and take them away for you.
Reclaiming and Rethinking
The new green-conscious person is learning to look at things through green-tinted glasses and see something that might once have appeared shabby and sad as something attractive and worthy of reconsideration. From old worn chairs missing a leg to a set of dresser drawers that are a little off-kilter, suddenly old items can be looked at from a new perspective. The green eye will note an old chair has a ladder back and use it in the garden as a trellis. They might see a dresser and decide to make it into a vanity for their bathroom. It is all about looking at things that were once something that would be sent to the dump and finding ways to reuse them so they don’t create more rubbish and clutter. And if you can’t think of something to do with them then call in the house clearance experts Clearance Solutions Ltd who will take them away and find someone who does.
Reducing for Space
When your home is cluttered with items you no longer need they are doing nothing but taking up valuable space. Taking a look through your unused rooms, attic and garage will allow you to clear out unwanted items and offer them to someone else who might have a good use for them. You may also suddenly discover what once seemed like a pokey little attic is now a perfect spot to paint, throw down a carpet and place a bed or desk and suddenly you have more space in your home. You might discover your garage makes an excellent spot to take up a hobby or that your room that is packed to the rafters with boxes and old furniture is a gem of a space ideal for guests, an office or even a gym space.
If you have been paying for storage space for more than a year you have to wonder if you will ever actually need any of that junk again. You are paying out good money for that storage space. Imagine what you could do if you were to take that money and put it into a savings account for yourself or your kids? An average size storage space can range from 12 to 25 pounds per week and if you haven’t made long term arrangements it is more likely as much as 55 pounds per week. Having a clearance company come and take it off your hands will free up some money that will be better spent elsewhere.
