We are all amazed at what we accumulate after time. When you start to notice that you’re running out of storage space in your home, this can be a sign. You have to get rid of some of your stuff! If it is time for you to declutter and organise your home, here are a few tips from My Store-Y Self Storage in Singapore.


Donate to Charity

If you want to get rid of some of your belongings but think it’s shame to throw them out, then consider donating them to charities and those less fortunate than yourself. Items such as clothes (still in good condition), children’s toys and old furniture are in high demand by most charities. This solution clears out your home while also helping others, giving you the best of both worlds.

Look to get rid of the really big items first, of course!

Sometimes it’s not a matter of how much stuff you have but how you have it organized. If you are a fan of Marie Kondo, then now is time to sit down, follow her words of wisdom and organise every inch of your home. You might be able to make more room for your items if you give yourself more shelves and other organizational items to help keep things where they belong. Organising your belongings down to each individual draw as Marie Kondo suggests, can also help you determine what things don’t necessarily fit in your organizational system and what needs to go.
