Spring cleaning, to tidy up your home
With spring officially here, so is spring cleaning. While it may not be the most glamorous time of year with all the melting snow, it is certainly a great time to get your home ready, decluttered, and organized for summer. One of the best ways to declutter your home is by storing your goods in Winnipeg in either a storage locker, or by contacting Quick Transfer to have your goods stored in our safe and secure warehouse, or our mobile storage units. Storing your goods in Winnipeg can be a great way to clean your living space up, give you more room in your home, and get organized this spring.
Here are some tips on how to get organized this spring by storing your goods in Winnipeg.
Work through your home one room at a time
When doing spring cleaning in your home and organizing what you want stored, you may be overwhelmed by the task at hand. In order to help yourself out, break it down into bite sized portions by cleaning and decluttering one room at a time. Make sure to completely finish one room before starting the next. By completely finishing one room, it can give you a sense of accomplishment, and give you optimism for the rest of the home instead of feeling dejected and not even starting. And, before you know it, you will be done!
Clean out your closets
Clothes can often fly under the radar during a good decluttering. I have often caught myself looking at jackets and thinking, well I might as well hold onto this, because who knows what kind of a summer we are going to have. When decluttering and storing your goods in Winnipeg, make sure to go through your wardrobe as well. You aren’t throwing items away, simply storing them until they are useful, like in the fall and winter months. Here are some tips on how to best pack up your clothes. Vacuum packing out of season clothes can be a great way to not only store clothes, but also keep them clean until next year.
File all your papers
Papers, and old bills can certainly pile up over the winter months, because you only have as much space as your home allows. Take time to file all your papers in the spring. Bankers boxes or clear file bins can be great ways to store any important papers you want to keep once you have sifted through them.
Give your home a good thorough cleaning
Spring is a great time to give your home a good and complete cleaning. With all the dust piled up over the winter months, spring gives you the chance to work through every room and open some windows up to get fresh air flowing through your home again. Remember to also clean off or replace any air filters that you may have in your home. It will save you work in the fall once you need your furnace again and give you clean air to breathe.
Keep your emotions out of it
As you work through your home in order to declutter, make sure to set your emotions aside. When storing your goods in Winnipeg, it can be tempting to keep old school work, or old crafts that your kids made when they were young, or old clothes that you used to wear a lot in your home. While we aren’t suggesting you throw them out, but if they are taking up space, put them into storage. Make sure to set your emotions aside and work through your home in order to declutter it and get it ready for summer.
Organize your garage/shed
This is one area that can be easily forgotten. You are so busy working through your house that you forget about your garage or shed, and can end up with your snow blower taking up space in your garage all summer. Make sure to take time to work through and separate winter items and summer items. For instance, will you need your snow blower or skis or toboggans in the summer? Chances are that you won’t. When decluttering by storing your goods in Winnipeg, make to work through your garage, and put items in storage that you won’t need until next winter. It will open your garage up, and can give you a place to store your summer things.
While spring cleaning isn’t fun, it can certainly set you up for summer by giving you more space to work, and a cleaner home. Use this spring as an opportunity to declutter your home, by storing your goods in Winnipeg. Having access to storage can give you flexibility by giving you more room to work around your home, can allow you to store items that you don’t currently need but will need again next year.
