Life has a funny way of surprising you. Justin and I had just decided to stay in Texas for another 5 years. We love our friends there and the house was just getting to be the best it could be! But then we were offered an opportunity that would bring us closer to family. So, we worked our little fannies off to get the house complete. It’s just a house right? But I am telling you, it was sad to pack up the house when it has never looked that good the whole time we lived there.

But family is very important to us and we felt that it was time to be closer to them, while our children are young. We loved living away from family without kids… but life and priorities change when you have kids, can I get an AMEN…READ MORE HERE…

Looking for new and improved ways to declutter your home with ease? That’s pretty much why we exist but if you need some organizing tips on top of top-notch Toronto storage you will want to keep reading.

How to get rid of household clutter:

Donate to local charities

Tons of charities operate thrift stores that allow you to donate anything from old dishes and clothing to kids toys and appliances.

It might literally be one of the best organizing tips out there. Think about it, if it’s gone you don’t have to worry about organizing it anymore, do you?

Pass the items off to a friend

Your friends might have use for that garlic press you don’t use or that cookbook that you weren’t the biggest fan of. Just because you didn’t like it, doesn’t mean someone else won’t. The same goes for clothing that is in good condition. This is a good way to score some brownie points and declutter your home at the same time.

Consignment stores

If you have items that are worth some money but you simply don’t want them anymore, why pay to store them or look at the clutter when you can sell them? These stores often take jewelry and clothing that is in good condition. You can literally make hundreds of dollars just for making more space in your home.

Have a yard sale or garage sale

This is another fantastic way to declutter your home and save space in your Toronto storage. You don’t have to set up anything fancy, especially if it’s a garage sale. All you need is some tables.

Ebay and/or Craigslist

It only takes a few moments to list items on Ebay and Craigslist and you can find someone to buy just about anything on them.

Packing For Storage vs Moving

packing for moving vs storage

We often get asked how packing for storage is different than packing for moving house and the answer is there isn’t an enormous amount of difference between the two. There are, however, some key points you should know when it comes to packing for storage vs moving.

Three points for packing for storage vs moving:

ONE: This applies to both but it is important enough that we feel it bears repeating: Always pack efficiently and safely regardless of the reason you are moving things from one place to another. That means never overstuffing boxes or putting too many heavy things in the same box. The same is true for bags, you don’t want them to rip.

TWO: If you are packing for storage you might want to stay away from bags because you are storing them for some time whereas when moving you are only going to be leaving them in the bag for a short period. Plastic bags such as garbage bags tend to be more prone to mold and mildew which can lead to unpleasant smelling contents.

THREE: When loading up the truck you are going to use to transport your items to storage, whether you are doing it yourself or hiring someone like Valet Storage to help you, you should pay attention to what goes in the truck last. Remember, this will be what is at the front of your storage unit. This could be important if you think you will want to visit your unit and get certain items such as seasonal decorations.

Now that you have a handle on packing for storage vs moving, you are ready to choose the company you will be using. If you live in the Greater Toronto Area you can give Valet Storage a call at 1-888-670-6794. We would be happy to answer any and all of your questions right over the phone.
