3 Ideas for Saving Money on Storage Units

Save Money on Storage

Start Saving Money on Storage

Looking around your home, have you ever entertained the thought, “I have just too many things and no place to put them?” I, and nearly everyone else I know, has thought the same thing at different times. Your items may range from Holiday Décor, Seasonal Clothing, or Seasonal things like camping gear or recreational hobby equipment. You may have furniture that you are also storing for “sometime in the future.”

The truth of the matter is… these items can include almost anything. We all struggle to find a place to store things that we don’t need all the time. Our homes may look cluttered with every nook and cranny full, or a storage unit is rented to store the excess. Both of these can drain you mentally and emotionally, as well as hitting you in the wallet.

Storage units can prove to be costly. If you want to cut down on the amount you are spending on storage units, you will need to eliminate items in your storage unit or clear out some additional storage areas within your home.  Our goal is to give you some tips that will help you both utilize the space in your home more effectively so that you can lower the cost of renting a storage unit, or eliminate the cost entirely.

Let’s Look at the Garage

Have you thought about all the space you have in your garage? My garage is often full of everything but my cars.  How about yours?  So many people aren’t even able to put their cars in their garage any longer because it is so full of unorganized “stuff” that their cars won’t fit!  With the help of Classy Closet’s Professional Designers you could be parking your cars in the garage AND possibly even eliminate paying for a storage unit, if you use your space more efficiently!

Doubling Your Space

Organize Closets and StorageSome other underutilized storage areas may be closets, basements, attics, and even crawl spaces. It is worth taking the time to go through these areas of your home and sort through things.  If you take the time to do it even once, it will save you tons of time and frustration later; not to mention all those items you end up repurchasing because you can’t find things when you need them!  Reorganizing all the things you currently have stuffed into those spaces by sorting, restacking and even eliminating unnecessary items can bring huge relief as well as creating more usable space that allows you to downsize or entirely get rid of the need for a commercial storage unit.

Shelving, bins and racks can also be used to create more space and organization. These spaces that are being so ineffectively used right now can be designed to double your usable space and make finding what you need, when you need it, easy. Classy Closets can turn these into functional areas that put a smile on your face. Some of these simple measures are worth the time and the initial cost when it allows you to have everything in your own home and not stored somewhere that makes it inconvenient to use.
