No one enjoys throwing things away. Whether you’re holding onto cherished baby clothes or a family heirloom, parting with these things can be difficult. Keeping such items however massively affects your home life. Here are storage company Store & Secure’s 6 signs that your home needs a domestic de-clutter.

Always on the hunt

If you’re no stranger to hour-long searches for household items, it’s likely you need a ‘clear out’. Whether you need to throw away unneeded items or store them in self storage in Bournemouth or Basingstoke, this is the clearest sign that you need to de-clutter.chaos-227971_1920

Apologising to visitors

If you often find yourself apologising for the state of your home, it’s likely that things have gotten too messy. Give unwanted items to charity whilst storing those you do wish to keep in Store & Secure’s container storage in Basingstoke and Bournemouth.

The sky is falling!

Storing items in cupboards is the perfect “out of sight, out of mind” approach. However, this often leaves cupboards overfilled and causes items to fall out when the doors open. Prevent this by storing excess items using Store & Secure’s packaging materials in Basingstoke and Bournemouth.

You’re stressed

Stress is often induced by a cluttered home. Regain peace of mind with a domestic de-clutter and by storing excess items in container storage in Basingstoke and Bournemouth.

Tripping over

Tripping over things is a sure sign you need a sort out. Whilst very common in homes with children’s toys, this is a great excuse to give toys to charity.

Misuse of furniture

Dumping clothes on armchairs or using tables as bookshelves is a certain sign you need a ‘clear out’. Store unnecessary books in boxes or use self storage in Basingstoke and Bournemouth to store out-of-season clothing.
