5 Things You Should Toss Out This Spring

Old Electronics

Do you own a bunch of electronics that you don’t use anymore? Maybe you have loads of cords and cables in a drawer that go to devices that you don’t even own. Now’s the time to clear out the cords and old electronics to make room for the stuff that you really need.

Outdated Clothes

Sometimes people hold on to clothes that may come back in style one day. But that’s no guarantee. Donate those old clothes to charity and treat yourself to more space and perhaps a newer wardrobe.

Duplicate Kitchen Items

Have more than one set of dishware? Downsize to one. Do you have two waffle irons or three sets of glassware? If you can do with just one, you’ll save room in your kitchen.

Stored Clutter

If you tend to store things in your garage, closet, attic, basement, or storage unit, it’s time to go through everything and to consider getting rid of the things that you don’t need. Otherwise, the clutter will continue to pile up and take over your home and storage areas.

Children’s Toys

Toys can easily take over your child’s room or even your entire home if you’re not careful. If you’ve run out of space for all the toys, donate some to a good cause and reclaim your house at the same time.

Spring Clean With Self Storage

Spring cleaning may seem like a chore, but it’ll open the door to more space in your home when you’re done. You can even spring clean your storage units and make the space more accessible and easier to navigate. Whether you sell, donate, or toss out your clutter, you’ll feel better with fewer things taking up space in your home. Start spring cleaning now to get a jump on it and have more time to enjoy other things this spring in Saddle Brook, NJ.
