Support Charities By Clearing Your Storage Unit

Admin | June 29, 2020 @ 12:00 AM

Storage units work very well for decluttering your home and sorting out all the extra items in your life. The trick is getting the right size unit, a unit that's conveniently located near you, and moving items to your unit in a way that's efficient for your lifestyle.

Get all those things right and your home will stay neater and you'll benefit a charity at the same time. It's a win-win for everyone!

Drop off Extras Throughout the Year

With a self-storage unit you can utilize whenever you like, you can conveniently dump off the extra items you don't want lying around your house into the unit on a regular basis. This makes decluttering your home easier and can make it more efficient as well.

The trick to this technique is choosing a storage location that's conveniently located, so you don't mind stopping in regularly. 

Sort Your Stored Items

If you're dropping off excess items to your self-storage frequently you'll slowly build up a stockpile of stuff that you have to do something with. When you get enough items in your self-storage for charity you must spend time sorting it out into items for sale, items you want to keep, and items to donate to charity.

Organize the stuff into shelves or bins and you can conveniently move it where it needs to go from there. 

Make a Few Large Donations Per Year

Instead of visiting your local charity donation center monthly and driving out of your way, you can make a few visits throughout the year to donate the storage unit contents. A few large donations are much more efficient than many small donations are, especially if you have storage nearby to your home.

Just make sure you have a large enough storage space to hold all the items until you're ready to make a donation. Central Coast Storage offers a wide range of storage unit sizes to choose from, making it easy to get the right amount of space for your extra items.
