Whether you live in a house or you rent an apartment, finding enough room to store your things can seem like an impossible task.
In fact, as is often the case, the more space you have, the more things you acquire to put in it. It’s a vicious cycle, but fortunately, you do have control over the situation.
Even if you’re not into minimalistic living, these five tips to help you maximize your space will certainly come in handy.
Minimalistic living isn’t for everyone, but you don’t have to be a minimalist in order to have a clutter-free living space.
It may seem overwhelming when you look at the big picture, but if you consider one room at a time and think about what’s most important to you, finding things to get rid of becomes much easier.
One of the easiest rooms to begin decluttering is the bedroom.
Most everyone has a closetful of clothes – many of which, they don’t wear. Starting there, get rid of (donate, throw away, etc.) anything you haven’t worn in over a year.
Once you begin the process, you’ll probably find it gets easier and easier to do away with things you don’t need or really don’t want.
Just because you clear out your space doesn’t mean you should start filling it up again with new things. The whole point of minimalistic living is to simplify your life.
Before you pick up that blue sweater calling your name from the discount rack, take a minute to consider why you feel the need to buy it.
Are you buying it because you need warm clothing for winter or is the 25-percent-off tag too irresistible to pass up? If you truly need it, go ahead and buy it. If you can do without it, leave it at the store.
When you do need to buy something, make it a point to buy better-quality items rather than cheaply made ones so they last longer.
This goes for clothing, shoes, linens, and furniture. You’ll spend more in the beginning, but you’ll save time and money in the long run.
If minimalistic living isn’t your ultimate goal, learning to be grateful for what you already have brings about contentment, which is what living with less is all about.
When you learn to appreciate what you have, you’ll realize you lose your desire to acquire more.
Everyone owns items he or she simply can’t bear to part with.
Whether it’s a teacup collection passed down to you from your dear departed grandmother or a set of antique lamps you love but don’t have a spot for, getting rid of sentimental or otherwise important things isn’t always an option.
When this is the case, renting a storage unit nearby is the answer.
