In a few short weeks, millions of Americans will turn their attention to Times Square and other public gathering places to watch the dropping of the ball ushering in the New Year. Not only will 2020 be upon us, but many of us will make resolutions to make our lives better. Gyms will be packed as people take advantage of weights and spin classes. Others will choose to solidify relationships, or get out of debt. For those trying to get more control of the chaos at home, decluttering and getting rid of belongings may be on the agenda.

Why not add the convenience of self-storage units near your Lafayette home to your New Year’s resolutions? When you rent from 5A Rent-A-Space, you enjoy two worlds, having your belongings conveniently located, and a clutter-free home. Think of all the parties you can have when friends do not trip over your skis or craft supplies! We even offer the services of a free moving van to help you get your stuff removed and delivered to your new rental unit.

10 New Year Resolutions

Making a New Year’s resolution has been around for thousands of years. It is suggested that the ancient Babylonians are the first to make them. They made promises to their Gods, and if they kept them, they would expect favors for the coming year. Since that time, people have been making promises to themselves and others. Here are the top ten resolutions from 2019:
  1. Exercise more, lose weight, eat healthier
  2. Save more and spend less
  3. Learn a new skill or hobby
  4. Quit smoking
  5. Read more
  6. Find a new job
  7. Drink less alcohol
  8. Spend more time with family and friends
  9. Travel more
  10. Get organized
Why Renting a Storage Unit Should be No. 11

Most people will give up on their promises shortly at the beginning of the year. The reasons vary, but many times, we give up and then start all over the next year. If you want to get organized this year, what is stopping you? A storage unit is an excellent solution.

As you turn your attention to getting more organized, consider renting a self-storage unit to house those items you need, but are taking up space in your home. Consider how you can use it to clean, declutter, and organize your place:

  • As you clean out the garage, move seasonal sports equipment out without having to tuck it in an attic or another cranny.
  • Pull out your holiday decorations, sort through them, place them in clear totes, and stow them on shelves in your unit.
  • Sort through your clothes. Donate what you no longer need or want and store the rest until you need them.

Is the clutter around your house stopping you from having family and friends over for the holiday festivities? Do you struggle to get the Christmas tree up because too much stuff is sitting in your living room? The holidays are for making cherished moments with those you love.

3 Benefits of Renting a Storage Unit during the Holidays
You might think that renting a storage unit is unnecessary. After all, you do have a garage and a crawl space, right? However, you can benefit from the extra room throughout the year, not just during the holiday season. Consider these three benefits of storage rental:
  1. You can find a place for visiting family to sleep: Not all homes or apartments have guest rooms waiting on people to stop in and rest. Sometimes they are converted into offices, craft rooms, or gaming rooms. Most of the time, they are places to catch all the clutter from the rest of the house. When you clear out those items you don’t need immediately, you can set up a lovely area for your parents, in-laws, aunts, or cousins to sleep in while visiting.
  2. You can effectively store seasonal items: Closet space can be at a premium, no matter what time of year it is. When you have guests coming over for dinner, where do you hang their jackets and coats? In the front closet? Only if it is free of the water skis, baseball bats, and tennis rackets. Your rental unit can be the holding place you need to keep your favorite seasonal items, such as sports equipment, ready for your next adventure, and not cluttered in your closet.
  3. You can organize your decorations for each holiday easily: If you love decorating, then you will love having it all neatly tucked away in color-coded totes. Even if you do not go overboard on your organization, some shelves in your unit will allow for quick and easy access for each holiday, year-round. All you have to do is a rapid change out from Christmas to Valentine’s Day, and your home will keep looking festive.
