You’d think that being in the self-storage industry means we’re good at organizing and decluttering, but even SpareFoot needs a little help every now and again. If you’re anything like us, you have difficulty figuring out what to do with the random boxes, wires and keyboards on your desk while also trying to juggle a monkey beanie wearing a Santa Claus hat adorned with wrapping ribbons. (I’m looking at my desk neighbor as I write this.) Spring cleaning season might be over, but that doesn’t mean decluttering has to end. Here are five of our favorite home organization blogs, in no particular order.

Giving Your Garage New Life? Self-Storage Can Help

By Guest Contributor   October 10, 2012

[ by Amanda Hopkins, CORT Furniture ]

Ahhh, the garage. For those endowed with the ability to organize with grace and ease, the garage is a haven for storage and… er, parking your car. For some of us, however, the garage is a scary place. It’s where the miscellaneous odds and ends of our lives end up. Garden tools, mismatched furniture, lawn equipment and boxes of old toys all can be found in the average American’s garage. But did you realize your garage can be turned into its own living space? Neither did we. It turns out that it is possible to gain an extra room without having to undergo an expensive addition. So go on, dream big – guest bedroom, media room, decked-out band rehearsal space – there are all kinds of options.

By Matthew Stites   January 11, 2012

So your neighborhood association left you a passive-aggressive note demanding immediate removal of all your holiday decorations (how do they know you still have a tree in the living room?), so it’s time to make your quarterly venture into the attic. Grabbing a ladder from your newly decluttered garage, you begin to think about the noises that periodically seep through the ceiling. Is your attic haunted? Have the neighborhood cats moved in? Whoever is up there, they sure seem to be enjoying themselves. And if ghosts and cats can throw a slamming attic party amidst the chaotic debris of unused sports equipment, moth-eaten clothes, and broken suitcases, think of the fun you could have in a freshly clean and remodeled attic space!*

By Rachel Greenfield   December 19, 2011

Home staging is the practice of de-cluttering and decorating a home for sale to improve its perceived value for potential buyers. Staging is its own sub-industry where real estate meets interior decoration. If you’re selling or considering selling your property, home staging is a smart way to not only get your home off the market faster, but also sold for a higher price.

Self-Storage Helps You De-Clutter Garage, Win At Life

By Matthew Stites   November 14, 2011

Stumbling over abandoned sports equipment and mysterious boxes whose labels have faded with time, you freeze in the middle of your garage. You’ve forgotten what you were looking for, because your thoughts are 100% occupied with a sudden flash of inspiration— you need a Foosball table! And it will go… right where that huge stack of documents currently sits! Your imagination has plenty of room for tournaments, half-time breaks, and guy-time hangouts made possible by your new Foosball purchase, so why shouldn’t your garage? Using a self-storage unit to offset clutter will help pave the way for countless nights of Foosball frivolity.
