Just as people were making their New Years Resolutions, Netflix kicked off 2019 with the release of the new Netflix show, Tidying Up with Marie Kondo. The show’s popularity is largely centered around its relatability to diverse audiences. Most people can benefit from being a bit more organized and declutter their space.
Who is Marie Kondo?
Marie Kondo is a well-known author and Japanese organizing consultant. Her theory for cleaning house, known as the KonMari method, focuses on the process of decluttering by gathering all items together, one category at a time, and then going through each item individually to determine those things that bring joy to the owner. Whether clothes or books, the idea is to go through every single item and determine its value to the owner.
How can a storage unit help in bringing joy?
While many people have found freedom and stress-relief in following the KonMari method, it is not a one-size-fits-all option as there are many approaches to cleaning house. Whatever the methods or reasons for wanting to declutter, renting a storage unit can provide a fast and easy solution for removing items from your space in the near term so that you can focus on what is most important. You may want to store those items that you have decided don’t bring joy until you can figure out what to do with the clutter. On the flip side, it may also be a smart idea to get a storage unit for preserving those items that do bring joy yet it may not be the right time for them to be in your current space.
A storage unit also provides opportunities for you to use the space to explore things that make you joyful. Make a second library, build your own gym, or stretch your creative muscles. Organize your crafts and hobbies. All of the contents will be safe from the elements in a climate-controlled environment.
