Welcome to Chattanooga, TN, the pride of southeast Tennessee. It’s a wonderful place to live and put down fresh roots. Moving into a new home is always a big job, but a few smart tips and storage units can make your move to the beautiful River City so much easier.
Keep Clutter at Bay
Self storage is perfect for organizing your relocation, so take a second look at things as you unpack. This is your chance to stop clutter before it makes itself at home in your new home. Try these decluttering strategies:
- Ask yourself if you really need it, and be honest.
- Throw away non-essential stuff like kitchen drawer junk.
- Donate gently used belongings to a local charity.
Keep Essentials Handy
While storage units help as you get settled in, some things should always go straight to the new place. Keep essentials for the house in clearly labeled boxes so that you can quickly find clothes, toiletries and bedding.
If you love to shop, make sure your comfortable shoes are unpacked for retail fun at Hamilton Place Mall. If you prefer a little urban fishing, leave your poles by the door so you’re ready to enjoy the piers along Tennessee Riverpark.
Keep Your Storage Unit
As you make progress moving in, free up closet space at the house by storing seasonal clothing in your unit. Open up kitchen cabinets by stashing extra dishes, pots, and pans in storage. Use your climate-controlled unit to park holiday decorations, hobby supplies, textbooks, and paper records.
These tips help keep your storage unit organized:
- Keep fresh air circulating by leaving space between stored items and unit walls.
- Always label boxes, and keep an inventory too.
- When you build stacks, put heaviest items on the bottom.
- Allow room for pathways so that you can move around and rearrange things.
Think about having a garage sale and cashing in on things that might turn into clutter. Designate several boxes in self storage for collecting potential items. When they’re full, have that weekend sale, and pocket a few extra dollars.
