Renting a personal storage unit is one of the best ways to minimize clutter in your Capitola, CA home. The team at JD Mini Storage can help your decluttering mission go as smoothly as possible. With one of our many storage units, you can remove unnecessary items from your home and save them for later use. Here are some of our tips for storing some common items.

How to Declutter Your Personal Items

As you gear up to store some personal items, you’ll probably need to declutter them first. Many of us are too busy to keep a spotless home, and storage spaces are often the first to suffer from clutter. Luckily, JD Mini Storage has some tips for decluttering your space and deciding which items to keep and which to take to a self-storage unit. Keep items like clothing, often-used furniture, décor, essential documents, pots and pans, silverware and dishes, and items with sentimental value. Clearly, this isn’t an exhaustive list of what to keep around. Use your best judgment on which items you’ll use on a daily basis. Consider taking the following belongings to an indoor storage unit:

  • Extra items, like blankets, furniture, and décor
  • Unused toys
  • Seasonal items
  • Out-of-season clothes and sporting gear
  • Items your college student won’t need when they come home

Storing Holiday Decorations: Dos and Don’ts

You probably don’t want Christmas or Halloween decorations up all year, so take special care to keep them in a personal storage unit. At JD Mini Storage, we know many of these items are fragile, so we have plenty of tips for keeping your ornaments and garlands safe until next year. Use egg cartons to box up small ornaments and always use tissue paper or bubble wrap to cushion individual pieces of décor. Instead of throwing your lights into a bundle, wrap them around a tube to ensure they don’t come out a tangled mess.

Have Home Appliances that Need to be Stored?

Storing unused home appliances can be a hassle if you don’t have lots of extra space. Oftentimes, the best place for an unused dishwasher, fridge, or washing machine is a local storage unit. Before loading your home appliances up to be taken to our storage facility, be sure to follow these steps:

  • Drain any excess liquid
  • Thoroughly clean the inside and outside
  • Place cushions around fragile parts
  • Keep any doors ajar while being stored
  • Load them into the truck last so they can be unloaded first

Make Spring Cleaning a Breeze

Is it time for a little spring cleaning? Whether it’s springtime or not, there’s never a bad time to declutter. As you clean your home this year, be sure to box up anything you want to send to a self-storage unit. We recommend cleaning from the top down or left to right. This will help you make sure you don’t miss a spot! Get rid of any extra items in desk drawers or on shelves and box up what you want to keep in the long run.
