Spring is just around the corner, so it’s time for spring cleaning. Decluttering can be stressful without a plan or place to put excess items. Being torn over the thought of keeping or giving away sentimental items can be challenging. Spring cleaning will be a breeze with a Tellus Self Storage unit and a plan.

  • Determine what you’ll keep, throw away, give away, sell, or store in storage.

  • Purchase and label containers or boxes to know what’s inside and their purpose.
  • Separate what you’re keeping and then separate what you’re selling, storing, donating, and giving away.
  • Put away your winter items, such as shovels, snow blowers, and heavy coats, in storage until next winter.
  • Swap out your closet of winter clothes for spring wear.

  • Use the Tellus Self Storage calculator to determine what size storage unit would be appropriate for the number of items you plan on storing.
