Spring Cleaning

July 13th, 2021


Marie Kondo invented the KonMari method of organization, which asks you to look at your belongings and ask yourself, “Does this spark joy?” If something makes you unhappy, it’s time to find a new place for it.

Now that Spring is here, it’s the perfect time to do some spring cleaning the Marie Kondo way. Are you ready to clean out and declutter your home?

Step One in Spring Cleaning

To get started on your spring cleaning, just take an afternoon to walk through your home. Find any extra clothes, boxes of knick-knacks, files, toys, books, music, and movies laying around.

Go through your garage and take a serious look at your lawn equipment, extra furniture, and holiday décor.

As you pull out each item, ask yourself, “Does this spark joy?”If looking at that item makes you frustrated or annoyed, or doesn’t spark any emotion at all, it’s time to get rid of it. You may even find something brings you joy, but it’s taking up space in your home and causing you grief.

Marie Kondo would tell you to donate what you can, move things you need to keep elsewhere, and trash the rest.

Spring Cleaning Your Way Into Storage

Now, once you have collected some items that need a new home, it’s time to find a place to put them. That’s where Modern Storage® steps in!

The best way to find joy in your home again is to move out the clutter and get it locked away in a secure storage unit.

Depending on how much you need to declutter, we can recommend a variety of storage unit sizes to suit you:

  • 5x5—store small boxes of files, boxes, clothes, décor, tec.
  • 5x10—store small furniture and larger décor in addition to some boxes
  • 10x10—store lawn equipment and larger furniture in addition to boxes
  • 10x15—store a mixture of everything cluttering your house, up to two or three bedrooms worth of joyless stuff
For help figuring out what size storage unit you need, you can always use our storage calculator tool. Add in your items and let the calculator tell you which size will fit them.

This should spark some joy – we also offer a ton of services to help make spring cleaning a little easier.

Free Moving Truck

Here at Modern Storage®, we also offer a FREE move-in truck for customers renting anything larger than a 5x5 storage unit.

This 14-foot box truck also comes with a ramp, so you can load and unload your excess belongings with ease.

Moving Supplies

Run out of moving supplies? We also sell boxes, tape, unit locks, and mattress covers to help keep all your items safe and organized.

Added Security Features

Speaking of safety, you should know that all our storage locations are equipped with several security features.

Each storage facility is fenced and gated with controlled-access security gates. Every customer has a unique access code so we can monitor everyone entering and exiting the facility.

What’s more, we have 24-hour surveillance cameras surrounding the property.

24-Hour Access

If you know you’re going to be coming in and out of your storage unit at odd hours to get everything organized, we recommend you add 24-hour access to your account.

For just $10 a month, you can have early morning and late-night access to your storage unit beyond our 6:00 am to 10:00 pm access hours.

Your unit will also be on a month-to-month lease, so you can use the storage unit for just one month or for years depending on your needs.

Just like Marie Kondo, the storage experts here at Modern Storage® want you to feel happy, healthy, and organized.
