Is renting a self storage unit the answer to de-clutter? Yes, but why? The answer is simple. These days, more people are living alone in smaller flats or homes without garages or attics. When they accumulate too much stuff in their home but they don’t want to get rid of their things permanently, storage can be the ideal solution to de-clutter by providing that extra space and flexibility just when they need it. It could also be creating some extra space for some home renovations or to make space for a new family member.
