  1. Separate your belongings in three different piles.
    • We recommend separating your belongings into three different piles: items you need or make you happy, items that can be sold or donated, and items that need to be thrown away. With these three piles it will make the process of decluttering your home easy. For the items that make you happy, you will need to determine how urgent you will need them to be because you can either keep them at home or for those that aren’t frequently needed can be stored in a storage unit. As you are putting items aside for storage, document those items on a list because it will come in handy when looking for them in your storage unit.
