What To Do With Things That Won’t Fit In Your House*


Let’s face it; not everything we have in our home really fits! Some things we keep in our home just because we like them being there and don’t want them moved and we hold sentimental value to a lot of things but in reality they just get in our way and clutter our homes- so what can we do about it? Well, if you carry on reading you’re going to find out what you can do with that extra stuff that’s in your house.

Get Storage Boxes

Some things we just can’t find it within ourselves to throw away. Whether it’s an old heirloom passed down through generations, or something your parents got you as a kid, we just can’t bring it upon ourselves to get rid of them! This is why you should really consider getting some storage boxes. These plastic boxes are cheap to buy and are very hard wearing- and the best bit about them is that they have a huge storage space inside them which you can take advantage of! They’re also very sturdy meaning that whatever you put inside them is going to be protected. Most plastic storage boxes are stackable too, meaning that you can put them on top of each other without worrying about any of them falling off!

Storage Facilities

Sometimes the stuff that we want to store is simply too large to keep at home. A garage is the perfect place for it but it could be getting damaged inside there so you need a viable alternative. This is where storage facilities come into play. They are essentially massive lockers for you to put stuff into, all you have to do is pay the rent on them and you’re set to go! This is an excellent option for things that are large and expensive because the storage spaces are huge, so for something that you want to keep but don’t have the room for it’s definitely an option you should look at.

Donating To Charity

This is a great way to get rid of some of the stuff you don’t need anymore and for an honourable cause. Charities all across the country ask for people’s old and unused items so that they can either sell them to make money for their cause or to actually give them away to people who need it most. Charities like oxfam regularly accept donations, so if you’ve got some items that you know not what to do with donate them to a good cause.

All of these things are going to save you room in your house your lost items are going to have somewhere to finally stay, whether it be small, old items that hide away in storage boxes for a few years until you get them out again, or for the big expensive ones that you just don’t have the room for! Decorating your house is also part of owning one, not just keeping it clean, so if you’re stuck for some ideas then read this!
