Decluttering Your Home Marie Kondo Style!

Tidy Desk

There is always a need for more space. Whether you live in a mansion or a single room, we always feel as though we need more space. A study by the Royal Institute of British Architects found that the average UK home is lacking space the equivalent of a single bedroom, yet the majority of us could easily fill one. 

Even in the workplace we could all do with a lot more space. Searching for lost documents equates to businesses losing around $2.5 million in lack of productivity, according to data by the International Data Corporation. Also, for students an interesting Harvard University study proved that students who leaves in a clutter-free workspace were able to work steadily for 7.5 minutes longer than students attempting the task in a cluttered workspace. 

Messy desk reducing productivity!

The first step to decluttering is making sure there is space for everything. Once places such as under the bed and on top of the wardrobe are full, what do we do?

Self Storage can help you store items that you don’t need on a daily basis but don’t want to throw away. This could include Christmas decorations or summer and winter clothes. 

Here at Cinch Storage we have rooms suitable for any storage need. From rooms the size of a telephone box all the way to rooms which can fit the contents of a 3-4 bedroom house. 
Marie Kondo created the ‘KonMari’ approach which is a method of decluttering and organising your home by getting rid of items which don’t bring joy to your life. She was listed as one of the Time’s “100 most influential people” in 2015 and was nominated for an Emmy Award in 2019. You can watch her fascinating journey on Netflix where you can watch her in action across America transforming people’s homes.  Her theory is, if that an item doesn’t spark joy then there’s no need to keep it at home and the obvious alternative solution is to put it into self storage! She goes about by gathering together all one’s belongings, one category at a time, and then keeping only those things that spark joy and is in fact inspired by the Shinto religion.
