They say that less is more and if we could just deal with all the clutter we accumulate then maybe it would be true. Whether you hoard books, paperwork or just generally have a house full of clutter then maybe now is the time to let it go, whether you use self storage units to hoard it or just tip it out, and here are 10 top reasons why you should.

The Top Ten

1 Mess creates stress

Being constantly surrounded by clutter and unable to find what you want when you need it can make it hard to relax and increases stress levels. If you can’t face sorting out all the clutter at once then it is worth looking for cheap storage units and putting some items into storage whilst you tackle the rest of the clutter. - annap
