It’s the perfect opportunity for people to carry out what we like to call an ‘audit’ of essentials – and look at what they really need as opposed to what they really want.
Edinburgh (PRWEB UK) 9 April 2013
There never seems to be enough days in the year to keep on top of the ever-increasing list of cleaning duties, but thankfully, there’s a solution – courtesy of National Declutter Week.
From Saturday 6 April to Sunday 14 April 2013, hoarders actually have a little more than a week – two weekends in fact – to clear out any unwanted items. However, for those not quite ready to part with their items, Flexistore is offering customers the option to put their belongings in self storage
Tom Ash from Flexistore expressed his excitement for National Declutter Week: “The timing of this initiative couldn’t be better – this literally puts the ‘Spring’ into Spring cleaning! It’s the perfect opportunity for people to carry out what we like to call an ‘audit’ of essentials – and look at what they really need as opposed to what they really want.”
First launched back in 2010, National Declutter Week has become so popular that it has been celebrated consecutively – with 2013 marking the third anniversary of this yearly event. Whether the clutter is in the home or workplace, the aim of the campaign is to encourage the nation to throw away any unnecessary clutter.
“Just last year a study found that the UK’s homes are filled with junk estimated to be worth £1,045,” explained Ash. “We each hoard approximately 28 items, with belongings such as laptops, handbags and old mobile phones the most common possessions to be stored away.
“And with over three million of us never actually disposing of these items, it’s taking up crucial space in the home, the office as well as the mind. Yet we understand how hard it is to fully let go of something with personal value, which is why a self storage solution offers the best of both worlds – you can still retain your belongings, but in an external location that is safe and secure.”
For those unsure of how much storage they require, Flexistore offers a vault estimator that calculates how much storage is needed depending on the size and number of the items. With locations throughout the UK including storage in London, customers can choose from a number of services – such as Flexistore self storage in Cardiff with packing supplies delivered free of charge.
