Why Spring Cleaning and Self Storage Go Hand in Hand

Self storage solves a lot of space-related problems in your home. Whether you live in a house or an apartment in Kamloops, storage can help you keep your home organized and clutter free. Storage makes life a lot easier, especially when moving, renovating, or during a yearly spring cleaning push!

Spring Cleaning is an Opportunity to Reclaim Living Space in Your Home

That nagging feeling you may experience when you think about spring cleaning, might be tied to avoidance. You may avoid cleaning because you don’t know where to start, or feel it’s a lot of work for short-lived gains. You can, however, reframe the experience as an opportunity instead of “housework”, especially if you rent self storage.

When you have self storage, spring cleaning can result in long-lasting positive outcomes that far outweigh the short-term inconvenience and perceived drudgery.

Benefits Using Self Storage During Spring Cleaning

If you have a storage unit, during spring cleaning, you:

  • Can move things out of your home and decide what to do with them later.
  • Don’t have to sell or give away belongings to make room in your home. Move them into storage!
  • Can easily access your storage unit. Valleyview Mini Storage offers 7am – 7pm access, 7 days per week.

How to Use Self Storage During Spring Cleaning

The following are typical spring cleaning steps when you have self storage:

Make a list of items to sell, donate, give to friends or family or move to storage
Lists break down large jobs into smaller, more manageable sequential tasks. Instead of seeing the job as a mountain to be climbed, you can concentrate on each step up the mountain. Walk around your home an identify belongings to either sell, donate or give away. Add the item to your list.

Sell or give away items
If you don’t want to take the time, you can decide to move these belongings to storage and deal with them later. At least they won’t be cluttering up your home in the meantime. Remember to label these items if you decide to temporarily move them to self storage.


Label items you plan to sell or give away that you place in your self storage unit temporarily. Place them in the same general area within your space, so you can easily find them when the time comes.

Gather moving boxes and supplies
Valleyview Mini Storage sells boxes and packing supplies such as tape, packing paper and bubble wrap.

Label boxes
Always label boxes. We recommend labelling at least the top and one side of the box.

Move belongings to storage before you begin cleaning
Once boxes are labelled and packed, place any belongings you’ll need to access more frequently toward the front of your self storage unit (closest to the rollup door).

Start spring cleaning with ease!
