Now, you may or may not have heard of ‘the hoarder next door’ a great, entertaining programme filled with the real life baggage of true hoarders. Some can’t let go of old trinkets, and others are obsessed with keeping books and old magazines – the people are real and the stories are often shocking.
So is there a little bit of a hoarder in you? Whether you find you’re stuck with magazine after magazine piled up under your desk, or you’re adamant on keeping every last receipt since 1992 – we all have things we just can’t seem to throw away.
As much as it may pain you, it might be time to sit down and have a true clean out. I don’t just mean moving those old bank statements from one drawer to another, I’m talking about truly going through all your documentation and finding it a new and clean home. Storage can come in handy for a variety of situations, if you find yourself in any of the situations below – it might be time to look into finding that leftover clutter a place to live. Or of course, it may be that it’s time to set up a bonfire in your garden – and turn your clutter to ashes.
The Home Office Hoarder
So, picture this – you’re stuck at your desk, with barely any room to put your laptop down, you have sticky note after sticky note piled high up on the walls and yesterday’s coffee has well and truly left its mark on last year’s business report. We have all been through it – your work load is far more important than decluttering. But – just imagine how much your productivity levels could rise if you had the room to actually use your computer mouse properly. Getting some new office storage could do wonders for both your productivity and your work ethic.
The Kid’s Playroom Hoarder
You love your children, you really do – but when it comes to making mess around the house – they are the worst culprits. It’s easy to find yourself trapped in the middle of teddy bears, toy cars and of course the repeat offender– Lego bricks. Let’s face it – you’re crying out for a new playroom shelving system. Imagine how fantastic it would be to come downstairs in the morning and see a clean and tidy room with nothing but the rug on the carpet – only then will you know how much a new storage system will help.
The Book Worm Hoarder
Books are your thing, they always have been and always will be. Picking up a book and forgetting about the outside world can do wonders for your mind and can be one of the top forms of relaxation. However, you’re forgetting about the moment where you shut your book, toss it onto that pile in the corner and realisation kicks in. You’re surrounded by books and there’s no floor space to even get in the door. By choosing a reliable storage system, it will enable you to free up that floor space and have one organisational hub full of your favourite books, your very own library – – we guarantee it will look fantastic to.
So, to recap if you’ve found yourself in one of the situations above, it might be time to give us a call. Our shelving is available in hundreds of basic sizes and offers the perfect domestic storage solution to many common problems. The novel, modular design means bookcases, cabinets and shelving can be constructed to fit into almost any space – under slanted ceilings, into tight alcoves and even overhead where floor space is at a premium.
