Every new year begins with such promise and so many opportunities to try new things, change bad habits or form good ones, and improve our lives. But it can be difficult to get started when you’re faced with a lot of clutter in your way or a lack of space in which to stretch and grow. That’s where self storage in Lawton comes in handy, helping you to declutter your life, find new opportunities, and stick with those New Year’s resolutions!

Recover from the Holidays. The holidays are a time of family, friends, togetherness, and fun, but let’s face it, the holidays can also be exhausting. Recovering from them doesn’t happen overnight. If you’ve still got holiday decorations that need to be put away such as Christmas lights, those huge inflatable lawn decorations, or even the tree itself, you can find room for them in Lawton self storage. You can keep them safe until next year without cluttering up your attic or garage. You’ll find you have even more space for all those new presents you got this year!

Get in Better Shape. One of the most popular New Year’s resolutions is to lose weight, get in better shape, start that new diet, or hit the gym. Of course, one of the reasons that’s a perennial New Year’s favorite is that it can be a tough resolution to stick to. After all, there’s a reason you stopped going to the gym in the first place, right? It’s hard to find time to drive over and work out in the midst of everything else you have to do. Plus, those monthly gym dues aren’t cheap. Maybe it’s time to try a home gym, instead! Don’t think you have the space for some weights and an exercise bike around the house? Lawton self storage can help you clear out that spare room so you can set up a home gym in no time!

Unplug the Whole Family this Summer. Maybe this is finally the year that you drastically reduce the amount of time you and your family spend in front of screens. Take those flat-screen TVs, tablets, and gaming systems and put them all into self storage so that you and the family can focus on spending some quality time together. Visit the Grand Canyon, Niagara Falls, Sequoia National Park, or any of this country’s other scenic attractions. Go camping, fishing, hiking, canoeing, you name it! Just be sure that you’re putting your electronics into climate-controlled self storage in Lawton, because the kind of extreme temperature shifts that we experience here in Oklahoma can ruin those flat screens and tablets in a hurry.

Complete that Home Repair or Remodel Project. Do your New Year’s resolutions include finally getting that home repair or remodel off the ground? One of the problems with fixing up the place is not knowing what to do with everything while you’re doing the work. You don’t want to get paint or dust all over your couch, after all, and if you’re planning on buying a new bedroom set, what do you do with the old one in the meantime? Self storage in Lawton can help with all of that; just remember to invest in climate-controlled self storage if you’re storing furniture that can be damaged by changes in humidity.

Make that Move to a New Home. Are you moving to a new home this year? Whether you’re downsizing or upsizing, there are a lot of ways that self storage in Lawton can help make your next move easier. Staging a home for sale takes a lot of work, and if you haven’t moved out yet, it can be tricky to find a place to put everything. Self storage to the rescue! Plus, if you’re moving into a smaller place or simply want to use your move as an opportunity to declutter your living space, self storage can help keep your items safe and accessible while also keeping them out of your hair.

De-Clutter the Home Office. It is a known fact that clutter decreases productivity. You may insist that there’s a system to all your home office clutter, but those piles of documents, end-of-year financials, old tax records, stress-relieving knick-knacks that you got as Christmas presents over the years, and everything else in your office is a drain on your productivity and an invitation to procrastinate. Sure, you could get to work, or you could finally rearrange that pile of paperwork in the inbox. If it’s time to cut down on the clutter and up your productivity, you can find the perfect home office storage you need with self storage in Lawton.

Get Started with that New Hobby. If you resolved to finally start a new hobby in the new year, you may find that hobbies take up space. Many popular hobbies include jewelry making, scrapbooking, or learning to play an instrument. All of those come with supplies and materials and require a space to work on them, and not everyone has enough space around the house to store all the ephemera that comes with a new hobby. Fortunately, climate-controlled self storage in Lawton is great for scrapbooking and crafting supplies, musical instruments, or whatever else your hobby entails!

Hold a Garage Sale. While we’re in the grip of cold weather in Oklahoma, it can be tough to think about spring, but before you know it, garage sale season will be upon us once again. If you’re decluttering your home during the cold months and need someplace to store all those unwanted items until it’s time for the big sale, look no further than self storage in Lawton! You can even share a storage space with a few family members, friends, or neighbors to get the most out of your garage sale prep!
