The holidays are just around the corner, and it means that there will be a lot of shopping and gift-giving soon. It can also mean that there will be less space in your home and in your office to accommodate these presents.
But do not fret. If you are thinking how you can make an additional room for your holiday gifts and buys, here are some ways through which you can make it happen:
1. De-clutter your space
You might not notice it, but your home and office space are housing a number of items that you are not using and probably do not need. If you are serious about making additional space, it would be best to conduct a general cleaning and throw away belongings that are broken or you don’t need anymore. Once you are done with cleaning, you can instantly see your space roomier and more spacious.
2. Invest in personal storage
If you cannot afford to dispose a single item from your space due to sentimental values, one option to make more space is to get one. There are storage companies that are offering personal storage space for clients who need a temporary housing for their belongings. You can either store your old stuff in this space or put the new and incoming item on your personal storage space.
3. Schedule a garage sale
A lot of people today are looking for pre-loved items that they can buy to save some gifting money. If you have a lot of items that you feel will benefit others, schedule a garage sale and line up belongings that you want to sell. But it would be best if you can check these items first to see if they are viable for selling and also for you to put a fair price on each item.
4. Give it for free
The Holiday season is meant for sharing and you can start with your belongings. You can free your closet and make room for new clothes by giving away apparels that do not fit you anymore. You can also make a donation to selected charities that are accepting second-hand clothes and items.
5. Be smart with your space layout
At times, a simple as moving and turning your furniture can do the trick. Check your home and office layout and see what changes you can apply to make more room in the space. Proper placement of furnishings will not only give you more room, but it can also make your space more convenient for use.
