Putting items in storage can feel like a quick solution for getting rid of clutter in your Long Island home, but sometimes it’s better to eliminate items before moving them somewhere out of sight. Before you put those items in storage, ask yourself a few questions to see if you should keep them or toss them.

Is it something you need?

Define what “need” means to you before your start eliminating clutter from your home so you can purge items instead of store them. Be honest about your real needs.

Is it an item you like?

Maybe you’re holding on to something or several things because they were gifts or because you’ve been using them at holidays every year. Your tastes evolve and there’s no reason to keep items you don’t like just because they’re things you’ve had for years.

Is it broken?

Keeping broken items with the idea that you’ll fix them someday might be overly optimistic, especially if you’ve already replaced them with something that works. Storing broken items in storage takes up unnecessary space.
