Has Marie Kondo changed your life? She’s altered the way many people operate thanks to her hit Netflix series and best-selling book The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up. Her organisational methods and practices champion the benefits of decluttering to allow us to live happier, stress-free lives.
While the visual impacts of decluttering are obvious, it’s also been found to increase productivity, improve your memory, reduce stress and have a beneficial effect on your physical and mental health.
A 2011 study conducted by neuroscience researchers found clearing clutter from the home and work environment resulted in a better ability to focus and process information, as well as increased productivity.
Living in Sydney, it’s easy to let clutter build up with house and rent prices some of the highest in Australia and apartments that seem to be getting smaller. While we’re huge fans of decluttering and living lighter, we understand that there are some things you just don’t want to have to throw out or donate for the sake of a bit of extra space.
So, we've come up with a better solution that allows you to declutter to your heart's content without having to sacrifice your hobbies, bulky Winter coats or that slow cooker you’re definitely going to use one day.
With SpacePAL, you're now able to store the things that you don't need around the house every day, and you'll only have to pay a small monthly fee per box.
And it’s not just the Sydneysiders who have caught the 'Tidying Up' bug that are benefiting from using SpacePAL when they declutter. Savvy storers are benefiting from the lifestyle that a decluttered apartment affords us by renting out their space when they’re travelling.
Take Emma, for example.
Emma and her family were headed off on a family holiday and rather than leave their apartment empty she decided to list it on Airbnb for some extra income.
Any experienced Airbnb user will know how important it is to leave a tidy and clutter free apartment for your guests. It not only makes their experience nicer, but it also keeps your valuables safe and gets those things out of your apartment you’re not willing to risk getting broken or damaged.
The best thing about SpacePAL is that we come right to your door to collect your storage, and will even redeliver it when you need it back. You don’t need to worry about getting to storage lockers when you’re busy planning your trip.
Here’s what Emma had to say:
“This was such an easy way for us to store extra items while we were away and had our house on Airbnb. SpacePAL picked up our boxes a couple of days before we left, and delivered them back the day after we got home.”
Whether you want to list your apartment for short-term rent like Emma, or just want to jump on the decluttering train and whip your apartment into shape. SpacePAL can help. Download our app now to get started!
