Celebrate Old Stuff Day – The Ideal Time to Declutter

pile of organized old stuff

By now, every day of the year has been designated as a day to honor something. Old Stuff Day is March 2, which is a fun excuse to recall happy memories by browsing through old, sentimental belongings. While there’s no harm in holding on to certain items for sentimentality’s sake alone, old things can start taking over a home before too long. With that in mind, why not celebrate Old Stuff Day by not only reminiscing but by also clearing away things you really don’t need anymore? That often means throwing stuff away and/or selling it, but there’s another option to consider: Storing unneeded items with sentimental value in Storage Zone Self Storage in Mentor, OH and the surrounding area.
