After you’ve decluttered, it’s time to box everything important up for storage. Now you just have to work out the right amount of cubic space to fit everything. Obviously, you don’t want to rent unnecessary space, but overpacking your room can damage valuables.

The video wisely advises a simple solution. Measure out the area of your local storage facilities and consider different options. The smallest area where you can safely store everything is the best way to go.

Don’t forget to think about accessibility as well. If you regularly need to access your belongings in your room, a little extra space is worth a thought. You don’t want to be dragging box after box out so you can get what you need.
