Sussex County, NJ Self-Storage Can Save Your Relationship, It’s True!
February 7, 2018
To have and to hold, in sickness and health, until clutter do you part. Ok, we may be exaggerating a little, but clutter and all the stuff we bring with us into a relationship can, in fact, have a major impact on your relationship. When you entered into marriage you did so because of your partner’s sense of humor, intelligence, and compassion. Her childhood doll collection? His dozens of concert T-shirts from the good ole days? Those you could do without.
According to a recent survey, 48% of couples who live together argue over clutter. The same survey also showed 7 % of couples engage in clutter spats every day, 33 % argue either weekly or monthly, and 52 % of the people surveyed said when clashing over clutter, both sides are accused of harboring too much stuff.
Of course, there is always couples therapy to help you hash it out, but may we suggest something a little simpler? Read on to find out how self-storage can save your relationship.
It helps you find common ground.
If you and your partner are just two halves of one whole that have so much in common this might really work out for you, in terms of storage and decluttering at least. Do you have the same taste in music? Movies? Books? Tiffany Lamps? Okay, maybe not the last one. But if you have connections in the others you might very well have doubled up on some of those items. And if so, then going through your stuff together to see what you want to keep and what you want to toss will save loads on space, and is also a great bonding idea. Then decide what you want in your home and what you can place in storage until needed.
You can purge your past, without completely purging.
A sure-fire way to start a ‘lovers spat’ is keeping that oversized hippopotamus that your ex won you at a fair that one time. Yeah, that’s probably gotta go, but not everything from your single days has to.
There are a lot of things that we keep around for sentimental reasons. Things that may not be so sentimental to our significant others. In fact, they may just see it as (gasp!) junk. But your self-storage unit never judges.
It gives you room to grow.
First comes love, then comes marriage, and then… well, you know the rest. A growing family means the amount of stuff you have in your house will grow, exponentially (believe us on this one). Sometimes our families grow faster than our living spaces can keep up. That is why self-storage is the perfect way to ease the clutter burden of a growing family. Store the glass coffee table to make room for the playpen and know that when the sleepless nights are over, it will be waiting for your morning cup once again.
We are sure there are numerous other reasons why self-storage could make your relationship more harmonious, but the underlying reason is less clutter = marital bliss. Relationships can be complicated enough, so why not let our Sparta, NJ storage take the strain and let us sort out your storage needs. Simply give us a call and we will help sort out your clutter (and therefore, apparently, your relationship!).
