Often, their first step in the decluttering their apartments is to come to Sofia Storage with special items like keepsakes, memorabilia and collections they want to store in a safe, clean room or locker. They take this initial step to assure that they or their spouse do not “inadvertently” throw away those things they value. It makes the rest of the process much less stressful.
Once they have stored the items of high personal value, they are then able to segregate and sell, donate and/or throw away excess items of lower personal values. Generations of New York families have reported that this decluttering method has worked for them.
