Keep those new years resolutions with Kiwi Self Storage

Every year many, people around the world embark on the tradition of setting New Year's resolutions, promising themselves a fresh start and a chance to make positive changes in their lives. From health and fitness goals to decluttering and re-organising, the list of resolutions is diverse. Many homes and businesses however, lack the space to fully realise their plans. One often overlooked but highly effective ally in achieving these goals is self-storage. This solution plays a crucial role in facilitating and sustaining the journey towards personal growth and self-improvement.

Don't be among the 80% of people who break their new year resolutions within the first six weeks of the year!

1. Decluttering and Organisation:

One of the most common New Year's resolutions is to declutter and get organized. Clutter can create mental chaos and hinder productivity, making it challenging to focus on personal or professional goals. Modern interior design pushes that sparse aesthetic, less is more! Self-storage provides an off-site solution for storing items that may not be needed on a day-to-day basis but are too valuable or sentimental to part with. By decluttering living spaces and creating a more organized environment, you can think more clearly, enhance productivity, and achieve your goals more efficiently. It's also a great way to store those unwanted Christmas gifts until next year!

2. Home Gym and Fitness Goals:

A little over-indulgence over the festive period? Going to cheap (or expensive) gyms and fitness classes often doesn't last beyond the end of January, as it's a hassle to get there after a long day at work. Why not exercise from the comfort of your own home at a time of day that suits you?

With health and fitness resolutions topping many lists, the need for a dedicated workout space is crucial. However, not everyone has the luxury of a spacious home with ample room for exercise equipment. You can either use self-storage to free up space in your home for the work out area or self-storage units can be used to store fitness equipment, weights, and gear when not in use. This not only maximizes living space but also fosters a dedicated environment for fitness, making it easier to adhere to exercise routines and achieve fitness goals.

3. Seasonal Storage for Rotating Wardrobes:

Many resolutions involve a commitment to personal style and self-care. A well-curated wardrobe is a significant aspect of this, but the challenge lies in managing seasonal clothing or clothing which is no longer in style. Self-storage offers a practical solution by providing a secure space for off-season clothing, shoes, and accessories. This rotational approach not only keeps closets organized but also makes it easier to maintain a curated wardrobe that aligns with personal style goals. Having less of a crush in your wardrobe also keeps your clothing looking sharp and crisp.

4. Career Advancement and Workspace Optimisation:

Advancing in one's career often involves acquiring new skills, pursuing additional education, or even launching a home-based business. However, a cluttered and disorganized workspace can hinder productivity. Self-storage becomes an extension of the home office, providing a secure space for archiving documents, storing office supplies, or managing inventory. This optimization allows you to focus on your professional goals without the distractions of a cluttered workspace. Home based businesses or contractors can use storage units for storage of inventory, tools or materials. Our storage facilities are conveniently located simplifying access to motorways or main roads making deliveries or calls on clients more efficient.

5. Downsizing and Simplifying:

For those embracing a minimalist lifestyle or contemplating a downsizing move, self-storage offers a transitional solution. It provides a temporary home for belongings that may not fit into a smaller living space, allowing individuals to ease into the process of simplifying their lives. This step-by-step approach reduces the stress associated with drastic lifestyle changes and supports a smoother transition to a more streamlined and intentional way of living. It gives you more time to come to terms with saying goodbye to those valued possessions and you can sort through your life at your leisure.

6. Hobbies and Passion Pursuits:

New Year's resolutions often involve pursuing hobbies or passions that may require space and specific equipment. Whether it's a budding artist needing room for art supplies or a musician with instruments to store, self-storage units provide a dedicated space for these pursuits. By having a designated area for creative endeavors, individuals are more likely to commit to their passions and see progress in their chosen fields. Our storage units are dry and secure meaning you do not need to worry about valuable or sensitive items.

7. Home Renovation;

There are many reasons you may need to renovate your home. Your family may be about to get bigger. Your home is showing its age and needs a revamp. You want a bigger home, but the cheapest option is to build out rather than buy in. Whatever the reason, self-storage means you can empty the areas of your home you are working on at present. On larger projects move everything out. Our larger units will accommodate a larger home, but we are happy to rent multiple units if that is what is required. We can also provide comprehensive insurance for your items while in storage and recommend safe, reliable moving companies to assist with the move.

8. Financial Goals and Budgeting:

Achieving financial resolutions often involves making strategic decisions about spending and saving. Self-storage can be a cost-effective solution for those looking to cut down on expenses by downsizing their living spaces. Additionally, it allows individuals to keep valuable items secure without the financial burden of upgrading to a larger home. This pragmatic approach to storage supports financial goals by offering a flexible and budget-friendly alternative.

9. Treat Yourself

Treat yourself. An easy way to stay motivated to achieve your New Year's resolution is to allow little treats for you and your family as the clutter gets cleared away. Enjoy a family movie night in your newly organized living room, or, when a big part of the project is completed, buy that new piece of furniture you've been coveting.


In the quest to achieve New Year's resolutions, the role of self-storage is a hidden gem. It provides a versatile and practical solution to various challenges that individuals face when striving for personal growth and self-improvement. From decluttering and organization to supporting fitness goals, self-storage unlocks the potential for success in the pursuit of resolutions. As a dynamic tool that adapts to the diverse needs of individuals, self-storage proves to be an invaluable solution on the journey towards a more fulfilling and accomplished life.
