It turns out that storage company Big Yellow Self-Storage has a blog that’s packed with tips about decluttering your home.
This strikes us as a great idea – if anyone’s going to know a thing or two about decluttering it will be an organisation that helps you store your stuff while moving, renovating, having an epic sort-out or moving on to the next phase of your life.

Big Yellow Blog: How To Make Space For Your Tools
A toolbox is a great solution for the all round handyman that only occasionally tries his hand at DIY. There’s a range of different sizes and they are portable which makes it easier to take all your tools with you as they always stay in one location.
