How to Handle Your Stuff During a Breakup

 In Uncategorized

Breakups are usually pretty tough for most people and trying to figure out what to do with your stuff if you live together can make the process even harder. There are ways to minimize the pain and work together to handle your belongings, even if it’s rough at first. Storage in Redwood City CA will play an important role for your possessions but there are also some other things to keep in mind when planning the next steps.


Keep the Breakup Out of It

If you try to discuss what to do with your home and belongings while talking about the breakup, emotions are sure to get in the way. Make sure to get some closure and set your emotions aside when it’s time to deal with planning. Emotions tend to take control and you may make decisions that you will later on regret.

Don’t Live Together

This might seem obvious but sometimes couples will continue to live together after a breakup because they own a home together, share rent, or just because it seems like the easiest thing at the time. Try to avoid this at all costs. Whether it means finding a new roommate, or selling a home to move somewhere smaller, there is always a better solution.

Leave the Bed

If you are planning on taking the bed with you, you may want to reconsider the idea. Taking the bed with you could just result in painful memories when you’re sleeping in it. Even if it’s a nice bed, we recommend giving it away or selling it. You can always get a new one and you may even find that the fresh start feels nice.

Get a Storage Unit

If you don’t already have a storage unit, All American Self Storage in Redwood City CA can provide you with a secure place for your belongings. This is a transition in your life and it may mean needing a place to put lots of your stuff until you find a permanent solution. Whatever the case, your belongings will be there when you’re ready.

Stay Positive

Lastly, stay positive! We know it can be hard and it might feel like the end of the world now but these feelings are only temporary. Move on with your life and take care of yourself. You may even find yourself happier in the long run.


All American Storage hopes you don’t have to go through a breakup but if you do, we hope these tips help you in some way. If you need a storage unit, don’t hesitate to give us a call.
