Personal Storage Solution

Mission Organization

Despite all efforts to the contrary, our belongings accumulate in our homes and overwhelm us. Don’t call it junk — much of it we need to keep, such as tax records, holiday decorations, family heirlooms and sports equipment. All that stuff can be stressful, but imagine the peace of mind and the clean, organized home you’d have if you could truly manage these things more easily. ClutterFreeBox can help. It’s an off-site storage service designed to not only organize and store your belongings but also make it easy to retrieve them whenever you want, using the Web.

You pack your belongings in specially designed boxes from ClutterFreeBox, then document and tag the contents. After you FedEx the boxes to the company, you can keep track of what you’re storing and make plans to retrieve it using a simple Web interface (it’s a little like Netflix). You can arrange to have your holiday decorations shipped back home on December 1, for instance, or to have your surfboard meet you in Malibu for spring break.

The service was created by entrepreneur Dan Peck (left), who with his team in Charlotte, N.C., has managed a corporate high-security storage facility since 2001.He realized one day that the system large companies use could be adapted for individuals to organize their stuff. So, using the same team and storage facility, he created ClutterFreeBox. We heard about the service from Daily Grommet friend Joe Caruso (that’s him on the right), who says it’s “a new way of approaching an age-old problem: how to organize my stuff.”

ClutterFreeBox uses modern technology to put a new (inter)face on plain old storage facilities. The result is an easy way to keep track of your stuff, all from the comfort of your uncluttered desk.

    I'm happy that Daily Grommet has chosen to show you how ClutterFreeBox can help you organize your life! I have flight plans this afternoon but have left you in the capable hands of James who can answer any of your questions. We would love to help you get organized today!

    This is so clever! This would be perfect for when you put your house on the market getting ready to sell. You are not ready to be in full packing mode, but you need to declutter your space, remove personal items, etc. Send them off and once you're in your new home have them come back to you in manageable doses when you are ready for them!

    This sounds more economical and much more organized than a safety deposit box. (All my most valuable documents are permanently rounded due to the 4x4 space they live in and I don't remember anymore what is in there!)

    It's tax time...this would be a great way to securely store your tax documents. Have your box scheduled to come back to you in February - tuck your new tax documents in and send it back for another year.

    PS - by clicking on the 'Buy it Now' button above you will be taken to the ClutterFreeBox where you can sign up for a free account and get a feel for their site and the process with no obligation to use the service if it's not right for you.

    I can relate to this, as I, too, have gone through and wondered "Just how many Red Sox hats does one person truly need?" I'm always trying to simplify my life and the lives of my kids/husband. Brilliant idea.

    A quick clarification on the pricing. In the video, Kate mentions that it costs $5 per month. That is for a month to month plan. We list above that the price could be as low as $1 per month. If you have long term storage needs and won't be accessing your box for at least one or five years, you can sign up for the one year plan at $2.99 per month or a five year plan at $0.99 per month.
