"Decluttering is good for us, we are told. Too much stuff can weigh us down mentally and physically, while a good clear-out sweeps the decks clean and allows fresh energy to flow in. However, it’s hard to let go of those precious stores of memories and meaningfulness in our possessions.
There’s no explaining why so many of us cling to things we don’t really want, or may never use, or can’t remember how they came to be there in the first place. Yet, according to organising expert Jennifer Ford Berry, author of Organise Now!, this issue is best approached with a firm hand and an iron will because, she says, tackling clutter can help one move forward with life."

Making Space for those in Need
The benefit of having a little extra living and storage space in Hong Kong can be enormous. But our unique Valet Storage by the box approach to storage doesn't just benefit our customers.
This month Go N Live – Valet Storage by the Box, has teamed up with Crossroads Foundation, a local NGO Charity that has had a major beneficial impact on the lives of local Hong Kong and international people in need.
Crossroads Foundation accepts goods donated from the good people of Hong Kong and redistributes those goods to people in need in Hong Kong and internationally.
There is no shortage of people wanting to support Crossroads through the donation of goods – the biggest issue has been the logistics and costs associated with getting these individual donations to the Crossroads Facilities in Tuen Mun.
To assist with this burden, from this month Go N Live will help our customers donate their spare items to Crossroads by providing the logistics around getting their donations to the Crossroads facilities, allowing the Crossroads team to concentrate on what they do best – helping those in need.

Here is a challenge for you.
Open Google and use the following search phrase
"student storage UK"
You get a lot of relevant search results.
Now try using the following search term
"student storage HK"
See any difference? Yep - you do get a lot of storage companies popping up that are Hong Kong based. So I guess that is relevant. But is there anything that really addresses student storage needs?
We thought we might try and change that. So we have introduced valet student storage packages. They are no frills, budget conscience, short term valet student storage packages.
STUDENT STORAGE - Only for Students.
Below is a show case of the packages that we have introduced.
We would love to get feedback on what people think. Please leave us a comment and your thoughts on what students want and need in the world of storage.
Given that Kitty Cat videos are most popular content on the web - we thought that this week we would feed that craze
Next month we will look for some more light entertainment to help people enjoy our blog and maybe de-stress a little.
