As much as we all love the holiday season, it’s no secret that for many, December brings nothing but stress and frustration. By using self-storage, you can cut out a large portion of space-related stress and instead try to surmount the monumental task of explaining Santa’s real identity.
Here are five ways self-storage can help make the holidays easier:
- Use a self-storage unit to hide presents: Some people just happen to be incredibly good at finding things you don’t want them to find. Keep presents for loved ones in a storage unit to bypass nosy kids and overeager boyfriends or girlfriends. You won’t have to constantly worry about the integrity of the hiding place, and can experience genuine satisfaction when they open their presents for the first time.
- Make space for relatives: Who knew that your nephew would be bringing his new girlfriend and their two dogs? Plan for unexpected guests and overnight stays by clearing as much space as possible before the holiday festivities begin. You can probably stand to put a desk or two in storage for a month so that Uncle Joe will be more comfortable.
- Store holiday decorations: When there’s no more room in the garage for the giant 5-foot snowman, consider taking him and his friends to a new home. A storage unit will happily house all of the holiday memorabilia you have, and you’ll finally have room in your garage to actually use it as a place to park your car!
- Keep the in-laws happy: Obsessed with your motorcycle, but worried what the in-laws will say? Tuck it away into self-storage, where it can be free from judgmental and disapproving eyes. Be sure to opt for a climate-controlled unit, and take precautions to prevent the tires from freezing and cracking by placing your bike on wooden slats above the concrete floor.
- Use self-storage to start fresh in the New Year: Make it easier to visualize your goals for the New Year by decluttering and reorganizing. Whatever your resolutions may be, having a clean, efficient and inspired environment can make all the difference in achieving your goals. Don’t be afraid—all of your stuff will still be there when you want it again. That’s the beauty of self-storage.
