Make The Most Of Limited Space
If you’re headed off to college, you’re not going to have very much space in your dorm room. However, there are some ways you can maximize the room that is available to you. One of the simplest, yet most effective things you can do is to purchase bed risers and organizing bins. In most cases, there is nothing above your bed except for big, open, wasted space. Placing your bed up on risers can allow you to make use of some of that excess space. When you’re able to store more items under your bed, you open up area in the rest of your room for personalization or furniture.
You can also add various kinds of organizers to your closet in order to reduce the unused space. Using organizers and clothes racks to ensure that all of your clothing and shoes have their own spaces instead of being jumbled together will help you to be coordinated throughout the year.
Put Away Seasonal Items
The bulk of summer toys and tools tend to take up a lot of space. Bikes, pools, lawn mowers, gardening tools, yard games, and so many others are sure to steal away precious garage or shed storage. You probably have a whole new wardrobe ready to go for winter, and your kids are ready to show off their new attire to their classmates! It’s time to bust out the jackets and long sleeves, but those shorts and flip-flops from summer may be getting in the way. As the days start to cool off, you can box up your toys, tools, and clothes for hibernation over the winter. Keeping seasonal gear in a storage unit is a wonderful way to help declutter your living space.
Keep Sentimental Items Safe
For college students, your parents’ basement or garage is not always an option to keep your belongings safe while you’re away. Many times precious items have gone missing at school, and you don’t want your collectibles and memories to get lost. Placing them into storage will guarantee that everything is where you need it.
Did your little one paint you some hilarious pictures over the summer? You may want to keep them for the future, but don’t want them cluttering up your home. Or maybe you’ve got boxes of baby clothes you’re hoping your grandchildren will wear someday. Renting a storage unit is perfect to keep all your memories in one place to peruse in the future.
