As your kids get older, you might realize that the amount of things in your home grows alongside with them. After a certain amount of time, you might be thinking about getting a storage unit to store those extraneous belongings. Here are a few small tips in using a storage unit.
Get rid of bulky items! That small table that doesn’t seem to fit in with the rest of your furniture? That treadmill that you use to hang your clothes on? If you’re not using them, they shouldn’t be in your home. Stow them away in your storage. Keep them there until you’re actually ready to use that treadmill, or if you plan on selling it!
Hide the gifts! If your kids are sneaky, which is probably a given, they might already know their gift’s hiding locations. Kids will never look in your storage unit! If you’re planning a surprise party, hide the favors in the storage unit so your kids won’t catch on. Also, although it’s May, it’s never too early to stow away gifts for Christmas too!
