6 Items Frequently Kept At a Storage Center

Clutter is a major problem in American households.  Rather than getting rid of your treasured possessions, consider renting out a self-storage space.  A storage facility can give you a convenient home-away-from-home for your extra things. 

But what exactly should you store at a storage center?

Check out these 6 items that are frequently kept at storage centers:

  1. Holiday Decorations: No need to keep the Christmas box in the hall closet all year.  You can store the decorations and just pull them out of self-storage once a year.
  2. Children’s Old Art Projects: Old crayon drawings, your child’s first homework, school awards… you probably want to hold on to every scrap of paper they bring home.  They will no doubt appreciate having a few treasured items when then are older.
  3. Furniture: If you have recently moved, then you may find that your old furniture doesn’t quite fit in your new space.  A storage facility can store the items until you need them, instead of you having to sell the furniture and then buy it again when you need it.
  4. Heirlooms: Your grandmother’s old grandfather clock might not fit in your new home or with your current interior design, but there is no reason to get rid of such a treasured item.  Store the item unit you have the space to display it in your home.
  5. Collections: Maybe your wife isn’t such a big fan of your comic collection or your husband doesn’t understand the fascination with porcelain dolls.  You can use mini storage to store these items until you decide to sell them off or convince your partner that they really do have value.
  6. Luggage: Many families have multiple pieces of luggage for their yearly vacations.  If the luggage isn’t being used more than once or twice a year, why have it stuffed in the bottom of your already full closet.  You can even store out-of-season clothes in the luggage before you take them to your self-storage unit.

Storage Concerns? What to Consider When Choosing a Storage Facility

We all have items—large things like TVs or small things like letters—that we want to hold on to but don’t have the space to store them.  You might have just moved into a smaller home or maybe added a new baby to your family; either way, you’re probably struggling to find room. 

You have two options: clutter up your house with all the extra stuff or rent a self-storage space

A storage facility can give you a convenient place to store your holiday decorations, old high school trophies, or some extra furniture that wouldn’t fit into your current place. 

Before you choose a storage facility, however, check out this list of consideration when choosing a storage center.

  • How much space do you need? To save yourself money, be sure to only rent out the space you need.  See if the storage units have shelves that can help you take advantage of more space.  If you have particularly large items to store, you should measure the unit before signing a lease.
  • Location: How often are you going to need to open your self-storage unit?  If you plan on stopping by every other week or more, you should choose a storage facility close to your home.  If the storage unit is more for long term storage that you wouldn’t need to access other than a few times a year, then you might be able to find a good deal by choosing a storage center farther out of town. 
  • Price: The smaller the unit, the cheaper the price generally, but you should be wary of run-down storage facilities.  Rodents and moisture can ruin what you have stored.  If you are storing sensitive items, you might want to consider climate controlled units.  It might be worth it to spend a little bit more a month on a good storage facility than risk having your items damaged.If you are looking for a storage unit in the New York City area, you should definitely check out Chelsea Mini Storage.  We are one of America’s largest self-storage facility, and we offer some of the lowest prices in Manhattan.  Check out our website for prices and reserve your mini storage today!

5 Tips to Organize Your Stuff

Keeping your things organized can be a real chore and one that seems never-ending.  Here are some tips that should help to keep both the large and the small neat and organized.

  1. When buying furniture, think drawers.  Furniture can come outfitted with extra nooks and crannies that provide you with room to keep your stuff organized.  For instance, both beds and sofas can come with built-in drawers, and loft beds are a great space saver. 
  2. Keep similar things together.  When you pack your stuff away, be careful to group things according to when you will be using them.  This cuts down on space and time spent searching for that other ski or garden rake—when everything is in the same place, there is no need to go hunting for the rest.
  3. Use a storage space.  Storage spaces can be a great solution when you are trying to organize your stuff.  A big problem that can be solved by renting a storage space is how to store seasonal equipment.  Gardening supplies or sports gear that are only used part of the year take up room for the rest of it. Using a storage space lets you stow what you do not need and make room for what you do.
  4. Use shelves.  Everywhere.  Add them in your closet, your pantry, to your walls in the living room—they can come in unique sizes and interesting designs to give your décor flair, and they increase your storage capacity.  Hooks are also an interesting option, and keeps things off of the ground.
  5. Fit your car into the garage.  Your garage is a great piece of space, and it should never become so cramped that your cars are banished outside.  What do you do?  There are many garage organizational systems that you can find incorporating shelves, hooks, bins, and drawers that will give you the space that you need to keep your items stored and your car under your roof.

If you are cramped for space and you are looking for a way to store your things in the New York City area, you should explore Chelsea Mini Storage, with affordable prices and the space to make you better organized.
