3 Reasons to Rent a Self Storage Unit over the Holidays

benefits of holiday storageThe holidays are all about tradition; joy, laughter, and spending quality time with those we hold closest to our hearts. However, the weeks in between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day also tend to be the most hectic time of the year for many of us. Between all the running around, buying gifts and trying to get them ready to go under the tree, it’s easy for our homes to start to get messy and cluttered. You might even find yourself buying more gifts than necessary or forgetting to pick up something for Grandma, because your gifts end up stacked in a disorganized heap in a spare bedroom!

Consider a Self Storage Unit This Holiday Season

Renting a self storage unit over the holiday season presents just the solution you need to keep your stress levels down and your home tidy. Here are three reasons to consider renting a self storage unit for the holidays:

1)     Create more space for guests. Family and friends will be visiting often, and sometimes, may even be staying at your home for a few days. Instead of suggesting your loved ones head to a nearby hotel, clear out your spare bedroom so guests have a space to settle in with their belongings comfortably. Or, store excess items from your living room, family room or kitchen so everyone has a place to gather together and enjoy each other’s company- and all your sparkling holiday decorations!

2)     Keep your home organized and clutter-free. You not only want your home to stay organized and tidy for any visitors, but also for yourself and your family! Placing items you won’t need throughout the holiday season into a storage unit will provide extra space for all those gifts, as well as room to set up a wrapping station to get them ready to go under the tree. Plus, a clutter-free home will help you stay on task, so you can remember what you’ve bought and what you still need to get for loved ones.

3)     Decrease the chances of snooping. Maybe you’ve got some snoopers in your house who just can’t seem to wait until Christmas morning to unwrap their gifts. It’s a fairly common problem especially if you’ve got sneaky little ones! Rent a self storage unit to store gifts! This will keep prying eyes off all those presents until Santa has officially visited your home – and keep the element of surprise high.

    I never thought about renting a storage unit for just the holidays! I am having lots of family over this year and have no space for them. But we have a room filled with old furniture and boxes so we can just pack that into a storage unit! It will be so convenient and everyone can be happy!

    This holiday season, we have lots of family coming into town. There will be lots of people staying at our home, and I’m a little stressed about it. We use one of our spare bedrooms as storage, but we are going to need. I love your suggestion of using a mini storage unit! We would only need it for a month, but it would be the perfect solution. We would have somewhere to put all of our extra clutter.
