Your hobby is an important part of your life, and in an effort to start the new year off pursuing things that give you joy and alleviate stress, you’ve decided to partake in your hobby on a regular basis. There’s just one problem. Your hobby takes up too much room. Don’t sweat! These helpful tips will keep your hobby organized, leaving your home clutter-free and yourself, well—happy!
Crafts & Collectibles
Partake in hobbies that have numerous small pieces, such as scrap-booking, coin or stamp collecting, Lego building, sewing or robotics? Purchase some clear storage bins and other small, clear containers to keep each item organized and separated from the other. Be sure to label each bin accordingly so that you know which holds what, keeping a running list of the items you have on hand within bins so that you are not sorting through every one when you need something. You can keep your clear bins within your closet, garage or attic, or even within a local self storage unit near you.
Classic Cars, Boats or Racing?
Into classic cars, boating or racing? Consider renting a self storage unit in your area to help you maximize space at home (unless you have the garage space for those items… if so, more power to you!). Units offer 24/7 surveillance, keeping your prized possessions secure. You may even be able to rent several units next door to one another should you have multiple cars or boats to store.
Private Painting or Writing Studio
Set your storage unit up into a private art or writing gallery, giving you the time and space you need to be creative without interruption. Since most units are climate controlled, your pieces will not be damaged by the elements, giving you peace of mind. Plus, if you write or paint for a living, you may be able to use your storage unit as a tax deduction for the year. As always, speak with your tax professional for more information.
Unlimited Train Layouts
Love building model train layouts but can’t seem to find the space to build as intricate a layout as you would like? With various sizes designed to meet your specific needs, renting a self storage unit can provide you with the room to build as far, wide and tall as you like, creating a layout you and your kids will enjoy for years to come (without taking up much needed square footage at home).
Enjoy golfing? Kayaking? Baseball? Football? Soccer? Place your sports equipment into your storage unit, rotating through gear as the sports season changes over the course of the year.
“Make New Year’s goals. Dig within, and discover what you would like to have happen in your life this year. This helps you do your part. It is an affirmation that you’re interested in fully living life in the year to come.”
Wishing you a wonderful New Year, filled with the things you enjoy! Happy 2018!
