The holiday season is here! While visions of sugar plums may dance in your head, the holiday season brings various challenges along with it. Guests within your home, cash becoming tight and seasonal decor to sort through can be stressful, and with very little time to prep, plan and prepare, feeling emotionally and financially overwhelmed is inevitable.
In fact, a recent Harvard survey found that while most Americans look forward to the holidays, “Sixty-two percent of respondents described their stress level as ‘very or somewhat’ elevated during the holidays” with only 10 percent reporting no stress during the season.
If you are looking for some solutions to ensure this holiday season is merry and bright, you’re in luck. These 3 simple tips will keep your holiday organized, by utilizing self-storage units near by. We know, we know, storage units aren’t always the first (or last) thing to come to mind when you think Christmas cheer, but we’re certain after reading, storage will at least have a place at the table!
1.) The Company Clear Out
If you are among the growing number of Americans who are choosing to live in homes that are more modest in size, hosting the holidays can be a bit of a challenge. Renting mini-storage is a potential solution, providing you with the opportunity to keep large, unnecessary items and belongings off-site, maximizing space within your home to entertain. With climate controlled units available at affordable prices, clearing out space within your home is easy, and won’t break the bank.
2.) Earn Some Extra Cash
According to Discover, “Holiday spending is one of the biggest reasons Americans go into debt. Nearly half of Americans will take four months or more to pay off all that debt, with nearly 12% opting to make only the minimum monthly payment. This means the debtor will take several years to pay off their debt at great cost.”
If you are considering taking on a side hustle to earn some extra cash during the holidays, such as selling items online or renting your home out to guests, self-storage can provide you with a location to store inventory or valuable belongings. Facilities offer 24-7 security, video surveillance and intricate key-lock entry systems, ensuring your possessions remain safe and secure.
3.) Store Seasonal Decor
Once the holidays are through, finding a place to keep your seasonal decor can be a challenge. In order to keep your attic or garage from being filled with items you only need once a year, renting storage can keep your home clutter free and organized for belongings you use on a daily basis. Best of all, with various sizes available, finding a unit that is the right size (and price) for your family is a breeze.
So, consider asking Santa for a self-storage unit this holiday season. Your home will be clear for company, you can earn a little extra cash, and your seasonal decor will be tucked away until the following year. To a happy, healthy, and stress-free holiday!
“It’s true, Christmas can feel like a lot of work, particularly for mothers. But when you look back on all the Christmases in your life, you’ll find you’ve created family traditions and lasting memories. Those memories, good and bad, are really what help to keep a family together over the long haul.” -Caroline Kennedy
