You Can’t Take It With You

By Storbox Self-Storage on November 5, 2017 - Comments off

granny-2347552_1920You’ve been dreading this moment for a long time. Maybe you’re a grandma or grandpa. Maybe you’re the loyal daughter to amazing, elderly parents, but it’s a stressful time for all (tell your husband to stop smiling; at least wait for them to step through the doors). It’s time to make the move into a nursing home. While these facilities offer great services for the elderly, especially those who need medical help, they might not be so accommodating about space.

Storing Your Dead Bodies (for Halloween, Of Course)

By Storbox Self-Storage on October 21, 2017 - Comments off

close-up-1838545_1920It’s sooooo hard to find a place to store bodies nowadays. I mean, you can try putting them in the closet, but closets only offer so much space. And what if you have more than one? The bodies are just going to pile up and then where are you supposed to put your box of receipts for tax season?

Then there’s the smell. Not only does it stink up the entire house to the point where you need a Febreze bottle for every room, but that odor also attaches itself to every piece of clothing you own, including that designer jacket you got for 60% off original price (good job, by the way). And how long are you going to tell your visitors that it’s “just the dog?” Don’t blame Griffin. It’s not his fault you’re bad with organizational management. Read the rest »

figures-2775971_1920Do you remember the time your eyes first met? Time slowly came to halt as you stole a glance from across the Barnes & Noble. You waded past the crowd until you stood right in front of each other in the connecting Starbucks. The woman smiled as she dug into her purse and pulled out….a mint condition Chewbacca collectible.

Time to Put the White Wines in Storage and Break Out the Winter Reds!

By Storbox Self-Storage on October 3, 2017 - Comments off

wine-2490636_1920Seasonal wines are becoming increasingly popular in fine dining. Knowing what wines to serve (and how to store them) can make your dinner party feel at least 50% more expensive.

According to a Taste of Wine, “There is no simple formula for wines being seasonal; instead, it’s a question of what wines feel like and how a wine pairs not just with food, but also with the surrounding temperature or weather.” That said, let’s dive in to what we think fulfills the “seasonal” ticket.

Has My Stored Wine Been Corked?

By Storbox Self-Storage on September 24, 2017 - Comments off

wine-2569569_1920There are several things that can go wrong with wine, leaving it unpalatable to drinkers. Corked wine is one of them.

“Corked wine” does not mean the cork is floating in the wine. It isn’t the small white crystals that sometimes form on cork. (These crystals are tartrate, a natural by-product of some wines. Tartrates are harmless.)

Instead, corked wine is wine contaminated with cork taint. Cork taint is caused by a chemical called 2,4,6-trichloroanisole (TCA). This chemical forms when fungi (that is naturally in cork) comes in contact with the chlorides in bleach during the sanitation of winery equipment. Cork taint can infect a cellar…or an entire winery.
