There are various types of wine people in the world. There are the “don’t drink wine” people; the “I only cook with wine” people; the “one bottle of wine lasts for a month” people; the “wine with every dinner” people; the “intellectual, love to know about wines” wine people (these usually regularly drink it as well); the “wine is an integral part of my business” people; and the “I can’t wait for my next wine club” people. Granted I can throw in many more categories within those, but you get the idea.
Which Kind of People Need Wine Storage?
Now, I’m going out on a limb here, but it’s safe to say that the “don’t drink wine” people have no need for wine storage; unless of course they are a spy and need to establish the identity of a wine connoisseur, in which case wine storage in their name would come in very handy. The “only use wine for cooking” people probably don’t purchase wine in large enough amounts to warrant the need for wine storage, unless, again, the spy scenario applies. But every other type of wine person may find that wine storage is exactly what the doctor ordered. Read the rest »
The “throw everything in and shut the door” technique may be faster when moving things into your self-storage unit, but it is ultimately the worst way to organize, unless you’re storing a needle in a haystack, in which case that technique is perfect. To make sure you can find things when you want them and add things when you want to, and ensure you have room to put them there, you need to make sure your storage unit is properly organized for efficiency and convenience. Some of the key ways you can accomplish this include the following:
- Make sure you do not clutter the space around the door. Being able to get yourself, as well as the things you’re putting in/taking out of the unit, in and out of the unit easily is dependent on whether or not you have things blocking your way. I would keep two feet on either side of the door and six feet in front of the door clear (although the amount of space you leave would depend on the storage unit size). Read the rest »
Not many people realize how many different uses a self-storage unit has. It is not just for people who have an overflow of things. A self-storage unit is a way to help people organize and prioritize their life and living space, as well as their business. In case you are not aware of the many fantastic ways you can benefit from having a self-storage unit, here are some of the many reasons we love self-storage:
- If you live in an apartment, especially a small one, a self-storage unit can save you from having to invent complicated storage solutions.
- You can store winter clothes in the summer and summer clothes in the winter so you don’t have to stuff your closet all year long.
- It’s a place to put the furniture and or other items your parents bequeath to you.
- You can use it to store Christmas tree ornaments and holiday decorations.
- It can hold your business product inventory and paperwork.
- You can host scavenger hunts in it. Read the rest »
Goldilocks and the Three Bears is one of those beloved fairy tales your parents read to you when you were a kid, especially if you wanted to sleep in your parents’ bed and not your own, but the fairy tale also provides an important lesson when shopping for the right self-storage unit: You do not need to try out every size in order to find the size that is right for you (although that could be fun).
Finding a self-storage facility with a wide variety of unit sizes is a must because you never know what you’ll need or if you’ll need to upgrade your space, but you don’t have to try out each one to know if it is going to be too big or too small. That’s how Goldilocks got into trouble (specifically because she didn’t clean up after herself, but I digress). At STORBOX Self-Storage in Pasadena, we not only offer a wide variety of sizes, but our knowledgeable and friendly staff can help you choose the size that will best fit your needs. Read the rest »
