Holidays, Birthdays, Anniversaries: the Re-Gifter’s Paradise

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

giftWhether you’re a parent, child, or office manager, you can agree that birthdays sometimes get out of control. The sheer piles of gifts, while delightful, can be daunting, even sobering. Do I really need all this stuff? Aren’t there starving children out there? Not to mention the invites: Who should I invite? Who do I have to invite? One of the most piquant characters you’ll find at the thrown birthday party is the “re-gifter:” That guy who just loves giving away his own stuff in the guise of a “gift.”

Re-gifters can be young or old. They can be male or female. They can have months of advance warning and still choose to wrap up that uneaten box of chocolates that was given to them last Christmas for your July anniversary. The re-gifter simply lives for the opportunity to catch hold of stuff and pass it along in a strange, generous-yet-stingy baseball game.

box-8680860Spring is in the air, and as the snow in the mountains begins to melt and the days get longer, it’s time to figure out where to stow your ski equipment, snowboarding equipment, down jacket, and other assorted winter gear. You’ve considered the garage, but that’s still filled with your surfboard, water skis, Jet Ski, and camping supplies. You could swap out your summer fun stuff with your winter fun stuff, but summer’s still a few months away. Even though you live in Southern California, it’s not quite beach weather yet. Spring is kind of a crossover season when the weather is unpredictable, to say the least. It could get up in the 80s or down into a rainy 50s on a daily basis, so you can’t really keep anything outside. So what’s the solution?

Save Money by Renting a Storage Unit

By Storbox Self-Storage on March 7, 2017 - Comments off

Rent for an apartment takes a substantial chunk of most people’s monthly income, leading many renters to consider downsizing in order to save a few bucks. But, if were you to downsize, you’d either have to get rid of a bunch of your stuff, or live in very cramped, uncomfortable conditions. No one wants to live like someone on the A&E show, Hoarders, but then again, no one wants to toss out treasured possessions like high school yearbooks, family heirlooms, photographs, wedding dresses, etc. Well, there is a way you can downsize and still keep the stuff you don’t want to get rid of—rent a storage unit.
