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

guardians-rideAdmit it: you went to see Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy in 2014. Even if you didn’t, that nerdy friend of yours forced you to watch it later, and you ended up cackling at the funny parts. Well, there were a lot of funny parts. It was a funny movie. And now, a mere three years later, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is hitting theaters on May 5th.

But that’s not all. Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout is opening on May 27th. This amusement park ride will have a heart-pounding drop mimicking the infamous Tower of Terror and breathtaking views of California Adventure from the top. Plus, it incorporates an all-new adventure starring the Guardians! Read the rest »

Things of Value: Treasure for Future Generations

By Storbox Self-Storage on May 16, 2017 - Comments off

There’s all sorts of advice out there on what you should leave your children and grandchildren someday—and most of it centers on money. Start an IRA! Invest in bonds! Create a living trust for them!

But, “not everything that counts can be counted, and not everything that can be counted counts.” Often attributed to Albert Einstein, recent research indicates these wise words were written by William Bruce Cameron, a professor of sociology, in 1963. And he’s right. The kind of “value” grandparents offer children has very little to do with money.

We all wish we’d gotten to know our own grandparents better. Poignant lists of “things I wish I’d asked Grandma before she died” float around online and sit in our own hearts.

artistSo you graduated art school, or just decided to become a professional illustrator yesterday, or you hit your mid-life crisis full force. Now, you need a dedicated studio for your creative urges—but the way the housing market is looking, you won’t be able to afford that spare room. You can try to contain your creativity to a closet, or you can set up camp in a bathroom (easier to clean), or you can drag out the drop cloth in your bedroom every time you need to ART…but these are pitiful measures that cannot solve the studio space problem.

Whether You’re a Filer or a Piler, Excess “Stuff” Is a Problem

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

No matter what age, people break down into two basic groups: “filers” and “pilers.”

The filers are usually organized, making-lists-type people. They have definite boundaries in their mental processes and tend to keep their physical domains neat, logically arranged, and color-coded. If there’s too much stuff, they consider whether they “really” need it—and if not, they get rid of it.

Pilers are the opposite type of people. Hoarders may be the extreme end of the “piling” spectrum, but all pilers usually keep things around them—even too many things—due to emotional attachments. The thought that they might need or want “it” someday keeps “it” safe from the bin. You could say that filers are the brain-based organizers, and pilers the heart-based organizers.
