What to Do When You’re Downsizing Your Space

By Storbox Self-Storage on September 8, 2016 - Comments off

Relocating to a new area can be a daunting and stressful task. This especially rings true if you’re a kid. Moving to a new home or a new school is a big change, and adjusting can be difficult. Trying to turn your new space into a home is something that takes time. Unfortunately, not all spaces are the same and, in some circumstances, people move into smaller homes, leaving an abundance of household items that remain in boxes. Sometimes when we downsize, we can weed out items we don’t need and simply get rid of some of the clutter that formerly filled up a larger home. However, more often than not, a lot of the items that you held near and dear to your heart, and that you no longer have room for in your new home, need a place to stay sit until you’re able to incorporate them into your home decorating again.

Carefully Packing Old Items is the Key to Preserving Them

First and foremost, when storing any item, be sure that the item is properly protected with the right type of packaging. This means that any fragile items are carefully and fully wrapped in packing paper or bubble wrap in order to avoid any moving or storage damage. If an item is breakable, you’re going to want to wrap it in bubble wrap to preserve it for the long haul. Another thing to be mindful of is the organization of your packages. Carefully labeling the contents of your boxes in detail can help assess the placement of boxes when being put into storage. Basically, if you have a box of delicate wine glasses, you’re not going to want to place that box below your collection of bowling balls. By properly labeling all boxes, you can help ensure that your items are safe and sound in their new storage space.
