Every year in the U.S., more than two million people cross the threshold into marital bliss. Do you realize what that means? That means there are literally millions of wedding gifts purchased each and every year. While special snapshots from your special day can be stored in photo albums, what’s a newly married couple to do with all of the new (and sometimes large) gifts their friends and family so graciously purchased to help congratulate them? Let’s think about this for a minute or two…
When engaged couples put together wedding registries, two things almost always take place. One, items that the couple will regularly use are added to the registries. These include items such as everyday flatware, bath towels, and kitchen items. Two, items that the couple will not use on a regular basis, or that the couple kind of wants but would never purchase for themselves, are added to the registries. These items include fine china, some kitchen appliances, and decorative rugs or mirrors. Now, while the engaged couple clearly likes all items added to the registry and would be happy to receive them all, that doesn’t necessarily mean that the couple has a proper place to store these newly acquired items once the vows are said and done.
Items that will be regularly used are more times than not going to replace existing items that the couple already has. In some cases, the older items being replaced will be gotten rid of, but in other cases they might want to be held onto. The same can be said for many of the items that are not regularly used. With these items, it might not even be a matter of whether or not they’re going to be used, but whether or not there is space to actually store them in the couple’s home. So what’s a new married couple to do with too much stuff and not enough space? Self-storage units offer the solution.
With a self-storage unit, not only will newlyweds have extra room to keep all of those new items, but they can also rest assured that the items will be safe and secured. Regardless of how much or how little space is needed to store weddings gifts (or the items they’re replacing), a storage facility can definitely accommodate the workload. And if you want to upgrade your storage space down the line, maybe because you’re moving into a smaller space or simply growing your family, a storage facility with multiple unit size options is the perfect, long-term solution.
