September 1st has arrived and thus, another year at your totally normal, average school of witchcraft and wizardry. It’s come at the perfect time, too. A few months shacked up in the cupboard under the stairs had you wishing you were in a boring class on the history of plants and potions. Those classrooms were air-conditioned anyway, unlike your pathetic excuse of a cupboard. You couldn’t sleep without waking up in a hot sweat.
But you didn’t have all bad memories in that paltry abode. Sitting in the cobweb-infested corner next to your shabby desk is a stack of envelopes that you don’t ever want to throw away. You remember the day your wretched relatives started stashing your mail. They didn’t want you to see your acceptance letter to Hogwarts, but little did they know, you were going to get it no matter what! You want to memorialize the day those letters came flooding in through every crevice in the house, because of the funny faces your relatives made. Plus, it was pretty cool to get into a school that teaches magic. So, you kept the envelopes.
Then there are the boxes of your favorite muggle possessions. One summer without magic meant taking a trip to your local game store and buying a gaming system. That led to an endless bounty of games that you either beat or gave up on. (Shame magic doesn’t work on technology.)
You started reading books too. Who knew books without magic could be so fun? Yours happened to be on the….more romantic side…so you hid them under your mattress out of embarrassment.
You missed donning your black robes every day at Hogwarts, so you decided to spend everything you had on black clothes from the finest haberdashery you could find. It was the summer too, so you had to find clothes that didn’t make you hotter than a goblet of fire. They’re all laying in a pile near your door, because you literally have no closet. Heck, your room is the closet. But, you hope your relatives don’t throw them away.
When you’re away defeating dementors and helping your headmaster keep the school from falling apart, you’ll need a good place to keep your muggle belongings. Try StorBox! Open seven days a week (excluding some muggle holidays), you’ll be able to retrieve your belongings any time you want. Just don’t let your friend use that flying car to get there…
