Whether it’s for college or to start a new life elsewhere, it’s practically inevitable that your child or children will eventually move out of the house one day. This can be problematic for many reasons, especially because there can be many items that won’t fit into a small dorm room or apartment, and simply must be left behind at home, which can be a real headache.
Many want to convert what used to be a kid’s room into a bedroom for house guests, an office, a study, or a multi-purpose room, but can’t deal with the emotional or logistical problems of getting rid of their child’s belongings. This often leads to increased clutter and items/boxes being strewn around the house, which can lead to clogged hallways, overflowing closets, visual eyesores, and a lot of other problems around your home. These issues can become exponentially worse with multiple children leaving the house.
Luckily these problems can be easily solved with a STORBOX storage unit. Having an external storage space can allow you to keep the furniture you want while not having to throw out the contents of that furniture (usually old clothes, old school projects, trophies, or other keepsakes) that can have a sentimental value. Even more useful items like school supplies or cookware can be easily re-accessed while not taking up valuable space in your home. Even bicycles, roller skates, helmets, basketballs, volleyballs, baseball bats, and any other miscellaneous sports equipment can be stored in a STORBOX rental unit, which can clean out much needed space in your home and/or garage. All of these items could make great hand-me-downs one day, if they’re in good condition. Who knows, at the end of all of the rigmarole, you may even be able to complete your home redesign, or have enough space in your garage for an extra car!
