Is it your turn to host family Christmas this year? You may live in a small apartment and have minimal room, or you may have a pergola or sunroom that’s full of ‘junk’. Finding the space to fit all your family, friends and food on Christmas Day can be difficult. But, don’t stress, a small storage unit could be the perfect solution!
Renting a small storage unit over the Christmas period can benefit you for many reasons, plus it’s super affordable and convenient. If you have the job of hosting Christmas Day, you want to impress. So, let’s discuss why a storage unit will solve all your storage problems and help you ace Christmas day!
Reasons to rent a small storage unit over the Christmas period
Create space for guests
If you’re needing to make room for guests, storing furniture in a short-term storage unit can be a great way to do this. You may be hosting Christmas Day in your sunroom or pergola and it may be cluttered with random unused items. Or you may use one of these areas as a home gym, meaning there’s probably equipment cluttering the space. Furthermore, Store away whatever isn’t needed on Christmas day and you’ll find yourself with a lot more space to work with.
Clear out the spare rooms
You might find yourself needing extra space for friends and family to stay over. Often homeowners will have one or two spare rooms that are the designated ‘junk’ rooms. Aka ‘i have nowhere else to put this’. If this is the case for you, temporarily move all of that stuff into a self storage unit – you might even leave it there for good!
Once your spare rooms are clear, you will need to purchase sleeping materials. If you’re on a budget air mattresses can be a great alternative to buying a bed.
Hide presents from your children
Another great benefit of renting a small storage unit during the Christmas period is having somewhere to hide your kid’s presents. Storing them in a self storage unit will not only keep them hidden from your kid’s, but also from any pets that like to chew things up. Avoid putting presents under the tree and running the risk of them being ruined by the family dog. Store them in a self storage unit – all problems solved!
In addition, you can also utilise the space in your storage unit for wrapping Christmas presents. It can be hard to find time at home when no one is around. Wrap the presents in your storage unit, that way no one will see and ruin the surprise. Then you can leave them in your self storage unit until Christmas Day.
Who to store with?
When looking for short term self storage during the Christmas period you want to ensure you choose a reliable and trustworthy storage facility. You also want a facility that offers month to month storage contracts rather than yearly.
