Women’s History Month Part 4: How Self Storage Can Help Busy Moms

Being a mom is sort of like playing a never-ending game of Whac-A-Mole.

You clean the kitchen. Bam! But now there is the laundry to put away. Bam! It’s March and you haven’t even taken your outdoor holiday lights down yet.

Drop even one of the balls you have in the air and your home—and your life—can quickly get out of control.

One way to help restore order is by having enough space. Imagine closets that aren’t overflowing. A basement where you can quickly and easily find everything. A garage with enough room to actually park your car.

Self storage can’t solve all your problems, but it can take the edge off of your space crunch.

10 Reasons to Rent a Storage Unit as a Mom

Here are 10 ways that self storage can help whack the moles in your home.

1. Keep Kids’ Clothing and Toys in a Safe Space

In between babies? What do you do with all that stuff? If you’re short on space at home, a self storage unit can keep it all out of the way until your next little one comes along. It’s also a good place to keep items for future grandchildren.

2. Protect Your Family’s Active Gear and Equipment

Active families are happy families—until it’s time to stash all of your camping gear and off-season sports equipment. Self storage is an easy and affordable solution.

3. Hold Onto Keepsakes You Don’t Have Room For

It’s sad but true that you and your husband aren’t kids anymore. And that might mean that your comic book or record collection might need someplace to stay until you can get one of your bedrooms back someday.

4. House Your Extra Vehicles Instead of Selling Them

Same goes for that motorcycle or Jet Ski. Sure, you can keep it, but your garage is now filled with bikes and scooters.

5. Maintain Your Holiday Decorations for Next Year

Everyone loves a big Christmas, complete with outdoor lights bright enough to make Clark Griswold jealous. Self storage keeps you from becoming a Grinch when it’s time to take everything down.

6. Self Storage Gives You Room to Follow Your Aspirations

You’ve always wanted to be your own boss, so you finally started your own small business. You don’t quite need warehouse space yet, but you definitely need more space. Self storage can help bridge that gap.

7. Preserve Family Heirlooms – Just Not in Your House

You’ve inherited a bunch of antiques, but they’re not your thing. Climate-controlled self storage can keep them safe until you decide what you want to do with them.

8. Make Home Moving a Smoother Transition

Moving? Unfortunately, that sometimes means there’s a gap between when you have to leave your old home and when your new home is ready for you to move in. Sure, you can stay with your parents, but they don’t have room for all your stuff. Self storage is a convenient solution.

9. Keep Your Patio Furniture and Equipment Safe for the Winter

Outdoor living is all the rage, but where do you store all of those cushions and planters after the season is over? Self storage can get you through winter, without your entire garage being taken over.

10. Give Yourself a Reason to Get Out of the House

Need 20 minutes to yourself? Of course you do, you’re a busy mom! Tell the rest of the family you need to get something important from the storage unit, head to Starbucks for a latte, turn on some music, and enjoy the ride.
