Designate another Room in Your Home for Storage

Alternatively, to save money during this cost-of-living crisis you could cordon off a room in your house that isn’t used often and designate it as the storage room.

If you have space in your house that you don’t use often—for example, a guest bedroom or an empty corner of the basement—it could be the perfect solution for your storage.

If you’re having trouble giving up your space, keep in mind that it can just be temporary until you have saved enough to invest in a self storage unit, and that it’s the most cost effective option you’ve got.

However, obviously many people due to the housing price crisis are in smaller properties than they would wish and do not have a spare room that they can use as storage. Therefore, external self storage is often the best option for owners and renters of smaller properties.

Rent a Portable Storage Container

A portable storage container is like having your very own storage facility located right in your driveway. It’s a popular option for storage during remodelling because it provides you with the ability to completely clear items out of your home while also maintaining the flexibility and convenience of having those items on hand when you need them.

The length of time your portable storage container stays on your property is up to you.

However, it could cause a stir with neighbours and is obviously a cumbersome eyesore on your driveway. Therefore, perhaps a traditional self storage unit that is external but handily accessible with many close by locations such as Boylin’s Self Store could be the better choice.

Store Your things with a Friend or Family Member

You may not have room in your home to store items right now, but perhaps you know someone else who does.

It’s worth asking around to see if anyone has a bit of space to lend you for a little while, though be sure to ask about any timelines they have in mind for when they want you to pick everything back up.

Handy Hacks for How to Store Your Items Safely

After considering your options if you have decided to invest in self storage, here are some handy hacks of how to store your items safely:

  • Label your boxes. Put together a labelling system so that you can quickly identify what’s where. You can label the contents right on the boxes themselves. or you can number the boxes and put together a corresponding spreadsheet with details of what’s inside.
  • Store your most-used items front and centre. Make it easy to grab what you need by storing the items you use the most at the front of your storage pile. Alternately, put those items that you don’t expect to need very often (think: furniture and seasonal items) in the back.
  • Leave a clear path between boxes. For safety and convenience, leave yourself a path between your stored items. That way, you won’t have any trouble getting to an item in the back if you need to.
  • Cover up large items. Covering your larger items with things like sheets and blankets will help to keep them safe. Covering them will also help to prevent dust build up and will help to keep your furniture clean and will help to preserve them for long periods of time, leaving you to come back to safe, clean furniture and the rest of your household items.
  • Wrap fragile items: If you are storing away fragile items be sure to wrap them properly and safely this will save anything from breaking when moving them about. Wrapping them will help prevent any unwanted cracks and other unwanted damages. A good tip is to wrap smaller fragile items within clothes.
