November Jobs for Lifestyle Storers

easyStorage takes its regular look at what might go into and out of storage this month, as a guide for the growing band of lifestyle storers (people who use their storage unit to keep their costs down and make the most of their homes).

November. Darker nights and Christmas racing towards us at full speed. Whether you’re a stalwart partygoer or staying in by the fire, whether you’re a ‘Christmas starts early in our house’ or a ‘Christmas starts a week before and ends before New Year’, here are a few helpful nudges for our ‘Lifestyle Storers’ regarding what might go into and out of storage this month.

We can no longer hide from it. Despite the fact that we’re all feeling the pinch, the stores are all full of goodies and Christmas is upon us!

Christmas preparations: Decluttering to make room

Lifestyle storers will want a massive declutter and move out one or two things into storage to make space for Christmas decorations and Christmas guests.

Some of our previous blog posts may help inspire you with the decluttering:

·         Ten tips on the way to Decluttering Nirvana (with a hat tip to Marie Kondo, of course)

·         Home decluttering ideas

·         Swedish Death Cleaning (A lot less gruesome than the name implies!)

With all of us feeling the pinch, keep an eye out on our blog for some tips on which sites are out there to sell on your preloved things that you are not putting into storage.

Christmas preparations: Decorations

And of course, the end of the month is time for many to get out their Christmas decorations, test the fairy lights’ bulbs, dust down the tinsel, wipe over the table decorations and generally prepare. (Some prefer to wait until two weeks before Christmas to put up those decorations – your Christmas, your choice!)

Of course, if you’re simply pragmatic about things and want to limit yourself to one storage run only this month, you may prefer to wait until your Black Friday goodies have arrived. (Yes, that annual money saving ‘spendfest’ is upon us on Friday November 25.)

Christmas preparations: Hiding the presents

Where better to hide those presents from the prodders and the shakers than in your storage unit?

Left over Fireworks

Fireworks should never be held in a self-storage unit.

There is some sound advice on their proper storage here: How to store your fireworks at home safely and legally.

Claire joined the easyStorage family as a blogger in August 2020 and is loving it! Her passions include writing and learning, and with easyStorage she’s learning new things fast. When not tapping at a keyboard she can be found renovating an old cottage, despite having inherited a complete lack of DIY skills from her father. She has two children, now grown up, and a dopey, loving Vizler (dog), Chester, who steadfastly refuses to do the same. She claims he’s her soulmate!
