It’s been said that the smallest apartment in New York City is 100 square feet. That’s a 10-foot by 10-foot room that includes a place to cook, a bathroom, and a bed, never mind a place to put your clothes, books, and other worldly goods. Most likely, you’re not as square-footage-challenged as that, but we can all use more ways to find storage areas in our home. A little ingenuity and maybe even a mini-storage unit can become the answers to all your storage needs.
It’s that time of year when all the New Year’s resolutions to lose weight, make more money, etc. begin to fade, but there is one resolution that doesn’t have to go by the wayside, and that is getting organized. Organization is key to apartment living in New York City—everything in its place and a place for everything—it’s how you keep the place looking tidy. What happens when you run out of places to store things? A little creativity coupled with a mini-storage unit, and you are on your way to keeping this resolution for the entire year.
So what happens after the stockings are hung by the chimney with care and the holidays are over? They, along with your ornaments, wreaths, candles etc. not only have to get put away properly, they need to be stored somewhere. No problem, unless of course your gifts this year included a mountain of new holiday decorations and you have nowhere to put them. Think outside the box in the New Year and simplify your life by getting a storage unit to put them in. It can be the gift you give yourself that keeps on giving for years to come.
One of the best parts of the holidays is putting up the decorations surrounded by family and friends, listening to carols, and drinking hot chocolate. It makes for wonderful memories. Then the holidays come to an end, and it’s time to pack everything up, but everyone has disappeared and the monumental task of putting everything away falls on you. It can be incredibly frustrating and back-breaking work, carrying it all back up to the attic or down to the basement—or you could give yourself a belated gift and rent a storage unit.
For so many of us, the word de-cluttering can send shivers down the spine. The very thought of moving your tea cup collection, that you never use but which your great-aunt gave you, gets you all choked up. You begin to feel guilty that if you move it, then she might not love you anymore, even though you know full well that she is 90 and living in an assisted living facility and will never know. The good news for you and your 750 square foot apartment in Chelsea is that you can rent a storage unit in Manhattan where your items will be kept safe and protected.
