The Holiday Season is one of the busiest times of the year. Frequently our friends, neighbors and ourselves say we just don't know how we’re going to get everything done before Christmas. For families with children where both parents work, their free time is already at a premium.
Some preplanning and organization helps enormously, and storage can clear the deck for action, all easing the stress. Start by using a planning calendar where everyone can see and write on it.
Get family members together in a brief meeting to list all events on the same calendar. This helps eliminate double booking dates
If you're planning a party, clean the house one weekend ahead and prepare any food you can, freezing or refrigerating it until your event. If you’re having music and considering dancing, you can temporarily store the dining or family room furniture and clear a larger space for fun!
If you plan to do a really festive job of decorating, you can even store extra easy chairs and footstools, end tables, things that might be in the way if you want to make room for a big, beautiful tree.
Of course “Santa's Secret” is that a self-service storage unit is the perfect place to hide special Christmas gifts away from curious eyes of children (of all ages - even the grown up ones) until the “Big Day”! In short, storage can help ease your stress during the holidays, and continue being useful throughout the year. It really is your “invisible holiday assistant”!
