We at Eden Way Storage Center hope all the kids in Chesapeake and the Hampton Roads area are enjoying a safe and happy “back to school” period so far. The transition from summer vacation to the first weeks of school challenges young minds. As our children adjust once again to life in the classroom and evenings of homework, it’s a good time to remind everybody of how self-storage can help in the fall season.
Self-Storage & Your College Students
Freshman year means excitement and nerves, new experiences away from home and a touch of empty nest syndrome for Mom and Dad… until the winter break. You might consider waiting until the end of the school year to rent a Chesapeake self-storage unit for your college student, but there are advantages to getting one early.
Think of everything you purchased for your child to prepare them for college. The bedding, the extra shelves, and the dorm decor will all come home eventually, along with other items they purchased throughout the year. They may not wish to pack everything to hold in the summer months, too, so where does that leave the stuff in their bedroom at home?
Your student will not take everything from home to college, most likely. Before you realize it, your child’s room may become an unexpected storage closet with no space for your child to sleep when they come back. Consider renting a unit to prepare for those lengthy breaks from classes.
Self-Storage & Your Grade School Students
As your children grow, their needs change. Children moving up from elementary to middle school need dedicated space in their rooms for study. You may have to clear out furniture and toys they have outgrown. If you’re not ready to sell or donate you can store what you are not using.
In addition, self-storage can be helpful for parents involved in school committees and activities. Decorations for holiday dances, homecomings, and other parent-teacher events have a secure home in a climate-controlled unit, away from your personal belongings so there are no mixups.
