Moving is always stressful, especially when you are combining two households into one. Newlyweds have their own special set of challenges that they must overcome together. In addition to compressing two sets of possessions, they have to decide what to do with their wedding presents. Some couples suddenly have three toasters, a couple of microwaves, two sets of dishes and enough towels and linens to outfit three homes. Deciding how to deal with the overflow can frequently be the first test of marriage. A Katy self storage unit might be the answer and give you some time to make important decisions on what to keep.
The sheer burden of moving can frazzle anyone’s nerves. Packing, loading, hauling, unloading, unpacking and arranging your joint possessions in your new living space is nerve-wracking, time-consuming and seemingly never-ending. One good tip is to plan before you move regarding which of your possessions and gifts you want to use at your new home. As you pack your goods, mark the boxes you want to put in a Katy mini storage unit. Spare kitchen appliances, holiday decorations and surplus bric-a-brac fit nicely in moving boxes without taking up much space. You can also put larger bulky items like extra bedroom furniture, a spare dining room table or a second washer and dryer in storage until you get a chance to them.
Sentimental items liked framed pictures, photo albums and book collections can also be put in a Katy climate controlled storage unit until the rest of your possessions have been unpacked and arranged in your new home. Then, you can retrieve your favorite things, hang them on the wall or put them on a bookshelf. They will be out of the way when you are emptying your moving boxes, and they will be safe from any type of accident resulting from the flurry of activity. You might even want to move these items into your storage unit ahead of time to eliminate the possibility of damage by the moving company.
Do not overload your garage with tools, sports gear and boxes of miscellaneous things. You want to have enough space to safely park your vehicles where they belong. Put your seasonal items like lawn furniture, bicycles, kayaks or soccer gear in storage until it is time to enjoy them.
After you have settled into your home, you can sell the items in your storage locker that you do not need. You could use the extra cash for a new entertainment system or a second honeymoon. You can always rent another self-storage unit for additional possessions that you want to store.
