Get Ready for Back-to-School Time

August is nearly half over, and for parents of young children across the greater Detroit area, that means it’s almost back-to-school time! You may have already started your back-to-school shopping, and your kids are excited to have a new backpack, new pencils, and new folders for all of their subjects. However, once the semester starts and you go through the house, what kind of state will your home be in? At EZ Storage®, we can help you find the right self-storage unit for all those things that the kids played with or used during the summer, but that now needs to be put away for the fall and winter.

Toys and Games

dreamstime_xxl_38757044Summer is filled with fun, and you may have purchased some new toys and games for the kids over the past few months. They played and played with them, but now that school is starting again, it might be time to put some of those things away. The focus will need to be on schoolwork and getting things done on time, and too many toys and games could be a distraction.

Have your child pick out those games that they’ll still want to play with over the next few months, and the toys that can be easily stored in their bedroom or playroom. All of those larger items, like outdoor toys or that new bike or scooter they got this summer, can be put into storage until next year.

School Wardrobe

Another fun thing about back-to-school time is buying new clothes for the new semester. The kids have been running around in t-shirts and shorts all summer, but now they need to have some new jeans and long-sleeve shirts for the upcoming fall. Boxing up all those summer clothes and putting them in storage will get them out of the way, and make room for the new wardrobe.

If there are clothes that your kids no longer wear, then wash them, box them up, and put them in storage until you find a place to donate them, or you find a friend or relative who can take them. Freeing up space in your kids’ closets can make getting ready for school much easier during those first few weeks, since they won’t have to hunt through countless options.

Less Clutter Means Less Stress

dreamstime_xxl_97485078The beginning of a new school year can be stressful for the entire family, and having less clutter can help you feel more at ease during the end of August and beginning of September. Taking a weekend to go through the house and box up some things can help you get things out of the way, and prepare for a successful start of the semester.

If you’re looking for a self-storage unit in Detroit for those toys and games, those summer clothes, or those extra items that are simply taking up too much space in the house, then come to EZ Storage® today. We have several locations across the greater metro area, and the staff at each one will gladly help you find a suitable space.
