Getting the House Ready for the Holidays

November is only a few days away, and before you know it, Thanksgiving will be here and gone. After that, you have the December holidays to look forward to, and then the New Year. At EZ Storage® in Detroit, we know how hectic this time of year can be, as you scramble to get the house ready for guests and for those big family dinner where every aunt, uncle, and cousin is in attendance. A self-storage unit can be a great idea during the holiday season, since it provides a place for you to put all of those things that you need out of the house for the next two to three months.

Lower Your Stress Levels

The holidays are supposed to be a festive and happy time, but for many, they can be stressful and frenetic. If you’re in charge of organizing family gatherings, or you have to figure out how you’re going to get everyone to grandma’s house in Ohio, then your stress levels may be steadily climbing as the season goes on. When it comes to storage, it’s good to have a company who understands your needs and who will help you find the ideal space for your belongings. Our team knows how to recommend the right unit based on the number and size of your items, and how long you need to store everything. When you’re finished putting things into storage, we want you to feel less stressed and more optimistic about your holiday gatherings.


Which Rooms Need to Be Cleared?

One way to keep everything organized this year is to decide which rooms or areas need to be cleared in order to make room for house guests and holiday decorations. If the basement is cluttered with boxes and excess furniture, then move those items into storage and create a spacious gathering area for friends and family. If the guest bedroom has been collecting random things throughout the year, then box everything up and put it into your unit until the New Year arrives. Choosing two or three rooms to clear out can give you the space you need and help you feel more at ease before those first guests arrive.

Making Room for Gifts

dreamstime_xxl_45203124The focus of your holiday season is not on the gifts you’re going to receive, but those that you’re going to give and the quality time you’ll get to spend with friends and family. However, if your family does exchange gifts, then you’ll inevitably end up with new items that you have to find a place for in the house. You can be proactive and plan for this by clearing out those older items for the closets and other spaces throughout the house. If you think that you’re going to get some new clothes for the holidays, then box up some old clothes and put them in storage. If the kids are going to get a bunch of brand new toys, then box up some old games and toys and add them to your unit. Once the busyness of the holidays has passed, you can go through those boxes and tubs and decide what you want to keep and what you can donate or give away.

At EZ Storage®, we’re always ready to help you find the ideal self-storage solution. We have eight Detroit metro-area locations, and each one can provide you with a unit that meets your needs. If you’re trying to get your house ready for the holidays, then let us supply the best space for you. Every unit is available on a month-to-month basis, so you can rent one for the time you need.

We look forward to meeting you!
