Haven’t Been Home In A While?

Couple on the road driving and text "Havent't been home in a while?"

If you travel for work or you’re away at school, then weeks or months may go by between the times when you’re at home. You enjoy what you do or you’re having fun while working towards your degree, but there’s something comforting about coming back home to a familiar place.

Whether you live on your own or you’re going back to your parents’ house, it can be easy to forget about how much stuff you have stored in the closets or in boxes in the basement. When you come home for the first time in a long time, you may realize that there’s more clutter than you remembered, and your first priority is to find a place to put some things. At EZ Storage® in Pittsburgh, we can help you find the perfect self-storage unit!


Hitting the Road for Weeks

When traveling for work, you might spend weeks away from home, which can mean certain things get pushed down the priority list. You wanted to organize the basement or the garage, but you came home after weeks on the road and just didn’t feel like you had the energy. Before you knew it, it was time to go back out on the road, and the basement or garage is still a mess.

One of the best ways to tackle this is to devote an hour the day after you get home to going through some boxes and tubs. If you rent a storage space, then you can sort those items that you want to keep into boxes that will go into the unit, and the rest of your stuff can be put back on the shelves or donated to a local charity. You might be surprised about how much you’ve gone through in just an hour’s time!

Spending Months at School

If you’re a college student, then you likely spend months away at school. You might be close to home, but even if you are, your only visits are on weekends, and those visits might only last for a few hours. If you’re going to school in another state, then the entire semester might go by before you head back home, unless there’s a holiday.

Upon your return, it’s very likely that you’ll have stuff that needs to be gone through and sorted. Your mom or dad may want you to tackle those boxes in your bedroom closet right away, and while you may not feel like it, it can definitely decrease the amount of clutter in the house. After all, you’re likely going to be living on your own very soon, and it can be good to know what you want to take with you when you move out, what can be stored, and what can be tossed or given away.

If you haven’t been home in a while and you’re feeling overwhelmed by the amount of stuff in your closets, your basement, or your garage, then let EZ Storage® help. With three locations across the greater Pittsburgh area, you can find a self-storage unit that’s close to home and that fits your budget.
