Holding on to Baby Stuff?

Collection of baby toys with text "holding on to baby stuff"

When you have a baby, you receive all kinds of gifts and buy all kinds of things so you have everything you need for your newborn. You get clothes, furniture, toys, and more, and you find that you use or need everything for at least a few years. Of course, your little one will soon outgrow clothes and become tired with certain toys, and you’ll have to figure out what to do with those items. You may have friends or siblings who plan on having kids in the next few years, so you hold on to clothes and toys until you can give everything to them. However, the question is, what do you do with these things in the interim? At EZ Storage® in Pittsburgh, we can keep your belongings safe until you decide what to do with them.

Passing Things On

If you’re the oldest child in your family, or the first to have kids, you may want to help out your siblings and their families once they decide to have children of their own. You might have baby and toddler clothes for both boys and girls, and by holding on to these items, you can help your siblings save money once their new baby arrives. The same is true for toys and furniture, and any way you can help your brother or sister save will be greatly appreciated. Even though you have to store these items for a while, you know that it will be worth it.

Donating Items

dreamstime_xxl_43315283When you had your first child, you most likely had an influx of clothes, toys, and other baby items. With the second child, you may not have received or purchased as many items simply because you had options that were still in good condition from your first baby. Once you reach child number three and four, you’re a pro at keeping everything organized and in good shape. However, once you’re done having kids, you might be thinking about what you can do with those items that are still usable.

One option is to donate clothes, toys, and furniture to families who may not have the means by which to buy everything they need. Local churches and nonprofits will often have donation drives where they take your lightly used items, which they then distribute to new or expecting parents who need a crib, a changing table, or newborn clothes for their son or daughter. Once you’ve decided that it’s time to get rid of those baby items, you can clean out your storage unit and use it for other items that you don’t want to keep at home.

If you’ve been holding on to baby stuff for a few years now and you want to get those items out of your house, come to EZ Storage® today. We can help you store boxes and furniture for as long as you need, and with our monthly storage leases, you can rent a unit for as long as you need without having to worry about signing a contract.
