This time of year can be a lot of fun, and with Halloween just around the corner, you might be looking forward to the fall and winter holidays. However, this time of year can also be stressful, and it’s important to make sure you’re organized before family and friends begin showing up at your house. Even if you’re not hosting people this year, there are things you can do to save yourself from stress during the holiday season. At EZ Storage® in Detroit, we can provide self-storage for those gifts you’ve already purchased, furniture you need to move out of the house, and anything else you need to store!

Make a List for Everything

10236061_calendarYou might be in the habit of making a list of gifts you’re going to buy for relatives and friends, and that can make life easier as you make your way through the mall. It can also be a good idea to make a list of what you need to do in the house, such as cleaning the guest room or replacing light bulbs in the living room. You want your house to be festive and inviting, and leaving things until the last minute will only add to your stress levels.

Calendars are also a great thing to keep handy during this time of year. You may have company parties in October, November, and December, and it’s a pretty safe bet that your kids will have activities as well. Marking down what day and what time everything is will help you keep the family organized and on time for each event.

Make Space for Guests and Gifts

December isn’t too far away, and if you have guests coming that you’re buying gifts for, you need to make sure there is room for both. You might need to clean out a few closets so that you can wrap and hide gifts, and you also want to have the space for guests to hang their clothes, especially if they’re staying for a week or more. You don’t want them to have to live out of their suitcases, and you’ll also need a place to store those during their stay.

Make a Budget

dreamstimefree_3424360One of the most stressful things about the holidays can be the amount of money that you spend. You’re buying gifts, food, and other items seemingly every week, and while trying to keep an eye on your bank account, you still find that you’re spending more than you anticipated. If you need self-storage during this time of the year, that simply adds a line item to your budget.

At EZ Storage®, we’re dedicated to providing convenient and affordable solutions that fit into your holiday budget. Our month-to-month leases make it easy to store things for a short period of time, so if you only need storage for the next three months, that’s all you have to pay for!
