College Students: To Store or Not to Store
Stay in one place long enough and you will end up with more stuff than you know what to do with. If you live in a dorm room or a small apartment, it seems like things have a way of accumulating without you even noticing. It can be frustrating to figure out what to do with everything at the end of each year—clothes you may never wear again, books from three semesters ago, various knick-knacks and momentos lining your shelves where the books should be (they, of course, are stacked on your desk and on the floor because there is no more room on the bookshelf). These things seem to continue to take up more and more space each year, as you move from dorm room to dorm room, apartment to apartment, until your ability to live comfortably is severely limited.
Although you might get rid of a few things, you are never sure which of these things you might need or want some day. Things that don’t seem important now might be vital a little further down the road. Even if you don’t know what to throw out, you can still declutter your college home or room and give yourself a little more breathing room. Farming out your extra items to a storage unit will give you options and might even help make your place feel more like home. Self storage for college students is an idea worth considering whether you are bursting at the seams in your tiny dorm room or embarking on an exciting semester abroad.
