A-1 Self Storage | November 9, 2023 @ 12:00 AM

It's not hard to believe that 88% of people say the holiday season stresses them out.

What's shocking is that 29% of that stress comes from dealing with decorations!

Are you sick and tired of all the holiday stress? Finding a reliable storage unit to keep your decor can make all the difference in your holiday experience. Storage units offer a safe, practical, and cost-effective solution for the holidays.

Keep reading to learn the top 7 reasons you should invest in a self-storage unit this holiday season.

1. Make Room for Holiday Decor

Rent a small storage unit to make room for your festive Christmas decorations. Substitute artwork and an armchair with a wreath and a gorgeous tree. To create room for holiday gatherings, declutter your entryway, living room, or family room. 

Rent a 5x10 or 10x10 unit to store out-of-season decorations and additional belongings. Save time and money by using our guide to choose the right size unit for you.

2. Keep Holiday Gifts a Surprise

If you have young kids, some of their presents are likely to be big and oddly shaped (ever tried wrapping a bike?). And, no matter where you try to conceal them in the house, they will be discovered before the big day.

If you have older children, most of their presents will probably be smaller electronics, making them simpler to hide. However, older kids can reach just about anywhere you hide their gifts and are better at finding your best hiding places.

Rent a storage unit to keep your presents a secret until Santa arrives! This is the ideal spot for carefully storing your gifts so that everyone can appreciate the excitement of Christmas!

3. Reclaim Your Spare Room

If you're lucky enough to have a spare room, it'll most likely become a disaster throughout the year when it's not being used to house visitors. Then Christmas arrives, and you're confronted with finding a place for Grandad or Aunty Jean to sleep.

If you need to clear out your spare room so that your visitors have somewhere to stay during the holidays, you can easily store the items in your self-storage unit. It's up to you whether you choose to retrieve them and bring them back into the spare room after everybody has gone home, or whether you want to keep them in your storage unit year-round.

4. Set Up a Holiday Wrapping Station

Choose a room or a section in your home to declutter and set up a Christmas wrapping center. You can use a new storage unit to put the stuff in your spare room away, and make room for a Christmas wrapping station!

Wherever you set up your wrapping station, make sure you have all your essentials in one place to make the process easy. Then you'll be able to wrap and store all of your holiday gifts away from curious eyes.

5. Keep Your Home Neat and Organized

You might be surprised by how cluttered your home becomes during the holidays, as decorations, bows, and gift wrap pile up. You want your house to be clean and tidy, not just for visitors but also for yourself and your children.

Putting things you won't use over the holidays in storage will help you make room for all of your gifts and decorations, without creating a big mess. You'll have more room to set up a wrapping station, and you'll be able to keep track of everything you've bought.

6. Store Seasonal Décor Year-Round

Why not store all of your Christmas decorations in one easy-access storage unit once the holidays are over? Holiday decorations, Christmas trees, themed dinnerware, wrapping materials, ornament storage, lights, and other items may all be stored in your self-storage unit.

Mark the boxes with the name of what's in each one, and it'll be much faster and less stressful to set up your Christmas décor next year! Holiday decoration storage is the perfect solution to make your holiday more relaxed.

7. Running Out of Room?

If you're running out of room in your home or business, a self-storage facility is a safe and cost-effective way to store your items. Self-storage is also a good alternative for anybody who wants to declutter their current living or working space by storing stuff that they don't need to see every day but don't want to get rid of completely.

Self-storage spaces come in various sizes, and rental agreements can include both short- and long-term storage. Self-storage units are becoming so popular that most people simply decide to rent out a long-term unit for convenience.

Climate-controlled storage units are also available (depending on the storage facility) to fit practically anything you want to store – within reason.
