Storage Ideas For a Growing Family

  • Published in Blog

 

Are your kids growing up or is another baby on the way? Regardless of why your family is growing, we understand that it can be hard to keep up. Finding room for everything while taking care of a growing family can be tough but your friendly Holladay self storage location has some ideas to help you get started.

Store Seasonal Clothes

Having lots of kids means lots of clothes and finding the closet space can seem almost impossible. Try boxing up all seasonal items when not in use and putting into Holladay self storage. For example, box up all of your summer clothes this fall and put into storage until next spring. You’ll save lots of space by doing this.

Purchase Multi-use Furniture

Furniture can take up a lot of room, especially if you are living in a small home. Invest in multi-use furniture wherever you can. Some cribs double as changing tables. Some couches will double as a pull-out bed for guests. Some beds even have storage underneath. These types of furniture pieces will save you room and money.

Get Rid of What You Can

If a baby is on the way, now is the time to do a house-wide purge. Go through every room with your family and get rid of anything that you no longer use. If you haven’t used it in a year, you may not need it so toss it or donate to charity if in good condition. If you have clothes that your kids have outgrown, consider putting them into your Holladay self storage unit to save for your baby down the road.

Optimize Closet Space

Do you have room in your closets that is going unused? We recommend optimizing your closet space to fit as many items in it as you can. You can have extra clothing rods installed to make hanging up clothes a breeze. You can also purchase an over-the-door organizer for all baby clothing and other necessities.

 

We hope these tips help, if you need Holladay self storage, give us a call and we’ll help you find a unit that’s the right size for you.
