6 SPRING CLEANING TIPS

6 SPRING CLEANING TIPS

6 SPRING CLEANING TIPS

Regardless of the weather outside, spring is upon us – and spring is synonymous with fresh starts. It’s time to get rid of those winter blues. So let’s get started with these 6 spring cleaning tips that will have your home in tip-top shape in no time.

1. Get rid of clutter.

Before you start preparing, get rid of items that are needlessly filling up your home. Step number one: Tackle those unwanted items.

Clothing: Toss the heavy outerwear and winter boots for lighter clothing and accessories. For clothes you will no longer need during spring, consider donating them to a local charity or placing them into seasonal storage.

Linens and décor: We recommend putting away heavier bedding and seasonal décor to help declutter and rid your home of the winter feel. Spring should be all about celebrating the sunshine.

2. Swap out seasonal gear.

Over the winter months, garages and basements become popular storage areas for grills, lawn mowers, sports equipment and patio furniture. With nice weather around the corner, it’s time to spruce up your curb appeal and get your garage back into shape.

Garage: Perhaps your garage has a area in one corner or a workshop in another. Now is the time to decide where you want to place those items and how you will organize them.

Welcome spring: Once you’ve decided on designated areas, it’s time to clean up and place your lawn mower, grill, patio furniture, gardening tools and other spring items back where they belong.

3. Time to clean: It’s a great time to rid your home of dirt, dust and other allergens and make it a refreshing atmosphere.

Wash curtains, windows, fixtures and other items that may often get ignored. Dust

down and wash any blinds, floorboards, window sills and corners. Great tip- Vacuum and flip your mattress over to provide even wear.

4. Maximize home storage.

As you begin spring cleaning, consider the space you already have in your home that you may not be taking advantage of. This will allow you to create (and keep) an organized space.

Open Shelving: As you clean your kitchen, bathroom, office spaces and more, look for existing spaces along the wall that may come in handy. Open wall shelves can create a light, refreshing look .You can keep your home organized, functional and bright – all while saving you space.

Think vertical: Use stackable storage and modular units for bedrooms and closet spaces.

Transform dead space into useable storage with shelves and baskets that can house everyday essentials. Maximize your space.

5. Make cleaning a routine. You might be surprised to find that we should be dusting and vacuuming every few days. We suggest staying on top of a cleaning schedule to help keep your home organized.

You’ll find yourself more relaxed and balanced when you are living in a tidy space. As we do in every part of life, we create a checklist for household tasks to keep the home looking beautiful and clean every day.

The more often you tackle chores like laundry, dusting and vacuuming, the less often you’ll have to do a thorough, tough clean.

6. Consider self storage: For seasonal belongings, oversized items, or accessories you haven’t yet found a home for, renting a storage unit can be a space-saving and easy way to store your things. For fragile items like wood, antiques or furniture, consider a climate controlled unit. It keeps items constant environment (temperatures between 55°F and 85°F). To ensure, our units are enclosed and, therefore, resist dust, pests and more.

CLEARING THE CLUTTER FOR THE NEW YEAR

CLEARING THE CLUTTER FOR THE NEW YEAR

CLEARING THE CLUTTER FOR THE NEW YEAR

Let’s get started on one of your New Year’s resolutions!  One that many homeowners may consider is cleaning and getting organized their homes in 2019. Decluttering your home can free up space, get rid of unnecessary items and help you find things you may have lost or forgotten about.

The Plan

Decluttering your home is a sizable task, and it can be a daunting one. That’s why it’s important to tackle this job with a plan. The Spruce suggested that, before you get started, you find 4 boxes or plastic bins. You’ll want to label them like so:

  • KEEP: you’ll put these items away later.
  • RECYCLE: paper, glass and plastic.
  • TRASH: some things you really shouldn’t keep.
  • DONATE: give away to family or friends, or to a charitable organization

Determine which rooms you want to tackle first. Perhaps you want to get the messiest and most disorganized room out of the way first, or maybe you want to start small and ramp up. Define

Now that you have a plan, you can determine how you’ll evaluate each item. Here are some tips:

MEDICATIONS

When going through your bathroom, kitchen or bedroom, you might come across medications and medicines you’ve acquired over the years. Ask yourself:

  • Is it expired?
  • Do I or my family members need this?
  • Has anyone used it in the past 6 months?

If no one uses that medicine, if it’s unnecessary and especially if it’s expired, call your doctor’s office or pharmacy for discard information.

CLOTHES

It’s easy to accumulate clothing that you don’t wear anymore. Our sense of style evolves over time, and you’ll outgrow some things. Other items may be gifted from well-meaning family members who simply don’t know your taste, or were purchased for a particular event that’s now passed. For each article of clothing, ask yourself:

  • Does it fit me?
  • Do I like the way I look in it?
  • Is it comfortable?
  • Have I worn it in the past year?

If it doesn’t fit, if you hate your reflection when you wear it, if it’s uncomfortable to wear or if you haven’t touched it in the past year, throw it in the donate box. If it’s falling apart or is otherwise unusable, put it in the trash bin.

ELECTRONICS

When you get a new gadget, it may be fun or convenient for a while, but over time it may get less and less use. Maybe it’s a device that you’ve replaced with a new model, or perhaps it didn’t fit into your daily routine well. Either way, you’ll need to evaluate the necessity of your old electronics. For each piece, ask yourself:

  • Does it work?
  • Do I like it?
  • Does it make my life easier?
  • Have I used it in the past year?

If it doesn’t work, you’ll need to decide if you can fix it yourself, if it’s worth paying for a professional repair, or if it’s better off trashed. If it’s still functional, determine whether it makes your life easier in any way, or if you like to use it. If you don’t really like to use it, haven’t used it in the past year or it’s cumbersome to use, you may consider donating it.

Identify storage locations

Through your decluttering efforts, you’ll end up getting rid of some things and determining others are better off in storage. But, if your attic, basement and garage are already full, or you don’t want to move stuff to these areas, you might consider looking outside your home. A storage unit can help immensely. You can house the items you need only a few times a year here, where they’re easily accessible yet out of the way.

Slow-Cooker Cinnamon Roll Casserole

Slow-Cooker Cinnamon Roll Casserole

Slow-Cooker Cinnamon Roll Casserole

Introducing the sweetest way to kick off a weekend breakfast or casual holiday brunch. Rich, sugary, and gooey, this crowd-pleasing recipe (serves twelve hungry guests!), is extra sweet because it’s made in the slow cooker. Like other one-pot dishes, the limited hands-on time (here, it’s just 20 minutes) will allow you to spend more time on doing things you love with the people who mean the most. Prepare for a delicious casserole that’s made for breakfast, brunch, or anytime snacking.

Ingredients

Cooking spray
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 (16.3-oz.) cans refrigerated southern homestyle biscuits (such as Pillsbury Grands! Southern Homestyle), biscuits separated and cut into fourths (about 64 biscuit pieces total)
1/2 cup (4 oz.) salted butter, melted, plus 2 Tbsp. butter, softened, divided
4 large eggs
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
2/3 cup plus 2 to 3 Tbsp. half-and-half, divided
2 teaspoon vanilla extract, divided
1/2 cup chopped toasted pecans
1 (3-oz.) pkg. cream cheese softened
2 1/4 cups (about 9 oz.) powdered sugar, divided

 

 

How to Make It

Step 1

Line bottom and sides of a 6-quart slow cooker with aluminum foil; lightly coat foil with cooking spray. Stir together granulated sugar, brown sugar, and cinnamon in a small bowl. Toss together biscuit pieces and 1/2 cup melted butter in a large bowl until biscuits are coated.

Step 2

Working in batches, add biscuits to granulated sugar mixture, and toss to coat; transfer biscuits to prepared slow cooker. Sprinkle any remaining sugar mixture over biscuits in slow cooker.

Step 3

Whisk together eggs, salt, 2/3 cup of the half-and-half, and 1 teaspoon of the vanilla in a bowl until well combined; pour over biscuits in slow cooker. Sprinkle with pecans.

Step 4

Beat cream cheese and 2 tablespoons softened butter with an electric mixer on medium speed until thoroughly combined, about 30 seconds. Add 1 cup of the powdered sugar and remaining 1 teaspoon vanilla; beat until smooth, about 1 minute.

Step 5

Gradually add remaining 1 1/4 cups powdered sugar to cream cheese mixture alternately with 2 tablespoons of the half-and-half, beating on high speed until frosting is smooth, creamy, and a little loose, about 1 minute, adding remaining 1 tablespoon half-and-half, 1 teaspoon at a time, if needed to reach desired consistency.

Step 6

Drizzle half of the frosting over biscuit mixture in slow cooker. (Cover remaining frosting, and set aside until ready to serve.) Cover slow cooker; cook on LOW until center of casserole is set and biscuit bottoms are browned, 3 1/2 to 4 hours. Drizzle casserole with remaining frosting; serve warm.

WINE STORE TIPS FOR BEGINNERS

WINE STORE TIPS FOR BEGINNERS

WINE STORE TIPS FOR BEGINNERS

 Wine sales have been steadily growing for the past few years, and are expected to continue to grow around two to four percent in 2019 (source: Bloomberg). With more people drinking wine than ever before, there is also and increasing interest in becoming a wine collector. While it may seem like a simple and fun hobby, there are actually a lot of important things to know before jumping into wine collecting. By learning the basic facts and best practices first, you can then begin to collect and properly store your wine.

Start with these general tips when you start your collection:

  • Buy what interests you. The higher the price tag doesn’t necessarily mean it’s the best or right bottle for you. There are a lot of factors to consider like the age of the wine, the vintage, the vineyard, reviewers’ comments and who might have owned the bottle in the past.
  • Start small, and build your collection. Remember, it takes time to build up a collection. Think about what kinds of bottles will add monetary value and what kinds of wine are personally valuable to you. Do you prefer wine from a specific region or country, or would you rather collect bottles based the stories behind them? It’s all preference.
  • Wine bottles can come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Don’t let unique bottles turn you off because you’re not sure how or where to store them; they can add something different to your collection. There are many different accommodating storage options for wide, tall and champagne bottle styles. There’re several bottle closure bottle options. Natural corks, synthetic corks and screw caps all have different effects on wine.
  • Documenting your collection is important. You should not only save records of your initial purchase so you have proof of value, but also organize your wines properly and create a catalog. The bigger your collection gets, the more you’ll appreciate having an organized reference guide of inventory for easy access.
  • Proper storage. Wine is sensitive to a number of factors, including temperature and humidity, light and vibration. If not stored properly, these conditions can cause wine to spoil. The ideal temperature for wine storage is 55-57 F, with humidity between 55-85%. To ensure that your wine remains at the proper conditions, consider storing your collection at an off-site wine cellar.

To Wine, or Wine Not?

Collecting wine can be an exciting hobby, with many different personal purchase factors. Whether you find excitement in owning a piece of history, or prefer to have bottles from around the world to enjoy at your leisure, a wine collection is something that evolves over time, and is an investment worth preserving properly.

3 Tips for Moving in the Rain

3 Tips for Moving in the Rain

3 Tips for Moving in the Rain

It’s moving day. Everything is packed, the rental truck is parked outside, and despite your prayers for sunshine the weather forecast is coming true—a storm is brewing, prompting worries of soaked boxes and ruined furniture. But moving in bad weather doesn’t have to be a nightmare. If you have to move when it’s raining, snowing or windy, follow these tips to protect belongings (and your sanity).

 

Get Tarps & Shrink Wrap
If you plan on hiring movers or even if you don’t it’s always good to have a couple tarps handy when moving in the rain. This will provide for protection for larger pieces of furniture when placed in the lawn or on the sidewalk when movers are organizing the load in the truck. If you plan on moving on your own it goes without saying that we recommend using tarps. Shrink wrapping electronic equipment and sensitive items is highly recommended for transport in general but it makes for additional protection against rain. Shrink wrapping also provides additional stability when packing loose objects or difficult to pack belongings.

 

Protect the Point of Entry
Chances are you protected the doorway and passageways in the house your leaving so it makes sense to prepare for wet conditions in the new house. Protect the entryway with a mat, towels or even plastic wrap so that everyone coming in and out can wipe their feet. Laying down some plastic for a protected passageway will increase the speed and efficiency of the move while protecting your rug and floors as well. Depending on the layout of the new home it could be best to place all boxes and furniture in one or two landing rooms until all possessions are moved inside.

 

Create an Assembly Line

Designate teams to work as indoor and outdoor crews. This prevents mud from being tracked inside and makes the entire process flow more quickly.

 

Wear Slip Resistant Shoes         
To keep your move as safe as possible, when moving in the rain we highly recommend wearing slip-resistant shoes. No one wants to slip in the mud on moving day, especially if you’re carrying some precious keepsakes. We strongly recommend extra care when coming up and down the ramp of lift-gate as they can become extremely slippery when wet. Depending on the time of your move you may need to have some rock-salt handy to eliminate any slippery sections on the walkway or stairs. With temperatures dropping we recommend that you plan ahead and plan safely.

3 Ways To Keep Your Storage Rental Organized!

3 Ways To Keep Your Storage Rental Organized!

3 Ways To Keep Your Storage Rental Organized!

One of the main reasons to get a storage unit is to help declutter your home. But what happens when your storage unit becomes the new cluttered mess in your life? We hope these tips below will help you to keep your storage unit organized so you can easily find what you are looking for.

 

Take Photos

Before coming to your self-storage unit, take an inventory of everything you plan to keep in the unit. Although a written list can be helpful, keeping a digital photo album of all items will make it easy for you to do some quick investigative work from home before driving out to your storage unit.

 

Label Label Label!

Storage units are most easily kept organized when everything is in uniform cardboard boxes or plastic containers. Thorough labeling is extremely important. Use a thick black marker to mark every box with its contents. Stack everything with the label facing out to minimize the search process later on.

 

Draw A Map

It’s a good idea to group your boxes according to their contents. Before you leave, draw a basic floor plan of your handiwork so you know exactly what corner of your storage rental to head to the next time you need something.

If you find that you need to upgrade your storage unit or downsize, please call our office. We make renting easy!

Storage Tips For The Fall

Storage Tips For The Fall

Storage Tips For The Fall

Spring isn’t the only season to get organized; autumn is a perfect time to de-clutter your home and get things in order for the colder months. As much as we try to keep things in order after the spring-cleaning season, there’s always a list of things to prepare for the next season. Soon the days will be getting shorter, now is a great time to use the extra time you have indoors to organize your home? To get you started, check out our favorite fall home preparation tips below. You can free up valuable storage space—both inside and out—and get set for a clutter-free winter.    

Swap Out the Seasonal Stuff

One simple way to free up closet space and dressers is to swap out your spring and summer wardrobe for fall and winter. Now is the time to take the opportunity to sort through your items, and decide if it’s time to give them away or store them for the next season.  Don’t forget the coat closet and the mudroom!   Storage Tip: Pack clothing away in plastic bins or containers to avoid dust, moisture, and bugs.

Organize Your Outdoor Living Area

There are a number of outdoor things that need your attention before the cold comes. Harsh weather can damage wood, wicker or aluminum, so pay extra attention to your porch, patio or deck furniture at summer’s end. A 10’x10’ unit is great for storing outdoor yards maintenance items – like garden tools, outdoor power equipment, and lawnmowers. These can take up valuable space in a garage that you might need for shovels, snow blowers, salt or other winter items.   Storage Tip: Clean before storing to prevent rust and damage. For added protection, we have climate-controlled units!

Your Car Wants the Garage Back

It’s common to turn to your garage for storage of your summer items. A storage unit is a perfect place to store bikes, pool equipment, gardening tools, patio furniture. Having these items out of the way, you’ll save a significant amount of space for your car and other winter necessities. You can thank us later.    

Storage For All Seasons

Each season gives us an opportunity to reorganize our home and prepare for the next. While you can utilize a self-storage unit at any time of the year, the harsh weather of winter makes it especially important to protect your belongings and be prepared.

Hiring a Moving Company vs. Renting a Moving Truck

Hiring a Moving Company vs. Renting a Moving Truck

Hiring a Moving Company vs. Renting a Moving Truck

Are you thinking about hiring movers to help with your move? You’re not alone. When it comes to something as stressful as moving, hiring help can seem like a smart solution. But, is hiring a mover the best solution for you? In this post, we break down the benefits of hiring movers verse the benefits of a DIY move.

The Benefits of a DIY Move

There are many benefits of doing a DIY move. Below, we’ve listed a few benefits of doing a DIY move as opposed to hiring movers.

1.         Total Control: In our opinion, the greatest pro to a DIY move is the fact that you are in complete control over the entire moving process. Not only do you get to choose the truck and all of your moving supplies, but you also can handle all the boxes yourself to ensure that nothing breaks in the process. Committing to a DIY move means that you have the flexibility to decide when to begin the move and when to end the move. If you’re moving in bad weather, you get to decide how best to protect your belongings. You’re also in control of how to load the truck, and you don’t have to worry about movers dumping boxes and furniture in rooms they don’t belong.

2.         Cheaper: Hiring movers can be expensive. Many movers will either charge hourly rates or quote you half of the move before it happens. When you move yourself, your moving expenses can drastically decrease.

3.         Help: Moving and packing is labor-intensive, so if you decide against hiring a moving company you’ll need some help. This means calling in lots of favors from friends and relatives. If you don’t have too many belongings and nothing particularly valuable or fragile to move your friends might well suffice. If you do have a considerable inventory to transport and some of it is quite valuable or irreplaceable, think twice. Good friends are not necessarily experienced movers and are most always not insured for damages that may incur during a move. If your best friends drop your flat screen TV, will you sue them for compensation? Not likely!

 

The Benefits of Hiring Movers

There are also many benefits of hiring movers. Below, you will find three benefits of hiring movers as opposed to doing a DIY move.

1.        Movers are Experienced: Hopefully, you have only moved a handful of times. Even though it probably isn’t your first move, unexpected problems always pop up that you will not have had experience with. A moving company can help you’re your move and have dealt with every roadblock out there.

2.        Less Stress: It’s common to rely on the help from family and friends during a move. When you hire movers, you won’t have to ask for much, if any, help from family and friends.

3.        Reduce the Risk of Injury: Movers have been trained on how to avoid injuring themselves during a move. Without the right tools and experience, it would be easy to injure yourself during a move.

Do You have to Move Out of Your Old Home Before the New Home is Ready?

It isn’t uncommon to have to move out of your old home before your new home is ready. So where do you put all of your items until your new home is ready? Whether you chose to do a DIY move or hire movers, a self-storage unit can be a solution for you. Lincoln Self Storage offers long-term or short-term rental solutions. Our storage facility has both standard and storage units that can control the climate ranging in various sizes. Contact us to rent a storage unit today!

First Time Renting a Storage

First Time Renting a Storage

FIRST TIME RENTING A STORAGE

Renting a storage unit for the first time isn’t as daunting as it may initially seem. In fact, depending upon the self-storage company, it can be quite easy.  Additionally, if you are prepared with some questions and you have done your research, the rental process can be even smoother. Lincoln Self Storage offers a variety of storage options such as standard units, climate controlled storage units, and vehicle storage. Knowing ahead what you want to store, how long you will need to store, and how much space you need to store your items, will make the renting process easier. Check out our top tips below.

Top Tips for Your First Time Renting a Storage Unit

  1. Decide What You Want to Store: We understand things will come up throughout your storage rental, it is good to have an idea of what you are looking to store. The cost of a storage unit will vary with the size of the space you need. Knowing how much you want to store and using our storage unit calculator to help determine the best size for your storage needs.
  2. What Kind of Storage You Need: If you are storing more sensitive items, like leather or wooden furniture, electronics, artwork, documents, and collectibles, it is important to utilize a climate controlled storage unit. Our climate controlled storage units are there to protect your belongings from dangerous fluctuations in temperature.
  3. Have the Proper ID: When you rent a storage unit, the storage facility will require certain documents. These documents may include a valid photo ID, current contact information, and valid insurance if you are storing a car, boat or motorcycle.
  4. Know How to Pack Your Items: When placing items in your storage unit, organize them so there is an aisle down the middle to the back of the storage unit. This will allow you to navigate the space more efficiently. Place large appliances and electronics towards the back. Put frequently needed items toward the front of the storage unit for easy access. Depending on the length of your rental, it’s always a good idea to check on the items in your storage unit every few months to make sure nothing has shifted in those particularly packed units. That would also be a good time to rotate any seasonal items from the back to the front of the storage unit.
  5. Prepare Your Items for Storage: You are renting the storage unit to keep your items safe. So, it is important to take your time and properly prepare your items for storage before they are moved into the storage unit.
  6. Know What Can and Can Not be Stored: In order to get the most out of your storage unit rental, it is important to know what you can and cannot store inside your space. There are several items that are prohibited from being stored in a stored. Check out our blog on what NOT to store. It is essential to abide by these rules to ensure the safety of you, your contents, other people and the facility.
  7. Understand the Move Out Policy: It is important to understand the move out policy before your rental. We require a 10-day written notice before you move out.

By using these self-storage tips, you will save much frustration when you return to retrieve something from your rental. We’re here to help! Call our friendly, professional staff at 704-735-6364. We can help you choose the right option for all your storage needs.
