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.

MOVING IN TOGETHER?

MOVING IN TOGETHER?

MOVING IN TOGETHER?

Moving in together is a huge step in any relationship. A little extra planning can go a long way in a smooth transition. To prevent undue stress on yourself or your relationship, take the proper precautions to ensure you are prepared for this next step. This helpful list for moving in together should help you get organized. To make things easier, we created the checklist below and divided it up by time.

3 MONTHS OUT

Discuss who will pay for what. Know in advance how much each party is able to contribute financially and any bills they will be adding.
Prepare your financial documents. Gather bank statements, pay stubs, proof of employment and landlord reference letters. Having all of this documentation on hand will make rental applications easier.
Make a list of what you have, what you need and what you need to store. Taking the time to write these lists will save you time and money in the long run. Be sure to give yourself plenty of time for this task. Storage is always an option for the couch or armoire you can’t part with, but don’t have room for. We make renting storage easy, call us today.
Divide up responsibilities. The benefit of moving in with your partner is that you don’t have to sort it all out on your own! Decide who is best at what and disperse the stress a little.

1 MONTH OUT

Sign the lease. When this needs to happen depends on the real estate market in your community, but give yourself plenty of time to find the perfect place.
Take measurements. Measure both of your furniture items and the new home to make sure everything you have will fit. This also helps when planning additional purchases.
Rent a moving van or hire a mover.  If you plan on moving yourself, make sure you have the tools to make it successful.
Buy plenty of boxes. Use the list you created of what you have to assess how many boxes you will need and then add a few extra. Not sure what kind of boxes you’ll need?
Purchase packing supplies. If you have valuable art or delicate china, make sure you have the appropriate materials to move it safely. Stop by our office for packing supplies and covers.
Take the day off.  Do yourself a favor and use it for moving day. You can thank us later.

1 WEEK OUT

Transition all of your bills to your new home. Inform your service providers you are moving and make sure your partner does the same.
Begin packing boxes as far in advance as you can. Be strategic when you are packing to avoid chaos once you start to unpack.
Label everything. Label Label Label. We can’t say it enough.  You will be combining  the possessions of two people, this step is extra important.
Clear the fridge. Avoid grocery shopping this close to your move date. Time to start  clearing your cabinets, freezer and fridge of any perishable goods.
Pack a overnight bag. Packing a change of clothes and toiletries in case you don’t have time to get the essentials unpacked on moving day can be a lifesaver.
Put in a change of address.. This allows mail to be forwarded to the proper place.
MOVING DAY

Wrap glass tables or large electronics in towels or sheets. Avoid damaging your possessions in the move by ensuring they are as protected as possible.
Keep each room’s boxes together. Make sure your living room items stay together and your bathroom items are all in the same place. This will expedite the unpacking process and makes emptying the moving van easier.
Wear appropriate clothes.
Your wear during moving day may seem unessential to you, but do not underestimate it. Put on comfortable clothes, because it will be a really long day. Also, to protect yourself from any injures, avoid clothes and shoes with ties. Loose-fitted clothes are more likely to cause troubles too. If you are performing a long distance trip, take into consideration that there might be a weather drop. In this case you will need to change clothes during the trip, so keep a pair of clean clothes with you just in case.
Above all, don’t overdo it. To avoid feeling overwhelmed, make moving your sole task for the day. Keep your cell phones charged. Stay hydrated, pack snacks, and take short breaks when you need them. Moving day might be hectic, but if you’re prepared, you can help it go off without a hitch.

Tips for Moving with Pets

Tips for Moving with Pets

Tips for Moving with Pets

It’s often said that moving is one of the most stressful things that will happen to a person in their lifetime. The same can be said for your pet. Animals often have a hard time with the travels to a new location, and then with adjusting upon arrival. Here are some tips for moving with pets before, during, and after the move itself. This will help you and your pet stay stress-free during your move.

Pre-Move

Get a tight new collar and an updated tag with easy-to-read name and number. If you’re moving out of the area, inform your vet so you can take records and any prescription medications with you. See if they can recommend another vet in your new neighborhood.

During Move

During the move itself, the best way to reduce stress on an animal is to keep them in the quietest area possible. If you don’t want to leave them with a friend or a kennel for the day (which is recommended), at least remove them from the action. This could mean emptying a bedroom on another floor and closing the door, or putting them in their carrier or kennel in the garage or car (take proper caution to ensure they’ll be at a safe temperature and that they have water and food if they will be there for some time). Make sure you check in on them regularly, and try to feed or walk them at the time you usually would; having some sense of a routine in the midst of all the changes will help a lot.

Post-Move

Find a new clinic right away so you know where to go for any emergencies.

Start your new routine (such as morning walks, meal time, etc.) right away so pet can feel comfortable in new place quickly. Before unpacking your own stuff, lay out pet essentials so that s/he has some familiar items in the strange new house.

Hidden Hazards

Not all moves can be made in one day. If you must stop for the night, call ahead to hotels that claim to be pet-friendly. Don’t take a hotel chain’s word for it. Call the actual hotel and verify what their pet policies are. Many pet-friendly hotels have a limited number of rooms available for people with pets, or will only allow small dogs and cats. Keep in mind, there are opportunities for your pet to escape easily. In the hotel room, look around for any dangers, such as open windows or holes in the wall, before letting your pet out of the carrier. Remember to keep your pet on his leash when exiting the hotel.

It’s not easy to move with animals, but it’s part of the obligation you have to them. With forethought and planning, there is no reason why moving to a new home cannot be accomplished with a minimum of stress—for both you and your companions.

GET ORGANIZED

GET ORGANIZED

The New Year is here and like many people, you probably made some New Year’s Resolutions. Right up there with losing weight and cutting back on soft drinks, getting organized is a top priority. Did you know that a storage unit can easily help you keep this New Year’s Resolution?

Think about it… over the last 365 day your closets and garage have become dumping grounds for unused clothes, exercise equipment and boxes of unknown things. You may not want to get rid of these items.  That’s why renting with us can be so helpful.

How do I choose a self-storage unit?

Before you decide on the type and size of the storage unit, you will need to take an inventory of what you will be storing. If you only need to make room in your closets, a mini storage unit will probably do the trick. These units are about the size of a walk-in closet and are perfect for clothes, small appliances, and other knick-knacks.

If you are cleaning out the garage and have old furniture, bicycles, exercise equipment and other bulky items you should consider a larger unit. Using our online calculator will help you determine the amount of space you need.

A climate controlled unit is an option if you are storing electronics, antiques or leather furniture. These types of units will prevent condensation and corrosion from forming due to wide temperature swings.


Do I need a storage unit for my business?

Businesses of all sizes can utilize self-storage units to kick off the New Year. Over the past year, your business will have generated hundreds, if not thousands, of files that need to be stored away. Everything from inter-office memos to customer contracts to tax documents needs to have a place to stay. Some of these files, like tax and legal documents, need to be kept for years. Using a climate controlled unit for your document storage is a cost-effective way keep them safe and secure and free up some much-needed office space.

Self-storage units are also a great place to store surplus office supplies and bulky equipment that you do not use on a daily basis. By keeping these items in a central location outside of the business, you can free up some space and give things a fresh organized look.

Live Life and Explore!

Whether you are in your early 20s or late 50s, many people make a resolution every year that they are going to live life to the fullest. They decide they are going to abandon their job or their life at home and go explore the world. Unless you intend to keep paying rent on an apartment for months while you’re away, you may want to consider packing your things into a storage unit to allow you to travel lightly—the best idea when traveling the world.

Maybe a storage unit can’t help you with each resolution, but if you ever find yourself thinking, “Oh if I only had space,” a storage unit is probably your answer.

Making Moving Fun

Making Moving Fun

The words “fun” and “moving” rarely go together because let’s be honest: moving is stressful. While we can’t promise you’ll feel like you just got back from the spa, we do think you’ll at least feel less stressful. Here are our best tips for making your next move dare we say it — fun!

 

Make a Packing and Unpacking Playlist:
This tip might seem a bit silly, but it works! Create two playlists that you can use for your move: a packing playlist and an unpacking playlist. For my packing playlist, focus on peppy music to keep motivated. And for the unpacking playlist, choosing songs that were a bit more relaxing but still had some pow. There’s something psychological that happens in your brain when you go through this process with playlists that you have designated for these two tasks. It could make you kick into gear way easier than normal when you hear your “packing playlist.”

Focus on Easy Peasy:
When you’re working on packing things up, look for every opportunity to make your life easier. Here are a few of our favorite tips:

If you have furniture like dressers filled up with clothes, leave the clothes in there rather than taking everything out and packing it separately. Your movers can wrap up your dresser and ensure none of the drawers move. When you get to your new place, you’ll know exactly where everything is!
For clothes that are already on hangers in your closet, leave them on the hangers. Rather than giving that stuff to your movers, you can move the items yourself and just transfer them right into your new closet. Make sure when you stack up your items, you leave them in the same order they were in (if you like how they were organized). This will minimize your work even more.
If your flatware, kitchen utensils, and other items are already in drawer organizers, leave them in the organizers and pack them that way. When you get to your new home, you can take them directly out of the box and just pop them right into a drawer. If you’re not using organizers and you’d like to, now is an awesome time to do it. Purchase some organizers that you know will work in your new space and pack your kitchen stuff in them before you put them in the box.

Smaller Boxes Are Your Friend:
Bankers Boxes are great! You don’t need tape to put them together, they’re small and easily manageable, and they stack up perfectly. However, you don’t necessarily need to use Bankers Boxes — just try going with boxes that are a bit on the smaller side. Sometimes you do need larger boxes, but maybe just a few. And even though you may have more boxes in total, you’ll still be happier in the end. You can also pack and unpack smaller boxes much quicker, as well as easily move them around as you’re going through the unpacking process. Unpacking the smaller boxes feels like your experiencing quick little wins, and that really could keep you motivated.

Use an App:
If organizing is not necessarily your favorite thing, then download a moving app like Moving Van. This app will help you track exactly what’s in each box, allowing you to snap pictures as you fill up your boxes. It also has a super handy search function, so when you’re at your new place wondering “where did I pack my design coffee table book collection,” you can search for the items and figure out exactly which box they were packed in.

Eat Some Junk Food:
Yes, we said it! For those that are lucky enough to have a group of friends that help out on your moving day, make sure you plan ahead with a setup that will make them want to put you straight into the BFF category. Our idea? Set up a junk food bar. Stock up on all the snacks that you know you shouldn’t be eating but love to anyway: chips, chocolate bars, gummy candy, cookies, etc. Put it all out during the move and encourage everyone to help themselves. If you want to get fancy and have some time before the move, you can whip up your own junk food buffet.

Create a Super Important Box:
In our opinion, is mission critical? As you’re packing up your space, make sure you have a box (or a piece of luggage) for all of your most important items. Think outfits for a few days, exercise gear, your fave shoes, toiletries, important docs, checkbook, food for your pet, medication, etc. Basically, all of the things that you’ll need as soon as you get to your new home. If you can’t fit everything in one box or one piece of luggage, pack two! Just make sure you clearly mark these super duper important boxes so that you don’t lose track of them on the move.

Set Up a Bribe Reward:
This is another tip that may really for you: Set up a personal bribe goal for yourself. Here’s how it works: Agree that if you could unpack all of the boxes in one week, you could make an appointment for a 90-minute facial or take a night off and see a movie. Working toward this special treat could actually really help keep you motivated. Tell your friends/family about your goal. They can remind you of your goal and make it fun to help meet your deadline. You could even offer a friend to join you.

The biggest thing to remember is:

Do whatever works for you!! Moving can be super stressful, so when you figure out the moving tricks that work best for you, do more of them and ditch the rest. Then you o can do the moving happy dance.

Tips for Moving Your Elderly Loved One

Tips for Moving Your Elderly Loved One

Tips for Moving Your Elderly Loved One

If you have a parent who’s lived happily in a spacious home for years, there will probably come a time when a change in living arrangements is in needed. You might notice your parent has a hard time keeping up with household maintenance. A small fall—even if it doesn’t result in an injury—could be a sign that a new living situation would improve safety.

Moving an aging parent requires more than just packing up boxes. There are both physical and emotional aspects of transitioning to a new home as we age that must be addressed carefully. Aging parents may find it difficult to leave their home, or to go to a situation where some independence could be lost. In addition, you may be having to sell, give away or store items. A storage facility may prove to be a good answer to temporarily store your parents items.

Here are six guidelines to help the transition go smoothly.

1. Communication and Choice

Seniors can be emotionally vested in the home they’re leaving, and it’s expected that there will be sadness and apprehension about the move. It can be a tough conversation to have with your aging parent, but give them time to grieve the change and talk about where they will be living and why they are moving, in order to help make the transition smoother. When seniors are asked to leave their longtime homes, a frequent cause of distress is their perceived loss of control, so give your loved one as much choice as possible as they plan and implement the move.

2. Find the Right Place.

Before making any decisions, you’ll want to look into the assisted living facilities or retirement communities in whichever areas are under consideration. Many assisted living facilities will set an appointment with you for a tour of the facility and to stay for lunch. If possible, encourage your parent to go along for the visit.

Be sure to check out amenities and services that each facility offers.

3. Sort and Organize

Moving your elderly parents will involve downsizing. Go through the house item by item with your support team. You can categorize objects to make the process easier: items to be moved, keepsakes to be left with family, items to be sold or donated, and items to be thrown out. Don’t allow yourself to become a packing robot lacking feelings. Honor the emotional attachment to personal belongings and allow your senior parent to reminisce as you help sort out their possessions. Remember, these are not just things you’re moving; they’re memories. Also, be open to your own emotions, especially if this was your childhood home.

4. Create a Meaningful Space.

For seniors moving to an apartment, try to model it after their home. If your parent has a favorite room or living area, bring the furniture from it and try to arrange it in a similar way. This is also a great time to ask your parent about meaningful things to take along. It could be a special photo, a favorite chair, or a vase that’s been in the family for years.

5. Schedule the Move at the Right Time.

If you’re moving your parent to a place with other residents,  keep in mind that people who already live there could be disturbed by the noisiness of boxes and heavy furniture being carried in. Aim to move your parent into an assisted living or apartment at a quieter time of day. If possible, avoid moving in during meal times.

6. Envision the New Life.

Various programs and activities at the new place might align with your parent’s interests. Encourage them to get a calendar and join in on some activities or see a musical program that they would love.  Also, other services could boost your parent’s independence. For instance, many assisted living facilities to provide transportation to theaters and shopping centers. These services can help your parent more fully enjoy living in his or her new place.

Of course, each family’s circumstances are unique, so we’re hesitant to give blanket advice — but we hope these tips help you better plan and execute your elder loved one’s next move.

MOVING IN THE SUMMER

MOVING IN THE SUMMER

MOVING IN THE SUMMER

For millions of Americans, summer is the best time to move – the kids are out of school, the weather is nice, and the home buying season is at its peak. In fact, 11 to 13 percent of all moves occur during summer months as compared to eight percent or less during the other months of the year. Moving can be a very stressful and chaotic experience for a lot of people, especially if you’re moving a family or if you’re a new homeowner. Here at Lincoln Self Storage, we understand the ins and outs of moving. By providing you with a few helpful tips, we hope to make the process of moving during the summer as stress-free as possible.

4 weeks from move date
Get organized and start notifying the right people and companies that you’ll be moving soon and give them a date to forward to terminate services. Start looking for licensed and professional moving companies, storage facilities and moving guides.

If using a professional mover, get quotes from several companies to get the best deal that is right for you and your needs. Make sure you ask plenty of questions like whether or not they give binding quotes and what kind of insurance is included. Be sure to talk with them about all the different options available.

Make sure important documents such as your child’s school records or medical records are accessible during your transition. Make sure to put these items aside and make copies of any records for yourself, in case you forget what box they’re packed in.

Fill out the change of address forms for creditors, doctors, and personal providers. Schedule account closings for trash removal, gardeners, pest control, etc., and transfer utilities or other services that’ll go with you.

3 weeks from move date
Whether or not you’ve selected a mover, begin by taking inventory of your belongings and decide what will be coming with you to your next home or to storage.

Start cleaning out closets, drawers and storage areas of your home and divide things into categories: “pack”, “recycle”, and “donate”. You can always have a garage sale. This will make packing day a lot easier and you may reduce the total amount of items you’ll be moving.

If possible, take pictures of rooms and areas inside your home or apartment you’ll be moving into so you can start thinking about placement of furniture, artwork, and other items. This will help save time, headaches…and stress on moving day.

2 weeks from the move date
Rent a truck. Start packing things into boxes. Label those boxes! Figure out the logistics of the move, travel plans and if other specialized plans need to be made.

If you are moving long distance, remember travel arrangements for your pets. If you have young children, you may want to make childcare arrangements so you can be 100% focused on moving day. If not, make sure the little ones have snacks, remain safe and busy with fun activities.

Plan and make time for “move out” cleaning. Whether hiring help or doing it yourself, carpet cleaners and heavy appliance cleaning is a nice welcome for buyers to move into a clean and tidy home.

1 week from move date
Set aside valuable items and keep those with you. Make sure the details for paying for everything is taken care of. Some will require a money order or cashier’s checks upon delivery; it’s good to know their policy in advance to avoid stress on moving day.

Time to cook and eat all the frozen foods you have, or give them to a neighbor or friend. This way you won’t have to throw them away on moving day or worry about packing an ice chest.

Place necessities such as toiletries, toilet paper, rags, and must have cooking supplies. Organize them in boxes marked “open first” so it’s easy to find these items you’ll want handy on those first few days of being in your next home. Good tip: Don’t forget a flashlight!!

Take a tour of the new location to identify water and gas shut off locations, as well as the electrical breaker box just in case something happens in the first few days so you’re prepared. Might be smart to keep some light bulbs on hand too!

Moving day- Keep your cool!
Moving in the early morning or evening is a great way to take advantage of the lower temperatures.

Protect yourself from the heat. Don’t forget to use sunscreen lotions as well as wearing loose, light-colored clothing to avoid the risk of overheating.

Hydrate and keep yourself nourished by drinking cold water or beverages with electrolytes as well as snacks that are non-perishable. Granola, fruit bars, and mixed nuts are solid options that will keep your energy up.

Because it’s hot out, be aware of what things shouldn’t be put into the moving truck. Candles will melt, leather furniture will “sweat” if wrapped in plastic; use a pad instead. CD’s, videos and cassette tapes can warp in a hot truck.

Think about air-conditioning at both ends of the move. The doors to your home will be open for extended periods of time and the temperature inside will reflect the temp outside. Remember that you will have an increased bill if your air runs for hours on end. Be sure that the air is on in the new home because it’s going to be hot there too.

Know the symptoms of overheating. It is common knowledge that high temperatures can be disastrous but, this can be avoided if you can be able to spot the symptoms from a distance. You will have quite a number of people under your care including the movers. If you can spot heat-related illnesses well before they get out of hand, you can potentially save a life. Don’t forget to protect yourself with a pair of sunglasses for your eyes and good quality sunscreen.

There are always challenges that with every move. With these tips, you’ll be in a better position to prepare better and more thoroughly for challenges.

TOYS TOYS TOYS!!

TOYS TOYS TOYS!!

How many of you feel as though you have had all rooms of your home completely taken over by your kid’s toys? The toys are scattered everywhere! Their bedroom, living room, basement, kitchen and even your room! Sometimes you may feel like there is no hope, that with every passing holiday and birthday, more and more toys keep accumulating in your home. We all reach that breaking point when it comes down to just wanting to throw out all of their toys and it’s usually right after stepping on a few Lego pieces….and that HURTS!
 
The first step to tackling this problem is setting some ground rules. Have a talk with your kids and let them know that they have to start picking up after themselves. Make it a rule that whenever they pick up a toy, they have to put it back after they are done. If they don’t follow that rule, the toy gets taken away for one day. By setting those ground rules, it gives the kids something to follow.
 
The next step to tackling this is getting organized. Sit down with your kids and have them pick out toys they no longer play with. Get a garbage bag and sort out the toys as ones to donate, ones to put in your storage unit and ones to throw away. Once you have the remaining toy pile at a reasonable size, start thinking about other ways to keep it all organized.
 
There are many great ideas for staying organized is by using storage bins and bookshelves. Try keeping the storage in only two rooms of the house, such as their bedroom and living room. This should potentially limit the number of other rooms that will be affected by the toy clutter plague. Keep toys, games, stuffed animals etc. in specific bins so they are easier to find and put away.
 
We hope these tips help you combat the toy clutter plague!
