I would hate to have a job as furniture movers during the past few days. I am sure the amount of snowfall we have had is fairly minimal compared to alot of places, but it still makes a forty mile commute difficult. At least when I finally do make it to work, I get to sit in a nice toasty warm office.
Several people I know utilize mini storage units to keep their Christmas gifts in until the big day. My advice on this would be make sure the facility you store at will let you have access during the holiday. Most places close so that their employees can be with their families, so you might want to think about getting everything you need out a couple days in advance.
My coworkers and I were discussing moving companies , and what their busiest time of the year may be. It seems just about any time would be hectic, since no matter what is going on in the world, people will alway be in the process of relocation. Time waits for no man, so when the opportunity comes along, most people jump and go.
As soon as we opened today, we started getting calls from storage facilites on the east coast who were closing today because of all the snow they are getting. I know that here in the midwest our time for all of that is on the way. we could wake up anyday now to several inches of snow. That really makes the commute to work a good time.
My family fried our first turkey this past Thanksgiving, and it was a wild success. We are going to do it again for Christmas and try some Cajun seasonings. I wish we had known that we could save and reuse the expensive peanut oil by filtering it and keeping it in big storage containers .
One of my favorite coworkers was in the midst of making some more storage space in her home, and decided she would bring in some books for me to read. It has been a little slow at work, so something extra to do was much appreciated. It is pretty cool to work with thoughtful people like that.
When you sign up for a storage rental for the first time, be sure to know what your access hours are. These are the specific times you can be in your space. For security, most gates will automatically lock at a certain time. If you are unfortunate enough to have lost track of time while in your unit, it is possible you could get locked behind the gate.
Did you ever think you would end up having so many things that you would actually have to take out a second storage unit ? What most people do not know is that the more reputable facilities offer a second unit discount. So when you find yourself in need of even more space, be sure to ask about the possibility of saving money.
I get alot of calls from people who are shopping for self storage facilities for family members or friends of theirs. That is a really great thing to do for someone to help them out. Some people are even kind enough to use their own financial information to secure a space for whoever they are calling for. That is a good friend.
Today is my first day back to work after some considerable dentistry work. I was kind of nervous coming back after a week long absence, thinking maybe I had forgotten how to talk about storage . Once I got back into my cubicle and got my headset on, I started to feel much better. I hope I do not have to visit the dentist again anytime soon.
