No matter how your family celebrates the season, there's a good chance your home is crowded during the holidays, with many packages shrouded in secrecy. You have endless boxes of decorations, countless boxes to wrap, and lots of things to keep under wraps, all of which may be impossible to do from within your home and surrounded by prying eyes. That's why the smartest Secret Santas use self-storage, for the holidays and beyond, and why you should too.
1. It's The Best Place To Hide Secret Gifts
Are you tired of the kids finding your hiding spaces around the house? Do they shake everything, trying to figure out what you bought them? Maybe you simply don't have the closet space to store all those different size packages, without displacing everything you already own. Keeping secrets safe is a challenge during the holidays, but not when you have your own private place under lock-and-key; not when there's a little hideaway that only you know about and only you have access to.
2. Self-Storage Is A Convenient Place To Wrap
Do you have to wait until you're the only one home to wrap presents? Maybe you have to stay up until after the kids (and your spouse) have gone to sleep, making the day extra-long for you. Wrapping is a tedious task, best done under relaxed circumstances, not when you're half-awake or cowering in a dark corner, trying to keep your gifts a surprise. Why not rent a storage unit with heating and lighting, and bring a folding chair? You can take your time, wrapping everything perfectly just the way you always want to, but never seem to have the time or patience to accomplish.
3. You Can Use It After You've Opened All Your Gifts (And Run Out Of Room!)
After the holidays, don't you usually have way more "stuff" than you have space? Your house is likely overflowing with cool things everyone got but have no place to put. What if someone who loves you splurges on that ergonomic chair you want for your home office or that bigger-than-last-year flat screen you're frothing over?
Rather than letting your house be overrun with items that are extra, unwanted, or otherwise wasting space, plop them in your self-storage until a warm weather yard sale is appropriate, or you decide to sell the items online. You could also keep things in storage until someone you know who needs them can come pick them up.
4. You Can Use Your Secret Self-Storage All Year Long
Long after Rudolph has returned to the North Pole, you'll find plenty of practical uses for your self-storage, if you choose to keep it beyond your designated Secret Santa duties. People keep storage units indefinitely, for a nearly infinite list of reasons:
Sure, the holidays can be hectic, but when you have your own self-storage space, everything is under control. You have a place to keep your secrets safe, a place to wrap them, somewhere to catch your breath, and even useful space you can take advantage of throughout the year until next season comes along again - all too quickly!
