Cathedral Village Self Storage Shares Seven Places You Should Never Use for Storage
Some places just shouldn't be used for storage.
April 12, 2016 - Do you feel frustrated because your home or apartment always feels cluttered and messy? If you don't have enough storage space, then it can make your living space seem uncomfortable. But, you can change it anytime by cleaning up your mess and clearing the clutter. At Cathedral Village Self Storage, we've heard of some pretty crazy places people have used for storage. Here are a few you really should avoid:
Under Your Bed: Storing stuff under the bed is a recipe for a mess, because it often turns into a black hole where things get lost. Use the closet instead of under the bed, or get rid of some of your stuff.
The Dishwasher: Don't store dishes, or any other items, in the dishwasher long-term. This appliance is designed to be used temporarily when the dishes are being cleaned, but then it should be emptied right after the cycle ends.
Your Spare Bedroom: How can you invite guests over if the spare bedroom is full of stuff? Clear out the room so that you can create a comfortable space for family and friends.
Your Car: Do you have a hard time finding places for your grocery bags because your car is loaded with random items? Clear out the trunk and seats, because your car isn't designed to be a storage unit!
Your Office: It can be distracting to have an office filled with storage boxes and random items. How are you supposed to focus on work when your office space is cluttered?
The Oven: When guests are coming over, it might be tempting to hide pots, pans, dishes, and other items in the oven. But, this practice can be dangerous, especially if you forget about the storage items and turn on the oven at another time.
Your Bathtub: There is no way to soak in a relaxing bath if your tub is full of stuff. Instead of turning your bathtub into an extra storage unit, find a more appropriate place for storage.
If you don't have enough storage space in your home, then the best thing that you can do is find a local storage unit to use. You can clean up the clutter in your home and keep your belongings protected at the same time.
