I’m not really a “Royal Family” watcher, but with the arrival of the royal baby getting so much press, it got me thinking about young families and how storage can really come into play.
First of all, let me start by saying that having a child is one of the most amazing experiences in life. I have two, and they are without a doubt, two of the most amazing people in my life. I love them more than my own life.
When our children are babies, keeping them safe is a top priority, and self storage units are a great tool to help you with this goal. How?
Self storage units are easy to come by and they provide a means for storing some of your less than kid friendly items. You know, that ornate piece of furniture Junior will soon be swinging from like a miniature Tarzan.
Fact is, some furniture just isn’t safe for kids so let’s look at three steps to making your home safer:
- Begin by taking a look around your home or apartment. Check for items that aren’t safe for small children. This includes furniture with sharp edges, unstable and heavy items, and glass furnishings.
- Next, if you want to keep an item in your home, and can make it safer, do so. Consider using furniture bumpers for sharp corners and handle locks for dangerous drawers. Using mats to keep your rugs from sliding is another safeguard that can prevent your tyke from sliding into a piece of furniture.
- Lastly, you will likely have remaining items that just can’t be made safe. When you get to this point, you have two choices: Get rid of those items, or store them.
Its hard sometimes, to part with our expensive or sentimental items. That’s okay, it won’t be for long. Soon enough, your little one will be big enough to safely be around your less safe furniture.
This leaves you with one logical choice: A cheap self storage unit at Planet Storage 🙂
