Amazing Christmases Start at Amazing Storage (Yes, Really!)

Tags: ,

Christmas in Storage Can be a Christmas Miracle

When you think of Christmas, storage space is probably the last thing on your mind.  And really, who can blame you?  I even work at Amazing Spaces and when I think of Christmas, I think of the cookies, the music, and of course, my family.  But think about it. Think about how valuable a little extra storage space can be this holiday season.

Do you ever feel overwhelmed by the holidays? The cooking, the cleaning, the shopping, the crowds, the planning, the family…really the list goes on.

It’s no wonder this season is often considered the most wonderful and the maddening time of the year.

So how can putting Christmas in storage help you manage the holidays?

Ship all your gifts to your storage unit

Don’t leave your packages out for anyone to see. It’s also probably not a good idea to ship them to the office and embarrass yourself with your online shopping habits.  Finally, avoid shipping them to your apartment complex that closes before 5:00PM so you can never get to them (a particular red-hot anger issue for me – just ask my dad).  Instead, ship them to your secure storage space.  Deliveries are accepted on your behalf, free of charge.  Your mail carrier delivers all your online orders directly to your unit.  The mail delivery person secures the package in your unit and you are assured it is safe and sound. All you need to do is leave a key on file at our property.

Wrap your gifts at YOUR will (with no sneaky peekers bugging you) during Christmas wrapping parties

Every Wednesday, Amazing Spaces plays host to a Christmas Wrapping Extravaganza! Each of our conference rooms are stocked with Amazing Christmas wrapping paper, ribbons, and bows. Bring the items you have shipped to your unit to our beautiful conference rooms. Make yourself some complimentary cocoa or coffee and go to town wrapping presents in peace.  We’ll even put on some Christmas music for you.

Organize your decorations

If you’re like me, you have Christmas decorations out of every corner of your home storage space.  Firstly, put those items into storage for non-Christmas time to have more room at home (and ensure they are securely stored – nobody wants to accidentally break that Swarovski star in the at-home storage pile). Secondly, when it comes Christmas time, you have a space to organize and design the home Christmas decor you’ve always dreamed. Storage makes anyone organized. We even  have electricity in our spaces, so you can test those pesky Christmas lights to see if they work.

Clear the Clutter

Give yourself and your family extra room by putting unnecessary items in storage for a month.  My mom has a craft table she uses 9 out of the 12 months of the year. There’s no place for it when we entertain. Instead of putting it awkwardly in the corner, what do we do? WE put it into storage. Our house looks great and none of my mom’s 12 brothers and sister are clued into our special organization secret. Yes, 12.. I have a big and Amazing Polish family. That’s also part of the reason why we desperately need to have a clutter-free area during the holidays.

Place of peace during a time of pandemonium

One of the best and worst things about Christmas is you are always surrounded by someone. This is why most people have to wrap their presents at 2am. We never have time for our selves during Christmas time. However, renting a space at a place you trust, you are given a personal extension of your home. Relax in the conference room for 5 minutes. Check on your package deliveries. Get a cup of free coffee. Take a moment to breathe. We promise we won’t tell.

In other words…
How storage can make Christmas AMAZING!

    Thanks to the awesome selection of wrapping paper, ribbon, tape, and bows… including scissors- I was able to wrap my Christmas presents I had stashed in my storage unit. Not only did I get all of them wrapped, I had a great time doing it. Having the conference room decked out as a wrapping station is a genius idea!
