College is an especially exciting time in a young persons life. For most it is the first time that they have moved out of the house, and whether they are moving into a dorm or a nearby apartment with friends, the student is going to need some stuff. The best way to prepare for the college experience, at least as far as belongings go, is to rent an Etobicoke self storage unit well in advance.
Make a list of items that will be needed before the move to college. If you will be moving into a dorm space, check with the dorm on the rules of what is allowed and what is not. Also check to see what furniture is already in the room. This will help you avoid purchasing items or furniture that are not allowed in the room, or is already in the room.
Once you have a list of known items that you need you can begin to prepare. One of the easiest ways to do this is by renting an Etobicoke self storage unit. This way you will not loose any livable space in your house, and everything can remain packed so that you have a head start. Depending on how much stuff you need to take your unit size may vary.
Now that you are armed with a list of items that you need you can begin to look for garage sales or bargains that you find in stores to begin to check these items off your list. Once they are purchased, simply pack these items up and move them into the self storage unit. By the time the day arrives to head off to college you will be well prepared.
Remember not only is self storage great to help prepare for college but it can be a life saver when it comes to summer break and students move out of the dorms. Finding an Etobicoke self storage unit near campus can house the majority of your items during summer break, instead of dragging all of your boxes, furniture, and suit cases back home.
Self storage can also be a great solution for the parents of college students. Instead of leaving their bedroom empty for eight or nine months out of the year, turn the room into usable space. Move their left behind furniture and belongings into a self storage unit and create your own space for yourself. Perhaps you have always wanted a library or a craft room. By clearing out their stuff you can create a room that is what you want it to be and make it usable, and perhaps you will work in a pull out couch for when they visit on breaks.
College is a great time of transition in the lives of young people. Finding out who they are, and working towards a career. By adding a self storage space you can work around all of these transitions by adding a little extra space to your life.
