Where did the summer go? It felt like it was only yesterday when it was time to get excited about summer holidays, cookouts and family gatherings? How did it become that dreaded back to school time already? The Liberty County School District already started classes on August 6, 2012. This also included Britten Elementary school in Ft. Stewart. The other 2 elementary schools at Ft. Stewart started back to school on August 13, 2012. The Chatham County school district schools start back to school on Monday, August 27, 2012. Families with school aged children are starting to get back in their school year routines and schedules. There have been back to school sales at all the stores and the kids are collecting their school supplies, uniforms and sporting equipment for the year.
How does back to school tie in with self storage? Self storage is a great option to store all of your children’s extra sports equipment, uniforms, musical instruments, old projects and documents. All of these items tend to clutter up homes starting at the beginning of the school year. As the year progresses, the collection grows bigger and bigger and takes up more space in the home. Renting a self storage unit can help eliminate the extra clutter of all of the school year activities.
Some Savannah area colleges have already started their fall semester classes this week, including Armstrong Atlantic State University and Savannah State University . Savannah Tech will start classes at the end of the month at their 5 area campuses. Savannah College of Art & Design will be starting their classes on September 10, 2012.
This time of year is a big time of transition, especially for new college students. New students, who are living away from home for the first time, need to be highly organized with their belongings. They need to reduce their home bedroom into a few boxes and suitcases. Their dormitory living space will be much less than what they are used to. They will not be able to bring childhood collections and items with them to college. Once, the college students are out of the house, parents might decide to do a major clean or a redecoration of the student’s room. But, where can you store all of the student’s collectible’s, clothes and furniture when you change the room into an office or in-home gym? Store these items in a self storage unit, so you can keep them in good shape for your student to look through them when they are at home. Then, it will be up to the student to decide to keep the items! As we have mentioned earlier this year, college students and self storage are a perfect match. The student who had used self storage in the spring to store their school items for their summer break now needs to clean out their storage unit and move back into the dormitory or college apartment.
Stop N Stor wishes everyone a safe and enjoyable school year!!! We are here to help with your storage needs through the transitional back to school time.
