Holiday Gifts
“It’s Beginning to Look a lot Like Christmas”, particularly with the cold wintry weather hitting the Baltimore/Washington area! With the shortened Holiday shopping season, this year shoppers are racing around trying to find those perfect gifts either in the stores or online. Once you have the gifts at home waiting to be wrapped, how you protect them from the prying eyes of snooping family members? If you bought furniture, bicycles or even larger electronic items during the Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales, you will need a space to store these items so they aren’t found by family members. As a child, my parents would have to hide our gifts at a relative’s house because my sister and I loved to try to find our gifts which ruined Christmas surprises. If you don’t have the space in your home (or a relative close by), then renting a self storage unit over the holiday season is a great solution for the “holiday snooping” problem! ezStorage units come in a variety of sizes ranging from 5×5 to 10×30. The 5×5 size i a perfect way to store gifts at an economical price. If you need a larger storage unit to convert to a “Santa’s Workshop”, allowing you to wrap and organize all of your gifts, then it would be a good idea to rent a larger storage unit. ezStorage is also a great place for retail shops to store excess inventory during their busiest season of the year. Business owners can have peace of mind knowing that their inventory is safe and secure. It is important for the retail owner to choose a storage location that is close to their business for easy access and ezStorage has many convenient locations throughout the Baltimore/Washington area. If you need long-term storage for holiday or seasonal items, then ezStorage is a great solution. Large holiday decorations such as artificial Christmas trees, wreaths or lawn decorations can take up a lot of room in a basement, attic or garage. Renting a self storage unit for these items will help reduce the clutter that accumulates over the holiday season. Storing your seasonal clothing and outdoor toys in a storage unit will also help eliminate some of the clutter in your home. During the winter months, you can store summer clothing, gardening equipment and outdoor toys in your storage unit. Once the season changes, you can store your winter sweaters, bulky coats and comforters. ezStorage offers month-to-month rentals, which is perfect for short-term storage during the holidays or all year long. ezStorage wishes everyone a safe and happy holiday season!
