Large families can be chaotic. It can be difficult to keep track all your children’s daily activities to everyone’s spending habits. That is why it is important to learn how to organize your life and plan a budget. If you have a large family and need help planning, Berks County’s DAK Self-Storage is here for you. There are a variety of ways that renting a DAK Self-Storage unit can make both your life and your families lives a little bit easier.
Save Baby Supplies for Next Child
If you plan on having more children, it is a smart idea to save all your baby supplies. Cribs, car seats and other baby furniture can be expensive. Why get rid of everything just to buy more supplies later on. As long as your baby supplies are not damaged, you should reuse them.
If you don’t have room to store everything in your home, DAK Self-Storage can keep everything safe for you. We have units in various sizes so you can store as much or as little as you need. Be sure to take apart what furniture you can and measure everything. This way you can pick the right size unit so have enough room for everything, but don’t end up paying for space you don’t need.
Store Toys and Clothing
As children age, they want different toys. After your first child grows, you may be left with the simple toys that taught shapes, colors, and animals. These toys may seem useless now, but if you plan on having another child, you should save them. With a good cleaning and a few touch-ups, they will look good as new. If you want to keep them out of sight and mind, store them at DAK Self-Storage. Be sure to properly clean, protect, and label everything before you do.
Once your kid hits a growing spurt, they will go through clothing quickly. Like toys, clothing that is not stained or tarnished can be saved for your next child. Again, you will need to clean and properly protect everything before storing. You will also want to rent a unit with climate control. If the clothing is exposed to high humidity levels, mold or mildew may begin to grow.
Buy Non-Perishable Everyday Supplies in Bulk
A popular way to save money is to buy in bulk. If you learn how to be thrifty and use coupons you can make every dollar go farther. Stocking up on everyday items like paper towels, diapers, tissues, and more will save you money that you can put into other important expenses. DAK Self-Storage can help you store your stockpile, but be careful what you decide to store. Don’t store any perishable items or other materials that may attract pests. Not only will some of your money go to waste, but you may end up with a mess to clean up.
Store Away Dangerous or Important Items
If you have multiple children, it can be difficult to keep an eye on all them at all times. With this in mind, you need to make sure your home is safe. You may have plenty of items around your home that you don’t want kids getting into, from chemicals to antiques, to collections. DAK Self-Storage can keep dangerous or fragile items safe until your kids understand how to behave around these items. If you do store valuable items, consider purchasing insurance.
Free Up Floor Space
Kids like to run around and need space to play. With this in mind, you may decide to clear out some of your furniture to make room. Rather than giving your furniture away, store it a DAK Self-Storage. Furniture can be tricky to store, so be sure to plan ahead.
