Unexpectedly Awesome Things You Can Do With a Storage Unit

Friday, December 20, 2019

Repurposing. It could be the key to helping us to lead a more sustainable, less wasteful and potentially more cost effective life. For example, distressing damaged or worn furniture can help you to get more life out of it while keeping a shabby chic theme running through your home. Tissue and baby wipe boxes can be repurposed to store just about anything.

The essence of repurposing is looking at things all over the home in a different way. But the principles can also be applied to local amenities and businesses in your community. If someone close to you offers storage services, you might be able to make use of these in unconventional but cost effective ways. Here are some unexpected but awesome things that you can do with a storage unit…

Get yourself in tip top shape

The new year is almost upon us and with it the usual deluge of declarations from our friends and work colleagues that this, this is the year when they’ll get in shape. It’s the year that they’ll start hitting the gym regularly and making better food choices. But for many of us, the idea of getting in shape at the gym is more than a little daunting. Grunting and sweating amidst all those smug beautiful people who seem to make exercise look effortless is more likely to make us want to immerse ourselves in a vat of Pringles than head back for more.

A storage unit, properly equipped, can be a great place for you to work out in solitude, ensuring that you compare yourself to nobody but yourself. Here are some effective but virtually equipment-free exercises to get you started.

Win the battle for closet space

Is getting an outfit from your closet feeling increasingly like a battle? Do you have to wade through a forest of coats and twist your ankle on a pair of supine heels to get a sweater you like from right at the back. Even when we rotate our closets seasonally, we can still find ourselves struggling to keep track of our clothes.

If you’d love more space but don’t want to part with any of your beloved garments, a storage unit can be a great way to keep your clothes protected while freeing up space in your closet. It can be a great way to cling to the clothes you love while still ensuring that your closet and home don’t get too cluttered.

Start a business

Why the heck not? Many a business has been founded in a storage unit. They can help you to store goods for selling through an ecommerce platform or even provide a low-cost alternative to ridiculously expensive office space. Combined with a virtual address, a storage unit can give you everything you need to start a business and take back control of your career. And because many are climate controlled you’ll always be comfortable and know that your tech will be in great working order.

Looking at familiar things in a new way can be a wonderful learning experience. So spare a second thought for the humble storage unit.
