Create an In-House Office by decluttering your Guest Room with the help of a Storage Facility

Let’s be honest, we all have that one guest room in our home that we’ve converted into a “storage unit” over the years. You know, the one where you store toilet paper rolls, cleaning supplies, fold up tables/chairs and even Amazon cardboard boxes. Don’t you think it’s about time to put that room to good use, perhaps an in-house office? Did you know that having a dedicated home office space is becoming the new must-have room in most households? According to Global Workplace Analytics, there has been a 103% increase in people working from home since 2005 and that’s among the non-self-employed. So if you’re among the percentage of people who are working from home part-time or even full-time, you may want to know more about how to turn that guest room into a home office. Let’s get started!


  1. This may seem like a no-brainer but the number one issue to deal with when working from home is distractions. Whether it’s the pets, the TV or even household chores – there’s probably going to be something occupying your mind besides work. To help with distractions, it’s best to set up your office away from any TVs. If possible, finish your household chores the day or night before. The key is to make it a habit and to treat your in-house office like you would at work. Strictly professional with the utmost discipline. With that said, it’s also important to keep the same routine you would do if you were going to work. To just name a few, I’m talking about getting up early in the morning and actually dressing up like you would if you were to go to work. In other words, that means you must resist the temptation of rolling out of bed and working in your PJs. It’s important to treat your in-house office with respect to work, otherwise, distractions and procrastination will follow.


  1. Believe it or not, the key to staying alert and staying productive is good lighting. Whether you prefer natural lighting or artificial lighting, find out which works best for you. If you’re looking to set up your office near a window, chances are you’re looking to illuminate your room with natural lighting. If so, keep in mind that the sunlight’s point of entry through the window is largely dependent on the time of day. For instance, when it hits noontime, the sunlight may penetrate through your window and reflect off your laptop to create an unsightly glare. This may or may not be distracting. There’s also the off-chance the sun might decide to call in sick from work. If that’s the case, try a desk lamp that closely resembles sunlight. Now if you prefer a more controlled setting then artificial lighting would be the most ideal choice for you. However, you may see an ever-so-slightly increase in your electricity bill, to say the least. This controlled lighting option gives you the freedom to position your light source to even the color displayed. This may take some trial and error to determine which type of lighting works best for you. Needless to say that having the right type of lighting is going to be essential to staying alert and staying productive.


  1. This may also seem like a no-brainer but trust me when I say this, this happens far too often than not – loss of internet connection. Nothing is more frustrating than encountering a bad internet connection in the middle of your work. It can either slap your motivation across the face or slam the brakes on your work momentum and spiral you down the road of frustration. Both of which will completely destroy your productivity in no time. So, if your work requires an internet connection, I think it would be best to invest in proper internet equipment. Cough up a few extra dollars and save yourself from a world of headaches.

3 Long-Term Storage Tips You Should Consider Before Living Abroad in Another Country

Before we dive right in, it’s important to ask yourself how much stuff you need to store and how long you plan on living abroad. If hypothetically speaking, you plan to book the earliest flight to London with the intention of staying abroad for more than a year. I would highly recommend that you move out of your apartment or the place you’re currently staying at to avoid unnecessary monthly payments. Let’s be honest, we all love money (some more than others) so why not save a few hundred dollars from rent. Savvy? So let’s say you decided to take our recommendation. Yay money! Great! But then it hits you, where are you going to store all your belongings now that you don’t have a place to store them. Fortunately, that’s where a storage facility comes in! Storage facilities typically offer a wide range of storage sizes so you’ll have no problem storing all your belongings. Whether you only have a little bit of stuff or whether you have a closet full of stuff, a storage facility will accommodate your every need. A storage facility is a perfect solution for storing your belongings at an affordable price while keeping your stuff safely secured. Most storage facilities pride themselves on their security so you can bet that they’ll have state-of-the-art security features to help ensure you’ll have a peace of mind when traveling. But before you jump onto this idea, check out these 3 long-term storage tips first!

1. As obvious as this tip may be, you’d be surprised how often this tip gets overlooked. Properly storing and packing. Now, this goes without say. Please make sure that when you’re packaging your boxes or containers to be mindful of your items. Now, what do I mean by this? Don’t toss stuff or randomly stack your items in a box, especially if you’re planning to store your belongings for the long-term. Be mindful of stacking the harder and sturdier items on the bottom of the box and work your way from heavy to light. This is a great way to ensure that your boxes or containers won’t deform and collapse onto one another. You definitely wouldn’t want your heavier boxes smooshing your lighter boxes underneath now, would you?

2. Decide whether or not a climate controlled storage unit is beneficial for you. How would you determine this, you might ask? This is the part where you would sit down in front of your stuff and laser-beam focus on the items that could potentially be damaged if left alone. When I said potentially “damaged”, I’m talking about the items in your possession that are climate sensitive such as wood furniture, electronics, musical instruments and so forth. These climate controlled units, however, are a little more pricey and expensive than the standard storage unit. But the increased cost is well worth it in protecting your belongings in the long run. To a degree, this may even help provide a better peace of mind knowing that your items aren’t subjected to temperature changes.

3. To invest in storage insurance or to not invest in storage insurance? Hmm, that’s a good question to ask oneself, especially if you’re going abroad for a number of years. I strongly suggest looking into storage insurance for precautionary measures. It doesn’t really hurt to add another layer of security to further increase your peace of mind. And in the event of a natural disaster occurring within the facility, you can rest assured knowing that your items are insured. Like the old saying goes, “it’s better safe than sorry.”

SuperStorage Lakeside kitchen

You know what they say! Every New Year comes with new resolutions and what better way than to start a new year than to be organized! But before we get started, it’s also imperative to start the new years with honesty. So, let’s be honest for a second. Most people, myself included, do a pretty lousy job of sticking to our new year’s resolutions. But that’s not going to stop me or many others from trying! Being more organized overall can help you achieve the most popular resolutions of losing weight, staying fit and enjoying life to the fullest! So for starters, let’s begin with organizing our self-storage units! Here are some self-storage organization tips you can do right off the bat!

SuperStorage Lakeside living

Like many of us, we’ve either collected or acquired quite a few things over the past year and that’s completely understandable and relatable. Some stuff may be sentimental, useful, not useful or just plain junk, but to us, they’re all essential. Now as cliché as this may sound, we must control our beautiful junk rather than letting it control us.

When life happens, usually messes happen as well. This is typically the case because there just isn’t ever enough time to get everything organized. Well, you’re in luck! A storage unit can help you by providing a place for all your beautiful junk. One of the main issues when it comes to organization is having too much stuff lying around with too little space. So say bye-bye to your junk piles that you have to throw your body against in order to close. It’s about that time to send all that stuff that you’re “probably going to use again” into a storage unit where it can at least stay out of your way. So how do you decide which stuff gets stored in a storage unit? Here are some suggestions.

Go through each and every room in your home. Stop in any of the rooms and ask yourself what items are in this room that’s taking up space. There’s absolutely no reason for random stuff to be taking up valuable space in your home. Now, what exactly do I mean when I say “value”? What I mean by value is whether or not the item provides any usefulness. For example, if a toy elephant is placed on top of a drawer for decoration purposes or it holds sentimental value. Then by all means that toy elephant is valuable to your household. What would deem invaluable would be a stuffed animal that you placed on top of a drawer because you haven’t figured out where to put it. Items like these whether their toys, paintings, tools or etc. are perfect examples that are taking up valuable space in your home that offer no value. Now that you figured out what and what not to keep in your household, how does that help you become more organized?

2) Find out if the self-storage facility offers insurance – whenever a facility offers insurance, that’s always a good sign. It shows that the facility is confident in securing your belongings. Additionally, having insurance on your belongings is always good to have in case a security breach occurs or your belongings are damaged.

3) Find out whether your belongings are sensitive to the environment – in other words, if you’re renting an outdoor storage, it’s important to make sure that your unit is completely sealed and secured to prevent any damages from the environment such as the weather. Depending on the items you plan on storing, a climate controlled storage unit is typically the best option. Without proper environmental protection, you belongings may be in danger of damages from such elements as floods, fires and rust.

While a lock may seem like the most obvious signs of security, people tend to not take into consideration the lock quality. Keep in mind that some facilities may require you to bring your own security lock for your own protection while other facilities have their own security measures to ensure your belongings are safe.

Keep Healthy While You’re Moving Homes

Keep Healthy While You’re Moving Homes   

Moving can be hard work so you want to make sure to stock up on healthy snacks and stay hydrated. Especially during the summer when the heat can get to unbearable temperatures, you want to make sure that when you’re doing heavy lifting that you keep your body cool and nourished. Whether you are moving in and out of your self storage unit, or moving in and out of a truck, these tips will help keep you strong through the job.

1. Keep water accessible to hydrate — If you are moving into or out of your self storage unit, make sure to have water bottles in a cooler in the car. Don’t forget to drink your water often between trips of moving your items from the car or to the car, especially on a hot summer’s day. If you are moving items between your new home from your old home, make sure to have water bottles at both your new home and old home so they are accessible. This is one of the most forgotten items when arriving at the new home: handy water bottles for when you are unpacking your truck for the first time. Having a case handy will keep you and your family hydrated when unpacking the truck.


2. Drink sports drinks with electrolytes, avoid sodas!— In the times when you are doing extraneous heavy lifting, whether it is moving large appliances in and out of your self storage unit or into and out of your moving truck, you want to have your sports drinks handy to replenish after breaking out in sweat. The electrolytes found in sports drinks such as Gatorade and Powerade can help the body endure heavy lifting and long hours of moving items in and out of your home or self storage unit. Avoid Sodas at all costs during moving because soda dehydrates the body and it will give you a sugar crash. Stick to water and the sports drinks during heavy moving days.

3. Re-energize with healthy snacks—Moving is extremely stressful and sometimes we forget to eat during stressful times. It’s important to energize your body during a move, especially when lifting heavy boxes or moving large appliances. Take constant breaks to reenergize with healthy snacks, such as nuts and energy bars. Readily accessible pre-packaged healthy snacks such as nut packages and energy bars are perfect for quick snacking, especially when you are on the go such as driving in the moving truck.


4. Healthy meals on-the-go to keep your energy flowing —Don’t forget to eat your meals! Snacking is great to hold you over but it’s essential to eat healthy meals to keep your body in top-performance shape for all the packing and lifting that moving requires. Avoid fast-food restaurants that have little-nutrition meals and instead opt for pre-packaged salads with chicken in them or sandwiches from the local deli. Whole foods such as whole grains and white-meats will help keep you nourished and won’t give you the carbohydrate crashes that fast foods give. You can always purchase sandwiches from a deli the day before or on the morning of the move and keep the sandwiches in a cooler when moving. That way, you can eat during a break when unpacking your items into a self storage unit or your new home.

5. Fresh juices for added nourishment to keep you moving—Juices are a healthy option to gain nutrients and keep your blood sugar up when having a long day moving. Fresh juices have the vitamins and fiber to keep you going throughout the day. Moving days are long and hard and you want to make sure you are staying fit and healthy throughout it, or else your body will be overworked and you run the risk of getting sick. Fresh orange juice will keep your immune system strong. Local juice shops can provide you with all the fresh juices you need on moving day.


Moving is stressful and self storage can help! Whether it is for long-term storage or short-term storage, SuperStorage Lakeside can help you find the right storage space for your needs. If you are moving from a larger home to a smaller home or apartment, you can use self storage spaces to house items that you cannot take with you such as furniture, extra beds, cabinets, or other household items. If you are between moving from one home to another and need to place your items into self storage during the in-between time, SuperStorage Lakeside is perfect for storing your items in such circumstances. Here at SuperStorage Lakeside we offer a variety of storage units in Lakeside at great prices. Rent a 8×10 storage unit for $145 a month to store all your items during a move.

Moving & De-Cluttering Easily

How To Get Clutter Moved Out Of Your Home

Spring cleaning or summer moving, the task of de-cluttering or packing is dreadful (yet worthwhile) when done right. Planning, timing and organizing helps stay focused.

Plan Your Move

Sometimes just starting the process is challenging. Where to begin cleaning? Which closet should I start organizing? Which items can I start packing before my official moving date? These questions can be overwhelming and easily result in procrastination. What should you do? The answer is simple: start small!

Small Spaces Are Easier To Clean

Plan Your Move to StorageTackling a smaller space or a simpler closet as the first goal keeps the stress more manageable. Mentally note that it’s a smaller (or an easier) area and remind yourself that it won’t take as much time. Best part about it is, once you’re done, you are going to feel the positive effects of de-cluttering (Read Why Decluttering Is Good For Your Health) and will want to continue the momentum.

Set Aside Time Just For Packing

Often times, even with the best of intentions, multitasking ends up being less productive. With daily demands of family, home and work, we are already stretched for time. Adding a home move to that juggle can amount to high levels of anxiety. Additionally, studies have shown that multitasking can cause us to get more tired which is counterproductive to your plan of staying focused and motivated to get through that long packing list. Read more about why Neuroscientists Say Multitasking Literally Drains The Energy Reserves Of Your Brain.

Multitasking Drains Productivity

De-clutter For Storage TipsIt’s important to commit some time to packing or cleaning. As with other areas of your life, give yourself a realistic time limit to accomplish the goal. If it’s a small drawer you are trying to empty or organize, maybe schedule an hour of uninterrupted time to go through it instead of taking a few minutes here and there between phone calls or appointments. If it’s an entire closet, chances are you will need half a day to a full day. So, maybe Grandma and Grandpa can spend some quality time with the kids on Saturday!

Organize Your Space

The whole idea of spring cleaning is to freshen up your space by de-cluttering and well…cleaning! Which means: actually clean out your space by removing unnecessary items. Simply shifting items from one place to another without deciding on its need in your home is another form of procrastination. For instance, if you’re packing for a move, think how much time and energy you will save by getting rid of these extra items before you move into your new home. The laborious task of packing and moving items from your old to new place is undoubtedly tiring mentally and physically. By not adding unwanted extras to your boxes will, at the least, save you some time even when it’s time to unpack.

Organizing & Packing Your HomeOrganizing can help make your daily routine run smoother. Knowing exactly where something is, having a safe spot for those cherished items you use occasionally and maximizing your living space (think impromptu dance moves or laughs over dinner with friends) makes living your life so much easier and more fun!

Moving homes or cleaning is not fun (not for most right?). But, managing it by planning, scheduling uninterrupted time and organizing will get you through it. Most importantly, remember that it will get done!
