Season’s greetings everyone! It’s that special time of year again; where cheer and joy surround us and excitement fill the air!
Christmas is the time of happiness but also can be a time of stressfulness especially when it comes to completing your Christmas shopping list. Am I right? We know the struggle of buying the presents we need. From toddler toys to more elaborate gifts for friends and family. Although the struggle of finishing your Christmas shopping list may seem difficult at the time it’s actually nothing compared to when you have to hide your gifts until Christmas Eve. Packing and wrapping the gifts may pose another new set challenge to some but that could be managed when the kids or extended family members aren’t there. The real problem comes after the presents have been wrapped. It’s definitely not easy storing or hiding a big glimmering shining present from the eyes of a child. We can all agree that children are very adventurous and they’ll find some way to stumble upon things we never thought would happen. Which is why I propose we hide our Christmas presents in a self-storage facility?
Depending on the presents you bought, you might want to double check if a climate controlled unit would work best to store your presents. Now, I understand that this may seem like a lot of effort just to maintain the excitement. However, kids actually anticipate Christmas not because of what they know they will receive but because they know that they’ll be surprised. I also like to think that most parents are concerned about storing gifts before the holidays. Say for example, sometime in August or September you stumble upon a sales event and in that event, there was something that caught your eye that would make an excellent gift. Now if I knew any better, chances are you’re most likely going to buy it and store it and use it when the time is right. This occurrence is what I’d like to call fate shopping or simply seizing the opportunity. Instances like these where we buy gifts far in advance have many perks and benefits. One benefit is that we have 1 less gift to worry about when it comes down to complete our Christmas shopping list. The second benefit is avoiding the long lines and last-minute shoppers at the checkouts. As for the perks, there are just too many to name so I’m going to share with you my favorite perk. Discount Sales. That’s right, discount sales. I’m talking about online shopping discounts as well as in-store discounts.
Now I can’t say this about everyone but I know that majority of us wouldn’t mind saving a few dollars here and there. Agree? I’ll take that as a yes. With that said, I for one love the idea of saving a few dollars while checking off my Christmas shopping list at the same time. Now I say this only because we can all relate just how expensive gifts can be. Before you say anything, I know that some of you may say that we don’t have to spend a lot of money on gifts. This, in my opinion, is absolutely true! I can even go as far and say the cliché saying “it’s the thought that counts.” Now although this may ring true to some, I think a carefully thought up gift that’s inexpensive as well as practical and useful can go a long way.
Christmas shopping can be a stressful task but it doesn’t have to be! Careful planning can help minimize the burden of completing your shopping list. Once you complete your early bird Christmas shopping and have them all neatly wrapped up, it’s time to store them! What better place than to store them than your Self-Storage Facility? Store your gifts and presents in your storage unit until the December rolls around or in most cases until the Christmas tree is in the house. Christmas is an exciting and wonderful holiday. A few thoughtful planning for this annual event is nothing compared to the wonders and joy it brings to those around you.
