How Self-Storage Can Help an Expanding Family

Is your family expanding? Space in your home becomes scarce when you are expecting a new addition to the family, or you are in a blended family situation. Ideally, it would be nice to move into a larger home, but is your budget ready for that? If it is, great! If it isn’t, self-storage could be the solution. Self-storage is a cost effective way to maximize the space in your home.

Do you have a bedroom in your home that looks like a storage locker? Maybe it’s time you put those treasures into self-storage, so you have room for the new people coming into your life. What is the cost savings of using a storage unit versus moving from a 3-bedroom home to a 4-bedroom home? On average, that extra bedroom would increase your mortgage by $200/month versus a 5×10 storage locker which averages about $65/month. Moving from a 3-bedroom home to a 4-bedroom with a garage increases your mortgage by $300/month versus a 10×10 storage unit averaging about $100/month. Read More

Why We Support Big Brothers & Sisters or Boys and Girls Clubs

As a small business in a small community, why would you want to reach out and support a charity such as Big Brothers & Big Sisters (BBBS), The Boys & Girls Club, Girl Guides, or Scouts.

A better question to ask is, why would you not?

Personally, I cherish the time I spend with our local BBBS community. I have children of my own and there have been times where as a parent I’ve had to work very long days. In those times, my son or daughters might have needed a Big Brother or Big Sister. I was fortunate enough to have the support of other family members, but I know many other parents don’t have enough support. I speak from experience when I say a tired parent can only do so much for a child. My fear, as a mother, has always been the possibility of a child not having enough positive adult role models in their young lives. I believe that every parent should know they are not in it alone in raising their child, and that their community is there for them. Read More
