How Students Should Store Their Stuff

HOW STUDENTS SHOULD STORE THEIR STUFF HOW YOU CAN CUT COSTS BOOK EARLY STUDENT DISCOUNTS Summer is peak season, especially in college towns. The earlier you book, the better the price. Call around to find student discounts, and negotiate the rate. STUDENT SPLIT IT FILL IT UP Consider splitting a larger space with a friend. Pack efficiently and you won't pay for space you don't need. HOW MUCH SPACE YOU NEED FRESHMAN SOPHOMORE A 5x5 unit has room for a dozen A 5x10 has space for everything in a 5x5, plus a mattress and a box spring. boxes, desk, chair and a lamp. JUNIOR SENIOR A 5x15 should be enough for the contents of a studio apartment. A 10x10 unit has room for a bed- room and living room set, a kitchen table, and plenty of boxes. HOW YOU CAN PACK LIKE A BOSS PACK BACKWARDS FILL EVERY BOX Any items you'll need access to should be at the front of your unit. This means packing your vehicle backwards, with the high use items furthest back in your van or truck. Filling each box will prevent the sides or top from being crushed. Fill open spaces with crumpled paper or bubblewrap. DON'T BE A HERO STACKS ON STACKS Pack heavy items into small boxes and lighter objects into large ones. Don't make boxes too heavy to move. Using similar sized boxes will help with stacking. Make sure to put heavy items on the bottom. RESPECT YOUR BOOKS WOAH IT'S HOT Stack books instead of standing them end on end to protect their spines. Pack books into heavy-duty boxes. If you live somewhere that gets particularly hot or humid, think about a climate controlled unit for temperature sensitive items like books, electronics, and clothes. you NEXT DOOR Sources: STORAGE SELF STORAGE Lulululul.
