storage units for blended families

When blending two families into one, things can get rather stressful. Not only do you have to worry about all of the members of each family, but you also have to worry about all of their stuff. How do you make two family's worth of things fit into one house? Can you get rid of some stuff? Should you hold onto the things that aren't really needed? I created this blog to help other blended families learn how to utilize storage units as a way to meet in the middle of some of the disagreements that can arise during the blending process.

Oh, Christmas Tree! Oh, Christmas Tree, How Do We Store Thee?

If you are one of those families that spends two hours assembling a fake Christmas tree, and then you have to take it all down after Christmas, you know what a pain it is. More obnoxious is the problem of storing a fake tree. The bigger the fake tree, the harder it is to store, too. As you look forward to Christmas this year, but groan inwardly about taking things down later, here are some storage solutions that could make storing your fake tree much easier:

Mini Storage

Honestly, humans store a lot of stuff they rarely use or will never use again. In smaller homes with limited space, storing a fake Christmas tree is quite the problem. Mini storage, which are small, closet-like units, allow you to stash stuff you only use once a year or may never use again. Along with the mini-unit comes the mini-price, which provides peace of mind and more room in your home. 

Rolling Christmas Tree Bags

Fake trees tend to be almost as heavy and as dense as real ones. Lugging the various parts of a fake tree down from your attic or up from the basement is a real workout, especially if you have to carry so many branches at a time and make several trips to do it. Make it easier on yourself and get a rolling Christmas tree bag. These things are usually red or green, have zippers across the top, handles on all sides, and rolling wheels under the bag like a large piece of luggage. You throw the entire tree in the bag, zip it up, and roll it to any storage location you want. 

Plastic Storage Tubs

Get some large plastic storage tubs, preferably the ones with wheels and handles. You can find these just about anywhere. As you pull the fake tree apart, start chucking limbs into the buckets, organizing by size as you go. Put the locking lids on, and roll them into storage. No more carrying limbs and parts up and down stairs to the attic or to the basement, and you can even roll these totes out to the garage if you have room out there.

Make It As Convenient As You Can

When dealing with a fake Christmas tree, you should always make storage for it as easy as you can. The less work you have to put into pulling it out and putting it away next season the better off you will be. The above ideas are just a few things to get you started.
