Self Storage Tips for Your Kitchen Items

Protect your fragile items.

If the glassware takes up too much space in your cabinets, it’s time to move it to storage. Wrap the glasses and cups in bubble wrap or a durable packing paper to protect them during the move and while they’re tucked away in a storage unit. Silverware tarnishes over time, so wrap it in newspaper to keep it shiny even after being stowed away for months.

Nest your pots, pans, and bowls.

Nesting your pots and pans within one another is a great way to save space in the kitchen. You can also nest your bowls and have even more space for newer cooking items. Pots and pans have awkward shapes and are difficult to pack. Nesting these items makes it easier to fit them all in a larger box when placing them in our storage units.

Place small appliances in plastic bins.

Those who say you can’t have too many appliances have never had a small kitchen. Before you move these items to storage, protect them in plastic storage bins with lids. These containers are durable, easy to stack, and give you a way to see the contents without having to open the lid. They’re inexpensive and come in numerous sizes to store small appliances and other kitchen items with ease.

Use Storage Units for a Clutter-Free Kitchen

Whether you’re mastering your own kitchen or preparing to cook professionally, nothing beats having the space in which to bake your way to success.

How to Store Photos Safely

When you think about it, almost all your material possessions such as electronics, clothing, furniture, even your books and vinyl records, if lost, damaged or destroyed are replaceable. However, that’s not the case with your photographs. While we’re living in an age in which almost all of our pictures are taken and stored digitally, many of us still have a treasure trove of old printed photos and family collections packed away somewhere in the home. If not stored properly, those photos are at risk of being damaged by physical enemies like moisture, pests and even exposure to adhesives and chemicals found in common photo albums.
