How to Store Souvenirs Without Them Becoming Unnecessary Clutter
Sometimes it's nice to get out of New Jersey and see other parts of the country or the world. While you're away, you may collect a few souvenirs and want to bring them home to show everyone where you've been. Unfortunately, some souvenirs get tossed to the side and become useless clutter. Access Self Storage has some tips to help you store and show off your souvenirs when you return home to Plainfield, NJ.
Smart Ways to Store Souvenirs
Place travel brochures in photo storage boxes.
Most people buy or pick up free travel brochures when they arrive at a location. Keeping these items after the trip will give you something to look back on and relive fond memories. Keep them stored neatly and safely in a photo storage box, and set them aside on a shelf.
Keep valuables on display in a glass showcase.
Some souvenirs are worth showing off to friends, family, and guests. If you’ve purchased expensive memorabilia, put it on display in a glass showcase. You can select between floor-standing and countertop display cases depending on the amount and size of your souvenirs.
Store bulkier souvenirs in a clear plastic bin.
If you want to keep bulky souvenirs but don’t care about displaying them, store them neatly in a plastic container. Invest in clear plastic containers with lids, preferably the ones that stack on top of each other. You’ll be able to see through the clear plastic when searching for a certain souvenir. The lids snap on tightly and prevent your souvenirs from falling out if the container tips over.
