Hey UCF! Save Some Money on Summer Storage.

First day of spring 2014Today’s the first day of spring! With only a month or so left in the spring semester (good luck with finals!), it’s time to think about where to store your stuff over the summer. While there is some time left before the end of the semester party, we recommend reserving a storage unit as soon as possible to ensure you get the right size and the lowest price.

We have two convenient locations near the University of Central Florida:

  • Personal Mini Storage is just 10 minutes from campus down on Forsyth Road between University Blvd and E Colonial Dr. View Facility Features
  • U-Lock-It Self Storage is also 10 minutes from campus at the corner of University Blvd and Forsyth Rd. (Next to Full Sail University) View Facility Features

Also, check out The College Student’s Guide to Summer Storage for more information on when to get started, what items you may want to consider storing, and ways to save money on storage.

Make Your Storage Invisible at UCF

The best storage is the storage you can’t see! Especially for small spaces, dorms and apartments in the UCF area, clutter can make a space feel cramped and in disarray. Try hiding your things in hidden locations around your dorm or apartment with these fun tips:

  • Furniture can double as storage. Spruce up your apartment and use a trunk as a table. You can also find a coffee table with hinges to pack blankets and pillows inside.
  • Every closet door is a storage opportunity. Small shelves can be attached to it, a shoe rack can hang from it, etc. Every space counts!
  • Don’t forget about your upper cabinet space in the kitchen. Kitchens in apartments are already small, so utilize all the space possible in your cabinets.

How to Master Your UCF To-Do List

Do you have a hard time remembering what you need to get done today, or where you need to go in the UCF area? Do you need help prioritizing your time? Have you ever forgotten to do homework for class? To-do lists are a great way to make sure every task you need to do gets done in a timely manner.

Here are some tips and tricks to make sure your to-do list is actually working!

  • Leave your list visible all day long. This will ensure that you stick to the tasks on the list, and stay on task.
  • Put the most important tasks/projects on the top of the list. If you list tasks by importance, the items needing the most attention will get done first.
  • Take breaks in between tasks, not in the middle of them. Give yourself a reward of a break after completely a task. Maybe do homework for one class, take a break, then start the next.
  • Motivate yourself with a “Done” list. Seeing items getting done will push you to complete more tasks.

How to Store Your Holiday Decorations at UCF

We are back in school and are already a week into 2013. It might be a good time to take down all those holiday decorations before your UCF neighbors start to complain! Really organize your decorations this year so next holiday season will be even easier.

Most items, especially those holiday sweaters, will fit into boxes. For decorations, the boxes should be padded so the items do not break. Use wrapping paper or bubble wrap to protect them. Keep the smaller, delicate items on top to keep them from getting crushed by larger items. Label each box so retrieving the decorations you want to use next year will be easier. Make sure to label the fragile boxes to ensure careful handling.

Not only do families in the UCF area, as well as students use extra space for storing holiday items, but so do businesses! Offices may have that cluttered back corner or closet filled with decorations. Storage units in the UCF area are a great, affordable option for seasonal storage.
