Back-to-school season is in full swing all across the country and fall seems closer by the minute. Along with kids settling into the routine of the school year comes the hectic madness and hustle of morning and afternoon activity. With sports, lessons, carpooling, and attempting to squeeze in a meal here and there, one’s house can become an utter mess in no time at all. But do not worry because with a little planning, forethought and some help from the Braemar team, you can very easily change your family’s life from chaotic to calm.
Storage Solution Tips for the New School Year
The enter/exit zone: Along with school comes backpacks, lunch boxes, jackets, band instruments, sports equipment and more. All of these things must have a place to go. Many homes have a mudroom where the family enters and exits. Mudrooms are perfect for storage solution units. The unit should have hooks for backpacks and jackets as well as drawers for towels, umbrellas and other items you may need when entering or exiting. If you don’t have a mudroom, you can still seamlessly integrate a storage solution unit near the door in your home that is most often used.
Homework space: Alas, with school comes homework. Not only can homework itself be frustrating for parents and students, but the mess that comes along with homework (papers, folders, pencils, rulers, protractors, calculators, etc.) can create clutter on the dining room table or other space. Experts suggest creating a “homework space” for your children so their minds can better focus on their academics. In order to do this, you need some type of storage. Braemar can help you with really creative ways to make a pre-existing space more storage-friendly, or we can help you find a storage solution unit that will work for you and your family.
Cooler weather: As the weather cools down, your family will begin moving back inside for fun and recreation. When this happens, one’s house can become full of everything from DVD cases, toys, snowboards, sleds, you name it! To save your sanity, be sure you are prepared when it comes to storage. Whether you need more adequate storage in your main living space or in your garage, we can assist you in finding what you need and creating your perfect storage solution, keeping your home beautiful instead of a dumping ground.
A new school year is an exciting time for everyone and right now, we’re all still riding the adrenaline wave, but soon the humdrum of the year will set in. When that happens, ensure you are prepared to stay organized. Contact Braemar today for more information and to assist you with finding your ideal storage unit.
