Crack open the eggnog and cut yourself another slice of fruitcake, because the 2013 holiday season is upon us and it’s going to be a festive occasion that lasts until sometime in early January!
If you’ve somehow missed the start of the holiday season, you’ve probably been out of the country for the last few weeks. In the hours after Thanksgiving, the landscape across Moore, Oklahoma, and most of the nation, took a magical turn in appearance. Take a short drive around town and you’ll see. Holiday décor has been put up all over town. Most houses are lit with lights. Signs wishing passers-by a “Happy Holidays” or a “Merry Christmas” have been staked out in front lawns. There’s a tree in almost every front window, decked out in traditional trimmings (bulbs, tinsel, garland, and all sorts of ornaments). Step closer, peek inside the home and see how the stocking have been hung by the chimney with care. Everything is merry and bright.
One thing that’s true about the holiday season is the fact that there isn’t a home decked in Christmas decorations that doesn’t add a handful (or more) of new ornaments and decorations every year. Why? Because we love Christmas and everything that goes into the celebration. But, of course, at the end of each holiday season, someone in the house is charged with deciding how to pack it all up and where to store the holiday decorations until the next season arrives. And given the volumes of holiday décor that the average home has to store, this can be a real chore. Fortunately, there’s a simple solution. Around these parts, self storage in Moore, Oklahoma is the answer—but we’ll get to that in a minute.
According to the National Retail Federation, Americans will spend around $6 billion on Christmas décor this season alone. That’s about $20 per every U.S. citizen. And that’s a lot of inflatable Santas to put up in storage at the end of December. But, if you think about it, the holiday decorations in the average household aren’t limited to Christmas. Sure, Christmas is a HUGE holiday for decorations—bulky decorations at that—but many homes break out the festive gear for Thanksgiving, Easter, and Halloween each year. In many homes, there’s a box (or set of boxes) for each holiday. If the family is big on celebrating with decorations, these boxes can occupy a great deal of space in an attic or basement, making it difficult to store other seasonal equipment, clothing, and belongings. But, if you choose to store your Christmas and holiday décor in an Oklahoma self-storage facility, you’re freeing up a vast amount of space in the basement or attic for those items that get more usage.
Think about what you could do with the extra space in your home after you store all your holiday décor in a clean, secure self storage facility. You could remodel part of the space into an office or home gym (to work off all that eggnog and fruitcake). You could transform the space into a workshop or hobby space. You could even build yourself a room addition and make better use of that available space while adding value to your home at the same time!
