So, this is Christmas. And what have you done? Probably nothing, at least since last year. After the presents were opened, the carols were sung, and the stockings were hung (by the chimney with care), Saint Nicholas certainly was there but he ducked out before it was time to clean up.
We don’t blame him, tbh. Cleaning up all of the wrapping, the tinsel and the trimmings from the Roast Beast is never an easy task. And the ornaments! Is there anything more depressing in the entire year (other than the year 2020, because everything is depressing in the year 2020) than taking down the ornaments from the now useless Christmas tree?
The answer is no, there is not.
Still, we have to do it (because society says we can’t keep Christmas lights up all year…we know, we hate that societal norm too), even if we don’t like it. The result is a hodgepodge of ornaments, lights, candy canes, and depression – all strewn together and thrown in a box until next year. We don’t think too much about the Ghost of Christmas Future because, presently, we just want to get rid of the stuff.
But the future always arrives … Read the rest
Having a storage space can be an incredible blessing. Nobody thinks they have too much stuff until they no longer have anywhere to put it. The garage is full, the shed is full, the attic is haunted so you can’t put things there, etc. Finally, when it’s gotten to the point that you have turned the guest room, the basement and the bedroom of your second-born child into “storage space,” it might be time to consider renting an actual unit.
Luckily, K&L Storage is Casper’s largest storage service, with over 800 units in 4 locations. K&L offers 24-hour access, 7 days a week meaning that if/when you need something, all you have to do is come and get it.
The units themselves range in size, depending on the need. But generally, they can be as big, or as small, as you need. Because of this, you may be tempted to put anything and everything you can into a unit. While K&L doesn’t necessarily tell you what you can and cannot put in your unit, there are those of us who will silently judge you. But don’t worry. For your benefit, we have compiled a helpful list of Do’s and Don’t’s … Read the rest
We know. It seemed like a good idea at the time. You’re spending all of this money anyway (though, if you’re using K&L Storage, you’re spending significantly less), you might as well get the most bang for your proverbial buck. It started off innocently enough. It was just a one-time thing, you thought. You and your spouse got into an argument and you were gently encouraged (amid a plethora of swear words) to sleep somewhere else for the night. Because you’re all adults now, you can no longer crash on your friends’ couch, because it’s covered with toys and decorative pillows and there’s simply no room for you (they should look into storing some of those toys and pillows in a unit from K&L Storage). Also, you’re 40. You shouldn’t be sleeping on couches or futons anyway. Grow up.
Anyway, the point is that now you need somewhere to sleep and the options are limited. Granted, you could always just go stay in a hotel, but who needs the added expense of that, especially when you’re already paying for a space that even has some of your belongings in it? So you decide to take a pillow, a blanket and … Read the rest
