How To Use A Storage Company in Kamloops to Help Get Ready For Back to School

August 19th 2019

Even though August is not quite over, parents, teachers and students are getting ready for back to school. With the beginning of school only a few weeks away, now is the time when families begin preparing for a new year of learning. At Los Rios Storage, located at 795 E Athabasca St in Kamloops, we know how exciting and stressful these next few weeks can be. If you are in need of self storage then we at Los Rios are here to help. Here are a few pointers for how a Kamloops storage unit can help make these next few weeks a little less stressful.

Put Away Summer Toys

Your summer may have been filled with outdoor fun that included items like bikes, water toys and more. Now that the season is coming to an end, or at least more of your free time during your summer break, this could be a good time to start putting some of these items away. The garage is a great spot for bikes and other outdoor toys but if you have larger items such as kayaks, tubes and other things that you used in the pool or on the lake, then a self storage unit might be a better option. Instead of trying to make room in the garage or storing them outside during the fall and winter, renting a well built and secure self storage locker from Los Rios Storage will help keep your summer toys in great shape for next summer.

Organizing Your Kids’ Bedrooms

If your kids are not the best at keeping their rooms clean during the carefree days of summer, then now is the time to get a head start on organizing everything before school starts. A desk piled high with toys and games isn’t a place for studying, so box it all up and bring it to your self storage unit! This is an easier solution rather than trying to fit everything into a closet beside new school and fall clothes.

Get School Supplies

Getting school supplies with your kids can be an absolute favourite part of getting ready for back to school, especially when you can get it done ahead of the rush. Helping your kids to pick out new pencils, binders and backpacks can be a lot of fun. Once you have everything they will need, it’s is a good time to organize it all for the first day of school. Knowing where everything is makes for a somewhat less stressful first day and possibly first week of school. If you have gently used school supplies from the previous school year, look for charities to donate them to. They can distribute them to those who may not be able to afford new supplies.
