Taking Big Steps In Small Spaces

Moving_Pic_2Preparing to embark on your big college move, wherever that may be, can be quite stressful. There are new friends to meet, career decisions to make and a new campus to navigate. For many, one of the greatest challenges is figuring out how to cram an entire wardrobe into a small dorm room.

Ten pairs of jeans, four heavy coats, fifteen pairs of shoes, and so many pens and pencils that you can’t even keep track of. Does this list sound familiar? If so, then it might be wise to consider leaving the things that you absolutely do not need at home and cut down on all of the added fluff. A few main things that you do not want to pack are high school t-shirts with the logo and mascot colors. The same goes for prom and homecoming gowns. Many girls think that they will wear then for a special occasion, but in reality the gowns will end up just collecting dust in the small dorm closet.

Another area a new college student should avoid is redundancy. If you wish to bring a TV or a lamp, get in touch with your roommates and make sure they will not bring the same items in order to save space. Luckily for southern California students, packing snow boots and heavy snow jackets aren’t a concern at all. Even though you might have that extra space in your drawers and closet, consider saving that space for extra study materials and bedding.

In terms of safety for your valuables, consider investing in a small storage compartment that can be locked and slid under the bed. So when you are out of your dorm room, your laptop and important documents will be untouchable to sticky fingers. Some other important items to take that can be easily overlooked are; quarters for laundry, fold up portable hamper, shower caddy, small fan, flash drive, fist aid kit, trash can and power strip. Most of these items can be purchased either on campus or at a local store so you don’t have to use up any extra space in your boxes.

If storing remaining items that you cannot take with you cause concern, then consider storing your precious items with Camelot Moving and Storage. Camelot Moving and Storage offers safe, clean, short and long-term safekeeping of household items in a climate controlled space. Also, the storage units are made of cement, which is more durable and able to withstand various types of weather.

“The Environment tends to be more stable,” said Billy Kornfeld owner of Camelot Moving and Storage.
