Save Valuable Dorm Space

Dorm rooms aren’t exactly known for their spaciousness and vast storage options. Moving into a dorm room will quickly make you realize what is critical and what things you don’t really need on a daily basis. But, just because you don’t use something on a daily basis or it doesn’t fit into your dorm room does not mean that it isn’t valuable! Rather than being forced to sell something you love or find a way to cram it into your already space-challenged dorm room, place some things in a self-storage unit. Self-storage units allow you to keep more without filling up your dorm room from floor to ceiling. Simply keep the things you don’t have room for or won’t need right away at one of our professional and secure storage facilities. Then, when you’re back from college, everything you love will be waiting for your next adventure.

Respect Your Parent’s Space

One option that students choose when going off to college and living in a dorm room or small apartment is to leave their things at their parent’s house while they’re off at school. While this might be alright for some, it’s probably a safe bet that your parents don’t love all of their storage space and rooms being taken up by someone who isn’t even there. Instead of treating your parents’ home as a personal storage unit, it’s worth considering self-storage units at Starkville Mini Storage!

Store Holiday Decorations

We’ve already established that most college students don’t necessarily have an abundance of extra space. So, one of the first things that seem to are the holiday decorations. While they aren’t essential and aren’t used year-round by most people, they are still fun and a mood-enhancing aesthetic to have available to you! Rather than hucking holiday decorations since you don’t have room for them at school, keep them safe and ready to celebrate with a self-storage unit!

Store Off-Season Clothing

This benefit is mostly for the ladies (or gentlemen) with expansive wardrobes. Average amounts of clothing don’t really take up too much space. After all, even the smallest of dwellings have closets and room for a dresser. But, if you are a passionate fashionista, you may have far more clothes than you can reasonably fit into your small living quarters at school. When this happens, fashionistas have a few options: they could sell off some of their clothing (which we suspect would practically kill them) or they could store off-season clothing in a secure, temperature-controlled self-storage unit at Starkville Mini Storage! Then, when seasons change, swap out your clothing for the next season and safely store the out-of-season clothing you won’t need for a bit. It’s foolproof!

Keep Items You Want to Save

Last but not least, there are certain items, furniture, and other things that you’ll want to keep but may not be able to bring with you. Whether it be a kitchen table you want in your future home, a family heirloom that you’d love your future children to have, or whatever it may be, rather than having to find a kind relative to help you out, you could invest in a self-storage unit. That way, you can keep your treasured items that you want for the future but may not have the space to accommodate for at time being.
