When it comes to self-storage units, most people think about storing away some of their unused items, such as clothes they’ve outgrown, books they’ve read a dozen times, or furniture they’ve replaced with updated pieces. Although many people use storage units to store away items they don’t need in their home right now, there are dozens of other ways to use these units. Many individuals have used their creative minds to come up with some fantastic ways to utilize these units.  See the guide below from storage company, Bluebox Storage.

Use It as a Gym

If you’ve ever gone to your local gym, there are times when it’s probably so crowded that you’re stuck waiting around for one of the machines. If you’re tired of waiting and you want to exercise freely, create your own gym and bring some equipment to the storage unit and use it when you have the time. It’s a great place to exercise because it’s quiet, peaceful, and private. You won’t even have to worry about people watching you while you’re trying to exercise.

Practice Your Music

Do you play an instrument? Whether you’re in a band or not, you may want to have a quiet place of your own to practice what you’re playing, such as a guitar, clarinet, or even the drums. If you can’t usually practice when you’re at home because of the noise these instruments make, you can come over to the storage unit facility and start playing inside of the storage unit. Many people are already doing this because it gives them a chance to practice their instruments for as long as they want to without disturbing anyone else.

Play Some Games

Would you like to get out of the house? Do you want to play some of your favorite games? If so, you can come to the storage unit and play inside of the unit with your friends. You may have a collection of board games or card games you’d like to play in private.

Some people like to invest in arcade machines. If you’re someone who loves arcade games and you would like to buy some of them but are worried about not having enough space, you can always choose to store your arcade games at the storage unit facility.

Use It For Business

Struggling to get enough work done while at home? If you need a quiet place to focus, you can use a storage unit as a small office where you can get a lot of work done and stay productive. Many people spend too much money renting out office spaces, but you can save by choosing to use a storage unit as your temporary and convenient office space.

You can even use the storage unit to store some of your inventory if necessary. You may be running out of space inside the home, but you’d be able to use the storage unit to store boxes of items you’re planning to sell in the near future.…

Are you thinking of holding an office party?  Your primary objective is to create an environment where your co-workers stop talking about work and start interacting as friends. Check out this guide on how to make it successful.

1) Location, Location, Location!

Decide where you want to hold the office party. Ask yourself if you have the budget to have it at an outside venue. Or maybe, financially it makes more sense to hold it in office.

For a Christmas party, you may want to hire a venue in London.

For larger, grander events a fancier location may be in order. There are plenty of hotels, museums, or other nice buildings that are equipped to hold events. For events that are smaller look into renting a room at a pub or even a village hall. Use google as your aid to find great locations.

2) Choose Your Date

It is important to fix your date as early as possible. This will give people notice so they do not have to rearrange their schedules. It will also give you a better shot at getting your preferred venue.

Choosing a date can be especially hard with a large group of people. It may be easiest to work with your venue and come up with a couple of dates. You can then ask people to vote on the date that works best for them.

3) Invitations

Now that the venue and date are secured it is time to notify your guests. Sometimes a “save the date” email is a good way to have people initially put the event on their calendar. You can then follow it up with a formal invitation. Or, simply send the invitations with all the details out immediately.

4) Pick The Theme

This step is very important. It sets the stage for the entire party. Some popular themes are “under the sea” or “Paris.” Whatever you decide or whatever you decide with your party planner make sure to pick something that will be sure to attract your guest.

After you pick the theme it’s time to start planning the details. It is a good idea to make a list of all the decorations you will need and get shopping!

5) Pick The Menu

A good menu will make a good party. 2-3 months before the event you need to start thinking about whether you need a caterer or what kind of food you would like to serve. Talk with your venue to see if they have an in-house catering company or a preferred caterer.

When you are planning the menu, it is important to make sure to know if there are any special food allergies or requirements. For instance, you should always have a vegetarian option, and maybe even a vegan dish. It is important to make your guests feel taken care of even if they have special food requests.

Caterers can be a great tool for a party. They will give you ideas or even present you …
