Putting the “Keep” in Family Keepsakes with Self Storage

Your family’s keepsakes represent your individual and collective histories. As much as you may want to keep those cherished items front-and-center, there’s rarely enough room to display everything in the average home. Give your prized belongings the respect they deserve by placing them with care in long-term self storage. With facilities in Streetsboro, OH and other locations around the state of Ohio, Storage Zone has storage units to meet your household’s needs.

Digital Preservation

Whether it’s time to de-clutter or you’re just looking to organize your family’s treasures for safekeeping, remind everyone that they don’t need to keep everything. The digital age offers the opportunity to preserve memories without keeping physical tokens. Excess paper items ranging from greeting cards to theme park and concert ticket stubs can be scanned and kept on your computer.

Tell Your Story

Each memento has a story. Document it and attach it to the item, or put it in digital form. Once you’ve edited your belongings and paired it with its story, have each family member choose from a variety of boxes to decorate and place their souvenirs and items inside. Personalizing your boxes provides easier access to clippings, awards, and family heirlooms. Making a family activity of the decorating process makes it an experience to remember in itself.

Proper Keepsake Storage

If you don’t have an alcove or other area in your home for storing your scrapbooks and other keepsakes, self storage could be the answer. Once you’ve secured a unit, take care to store your items properly. Carve out a niche dedicated just to these special belongings. Ensure that any fragile items are adequately padded, and store lighter boxes on top of heavier ones. An aisle down the center of the unit allows easy access to all your belongings, including those truly special ones.
