Are the Riders Hoarding Their Stuff?

There’s nothing like a Saskatchewan Roughrider streak to get a person going…Come on boys, let’s win one for Gainer! Speaking of gophers, did you know that they are famous hoarders?

Zen HoarderWhich had us reflect on the value of hoarding. Some folks would view hoarding as chronic disorganization. The fact that you can’t find where you put your keys or cell phone down is no worry. In fact, it’s just the sign you needed to go find some more space for yer junk (whoops…treasure).

At SaskWatch Storage we’d love to help you out and make a bit of free space for you at home or in the garage. No shame in this approach.

We’re conveniently located along Hwy 1 and provided safe, secure storage. It’s Easy Access to your stuff when you need it. Give our manager a call at 306-630-2526 and set up a time to check us out. No obligation.

All the best…here’s hoping for a “W” from our boys in August…Stop hoarding the wins!

Self Storage in Moose Jaw Gives A Hoot

Canada DayIt’s Canada Day in Moose Jaw shortly and at SaskWatch Storage we’d like to do a shout out to our neighbours and hopefully you’ll be able to stop in and see them too.

The Saskatchewan Burrowing Owl Interpretive Centre (SBOIC) was created to help promote the conservation of the endangered Burrowing Owl and their prairie habitat through education, stewardship and eco-tourism. The Centre opened its gates to the public for the first time in the spring of 1997.

SBOIC_Moose_Jaw_self_storageOur facility, along with much of Moose Jaw, is built on “owl habitat” and this is why we’d like you to help support their cause this Canada Day. Take a few minutes and stop in to say hi and learn more about these owls and how you may be able to help them out.

Speaking of habitat, if you are finding your own habitat to be getting a wee bit cluttered, give our manager a call and come check out our units for rent. We’d love to earn your business because we give a hoot 🙂

There’s No Place Like Home…Spring Clearing Tips

Moose Jaw Mini StorageAt SaskWatch Storage we really love how Dorothy and Toto have taken to self storage in Moose Jaw 🙂

Now that warmer spring weather is just around the corner, we thought it would be a good idea to share a few more Storage Tips as you do a little Spring Cleaning around the house and make the most out of your mini storage unit.

Boxes:
Free stuff is always great! There’s no better place to get your boxes than to ask around the local business community. Often you can get sturdy boxes for free from places such as the liquor store, simply by asking.

Remember, pick out uniform-sized boxes to help with the stacking and keep things stable…especially if you do not have any shelves to put things onto.

Do your best to maximize the capacity of each box. Do not overfill or under fill them, as this will affect your stability and stacking process.

Plastic Bins:
This is a trend that we have certainly seen with our customers. More and more people are using plastic bins that are pre-formed for stacking.

Clear ones offer a convenient look inside at the contents. If you are using regular plastic bins, be sure to clearly label the ends (both of them) so that it is easy to re-locate your stuff.

organized-storage-roomLastly, be careful not to overpack them with heavy items like books as this is difficult to more around. If you have the time, make a list of key items in each box and label it. Keep this list at home and printed out. It’s really handy if you ever have to send someone else in to pick something up for you.

These are great for storage units without climate control as they help prevent moisture and dust from getting into your stuff.

When packing fragile items into your boxes or bins, don’t be afraid to grad some dish towels or clothing to wrap them up. This will help protect things from getting damaged or broken during the move in/ out phase.

Finally, as this is a “Spring Clean Up” blog post, don’t be afraid to get rid of the things you don’t need anymore. Donate to local charity, family or friends, hold a garage sale, or simply chuck it. Give yourself a break and stop packing around the things that you don’t need anymore 🙂

All the best and have a wonderful March!

Make Your New Year’s Resolution to De-clutter with Moose Jaw Mini Storage

Moose_Jaw_Ministorage_Messy_garage

The Christmas and New Year’s Holiday season is another wrap and now you could be looking at a garage like this…Holy Crap!  Why not make your New Year’s resolution this year to de-clutter and claim back your garage!

Bring your seasonal items over to SaskWatch Storage in Moose Jaw. Our mini storage is conveniently located off of Highway #1 and we have a range of unit sizes to best meet your needs.

Now that you have your space back at home, it sure will be nice to park your vehicle in the garage again and not have to scrape windows…now that’s peace of mind!

Here’s a couple of handy tips to consider when packing up your stuff:
1. Put in Shelves to take advantage of the vertical space in your unit
2. Label all of your boxes clearly and face the label outward so that they can be read easily
3. Leave a PATH to the back of your unit. This allows you to come by at any time and retrieve or leave items in your unit.

Once again, Happy New Year and all the best to you and your loved ones in 2015!
