Simplifying Your Storage Unit

After I started using my storage unit year-round, I realized that I needed to clean the place up. There were boxes everywhere, which made it really frustrating to find the things that I needed. My disorganized space also caused damage, since things got crushed and stepped on whenever I tried to find things. It took a lot of work, but I decided to take an entire weekend and simplify my space. I removed all of my belongings and then sorted, labeled, and reorganized all of my boxes. When I was finished, my space was clean, tidy, and easy to use. Read here to learn how to simplify your storage unit.

3 BIG Mistakes To Avoid When Moving With An Older Indoor Dog


Moving is a stressful event for everyone in the house, from the parents to the kids--and even right down to your four-legged best friend. If you have a puppy that you have kept as an indoor pet, chances are the move will not be such a big deal to him. However, as the old saying goes: You can't teach an old dog new tricks, and when you try to take an old dog from his usual routine and usual home, he's probably not going to take to kindly to that either. To make sure you don't make moving with your aging pooch more stressful than it should be, there are three BIG mistakes to avoid in the process.

1. Don't let moving day be the first time your pooch sees his new digs.

Well before the day that you intend to stay the first night at your new place, your indoor doggy should have already been introduced. If you just show up at some strange house that he has never seen or smelled before, he is more likely to be anxious and nervous. Try to take your pet along with you to visit the new place a few times before you make that final trip.

2. Don't allow your dog to be hanging around during the major moving process at your current house. 

Here you are with strange people running in and out of the house, making a lot of racket, and taking away all of the things that smell and look familiar to your senior canine. Through his eyes, this entire ordeal will no doubt be pretty disconcerting. Consider keeping your pooch tucked away in a quiet place in a back room, at a pet sitter for the day, or even at a pet boarding facility for a few hours while the household movers are working.

3. Don't disregard your pet's need for familiarity at the new house.

Before you make that last trip to the new house with your doggy, set him up a space filled with familiar items from the old house. His doggy bed, food trays, toy container and favorite toys, and even a few furniture items should be set up and waiting for him to arrive. Seeing the familiar objects at the new place will leave your dog much calmer about being in a strange location. Additionally, avoid leaving your dog completely alone in the new place for several hours after you arrive.
