It may seem far away but the end of the school year is almost here. If you’re a college student, it’s time to start figuring out your summer storage plans. If you’re living on campus or if you have off-campus housing, but don’t plan to stay in the area, then you’re going to need storage space soon. Box&Co can provide that storage space and we have a few tips on getting ready for the end of the school year.
How to Get Organized as the School Year Wraps Up
The end of the academic year is a busy time with exams and papers but you should make time for end of year prep. Collegiate Parent suggests that now is the time to make your travel arrangements, backup your computer, and to make sure you understand your school’s procedures for moving out at the end of the semester.
Once it’s time to move out, your first job will be to sort through your belongings. Ways to reduce the amount of storage and clutter include:
- Donate unwanted clothing
- Sell back unnecessary textbooks
- Return rented fridges and microwaves
But what about large items like bicycles, shelving units, or even your TV? That’s where Box&Co. comes in.
