A lot of University students in the city are breathing a sigh of relief as their exam schedules and school year's are winding down. As the school term comes to an end, many will be returning home to work throughout the ''off season''. For these students the question now becomes what do I do with

out of your school space and all the way back home where there may not be adequate room to
accommodate these items used while attending classes.

When you decide to place your home on the real estate market, it is important to have it looking its best at all times. Professional home-stagers have come on the scene to give homeowners advice on how to make their home more appealing to buyers.
The first tip from these professionals is to de-clutter your home. Remove as much unnecessary furniture and household items as possible, to give it a more spacious feel. This also enables potential buyers to see the home, and not all of your stuff!
Many home stagers also provide furniture that can enhance the look of your home, especially when many homes today are videoed and available on the internet.
The trouble with removing items from your home is that you will need a place to store them in the meantime. Since no one can predict how long your home will be on the market, this is a potential and stressful dilemma.
Self-storage with StorageVille can solve both these problems. You can rent the amount of space you need to co ..
StorageVille has become quite a fan of A&E's Storage Wars, for so many reasons. The quirky auction participants and bidders, the excitement is watching others discover real treasure, and also the competitiveness of this new-found sport.
After today, there is another reason to love this show! Can you believe they have made an interactive online game to guess what the contents of a locker are, aptly named "What'$ it Worth?"
Online participants can engage in a trivial drag & drop approach to estimating different items' worth. As long as your boss isn't around, you could give it a shot at work. You may be surprised at your skills!
It's been a few months since StorageVille had a storage unit auction, and we are hoping to have another this Spring. The response was great and Winnipeggers are such bargain hunters, this sport most definitely fits into many people's mindsets.
For a car, inactivity can do just as much damage as it does for us people! Damage of nearly every kind can occur from just sitting, such as rotting rubber, mildew development, rust, engine parts can seize , and batteries can go dead.
Here's how to prevent this from happening to your car:
1. Give your classic a good detailing. Wash all road grime and salts from the undercarriage as well as body parts. Give the entire car a good wax.
2. Once your vehicle is ready to be parked for the winter, change or drain all related fluids, especially while the car is still warm.
3. Drain the fuel tank if you are going to store your car for more than six months. Once you have drained the tank, start the engine and run the rest of the gas out of the lines. Old gas will clog carburetors. If you only store your car for a few months, you can just add gasoline stabilizer to delay deterioration.
4. Drain the cooling sy ..

Some people like to begin their spring cleaning in the kitchen. The kitchen is the room that is usually used the most in a home. It is where your meals are prepared and keeping it clean and organized is a priority. Even though you may clean your kitchen daily, you still need to do that once a year deep clean that reaches the bottom of every drawer and the back of every one of the shelves.
For your kitchen spring cleaning, plan to empty every drawer and every shelf and wipe them clean. As you begin to put things back in place, take time to reconsider where things are being stored. Is there a deep drawer that you are always digging through to find things? Are all your baking pans together in one place? Perhaps moving some items to different areas will make your kitchen easier to work in.
Don’t forget to go through the items in your food pantry during your cleaning as well. Check for expiration dates. Throw out anything that is old. Reorganize this area too so that you can ..
With the snow melting and the weather beginning to warm, it is easy to get into the mood for spring cleaning. It is amazing how some sunshine and spring temperatures can motivate you to get things done.
In spite of our enthusiasm to get going on our spring cleaning, we can easily get bogged down in the immensity of the task. Where do I start, when every area of the house is in need of de-cluttering and deep cleaning?
The place to start is by simply sitting down and mapping out a plan. Make a list of the things that need to be done: Rooms and closets to be cleaned, packing away winter wear, window screens, carpet cleaning, window coverings. Determine which room will be your starting point and then make your list in the order in which you plan to accomplish your tasks. It’s amazing how empowered you can feel by simply having created that plan of action.
Next determine your plan of attack on your rooms. Always begin with the closets or storage spaces. It will be diffi ..
