Tips and tricks for home renovations and improvements.

Store Your Stuff with Zippy Shell During a Renovation!

Recently, a customer in the Piedmont Triad of North Carolina needed storage space for their office furniture during a home renovation. Our moving and storage professionals delivered the container to their home and helped load their furniture. The furniture was disassembled, wrapped and stored in a climate controlled environment in under 2 hours. We safely stored their items at our storage location until the end of the renovation. At the customer’s convenience, we delivered the furniture back to them, good as new. Zippy Shell made it so they could renovate their office without the hassle of trying to relocate their items temporarily.

10 Things You Should Get Rid of Right Now 

Clothing 

If you have gone over a year without wearing an item of clothing, donate it.  You may be saving it for that “one event” you could wear it to, but if it has gone this long without being worn the chances are it will never get worn.

Take-out Menus 

You can find almost any menu to your favorite restaurant online now, so recycle those old menus.

Games with missing pieces

You may still be able to play it, but it is not the same.  Get rid of it and play a game you can truly play.

Halloween Costumes

Your old costumes may have some sentimental value to you, but you can’t ever rewear it so they are just taking up space.

Paint 

It is hard to properly store paint.  So, if you have your old cans sitting in your garage with crusty paint on the lids, it is time to toss those.  Make sure you look up how to safely dispose of the cans before throwing them away.

Movies

If you really aren’t going to watch a DVD again, give it away or sell it.  It will just be collecting dust until then.

Formal Wear 

Items like a bridesmaid or prom dress were only meant to be worn the one time you wore them, and never again.  Help someone out and donate them or make some money by selling them.

Shoes

If any of your shoes have rips or holes, toss them right now.  If they are still good, but you can’t remember the last time you wore them, donate them to a thrift store.

Books

Be honest with yourself if you are ever going to reread that book that hasn’t moved off its shelf in years.  Donate it to someone who could enjoy it.

Makeup

Expired makeup can accumulate bacteria that is bad for your face and eyes.  Just because you think you will still use this makeup doesn’t mean you should.
