If your family is anything like mine was, your car NEVER saw the inside of the garage. The metal exterior shivered in the freezing cold, wondering how existence was without the bitter wind coursing through its tailpipe. Easy mornings (without having to defrost the windshield) may be motivation enough to clean out the garage, but sometimes you just need that extra kick. Introducing that extra kick. Numerous studies have shown that, when given a complicated task, it is more easily tackled when the complexity is broken down into fun, bite-sized pieces. It allows you to think about each stepping stone

Everything about your move is going smoothly. You look on your work with an acute satisfaction, gazing across the sea of cardboard and bubble wrap, eager to look on your new kingdom. That wardrobe bowed to your rule and that huge pile of clothing could do nothing but submit itself to your superior packing knowledge. Suddenly, you hear a strange noise from the kitchen. It is the subtle hum of some horrible beast with breath like ice and the stature of a giant. The noise grows louder and louder until it is all you can think about. It is joined

As if you didn’t have enough to worry about, moving can be a dangerous task. Not like swimming overnight off the coast of the Australia dangerous, but enough where planning and mindfulness will benefit you. We are not quite at the age where we can make robots lug around our jam-packed boxes, while carrier drones transport the storage container to the new location. Think of this like you would the cautionary lessons in Science class where the teacher would spend two hours trying to get you to wear safety goggles. After your entire school career, I bet you still smelled

You spend your entire life accumulating things that represent the ebb and flow of your existence; styles and interests pass on and on like the waves of the ocean, some dying as they come crashing into the shores of time while others flow out into the middle of the ocean to capsize some poor fishing vessel of self-awareness. Interesting metaphors aside, these things represent your temporal life. The timeline of your soul, in a sense. In that way, decluttering can be a stressful affair. Fortunately, you don’t have to trash all your belongings for your move (Mobile Attic is here

The rain; it makes us sleepy or dreary, but happens to be a miracle for the plant-life. What I’m getting at is that it’s all a frame of mind. Instead of seeing it as the end of days, firmament-piercing floods that comes to wreak havoc on your outdoor activities, cozy up with some rom-coms, enjoy the drops hitting the roof, and thank the stars that we don’t build our shelters out of mud and hay anymore. In the same way, rain doesn’t have to ruin your move in day; it certainly is a setback, but with some adjustment, you can

So, you’ve decided to put your home on the market. You’ve already got this plan in your head that will make your move the easiest, most streamlined process (with the help of the Mobile Attic, of course). With a local storage solution out of the way, the next step would be…to sell the house. Simple enough, right? Then you hire a realtor and sit down for a conversation, the overwhelming smell of lavender-scented perfume filling your nose. She says with a gleeful lipstick smile, “We need to prepare your home for staging.” That hits you like a ton of bricks.

Let me start things off by saying that I love South Carolina. I love the greenery, the wholehearted acceptance of delicious fried foods and the historical cities that make the Palmetto state memorable. There is a trade-off, though. To have all this beauty and quaint disregard for proper nutrition, we must have humidity and scorching summers; it’s how the universe stays in balance. Chances are you are not willing/not planning to move to the desolate environment that is Antarctica (biggest desert on the planet; fun fact), though it would be a nice change of pace to have a group of

You are the weary traveler, blowing into town from some unknown place, looking for that one special abode to rest your head. The stresses of the move are behind you, but the struggles of being new in town are only just beginning. You are not just moving away from your home, but your school district, social circle, and that awesome Chinese restaurant that made the fried rice just how you like it. On the fortunate side, you don’t have to look for a self storage facility with Mobile Attic at your back (the local storage looks like it hasn’t seen

The movie watching experience is an American pastime that has long surpassed baseball, along with pretty much everything else that may be considered a pastime. It is like going into a pocket dimension, entirely separate from the toils of everyday life. The darkened theatre eliminates your understanding of time and the sound-proofing cuts you off from the persistent honks of the caffeine-deprived motorists, unhinged by the subpar service at the local coffee joint. The soda is overpriced, but you need to cut down on that high fructose garbage anyway. It is all part of the enjoyment, the fact that you

Imagine it with me. You are enjoying the great outdoors; limitless expanses of green, sprinkled with the swaying yellow of jessamine. Being the springtime, the air is in motion so that the hottest part of the day is still relieved by a sudden gust. The song of the birds compliment your existence and the bees waive their goodbyes on their route to some distant hive. Feeling liberated from your body, you feel that nothing can interfere with this timeless sensation until…you look down at your arms to see bloated, red splotches that pulsate and cry out into the limitless blue
