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

The most effective part of a well-executed move is the carefully devised plan. Easier said than done! If only it could be like the movies where y there is a short montage in which you and your family pull up GPS coordinates, astrological maps and sort through volumes of tomes dedicated to successful moves before meeting back up to compile the great plan on college rule, gold-finished, laminated paper with those cutesy designs you always see on Instagram. If you are anything like me, you would fast forward through even the montage. I get it. Not fun at all. Fortunately,

It is a simple, happy day in your home. The weather has been sort of iffy, but it is warm and sunny other days. You decide to get a head start on spring cleaning because the mood just seems right, but there is a sinister feel in the air. You slowly move back your wardrobe, feeling the behemoth pull against the carpet as your anxiety rises. There you see it. The fungal invaders have made a home on your eggshell white wall, feasting on the dust that collected over the year. The disk represents something menacing; some sort of unwelcome

Mom and Dad always said “never judge a book by its cover”, but they most certainly didn’t have houses in mind. It is basic human nature to make snap judgments on things through our first impressions. Numerous studies have shown that, when interacting with others, people throw out this virtue unconsciously like last week’s Chinese food. The tendency is to make an initial judgment call and then work all other impressions so that they match, or are at least in line with, the first. Whether staging your home or just sprucing it up for bragging rights, curb appeal is so
