The Coronavirus has impacted everyone on a personal and professional level. No matter where you are, you know about the virus and have seen its impacts. Businesses close down, places for social gathering are all but abandoned, and people are told to stay inside – in some cases on legal order. This has been dubbed “social distancing,” because the fastest way to reduce the spread of the pandemic is to avoid vectors of contamination, AKA: other people.

In many cases, it means most are staying home for days, a week, or multiple weeks. For introverts, it’s more the same, but for

If you’re concerned about the COVID-19 virus especially, keeping your living space as clean as possible can help (or just reduce risk of getting sick in general).

This is a prime opportunity to think and list out areas of your living space you don’t actually get to clean

When we talk about storage at Mobile Attic, often it’s about electronics, personal items, clothing, and space management. But one of the most important things to store is also food.

If you’ve recently moved to a new place for the spring season, congrats! Also, after said move, you might be short on cash considering transitioning is costly. What adds to the ol’ wallet burner? Why, bills, specifically electric bills. Yes as spring comes around you might find yourself cranking the AC more often than not, and unfortunately this heavy use (among things) adds to the bill strain.

Mobile Attic is committed to easing you in any move transition, so we have some tips to help you cut back on power usage (among things).

As the new season rolls around, most take it upon themselves to start spring cleaning. Part of cleaning, however, isn’t only doing a scrub and sweep. In fact, an excellent way to declutter your living space is by using organization tools. Organizers make your inventory easy to access and grant extra space around the home. Also, it just feels better.

Mobile Attic has a recommended list for organizer products.

Door/Wall Racks

The walls and doors of your home are great places to install new spaces for items. Adjustable racks can be used for all sorts of things, from cleaning products to spices to

We at Mobile Attic talk a lot about the different ways you can move and store your things. But one category that often gets overlooked are hobbies, such as crafts and art. As any artist, trade person, or crafter can tell you, tools and materials are incredibly valuable. While some can be replaced, things like paint, for example, add up in cost. Therefore, they should be taken care of when stored or moved, just like anything else.

Mobile Attic is here to help with a few things to keep in mind when you’re moving or storing art supplies.

Often when I write for Mobile Attic it’s based on a variety of subjects involving storage and moving. This is a company that prides itself on helping others, whether personal or professional, and the topics reflect that. However, this time I’m taking a different direction.

Moving is tough, there’s no way around it. It requires planning, timing, and packing. It also requires money, and typically a good chunk of that. I myself made a major location transition a few years ago, and I was presented with a pretty difficult hurdle: I had no vehicle and was moving to an apartment two

As if moving from one place to another wasn’t hard enough! When transitioning into a new home, we’re already expecting a few issues. But there are plenty of common headaches that can be avoided, some dangerous to both person and finances. Be mindful of them if you’ve got a big transition coming up.

1 – Safety and Injury

When moving objects, heavy and otherwise, injury is a common issue for “do it yourself” movers. That’s either from dropped objects or difficulty lifting extremely heavy furniture.

Hire moving services to help with this, or take every precaution necessary before shifting heavy objects.

2 – Losing

Roommates provide an interesting living experience, and if you’ve never had them before, the concept can sound intimidating. That’s normal, of course, these are strangers you’ll have to get to know over the course of a year. Sometimes it works out, and sometimes it doesn’t. How we prepare ourselves and acclimate to the new environment will affect that.

Whether you’re a student or someone looking to cut down on rent, here’s a few things you might encounter when getting roommates, and what to prepare for.
