The value of the service of our country’s military service people and their families can never be overstated. The sacrifice that they make on a day-to-day and year-to-year basis is a debt that we could never repay. When considering military service, most people’s thoughts naturally go to combat. While that is certainly a big part of the sacrifice made by our military, we often forget the lives that they left behind. Specifically, the families that are waiting for them to come home. The practical issues that arise from having a spouse or significant other deployed are seemingly never-ending, especially for families that have kids. One of those issues is storage, as military families are often asked to relocate and move. In today’s blog post, Affordable Family Storage will talk about how storage space can help ease the burden on military families.
The demands that military families must endure are different for each individual family. Some families are able to stay at home as their service person is deployed. Other families are asked to move constantly as their service person is stationed. However, each context is still demanding and, especially of families with children, asks a lot of the parent staying behind.
Having a storage space allows for families to declutter their house and helps to carry some of the weight of not having their spouse or significant other at home. They are also helpful for when their service person is at home, as it provides a safe and secure place for any equipment or gear to be stored when it isn’t currently needed.
Traveling military families often experience greater difficulties because they often have to deal with a family member being deployed as well as dealing with being in a new city or town. Families that deal with this understand what they have signed up for, and one solution to constantly moving can be a proper storage space. While you want your house to be a home regardless of where you go, it can be time saving and more efficient to leave certain things in a storage space when you move. That way you have all of your belongings safely stowed away, but you don’t have to worry about moving them in each and every time.
For example, if you move into a new house in August and are looking at the fall and winter months ahead, you may want to store the family above ground pool in a storage space. Rather than have it taking up space in your garage or yard, keeping it in a storage space gives you flexibility, just in case you have to relocate again before summer comes around.
