Get Your Hobby On in Corvallis

Here in Corvallis, many residents enjoy a wide range of hobbies, such as collecting radio-controlled aircraft, hiking and building cabins. Furthermore, hundreds of enthusiasts regularly construct and repair model trains in the area, and during each summer, the city hosts several events that let hobbyists exhibit their model trains. As the New Year begins, maybe it’s time to pick up a new hobby. Northwest Self Storage has outlined some pastimes that might just catch your fancy.

Utilizing Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

Currently, seven stores in Corvallis sell UAVs, and numerous nearby universities are evaluating cutting-edge devices that will allow unmanned aerial vehicles to withstand extreme weather conditions and to fly continuously for more than three hours. Many products also feature state-of-the-art cameras that can record videos of the beautiful forests that surround Corvallis, Oregon.

Several analyses have shown that sales of UAVs will likely increase by more than 35 percent during the next five years. To accommodate new enthusiasts, some of the area’s storage companies have created climate-controlled units for UAVs because excess heat and high levels of humidity may damage certain electrical components or built-in screens.

Building Model Trains

The city contains eight shops that sell model trains, and some businesses provide couplers, handrails that consist of brass, model doors, rivets, small brake systems, miniature lamps, whistles and walkways for the roofs of boxcars. Enthusiasts commonly place roadbeds and durable connectors in storage units because some of the city’s model railroads are only active during the winter months. Moreover, hobbyists can store sets of tracks that consist of nickel, steel or brass in local storage units.

Constructing Cabins

During the last eight years, more than 80 cabins have been built in Benton County, and according to several reports, many of these structures feature small fireplaces, foundations that contain steel, patios, steps and attics. Additionally, approximately 5 percent of the area’s cabins have relatively sizable decks. If you’re ready for a big challenge that you can enjoy, this might just be the project for you. Not only will you get to enjoy the process, but you’ll be enjoying your hard work for years to come.

Hiking

Corvallis is close to numerous sizable forests and parks like Siuslaw National Forest, Willamette National Forest and the Ochoco National Forest. Many travelers climb Mount Hood, which has a height of more than 11,250 feet, and every year, approximately 8,000 individuals scale Diamond Peak.

The city contains a sizable section of the Willamette River, which flows northward and features hundreds of boat ramps. According to numerous reports, approximately 22,000 people enjoy kayaking in the Willamette River per year.

Regular hikers place their equipment in units be sure that it’s kept safe and secure. This includes items such as belay devices, kayaks, sizable tents, generators of all types, slings and harnesses. Moreover, there is even storage to park your RV in a secure lot that features 24/7 cameras and protective canopies.

Don’t Let Your Hobby Take Over Your Home

Hobbies are a great way to pass time and add value to your life, but they should never take over your home. If you feel yourself drowning in clutter or supplies, it’s time to check out your local Northwest Storage facility. Not only will you be creating more storage in your home, but you’ll also have a safe and secure place to keep all the items you cherish. Contact us today to find the unit that will work for you.

How to Create More Storage in Your Dorm Room

Creative use of the limited space in your dorm room can make the time you spend there more enjoyable. Luckily with the help of some rearranging, organization strategies, and a nearby storage unit, you’ll be saving room in no time.

Use Space Over and Under Your Bed

Above and below your bed are two of the most useful and also underused places in your room. Boots, heavy coats and school sweatshirts keep you comfy in Centralia, Washington, but try storing them under your bed for easy access and convenience. Under the bed storage units hide out-of-season clothes and bedding, and you can make the space larger with bed risers.

A rack that fits over the head or foot of your bed has adjustable shelves for books, your laptop and storage boxes. It can hold nearly 200 pounds, and it is a handy place to store items that you need every day without taking up any floor space.

Capturing Door Space

An over-the-door organizer lets you use wasted space to hold your makeup, jewelry, snacks or bathroom essentials. A door also provides a great place to store your shoes in a hanging organizer. Check out the store selection to pair with exactly what you want to hide away, because there are usually many options available.

Putting Wall Space to Use

No matter how small the floor space of a dorm room, each one has eight-foot walls that you can use for creative storage. Turn a shower caddy into a rack for your notebooks, keys and class schedule. Suspend a container for your pens so that you never have to look for one again.

Affix a cell phone holder to your wall without marring the paint or creating a hole by using hooks that have a peel off sticker. These are also great for holding your umbrella, headphones, scissors or a tote. Anything that weighs less than 10 pounds can easily be used with these adhesive hooks.

Creating Style with Sneaky Space Savers

You can hang chair pockets on the back of your desk chair for a place to store your calculator, notebooks, water, snacks and markers while also giving your chair a colorful accent. Make the space that your nightstand occupies more valuable by using cubes that stack. Doors on the cubes open conveniently so that you can reach your ring binders, laptop, term paper or any clutter that you want to hide.

Getting organized also means de-cluttering, and when you don’t have the space to store items in your dorm room, it’s time to check out your local Northwest Self Storage location. Let self storage take care of your room so you can focus on school.

Take Your Christmas Decorations to the Next Level

Holiday season in Vancouver, Washington is truly the most wonderful time of the year. Everyone adorns their homes with lights, garland and Christmas spirit. You’ve decorated the inside of your home with festive displays, but what about the outside of your home? If you are looking for a fun way for you and your family to take your Christmas decorating to the next level, a front yard display is a great way to let that Christmas cheer overflow.

If you’re feeling overwhelmed by the number of options to create your own unique front yard display, Northwest Self Storage has a few tips to help you get started.

Family Fun

Involving the whole family is a great place to start. Get everybody together and ask for suggestions. Maybe each family member can have a portion of the yard for their own decorations, or the whole family can collaborate to create a themed display. If you decide to let each family member create their own little yard display, give them a shopping budget and some established guidelines. If your family wants to work together on a themed display, get the kids to help you draw out a picture of what they want the front yard to look like. There may be some great ideas in those pictures. If your family is especially crafty, you may even consider creating your own homemade displays.

Let the Cheer Inside Overflow

If neither of those options strike your fancy, why not start with what’s inside your home? Are you a color-coordinated Christmas decorator, or do you like a little bit of everything hodgepodged together? Whatever your unique style, it would be a great place to start when crafting a front yard display. If you like eccentric, fun Christmas decorations, then consider investing in some lighted inflatables and glittery, colorful lights. If you prefer an elegant Christmas, try some simple, well-placed white lights and a few tastefully-lit reindeer.

Post-Holiday Cheer

You may be concerned about what to do with all of your extra outdoor decorations once the holidays have passed. If a lack of safe and convenient storage has stopped you from creating a beautiful Christmas display in the past, let this be the year to do something. Self storage facilities are a secure and simple way to pack away those displays year to year.

This holiday season, don’t be afraid to go overboard with your decorations. Investing in self storage gives you the peace of mind to live your Christmas decorating dreams out in real life. Contact your local Northwest Storage facility today to find the unit for you.

Greening the Holidays with the Troutdale Champion

The holidays are right around the corner. Like other residents of Troutdale, Oregon, you’re probably already making plans for the season. While you’re at it, why not look for ways to reduce your impact on the environment during this special time of year? Local storage facilities can help a lot by giving you a place to temporarily store unneeded things instead of pitching them. Lay the groundwork now by investigating storage companies that can accommodate your needs during the holidays, and put the space to good use by keeping these tips in mind:

  • Buy an Artificial Tree – If you don’t already have one, buy an artificial tree. Better still, purchase a used one. Either way, you’ll be able to use it again and again. In between, store it at a nearby Northwest storage facility to ensure it’s in tip-top shape when the holidays roll around again.
  • Use LED Lights – If you must light up your home, swap those old strands for energy-efficient LED lights. They last up to 10 times longer than regular bulbs, and they use 1/3 to 1/30 as much energy as CFLs and incandescent bulbs. Therefore, you will use less energy to add holiday cheer, and you won’t have to buy new lights for a long time.
  • Ditch the Wrapping Paper – Most wrapping paper is very difficult to recycle because of its high clay and low paper content. Use fabric, newspaper and other materials instead. If you still have a lot of gift wrap from other holiday seasons, go ahead and use it. Store whatever you don’t use with Troutdale, Oregon storage companies until next year.
  • Use Your Own Shopping Bags – Do as much of your shopping online as you can. When you must shop locally, use reusable shopping bags. Keep a decent supply in the trunk of your car to ensure you always have them when you need them.
  • Hit Thrift Stores for Gifts – Give old items a new lease on life by doing some of your Christmas shopping at thrift stores and second-hand shops. This is a great way to find truly unique items for everyone from children to grandparents. It’s also a great way to save a little cash.
  • Reuse Your Decorations – Skip the cheap, throwaway decorations from the dollar store and invest in higher quality, reusable ones instead. Better still, shop local thrift stores for decorations; there are usually plenty available as the holidays approach.

Doing your part to save the planet should be a year-round effort. A lot of waste is generated during the holidays, but bucking the trend is easy enough. By implementing the tips above and using a storage facility to keep items out of harm’s way until next year, you’ll generate less waste and have an easier time this upcoming holiday season. Check out your local Northwest Self Storage facility today and start greening your holiday.

How to Build a Library in Your Home

Whether you’re driving to nearby Portland to attend Wordstock – Portland’s premier literary festival – or down the road to the Hillsboro public library, the month of November is all about celebrating the literary world. Known as Novel Writing Month and with Book Lover’s Day right around the corner, we’d like to take the time to help you make that spare bedroom into your own personal library. As a book lover, we know you celebrate your love of books all year! Why not create the library of your dreams with the help of Northwest Self Storage? We’ve got the steps to get you started!

Step 1: Pick Your Room

Finding the ideal room for your home library is the first step. Make sure to choose a room that experiences low traffic and is in a peaceful atmosphere. Also, there are certain rooms in the house that may experience more exposure to temperature fluctuations or elements that are harmful to books. Pick a room that has a regulated temperature, free of any exposure to moisture. Windows are another consideration; while windows can brighten things up, they can also take valuable wall space for shelving, or allow UV rays that fade the covers of books. One or two windows max helps create a good atmosphere, but make sure you have at least one full wall (no doors or windows breaking up the wall space). Ensure your window is equipped with curtains for the daytime.

Step 2: Clear Your Clutter

Once you’ve chosen your room, it’s time to make the space ready for an overhaul. Chances are it wasn’t just sitting empty, and old furniture or stored belongings are definitely not beneficial to your library space. Sort through the clutter and decide what’s worth keeping, tossing, and storing. Items that you use on a regular basis clearly have a place in the home, but anything broken, damaged, or old can be tossed. Donate or sell gently used items that you no longer want. Items that are infrequently used – or not used at all – can be moved to a nearby storage unit. Northwest Self Storage is the ideal location for things that don’t have a place in your home, but you can’t bear to part with. And climate controlled storage options keep belongings protected from moisture in the Oregon air.

Step 3: Plan Your Theme

With the space cleared and ready to be filled with books, now is the perfect time to pick a theme and feel for your room. Consider this a blank canvas, ready for you to put your personality into it. Do you want a world traveler’s study, or a psychedelic pad? Are you planning for a comfy recliner, or do you prefer piles of pillows for seating? This is the time to make it your own. Once you’ve chosen a theme you can start gathering the items that fit it best, including shelves.

Step 4: Set Up “Shop”

Now that you have your space and your furniture ready, it’s time to put it all together. Feel free to lay out a plan for your furniture before you move it in, or play around with the set up if that’s more your style. Use wall shelving to make the most of your vertical space, and lone standing shelves for a classic library feel. Pick lighting that is warm for comfortable hours of reading. Organize your books with a system that makes the most sense to you, whether that be by author or genre.

Step 5: Leave Room for Growth

Don’t feel the need to cram all your shelves completely full – or choose just the right amount of shelving for the amount of books you currently have. As a book lover, you’re collection and library is bound to grow. Plan ahead and leave room for that growth. Maybe even have a special shelf for new books that are on your list to read!

Oregon is full of people who love books, and we don’t just celebrate that love one time out of the year. There are many events for book lovers like you, but having a reading sanctuary in your own home is even better! Give your collection the space it deserves, and use a Hillsboro self storage unit to make it possible. Call Northwest Self Storage today to find out about rates and availability.

7 Unique Ways to Give Thanks This Year

You don’t have to wait until Thanksgiving to surprise your loved ones with a heartfelt “thank you” for all they’ve done. Thanksgiving rolls around once a year, and while the month of November has everyone feeling grateful, this isn’t the only time of year to give thanks. Battle Ground, Washington is a city that was named for a very thankful event. Named after a battle that was avoided, the residents of this city – and descendants – know how important it is to be thankful for the past. Northwest Self Storage has some unique ways to show your thanks all year long!

  1. Send Handwritten Mail

Everyone loves getting mail − as long as it’s not bills. But a carefully handwritten message can make an impact that the receiver never forgets. Whether it’s a surprise card delivered via mail or a message that you leave on a coworker’s desk, a handwritten note really shows that you put effort into sharing your thanks. Customized e-cards are nice, but nothing says, “I appreciate you,” like a pen-to-paper note. Take the time to write your thanks down, and they’ll know you care.

  1. Surprise Gifts

Gifts are fun, but when they’re unexpected, it’s even better! Don’t think that you have to spend a ton of money to show someone you care; in many cases, it really is the thought that counts. Think of what truly matters to the person you’re sending a gift to; remembering even the smallest details can show someone you really care, whether it’s a special stamp for their collection or their favorite candy.

  1. Help with a Task

Don’t let you family and friends take on time-consuming tasks by themselves! Offer your time and help to show your appreciation. Whether that’s tackling the clutter in their basement or helping prep their boat for winter storage, knowing they can count on you will have them thanking you all year long. Your parents have done a lot for you over the years. Why not give back to them by finally moving your belongings out of their home and into a nearby storage unit? Then they can turn the space into something they really want, like a home gym.

  1. Volunteer

Giving back to the community can be beneficial for yourself and the people you’re serving. Nothing feels better than making someone else’s day, but don’t take our word for it. Give back to those less fortunate than you. Whether you do so individually or volunteer with friends and family, giving back can help you show your thanks for the good you have in your life, and spread a little good to others.

  1. Pay it Forward

The “pay it forward” phenomenon is quickly catching on. It’s rare these days that a person hasn’t been on the receiving end of a pay it forward act, or doesn’t know someone who has. Make a stranger’s day, and keep the good karma rolling. Being thankful for what you have isn’t always about giving thanks to those you know; sometimes it can be just spreading the good fortune around, and doing so secretly can be rewarding too. Try buying the person’s coffee behind you in line, or leave a random note on a car. There are many ideas to choose from.

  1. Tell the World

Praising in private is great, but doing so in a public forum is even better. Give kudos to your coworkers at the company meeting, or shout out to your friend on social media. Using a social network to give thanks spreads your gratitude to a large audience; just be careful with leaving people out, as some might feel slighted.

  1. Be Sincere

Make sure that any thanks you give, you’re sincere. People can tell when you’re being fake, so smile, look them directly in the eye, and mean every word you say. Find something genuine you want to thank them for, or pick out a specific example of something they do really great.

Choose your ideal way to give thanks, and remember that you should do so all year long! If you need self storage in Battle Ground, Washington, Northwest Self Storage has a space for you – a space you’ll be thankful for. Call today!

Beaverton, Oregon

City Spotlight: Beaverton, OR

Northwest Self Storage is proud to call Beaverton, Oregon home to one of our top-notch storage facilities, but as much as we love to brag – that’s not the only great thing about living in Beaverton. Not even close, in fact, and that’s saying a lot. Named Money Magazine’s 100 best places to live a few years ago, Beaverton has only gotten better. With a rich economic center, a diverse community and a growing family of sister cities across the world, Beaverton is by far the best city to live in Oregon. That’s a fact. Now check out these other fun facts about Beaverton, and when you’re ready to pack it up and move here, give Northwest Self Storage a call!

Beaverton, Oregon Fun Facts

Curling is kind of our thing. In fact, Beaverton was the very first city in Oregon to build an ice rink solely dedicated to the fascinating sport of curling. Considering the Beaverton Curling Club was originally built in 1897, you could say we’re sort of ahead of the trends. But we have more than just one rink, with the Evergreen Curling Club making waves to change the sport for those with disabilities.

We’re the city without the city. There are about 4,800 people per square mile in Beaverton, more than even Portland, and yet you won’t find a skyscraper anywhere in town. We leave that to Portland’s downtown area only eight miles away.

Travelers call Beaverton home. Actually, almost 20 percent of those who live around here weren’t even born in the country, but traveled here and found Beaverton to be the perfect place to settle down. It’s also a pretty diverse population, attracting folks from all different backgrounds.

That’s because there’s so many different types of jobs. Our claim to fame may be Nike’s headquarters, but we are also home to a wide range of technological positions in the Silicon Forest, all the way to experts who work at vineyards and orchards nearby. With a job growth outlook over the next ten years looking to be about 37 percent, it’s only getting better.

Or it’s because we have so many sister cities. The point behind sister cities is to grow connectedness, by building bridges to economic and cultural understanding. Plus it’s cool to say your sister lives in Germany, or Taiwan, or even France and Japan.

Yes, we are named after beavers. Oh, and our city seal is also a beaver. Apparently the original settlers weren’t very creative, and they named the town after the nearby bodies of water that were covered in beaver dams. But we’ll take it, because just like Northwest Self Storage units, those little guys really know how to build a solid structure.

We love our space. This is probably why we don’t have much of a typical “downtown” area, but it’s mainly because we like to walk around outside. Therefore, the city has over 1,000 acres of parks, resulting in a park being no more than a half a mile from every single home.

There’s so much more about Beaverton we could share, like how we have a growing arts district and we’re really invested in public transportation. But that would take away from actually experiencing this beautiful little city, something everyone needs to do at least once in their lives.

And if we’ve gone so far as to convince you it’s worth sticking around, Northwest storage units are a great place to start. We’ll not only get you set up with a storage unit to make your move easier, but we’ll give you a few pointers for the area. Such as stopping in for breakfast at Tom’s Pancake House, or how to wow your new neighbors with a cake that looks just like your house from the Beaverton Bakery. No matter, give us a call or reserve your unit online and we’ll get you ready for some Southwest Oregon fun in no time!

Celebrate World Teacher’s Day October 5th

Teaching is one of the most integral jobs in every city, from right here in Kelso, Washington, to the far reaches of the world. This World Teacher’s Day on October 5, there is much more you can do besides wholeheartedly thank the teacher that is making a difference in you and your child’s lives. You can help them do their job even better by putting together a school supplies drive! But it doesn’t have to be your run-of-the-mill school supplies. Kelso teachers would love help with the pricier items, like awesome classroom technology, interesting field trips and even educational guest speakers. To help you get started, Northwest Self Storage is sharing tips for starting a supplies drive that will keep your teacher – and kids – smiling all year long!

School Supplies Drive Ideas

New for the Old. There’s a free technology recycling company that will pick up old and broken electronics in Kelso and send it off for proper recycling, called Earth Friendly Recycling. Schedule a day for them to pick up items, and hold a recycling drive in your school parking lot (shoot for the weekend so it’s empty). Spread the word through social media, and give your PTO and teachers a flyer to place around the school. Parents can bring in their old computers, cables, batteries, televisions and more, and you can request a donation for specific new items like iPads, software, projectors, or smart boards. The more specific the items, the more likely people will donate to that particular technology. If Earth Friendly Recycling can’t immediately pick up the items, or is unable to pick up the entire load at once, just store them in a storage unit until it can all be gathered.

Works of Art. Instead of selling items like posters, t-shirts or calendars, get the students together and have them create something. It could be planters, canvases, dream catchers or wind chimes – whatever their hearts’ desire. Then sell those items online or through an art gallery like The Broadway Gallery in Longview. Work with your art teacher to reserve a day or two for the students to create the items, then speak with the gallery manager or owner to determine if they are willing to reserve space to sell the items, without taking a portion of the proceeds. If that’s not possible, work with the school to create or use a current social media account to hold the sale in the park or even at the school. You could easily create an “Event Page” that shows a photo of the item for sale, and a short bio on the student who made it. Again, storage units in Kelso are a great place to store all of the items prior to the event date. The proceeds earned could go toward giving away tickets to the Columbia Theatre Rainy Months series for parents to take their kids on Sundays during the rainy season.

Go Digital. Kelso Public Schools has a foundation listed on FundRaise.com that allows you to create a fundraiser around anything. It could be as simple as paying for a guest speaker or as large as a new wave of technology. All you need to do is sign up, create the page, add pictures and a detailed description of your needs, set the fundraiser date and integrate it with social media. This tool allows any parent to make a big effort towards helping funds get raised, without having to do a ton of planning. All the funds will go straight into the Kelso Public Schools Foundation’s account, so once you set up the fundraiser, all you need to do is get the word out.

Northwest Self Storage in Kelso can help with any fundraising needs, by providing you with a storage unit that fits all your organizational needs – plus our storage companies offer convenient month-to-month leasing. That way when you’re all done raising the money and don’t need a storage unit anymore, you can pack up and head out until next time. Give us a call or reserve a unit online today, and get started thanking your teacher on World Teacher’s Day!

Latern in Winter

Transitioning Your Home Into Colder Weather

Canby, Oregon is no stranger to snow, ice and great skiing opportunities. But even the most prepared have a hard time transitioning to the cold. And so does your house. Getting ready for winter isn’t just about exchanging swimsuits for flannel shirts. Your home’s interior and exterior both require a little time and attention to prepare them for the drop in temperature. Here are a few tips from Northwest Self Storage to help you get started.

Indoor Winter Preparation Tips

First, check all weather-stripping and caulk around your doors and windows to keep out the cold air and help you save money on energy bills. To stay warm and toasty, make sure your heating unit is working properly and its filters are clean. If you have a fireplace, you’ll need to stock up on fire logs, and make sure the area around the fireplace is safe and uncluttered. You’ll also need to ensure the chimney is obstruction-free.

Before the first freeze hits, be sure your bedrooms are dressed for winter with your heavier comforters, electric blankets and flannel sheets. If your nose and skin tend to become dry in winter, set up your humidifier to stop the discomfort before it starts. Pack your summer clothes to make room in your closet for your sweaters and boots.

Outdoor Winter Preparation Tips

To get ready for winter storms, stock up on salt to melt ice. Check the exterior of your house for weaknesses that could become serious problems in severe weather. For example, inspect your roof for leaks and damaged shingles. Cover exterior pipes, and prepare supplies needed to protect vulnerable plants from freezing. Ensure that your car is equipped with winter emergency items.

Self Storage Is a Winter Lifesaver

Outdoor summer items like pool floats and toys, outdoor sports and fishing equipment, kiddie pools, lawn and garden equipment and barbecue grills can take up room and leave your yard cramped and cluttered. Instead of trying to cover them or simply letting them accumulate snow, find them a safe, warm temporary home in a self storage unit. You can also store unused indoor items and your entire summer wardrobe to leave your home neat and organized. If you need to access stored items, they are always conveniently within reach. Check out Northwest Self Storage’s local storage facilities for information about climate-controlled storage units that protect your belongings from freezing temperatures and moisture. With your home prepped for the cold weather, you can focus on making the most of the winter season.

September Is National Baby Safety Month

September is National Baby Safety month. Whether you have a baby on the way, or you’ve already been blessed with the laughter of little ones, it’s important to make sure your Gladstone, Oregon home is a safe environment. With a little help from your local storage facilities, the following tips can help you de-clutter, organize and optimize your home with your baby’s safety in mind.

  • Place window guards to prevent accidental falls.
  • Be sure your baby doesn’t have access to medications, cleaning supplies and personal hygiene products.
  • Place a non-skid rug or carpet beneath your changing table.
  • When your baby is capable of getting up onto his or her hands and knees, it’s time to remove hanging crib gyms, toys and decorations.
  • Check baby toys for small, potentially removable parts these can present a choking hazard.
  • Make sure there is a working smoke alarm and fire extinguisher on each level of your home.
  • Set your water heater’s thermostat no higher than 120 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Relocate large collections of fragile or sharp items.
  • Store electric gardening equipment and power tools outside your home.
  • Don’t let clutter build up; keep walkways and play areas neat and organized.

Storage Units Help Optimize Your Home for Safety

Some items you own may present a safety hazard, but that doesn’t mean you have to say goodbye forever. Renting self-storage units is a great way to keep your belongings out of reach until your baby is old enough to be exposed to them safely. Climate-controlled units are available, so you don’t have to worry about bugs, mold growth or temperature extremes ruining your prized items. Check out all the options from Northwest Self Storage throughout your area!
