What Are Your New Year Resolutions?

So an eventful 2016 comes to a close, filled with good and bad memories. What awaits in the year 2017 will be exciting nevertheless. But how many of us really stick to the list we make to improve ourselves? A handful at most isn’t it? A better action is to keep a resolution to change one day at a time.

Home Storage in Mumbai

So in the New Year, let us as human beings, resolve to change our habits, attitudes and lifestyle for the better.

In a simple statement: We need to get mentally tough, keep our heads down and prod through the obstacles.

In other words, do not keep an audacious goal. Work within your limits and surely, it can be met one day at a time.

Goal-setting, while admirable, is essentially pointless. Goals, in and of themselves, aren’t sustainable. They tell you where you want to go, not how you’re going to get there. You must have a mission in mind; whereas goals are just purely milestones.

Pick up a new hobby, get rid of old habits, bring a change within you.

Home Storage in Mumbai

Note down, dream it, and achieve it.

Here are three important ones worth mastering, if you want to be better this year (at cleaning, organising, or anything else):

Like the old saying goes; practice makes perfect. Whenever you find the time, make sure you practice the idea of organizing. Be it early morning just after your breakfast, or during the evening when you have an hour to kill after tea. This plan will take time to shape up but you will be glad you started it with great vigor. Trust us when we say, you will feel a sense of pride and joy with this activity.

Cleaning is a very important task in the overall process. Do not just dump things at random. You will suddenly find a pile of garbage (clothes and other things) and will be in a fix. Rather, take time of your busy schedule and clean up the house, one room at a time, or if you are at office, straighten your drawers and work desk. Research says, cleaning can help you release the stress and also increases your productivity ten folds.

Learn to be self disciplined and follow a system that works for you. At times like these, remember to be playful; have fun. Remind yourself why you are doing this, a small exercise in cleaning or organizing will bring joy towards the end.

So always remember to practice, plan thoroughly and finish the work started by you. Use this mantra and there will be rewards at the end of this mammoth journey.

For any storing concerns you have give us a call at BoxMySpace on 8767252252 and we would be glad to help you out.

Until then,

Become An Expert In Art Storage

Every house, office or studio you visit, one thing will always be there for sure – an art piece! It tells you a lot about the owner of the said painting. Sometimes it is more expensive than the house itself. Fast forward to movies where art or set design is the mainstay on which storytellers pay a lot of attention, when creating a masterpiece.
To jog your memory, Wes Anderson a renowned director known for his outlandish set designs, has his move filled with art décor. The latest among them – The Grand Budapest Hotel. So how do you take care of such priceless piece of artifacts? You don’t need to rob it or put it in a glass casing. It takes proper wrapping and transporting and a safe warehouse storage in Mumbai in place.

Here are some of the storing tips on hand:

Wrap it up

It is not rocket science to preserve a painting. A three layered wrapping method will suffice. First, you need to slowly wrap the painting in transparent plastic foil which is easily available in the market. Secondly, a layer of bubble wrap to protect the edges from being chipped off. Thirdly, a brown paper to seal the deal.
Additionally, when you are transporting the art, thermocol sheets are of great use. See how the packaging guys get your products. Just like that! You can also use confetti so there is a layer of buffer when you hit a bump on the road.

Rack it up

When storing your paintings, always remember to make use of a rack in a warehouse storage. You can create one by cutting 2 x 4 wooden planks and placing it flat on to it. This way you avoid the water from dampening or any other insect from entering the artifact.

Temperature sensitive

A painting or a relic does not like fluctuating temperatures. The paints and the canvas all get damaged because of a sudden change in temperature. Keep paintings covered with an acid-free cloth. So whatever the temperature, no harm is done to it.

Professional packing services

The big players like UPS, FedEx and TPCIndia all have their own ways of handling fragile goods. Depending on the weight, size and storage material used, you can get assistance to transport your goods from point A to B.

Move to a Storage Unit

The final option for you is a warehouse storage in Mumbai, if you plan to keep your art in storage for an extended period of time.

Creating your own mini library at home

It all begins with one small fairy tale, given to you by your parents. One gets engrossed in that fictitious world with supernatural and mystical powers, colourful characters and the surroundings. Fast forward to the present and suddenly you’re lost somewhere in that pile of novels, story books. The houses in the cities have small spaces, but your thirst for new books and more knowledge is increasing by the day. Book storage in Mumbai is an issue, with your parents now concerned where to store your books.

Give or take, each home is close to about 1000 sq. ft & to match it you’ve 1000 books. Hmm, you see the issue arising?

What do you do in such a situation? Do you give away your cherished books? Leaving a void within you! Well, we have solutions that can help.

  • These days the sofas are multi-purposed. They will have slots at the arm chair to keep your newspapers, coffee table books, a Cuppa Joe etc. Why not place some of the great novels along the side of the sofa, or just behind it. Just pick up a book and continue where you left off. A little cozy English library feel to it, isn’t it?
  • You’ve heard that walls have ears, an age old saying. Well that is because in the olden days, book were stored  in huge shelves adjoining the walls. Walls gained knowledge, insights, and ideas. They were planning WWIII. No, no just joking, but you the gist of it. If you’re lucky enough to have a spare wall at home, the living room is a great to build a library.

  • When renovating your home, think also how to create a library with lightings. Yes, add a spot light in your living room, bedroom or a kitchen. These spots can be used for storing your novels. A novel idea, really!
  • Another great idea for book storage in Mumbai for your cherished stories are – beside your bed. Bed time stories or a chapter in a thriller drama is a good way to unwind and relax your mind before sleeping. So if you’re the type who cannot do without reading in bed all snuggled up, this arrangement makes perfect sense. It just comforts the laziness and tiredness within you. As stated earlier, just mount a head lamp or a strong spot light for reading and you can get lost in a story within a matter of time.

It is only the surface that is scratched with regards to book storage, it is best to visualize, chalk out and see spaces that can be utilized.

Finally, would like to end it with a simple thought. A home library is simple to develop, it is not rocket science and doesn’t burn a hole in your pocket. In fact, you have all the time in the world to organise and store your ever growing collection.

Well, a neat and clean looking home is always welcoming to the Gods during Diwali. So in the midst of reaching out, it is time to get your home organised for the festivities.

Diwali time is family time. But alas, over the current year homes have got smaller and smaller due to the hoarding mentality. Humans get attached to inanimate objects, one reason being, they have paid so much for it, it can be used by someone else later. Good clothing bought for a family occasion is now lying deep inside the cupboard. It was only used once. Mom may have stocked few of her masalas over a period of time, which has stained the cabinets, and old jars are now turning yellow. It is best practice to keep a few and chuck out the rest. You’ll find more space, cleaner cabinets and a sweeter celebration, that is GUARANTEED!

Of course, once you’re done with that, a full sweep of the house followed by swabbing is recommended, to kill the germs and make your house glisten like natural diyas.

Start Decorating

Now with all the muck taken away after hours of hard work, it is time to add life to your home. Take out your décor boxes from the attic or storage room and begin. Everyone is tech savvy these days, and e-commerce sites are attracting a lot of buyers with great deals. Make use of that, get in the new & do away with the old. The freshly bought bedsheets and curtains will bring a feeling of newness and life into your house. Set your diyas and rangoli art at the foot of your entrance and in smaller comfortable corners. They will definitely add light to your beautiful homes. Add Diwali decals to your freshly painted walls, give it a personality. Dress your sofas with new prints. There is so much one can do! A little bit of imagination and a whole lot of madness.
