Newlywed Checklist - Get A Self Storage Man Cave

Your dream day is finally over, honeymoon finished, you are in your new home starting your new life. Time for a reality check, how do you start living as a married couple? Here are a few tips and hints for newlyweds.

1. You may be wondering what to do with your wedding dress. If it is still hanging in your cupboard it is time to move it. Don't just throw it into a black bag or box rather cover it with plastic and use a proper hanging box. Then look at using a self storage unit to store it. It will save extra cupboard space and you will always have it if you need it. If you are not going to hang on to your wedding dress then look at donating it. Stor-Age Self Storage partners with It's Your Turn that provides dresses to those less privileged.

2. Say thank you to service providers - word of mouth goes a long way in wedding circles and a recommendation from a friend is often the tipping factor when deciding on which professional to use. Did you get great service from a photographer or caterer? Tell your friends and leave a complimentary message on their social media pages.

3. Now that you have two homes becoming one you may find you have a lot more furniture than your new home can take. You can keep furniture in a self storage unit for use later, to give to friends or to sell from.
