One reason for storage usage is for individuals to hold onto items long term. Putting things in storage ensures people that their belongings are safe and will be available to use in the future.
Repurposing old stored away items is a hobby that has been growing in popularity. People take those items and find new uses for them. This is not only a good way to save money, but it's also fun. The end result is a one of a kind item!
Ron, Assistant Manager at Storage West – La Jolla, has repurposed his own items too.
Ron, an avid gamer, turned an old pair of headphones he had just “collecting dust in the closet” into something great. After his old headphones died, he did some research and ended up with a headphone set that “worked flawlessly”.
“There were so many obstacles ahead of me but I continued to push on and finally accomplished what I’ve considered to be the most challenging project I’ve ever encountered.” – Ron
It takes time to rebuild something and make it into something completely new but the payoff is satisfying once it is completed.
