Posted by: Site Administrator on Tuesday, December 20, 2011 at 12:00:00 am Comments (0)
Heading abroad next semester? Not sure what to pack? I’ve been in your shoes and understand it can be overwhelming. I also know what you’re thinking right now, how do I fit my life into only 2 suitcases for the semester?! I’m going to help you out. Call it an early Christmas present. Without further a due, I’m excited to present my Ultimate Study Abroad packing list!
Underwear (two week’s worth)
Socks (two week’s worth plus a pair or two of wool socks)
Long sleeve shirts
Short sleeve shirts
Jeans/Khakis (2-3 pair)
A belt or two
Skirts (for the girls)
A set or two of workout clothes
Swimsuit (for those going to warmer climates)
Coat/Jacket (I recommend at least 2 – one for cold weather, and one that is water resistant)
At least one nice outfit for formal occasions
Flip flops/sandals of some sort (good if you’re going to a warm climate, but also good for hostel showers)
Sneakers/dress shoes/boots/rain boots
Cold weather gear (i.e. gloves/mittens, hat, scarf)
TSA Compliant Toiletry Kit/ 1-quart zip-top Ziploc bags
Razors/other shaving supplies
Contact lenses and solution
$300 in local currency
Important documents (passport, visa, itinerary, plane tickets, etc)
Sunglasses/ extra eye glasses/contacts
Laptop and charger (don’t forget, you’ll need an outlet adapter for the plug on your charger to work)
Camera (don't forget your cords and charger)
iPod/ MP3 Player
Until next time…Happy Holiday’s!

TOP 10 THINGS YOU CANNOT STORE WITH US
Posted by: Site Administrator on Monday, November 7, 2011 at 12:00:00 am Comments (0)
All storage companies have specific rules and guidelines that spell out the things you can and cannot put into storage units. I’d like to think that it’s exceptionally obvious the items that don’t belong in storage units, but you know what, isn’t it always best to spell it out- just in case. By just in case, I’m referring to the kid that brings the equivalent of a 4-course Thanksgiving dinner to your 2pm pysch class and thinks nothing of it… You know exactly the type of kid I’m referring to. The oblivious one.
Now, let’s get this list started:
Live animals or plants. Apart from qualifying as outright cruelty, storing either will attract insects and possibly other live animals. I’m not referring to your cute pet rabbit you call Trixy, I’m talking big, fat rodents that hang with those ninja turtle characters.
Stolen property. Do I need to explain this one? I hope not. Stealing is bad.
Hazardous materials. Anything that can cause serious damage in the event of an inadvertent spill should be kept far away from, well anything important, really.
Noxious materials. These can not only result in damage to property, but also cause serious health issues to individuals exposed. Seriously guys, no noxious materials.
Flammable materials. Please note that in this case only will memorabilia pertaining to any team other than a Boston sports team not be considered as flammable.
Perishable items, like food. Don’t be silly. Seriously, don’t store food. It can go bad, start to smell, sometimes even grow things on itself. Then come the rodents.
Illegal drugs. Unless you’re looking to get arrested, I’d suggest you refrain from storing anything illegal period.
Explosives. This should go without saying, for obvious reasons.
Firearms or weapons. If you own a gun, you got it for a reason, either you enjoy hunting or you got it for protection. Either way, you’ll want that sucker on you or stored safely at home. Let’s keep it that way.
People. While it sounds kind of funny, if this thought seriously crossed your mind, you should go directly to a counselor. Or a mental health clinic.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this lesson on what not to store with us.
Until next time,

Overpacked at College

Summer has come to an end, school has started, and the holidays are just around the corner. You know what this means, right? Fall has finally settled in. Along with the weather changes, our wardrobes have also begun the transition from the breezy materials of summer to warmer and heavier winter clothing. If you’ve found yourself bundled up and huddled in your warm dorm room only to realize that your space is still cluttered with your summer wardrobe lying around, no worries. Campus Crate student storage provides a great opportunity for de-cluttering your dorm any time of year.
No one needs to have access to summer clothing during the winter, so take out all of your summer items and pack them away with Campus Crate until summer returns. You can leave some of the clothing accessible, like t-shirts and a few pairs of shorts, but your winter clothing should have prime real-estate for the cold weather approaching. If you haven’t done it already, this is a good time to do a quick inventory of any gaps you have in your wardrobe. Check to make sure that your mittens have mates and make a list of things you need.
With music from your favorite Pandora station, a friend by your side, and the right mindset- your end of summer transition will be easier than you thought.

Happy Monday all! How bout that Superbowl? For a minute in the second quarter I thought the game was all over but the Steelers made a comeback to make it exciting. Thanks Ben.
Naturally being the day after the Superbowl I’m wondering what everyone’s favorite commercials were. Personally, I laughed hardest at the chimps from the Careerbuilder.com commercial. I mean, who hasn’t been stuck next to a car that parked way to close. Everyone has so everyone can relate. Normally I’m let down with all the hype about the commercials but this year was better, in my eyes. So congrats are in order not only for the pack but for the advertisers for stepping up their games. Well done. And can I just say, all that yellow on the field last night was confusing. We need our beloved red, white and blue on the field and we need it now.
