If you are wondering what video games have to do with over a billion dollars, then let me tell you that this is the amount of money that consumers spend on video games during a month. During one month it was $1.23 billion and this seems like a very high amount considering that the price of more essential items like food grew rapidly. I think that this clearly shows that people need entertainment and time for having fun, as much as they need other products, which are often considered to be a higher priority among many households. One of the reasons that Americans spent some much on video games is due to consoles and that there are recently many good games coming out.
With the Christmas season just around the corner and most of us shopping for presents, we might start to realize how cluttered our homes really are. How are we going to make room for all those new arrivals? We all like to get gifts, but finding enough room is already a completely different story. Below you will find a few ideas that will help you to make sure that your house is not too cluttered during this usually busy season.
1. Don’t be afraid to say good bye to some of the things you have had for years but have not used them for a while. Be honest with yourself and ask yourself how much you really need all this stuff. I am not sure about you,m but when it comes to me, throwing or giving away some of the things I don’t need anymore frees me from the responsibility of using them effectively. This can be sometimes a very nice feeling.
2. If getting rid of things permanently is not the right solution for you, then consider using self storage services. If you are finding it hard to say good bye to your things forever, at least you can always check your self storage unit over and over again and bring some of the things home to use them again. Don’t feel like you are forced in any way to give away something you have owned. While it might be true that somebody else might benefit from what you have, at the same time you might never know when you might need those things as well.
3.Try to organize your stuff better. A lot of space in our houses is being wasted because we don’t organize our things enough. I personally am a huge fan of the type of furniture that allows me to store a lot of things. By this I mean the type of furniture that has a lot of compartments and that goes very high up to your ceiling to make sure that you use the space in your home very efficiently. If this still isn’t enough then storage services are probably your best option here.
