What to Do With Your Stuff During Winter Break

Finals are here and it is time to think about heading home for the winter break. If your school requires you to empty your dorm for the intersession or you will be moving to a different room in the spring, you might be wondering what to do with your stuff during the holiday break.

Here are a few options to consider:

First, this is a great time to declutter. Take a few minutes from studying for finals and use that time to go through your closets, drawers, under your bed to see what you can get rid of before you leave. You’ll be surprised by how much you can accumulate during a few months while you are focusing on your studies. Depending on the items, they can be thrown away or donated. After all, it is the holiday season so check out NYC Stuff Exchange for donation locations near you.

Next, consider sending back home things you know you won’t need next semester. Thought you couldn’t live without that LoveSac but turns out it is just taking up too much space in your tiny dorm? Ship it back home. Door-to-Dorm Shipping lets you get your bulky items out of your dorm without you having to lug it down elevators and city streets to a UPS Store.

If you will be moving into a new dorm or even off campus for the spring semester, then you may need to store your stuff until then. Your college will want you out of your room as soon as finals are over so it can be prepped for the next student. Short-term storage in the New York City area is a good solution. Options like the ones we offer at Collegiate Storage and Rental are a convenient way to keep your stuff nearby and then can be delivered to your new living quarters when you get back after the New Year.
