We’ve all seen the candy apple red 1961 Ferrari 250 GT convertible in the classic film Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. If you haven’t seen this movie, do yourself a favor – drop everything and go rent this movie. Better yet, find it online and buy it! It’s that good. At the climax of the movie, Ferris’ friend Cameron takes a stand against...

Fellow blog readers, When I was offered the opportunity to become a writer for the Extra Space Storage blog, I jumped at the opportunity.  After years of working in the self storage industry, I now have an outlet to share some of my hard-learned knowledge on the self storage, storing items, and how to best take advantage of your unit’s space.  You may...

Storing away your weather-specific items is one of the easiest ways to ensure they’ll last into the next season.  Although many may think they live in an area with milder winters as well, chances are you’re not using your outdoor items so store them!  As a married man with kids, and lots of outdoor items, getting them stored sooner than later will...

Every man needs a place to call his own – where he can escape life’s stresses and submerse himself in the things that he enjoys most, without interruption – an area often known as “the man cave.”  Some men design their future homes to include a specific room for their manly hobbies and interests, while others remodel and convert an existing...

Yesterday I wrote about sharing Thanksgiving with family members who can’t attend in person, especially the ones serving our country in the military overseas.  My wife got me into watching So You Think You Can Dance and even Dancing with the Stars, so I’ve been following the amazing and inspirational JR Martinez. Hey, what can I say, his partner Karina...

Got an extra chair at the Thanksgiving table this year? Don’t push it aside or use it to stack coats, fill it with a laptop or tablet and accommodate a remote guest right at the table. Friends and family members all over the country will be celebrating Thanksgiving but some of them will only be present through a brief phone call. While a loved one may not be physically...

This upcoming Thanksgiving holiday don’t let the hassle of planning or traveling get in the way of enjoying your feast-of-a-day.  All too many times I’ve seen a stressed out family member spend the day cooking and cleaning up after others, when they should have been relaxing … and making others help with the duties.  Having a clear-cut plan, and articulating...

It was with great heartbreak and disappointment that I learned about the divorce of you and Kim Kardashian. Not for the fact that she ended your sham marriage, but for the fact that you were so upset and manic that you moved out of our Hoboken, NJ self-storage property. I get that you were completely “blindsided”, but why Kris, why move out of our...

Did you know there is actually a National Get Organized Week? Well, there is and if you’re like me you need a push to go through old whether it’s in a  storage unit, basement, or garage, and, well, get organized.  A common misconception about getting organized is that it requires throwing out old or little used items.  However, while a thorough...

Welcome to Extra Space Storage’s blog. I’m the head of marketing and corporate communications with Extra Space Storage. I joined Extra Space in 1999 after working in financial services and high tech. I enjoy skiing, fishing and golf. (I really suck at golf; don’t ever pick up golf when you turn 40. I should’ve taken up bowling or fencing.) When...
