Here is an excerpt from the lesson

The storage of items is a little more involved than simply tossing unused items into a storage unit, basement or garage. People put items in storage for many reasons. Some people move into a smaller home, some might live in an area prone to natural disasters. Different items need different preparations and storage methods.

The guide here is about general storage. When you are storing or prepping for an emergency of some sort, you will need to know a few basic steps to make sure when you need the items are removed from storage, they are still usable.

Preperation

Like every good project, having a plan is a good starting point. You will want to ask yourself some basic questions such as:

  • How long will these items be in storage?
  • Will I need to access any of the items during the time when they are in storage?
  • Where will the items stored?
  • What’s the reason for storing these items?

10 Ways to Lace Up Your Shoes Creatively

10 Ways to Lace Up Your Shoes Creatively

Perhaps one of the hardest things a 4-year-old kid can learn is to tie his shoes. On the contrary, for adults like us, it’s the simplest and probably the most boring activity we can think of. I’m pretty sure you wouldn’t want to register for a seminar on how to lace shoes, right!

It’s obvious, you don’t even need to use your brain when tying shoelaces. Look back up, I said most b-o-r-i-n-g a while ago when I mentioned lacing shoes up. But I will take that back. Why? Because when I saw the post from Diply featuring videos of lacing up shoes artistically, I realize how intricate, complicated, and creative it is to lace up shoes. That is if you do it like the way we do it on the featured videos.
