Moving. It is just one word, but it can have such a strong meaning. Many people hate the hassle that comes with moving, and Maggie was no different. She hated to pack and unpack. She hated the hassle that came with searching through boxes for something that you find that you need and then realize that you have a need for it again.
Unfortunately for Maggie she was in the process of moving. She was packing up her two bedroom apartment that she had lived in for the past five years, and she was preparing to move into her first home. After college she had worked hard to find a great job, and had moved into the apartment and began to save every penny that she could to go towards a down payment for her own house. The time had come and house hunting had begun a few months ago. When Maggie saw the cottage style three bedroom house in one of the neighborhoods that she was looking to purchase in she fell in love and put in her offer.
Now that she was going to be a first time home owner she needed to pack up everything to vacate her apartment. When she talked to her landlord about ending her lease he was nice enough to let her sublet the last three months of her lease and he had a couple that was looking for a two bedroom like hers. The problem came with the dates however. She needed to be out of her apartment on the fifteenth and the closing on her house would not be done until the end of the month. She had to find a solution for her problem.
Her answer came in the form of a Peru, Ontario self storage unit. She rented one of their larger units and was packing as fast as she could to move all of her furniture and boxes over to the self storage unit. The majority of her stuff would be moved into the Peru self storage unit and she was going to be staying at her sister’s house until the closing was done on her house.
While normally Maggie hated packing it seemed to go by really fast for her. Maybe it was because she was in hurry to get out of her apartment and into her first house, or maybe it was just the time crunch that she was under. Whatever the reason it seemed to her that one day she was packing her first box, and the next day her stuff was in the Peru self storage unit and she was sleeping in her sisters guest room.
The self storage unit turned out to be a wonderful thing though in the end. Before she moved all of her stuff into her new house, Maggie took the opportunity of having a clean space to paint the rooms without the hassle of covering or moving all of the stuff in the room to be free of paint. All of her stuff was safely stored away in her Peru storage unit.
When she finally did move her stuff in it seemed to Maggie that she did not mind unpacking this time. It seemed to go by quickly. Maybe it was because she was a homeowner and knew that she would be staying here for quite a while, or maybe it was jut having the space be her own. Maggie knew that she was going to love being a home owner.
