“Those times of transition are great opportunities to look for recurring patterns in your life and make adjustments to build on the good and reduce the bad.” – Dan Miller
Have you ever had to transition? Well as we know summer has now approached us and we are full of college student looking to transition from school dorms back to their parents’ homes. This transition can be complicated for both parents and students but learning how to accept the change will help the ease of the move.

As parents it’s easy to try and alter their new lifestyle, but we need to remember to ACCEPT THE CHANGE. Allow your newly independent adult to continue to make their own decisions (if not harmful) and look for new ways to make adjustments to help build a better relationship.
When making that first transition to becoming a new student you purchase many new College Essentials:
- Bed Sets
- Storage Containers
- New Décor
- Bathroom items
- Shoe Racks, etc.
So, going from a dorm room with all new items back to your childhood room can be exciting for some but can also be overwhelming for others if the space is minimal. Learning how to adjust to the change will be key.
REDUCE THE BAD
As humans it is easy to get overwhelmed with items that seem like clutter, but there are a few options that can help with the ease of the move transition:

With garage storage, you have easy access, but space can become an issue, especially with an extra car. Garage Parking explains reason why cars need their own space. Now, self-storage offers many benefits like 24hr access, climate control, 24hr security. Although, it does cost a small fee you are no longer having to worry about the life span of items or clutter, and you can focus on the good of your child being back home and all their belongings being safe and secure for the next transition of the new semester!
