Summer break is over and most students in the Conejo Valley are already bringing home crazy amounts of homework. Our Thousand Oaks storage team suggests setting your student up for success by setting up a designated at-home study spot.
According to an Iowa State Daily article, studies show that consistency and familiarity that comes with studying in a regular spot does help students do better in school. But all study spots aren’t created equal! We have a feeling kids do their best work in a structured space rather than lying on their bed with their laptop propped up on a pillow. So, here are a few ideas on how to create this space within a manageable budget.
One of the bigger challenges when creating space for studying is simply finding room. Our kids’ bedrooms aren’t typically that large, and other rooms may be full of furniture. Consider rearranging one of your home’s living spaces to accommodate a small desk on one wall or in a corner. Remember, it isn’t forever and it could actually keep your home better organized. If you have too much furniture, you could rent a small storage unit at Hollywood Storage Center to temporarily keep items that won’t fit. We’re building great minds, so the effort is worth it!
