The cicadas may still be singing their song during the hazy, lazy days of August, but the temperatures dip quickly during its nights. Labour Day is just around the corner, and with it the long weekend foretells the final days of the CNE. All signs suggest that summer is drawing to a close — which means your first day back on campus is nearing faster than you think!
Summer blockbusters like Wonder Woman and Spider-Man: Homecoming has us nostalgic for summers spent catching up on the latest comic book series. But for some, they never left this hobby behind in summers past. They carried on flicking through comics well into adulthood under the cover of night — but no longer! What once was considered guilty pleasure by most adults is now a mainstream hobby as comic books are making a huge comeback in popular culture.
July 1 is just around the corner, and this year it promises to be no ordinary Canada Day. 2017 is an important year for the nation. We’re turning 150 years old, and the country is planning a celebration worthy of its sesquicentennial anniversary.
If you’re anything like the Abacus Self Storage crew, you’re watching the Toronto housing bubble through your fingers as if it were the upcoming IT remake. If not, this article might change your mind.
According to BMO and TD, Toronto’s housing bubble is inflating at rates it can’t sustain. In a single year, the housing prices skyrocketed by 23%. Economists say the bubble will finally pop, but the city won’t see relief until 2019. Until then, the bubble will keep expanding until it covers more than just the Big Smoke.
We apologize to any of our regular readers who thought they escaped our blog without having to read about taxes, for today we’re posting our inaugural tax article. True, with May 1 as the last day to file, you may think we’re late. Tax season is over, after all, but here at Abacus Self Storage we aren’t worried about the ins and outs of filing your return. Our concern is your growing pile of tax documents taking over your home office or place of business.
Well, gentle readers, it looks like spring is here to stay in Toronto and the GTA. Though it’s slightly cooler than we remember this time last year, we here at Abacus Self Storage are just grateful the area isn’t struggling with flood waters like our neighbours in Quebec. Since we can only expect the temperatures to rise and the days to lengthen, that means garage sale season is gearing up.
When Canadians run out of space, they’re turning to storage facilities like Abacus to house their belongings. Unfortunately, many of them don’t use their unit to its full potential, leading to a waste of effort, time, and money.
At just 150, Canada is a relatively young country within the global context, but it’s still a significant milestone for our nation. Though we’re 3 months away from the official date, most of the country is already figuring out ways to celebrate such an important anniversary. In February, we spoke of Parks Canada’s nation-wide Discovery Pass, which allows free admission to any of the national parks, historic sites, and marine conservations found in this great land. And now, VIA Rail is joining in on the festivities.
Whether it’s the ingredients for your next pie or that photograph of your great-great aunt Sylvia, you could be keeping the belongings of your home in the wrong place. Most of us don’t give our storage options a second thought as long as items have a place that doesn’t cause clutter. As a result, our attics, basements, and sheds become our go-tos when we need to hide something away. While that’s certainly one way of solving your space issues, it doesn’t take into account environmental conditions that can damage your belongings.
