How many times did you hear your parents say, “I’m never throwing this away,” or “I’m keeping this forever,” in regard to something you found trivial or of little value? If your parents were anything like our own, we’re willing to bet the number is pretty high! As we grow up, you find the nostalgia bug biting you a little harder each year. And as your family grows you find yourself uttering the same words your parents did.

At AAA Stow-A-Way Storage, we value your possessions as much as our own. You trust us to ensure their safety and we don’t take that for granted, especially when it’s something sentimental. Often people let go of these items too soon and wish they had them back, so today we are going to give you our top 7 sentimental items you should never throw away!

  • Companions

There was almost always one toy we cherished above all others when we were younger. A blanket, an action figure, a stuffed animal, maybe this goes without saying but keep them! They will mean so much to you and your family when they’re older.

  • LEGOs

They are truly timeless, and every generation and every age can enjoy them. Keep these sets around for future generations to share and enjoy.

  • Video Games

In this day and age, video games have become something else entirely, but that doesn’t mean they won’t have some sort of value in the future. Keeping older systems around can lead to nostalgic fun where newer systems may fall short. Some systems and games go for a lot of money these days!

  • Birthday Cards

Whether it’s a card from a co-worker or your grandparents, these items are often hand-written and worth keeping to preserve your memory of these people and the time in your life that you received it.

  • Trophies

It was an achievement with enough merit that you or a loved one received a medal or a trophy—keep it! Don’t let your memory be the only home for that event.

  • Arts and Crafts

While it may live on your fridge for a while, a child’s paintings, drawings, and the like are often relegated to an unceremonious end inside a drawer or box and soon forgotten. Keep those things and keep them where they won’t get hurt. A climate-controlled storage unit is the perfect place for such items!

  • Old Photographs and Home Videos

Though most items like these are digitized and immortalized forever on Facebook, keeping track and taking care of those that aren’t becomes very important. Years from now you when you look back at the fashion, the hair, and the “oh my God is that Aunt Sally” moments, they will all thank you for taking special care of those memories.

At AAA Stow-A-Way Storage, we have units in varying sizes that will store these timeless memories safely. We’d love to help you share them with your family for years to come.

So, what are you waiting for? If you live in the western Kentucky or southern Illinois area, give us a call or contact us today! We’d love to give you the AAA experience you deserve!
