WIth the onset of winter, it is time to get your house in order. This is something to the effect of what my grandmother would say every time the seasons would change. Even though I grew up in NYC spring and autumn cleaning sprees (accompanied by shopping trips) as well as a visit to our village down South became part of a tradition. All of the skills that my grandmother taught me when we were growing up have proven to be nothing short of immensely helpful over the past couple of years as I’ve moved into college. Sure they prepare you for college life early on from school, but everything else is left up to you to learn. I am glad my grandmother taught me how to organize both my life and belongings using simple tools like a plastic basket.
Plastic storage boxes are great for when it comes to stocking up on supplies that you would need during the winter, more so during a winter that happens to take place in Russia where the weather becomes so bad that it can be impossible to venture out of your own home during the peak of the season. Such is the danger that the elements propose that even if there is an emergency that requires you to head out, you would stop and think twice over the fact that going out might create a new emergency by itself.
Plastic is an invaluable material during times like these and is nothing short of a godsend whether it be treated like an insulant or like a medium to store and carry food in the wilderness or atleast that is what the smaller towns feel like. While my college is a haven marked with heaters plenty of space is provided for every individual to store their belongings, there is still something about the wilderness that I miss.
