3 Reasons Mardi Gras Needs Storage

It’s Mardi Gras!  Fat Tuesday!  Let the debauchery commence!  Just kidding, we’re at work and being very professional!  But if there’s any holiday that’s in need of a good storage unit, it’s this day of indulgence.  Why?  Because:

Floats: The Mardi Gras parades are a tradition even older than cheap plastic beads with hundreds of floats winding their way through the streets of New Orleans for weeks preceding the actual day of Mardi Gras.  But the floats have to be built somewhere and have to go somewhere after the parade.  Where do they go: New Orleans storage units.

Tiny Plastic Babies: Have you ever had a King Cake? If not, they are these really delicious, if vaguely garish looking cakes.  But they’re also a game!  A tiny plastic baby is baked inside the cake and whoever gets it in their slice (chew gently) is tapped to make the cake next year.  We all know things like tiny plastic babies are way cheaper when you buy them in bulk so why not get your tiny plastic babies for the next 50 years and put them in a storage unit between king cakes?

Beads: If you’ve ever attended a Mardi Gras parade or a Mardi Gras party or (accidentally!) run across a Girls Gone Wild video, you know all about Mardi Gras beads.  But the thing is that no matter who you or what you’re willing to do for them, you’ll acquire a disgusting amount of beads at Mardi Gras.  Pounds and pounds of beads, so you’ll definitely need a storage solution.
