Why is this guy smiling?
Because he just won the Manhattan Mini Storage Extreme Apartment Makeover Sweepstakes! Meet Ben Raffalli, a 21-year-old student and aspiring actor who’s studying musical theater. Ben lives with two roommates in a very cluttered apartment in Chelsea. But after entering and winning our contest on Facebook, that apartment is about to get a lot less cluttered, because we’re giving Ben a free Personal Closet and free monthly apartment cleanings for an entire year!
Needless to say, Ben is thrilled.
“I originally lived in Harlem when I first moved here from Boston,” he tells us. “So moving all the way down to Chelsea where I am now, there was quite a bit of stuff that didn’t fit in my apartment. So it’s useful to have this.”
Ben went on to describe the challenges of living with two friends — a man and a woman — in a Manhattan apartment: “With three people in their early 20s, it does get a little bit messy, especially between two boys. We drive our other roommate a little crazy. Also, we have a lot of furniture that the previous tenants had left that we don’t necessarily want, so combined with all the stuff I have, this will really help us clear up some space in there. I’m very, very excited to have won this!”
Don’t bum out if you entered our sweepstakes and didn’t win — we’re running ANOTHER contest on Twitter right now! Simply tweet about how Manhattan Mini Storage can unclutter your life, and if we pick your tweet, you’ll get a free Personal Closet from now through the end of winter (March 19). Make sure you remember to tag @ManhattanMini in your tweet. Or if you’re not a contest person, simply visit our website and reserve your storage room today!
And don’t forget to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Google + and Pinterest so you don’t miss out on future contests, deals and discounts. (We also post a lot of funny stuff, too.) Enjoy the snow, folks!
