Keepr Storage PH’s 30-Day Declutter Challenge


MANILA, Philippines – The New Year is an exciting time, filled with seemingly endless possibilities for a better and brighter future. For many families in Metro Manila, this often begins with decluttering the home to determine what to keep and what to give away. Keepr Storage PH understands how hard starting can be for many households. And because of this, Keepr has developed an engaging 30 Day Declutter challenge to get you started!

“January is the perfect time to declutter,” shares Keepr Storage PH founder, Anna Moncupa. “Starting the new year free of clutter sets a very good tone for the rest of the year. I spread it out in 30 days so it’s not overwhelming and very attainable despite one’s busy schedule.”

The whole challenge was developed to ensure the home is always ready for frequent family gatherings. We can keep what we want, with the allowance to have space for more. But most importantly, it allows us to donate and discard what we can, instead of putting everything in storage.”

Taal Volcano Eruption Update: Alert Level 4

00 volcano icon for bulletin

Taal, Batangas update as of January 16, 2020.

Source: Phivolcs

Taal Volcano’s eruption has been characterized by continuous magmatic and hydrovolcanic activity that generated 700-meter tall dark gray steam-laden plumes that drifted to the general southwest.

The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology said Alert Level 4 remains, indicating a potential hazardous eruption, despite Taal’s reduced activity on Thursday

Taal is the country’s second most active volcano and one of the smallest in the world.

Despite the volcano’s calmer exterior, the Phivolcs official warned there is potentially dangerous activity underneath Taal. She said there are fewer volcanic earthquakes but its intensities remain strong. The volcano also continues to emit high amounts of sulfur dioxide. These signal there is movement of magma or molten rocks underneath.

Alert Level 4 still remains in effect over Taal Volcano. This means that hazardous explosive eruption is possible within hours to days. DOST-PHIVOLCS strongly reiterates total evacuation of Taal Volcano Island and high-risk areas as identified in the hazard maps within the 14-km radius from Taal Main Crater and along the Pansipit River Valley where fissuring has been observed. Residents around Taal Volcano are advised to guard against the effects of heavy and prolonged ashfall. Civil aviation authorities must advise pilots to avoid the airspace around Taal Volcano as airborne ash and ballistic fragments from the eruption column pose hazards to aircraft. DOST-PHIVOLCS is continually monitoring the eruption and will update all stakeholders of further developments.

Bicol International Airport (BIA) will be operating this 2020

DOTr made an announcement on Facebook last January 4.  The Bicol Airport (BIA) will finally be operational in 2020.

As of the moment, 62.042% is the COMPLETION RATE of the construction, Their traget will be on July this year. – DOTr

Keepr: How One App Can Help You Save Space at Home


MANILA, Philippines – Moms across Metro Manila now have an answer to all their storage needs with Keepr Storage PH. Available on both Google Play and the App Store, Keepr Storage PH is the best full-service storage solution that enables women to securely store and monitor their most treasured possessions right from their own phones! Keepr’s services start at just ₱399.00 a month.

Making Space is Never Easy

For many mothers in Metro Manila, clearing up space around the home is an all too familiar challenge. As times change and children age, it can be very easy for our things to pile-up, gather dust, and take-up an unnecessary amount of space.

“Extra storage allows us to better use our home for the things that truly matter,” says Keepr founder, Anna Moncupa. “It’s being able to have a full life and not being limited by small spaces.”

Keepr: A Service for Families in the 21st Century

Having relocated back to Metro Manila with her two children and partner, Jay Buensuceso, Anna Moncupa recognized a need for sustainable storage space.

“We’ve always liked being flexible in our space, having moved quite a bit around Manila and Los Angeles,” shares Jay Buensuceso. “When we decided to move back to Manila for good, we ended up living in a two-bedroom apartment because we thought it’d be a lot easier to maintain. It ended up being difficult for us since we’ve accumulated quite a chunk of possessions over the years, and barely had space for half of our belongings!”

Inspired by her experience using valet storage in the United States, Moncupa, together with Buensuceso, went to work on an app that could serve the needs of growing families in small, urban spaces.

“Keepr was inspired by our lifestyle abroad – the convenience and ease of having such a service,” says Anna Moncupa. “The real challenge was making it the perfect fit for Filipino families, and I think we were able to really step up to that challenge by making sure our warehouse is in Metro Manila. This enables us to cater to our clients more efficiently, allowing last-minute requests when needed. I believe that homes are living spaces, not storage space. We looked at our need of having just our essentials at home, and everything else in storage, but within reach.”
