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.”

Asthma is a condition in which your airways narrow and swell and produce extra mucus. This can make breathing difficult and trigger coughing, wheezing, and shortness of breath. For many asthma sufferers, attacks can be debilitating and even potentially fatal. (https://watsonshealth.com.ph/5-important-facts-you-need-to-know-about-asthma/)
Watsons, whose goal is to make people look good and feel great, wants to help asthma patients achieve better asthma control and an improved quality of life through this program.

NOVUHAIR Supports FITFIL and National Youth Commisision FitFil Youth Against Drugs held at SM MOA By the Bay
Can regular exercise make your hair grow? Although hair growth never comes as a direct cause by exercise, mental and physical health challenges may interrupt the hair’s normal growth process which may lead to hair loss. However, regular cardio exercise for example, can help improve your health and mood — discouraging any breaks in the natural hair growth cycle.
Coach Jim and Toni Saret, The National Youth Commission (NYC), ABS-CBN Star Hunt Academy artists, together with the leading hair loss treatment in the country NOVUHAIR, nature’s answer to hair loss, officially launched “FITFIL YOUTH AGAINST DRUGS (and Obesity)” at SM Mall of Asia By the Bay last November 16, 2019. The challenge for a 2-hour Dance Fitness Marathon was attended by more than 3,000 youth delegate and representatives from from various government sectors. NOVUHAIR conducted free hair and scalp analysis to help attendees achieve overall wellness starting with their crowning glory.
Highlighting the event, The National Youth Commission headed by Commissioner Ryan Enriquez, pledged to donate 2 million pounds of excess fat from Filipino youth! This challenge is FITFIL’s way of rallying humanity to become more proactive in fighting lifestyle-related diseases responsible to almost 70% of all Global illnesses including deaths.
