The colder months are upon us, and with them comes new clothing, new home decor, new activities, and new storage challenges.
Luckily, if you have a self-storage unit, you’ll be ready to handle all of these changes. Here are some great ways you can use your storage unit to help you prepare for the winter months.
Store Summer Clothing
Most of your warm-weather attire, and definitely your swimsuits, towels, and pool toys, can be safely stored in your storage unit throughout the winter months. You won’t notice they’re gone—but you will notice all the extra space in your closet.
Store Non-Holiday Home Decor
Many people really enjoy “decking the halls” for the holidays. Of course, this might leave you with a pile of non-holiday home decor that doesn’t really have a home until the holidays have passed. Consider packing it all up and putting it in your storage unit. Don’t pull it out until you put all your holiday decor back in!
Store Sporting Equipment
Off-season sporting equipment can be conveniently kept out of the way in your storage unit. You won’t miss it!
Store large outdoor items
If you’re lucky enough to live in a climate that is warm(ish) year-round (we’ve got to admit, we love it here in Phoenix!), then you might be able to skip this one. However, many people would benefit from storing grills, landscaping equipment, and even patio furniture in a storage unit for the winter. Get those things out of the way and enjoy the space you’ll have during the holidays.
Make Room for Holiday Guests
If you have family or friends coming to visit for the holidays, it’s the perfect time to rid your home of some clutter. Move whatever is clogging up that guest bedroom closet into your storage unit. Your guests will thank you!
Store Holiday Gifts
Most people finish their holiday shopping well before Christmas, and then they’re faced with the challenge of hiding the gifts from their intended recipients. Use a storage unit instead! It’s totally secure, completely out of sight, and easily accessed when you need to get some wrapping done.
Get a jump on spring cleaning
Why wait to start cleaning out and organizing your home? Take advantage of those cold winter nights and spend some time cleaning out closets, cabinets, and boxes in your home. Move what you don’t need to storage, and see if you still miss it in the spring. If not, get rid of it! Half the work will already be done for you.
