Seasonal Storage Suggestions

Unless you live in an equatorial area, you have experienced the seasonal frustration of having a snowsuit drop off the closet shelf when all you’re really looking for is your polka-dot bikini. So many of the things cramming your drawers and closets have only a seasonal use.

For the rest of the year, they are merely stuff that gets in your way. How can you possibly maintain an organized home when there’s just too much to try to put away. A logic and easy solution to this dilemma is the use of a self-storage unit, a cost-efficient means of having the right things at hand when you need them and out of the way the rest of the time.

Get ready for summer by unearthing the winter items that have filtered to the bottom of the pile or the back of the closet. As you accumulate a pile of coats, mittens, hats, scarves, and boots, don’t forget to dig deep for the tools of winter fun.

Skis, sleds, ice skates, snow-blowers, bags of salt. winter hunting gear, ice fishing equipment and even fall gardening implements should populate this gathering of goodies to be stored out of the house and out of the way. Your garage will breathe a sigh of relief as the snow shovel takes a bow and heads for summer storage.

Next in line to take the trip to storage should be your decorations for fall and winter celebrations. There’s no need for Halloween, Christmas, Hanukkah, New Year’s or Valentine’s Day goodies to populate the hall closet offseason. Think of the pile of costumes, tree lights and balls, Christmas scenes, stockings, gift wrap, and wreaths that now reside uselessly in a corner of the garage.

Put these seasonal items in boxes, appropriately labeled for easy relocation, and cart them off to storage. You’ll immediately feel less encumbered and cramped by useless belongings.

A change of seasons that brings shorter days and the brisk chill of fall weather is a sign that it’s time to switch your stored seasonal items. Begin by pulling out all the winter clothing you so carefully stored last spring.

Bring out the winter recreational items and well as the work tools you may need as the cold and snow approach. Moving the things that cold weather calls for will make space in your storage for the summer items that you won’t be needing for a while. Be ruthless in your sorting. If you’re pretty sure wagons or pool toys won’t be used til next summer, don’t hang on to them “just in case.” Stick it all in storage, in an organized and marked plan, so you can find it all easily come spring.

As you’re sorting and packing, don’t overlook summer and spring tools that won’t be used for months. Some of these, of course, will come in handy through the fall, so keep those easily accessible. Don’t leave the expensive patio furniture out to be attacked by winter storms. Bring it safely inside your storage space to maintain its look and value. Holidays are also coming, so pull out the decorations that you need to celebrate each one.

As you can see, having a year-round storage space is an extremely useful thing. Once you have decided on the wisdom of using such a storage unit, do your homework. Call around and compare prices, as they vary from one place to another. Ask whether the facility offers any special requirements you may have, such as a climate controlled space to better maintain the integrity of your items.
