3 Things That Should Go In Your Storage Unit Before Spring

Posted on: 4 February 2016

Having a storage unit can be a great way to cut down on the amount of clutter and unnecessary items that fill up your home. For example, it's a great place to keep seasonal items that you won't need for the next few months. If you want to get your home ready for spring, consider moving these items to your storage unit before the weather starts warming up.

1. Holiday Decorations

There is no reason to keep your holiday decorations in a closet where they will take up space and get in the way of spring cleaning and organizing. There is also no reason to keep them in a dusty attic, where they might get damaged. Instead, consider packing up all of your winter holiday decorations in storage containers and transporting them to your storage unit. Then, you won't have to worry about them until the next holiday season.

2. Winter Clothing

You are probably ready to put away your heavy winter coat and get ready for the summer months, and moving all of your winter clothing to a storage unit is a wonderful way to do it. Go through all of your family members' closets -- or have them do it -- and pack up winter clothing. Consider leaving out a few pairs of pants and a favorite sweatshirt or two, but pack up most of the stuff that you won't be wearing while the weather is warm. Then, you can make room in your closet for all of the stuff that you will be wearing this summer, such as your bathing suits and your shorts.

3. Outdoor Winter Gear

There is really no reason for you to keep your snow blower in your garage; instead, consider moving it to your storage unit so that you can make room for your lawn mower and other summer necessities. You can also pack up your snow skis, sleds and other outdoor winter gear so that you can have more room in your garage for all of the fun stuff that you and your family will be enjoying during the spring and summer months.

There is really no reason to keep all of your winter "stuff" around the house if you don't have to. Instead, consider moving these three different types of things -- as well as anything else that's winter-related and that you won't be using for a while -- to a storage unit to make room and get rid of clutter.
