When it comes to storing seasonal items, there are a lot of different things to consider. What are the best ways to store items like winter clothing or swimsuits? Where should you put them? How can you organize them so they’re easy to find? And what about sports equipment or ski gear? How do you store all those things without taking up too much space?
We’ll answer all those questions and more by giving you some tips from storage experts on storing your seasonal items efficiently and effectively, so you can utilize them when the time comes.
Seasonal Clothing Storage
There are a lot of benefits to using seasonal storage. It can help you save space, keep your things organized and make it easy to find what you need when you need it. Seasonal storage is also a great way to declutter your home. If you’re not using something, why keep it around? If you have room, storage bins are a great way to make space in your dresser and free up some space in your closet. However, if extra space is limited you can put your things in a self storage unit and free up some valuable space in your home.
If you are a college student in a dorm or living in a small apartment in the city, you know how quickly clothes can overwhelm your dresser and closet. In the summer, your snowboard gear and winter coats serve no use, they are just taking up space. And vice versa, in the winter your sports equipment probably isn’t getting much use. Keep in-season items available and out-of-season items safely stored away until you need them.
Organizing Seasonal Items
So, if you’ve decided to pack up your seasonal items and put them into a self storage unit. It’s important to have easy access to these items in case you want to go on a last-minute vacation to Florida in the winter, or there might be a random day of nice weather in November.
First, store your seasonal items in boxes or plastic bins. It’s also a good idea to purchase clear plastic bins as you’ll be able to clearly see what’s inside.
You’ll also want to label all the boxes or bins so you can easily identify what’s in them at a quick glance. Depending on how you stack your bins, label them on the side pointing out of the storage unit.
It’s also smart to organize your seasonal storage in a way where the items you think you’ll need to use the most are at the front of your storage unit for easy access. You could also consider installing shelving in your unit to store your bins and allow for walking room inside the unit.
