Winter is approaching and we are rapidly getting closer to the holiday season. For many, this means holiday parties are right around the corner. So before it gets too cold outside, how can you make more room in your home for guests and more holiday décor?
Its officially times to clean out your spare bedrooms where you’ve been stacking your families summer clothes because it’s the holidays! Make a pile of all the shorts, flip flops and swimsuits your family isn’t going to need for the next 6 months and prepare them for storage. Organize everything for each child or for each item of clothing (shorts, t-shirts, etc.) and store them in a sealable bag. If your concerned about damage to clothing you can purchase a package of mothballs from Walmart or any other general store to put in each bag for extra protection. You can also store your boxes of packaged clothing on pallets for extra protection against any water that might seep into your unit.
Let’s move on to your garage. Start with your families’ summer sporting gear; baseball bats, soccer balls, paddleboards and kayaks. How about your lawn equipment? Clean out the bulky lawn mower and your summer gardening tools. If you have spare vehicles, motorcycles or bicycles you won’t need during the winter, move those to the storage unit as well. You can even store the new patio furniture you bought this summer! Don’t let your new awning get ruined in the wind and snow. And voila! You now have an extra covered space for your guests to park so they don’t have to unbury their car every morning!
