10 Things to Move to Self Storage as the Weather Gets Warmer

Summer's on the horizon here in Little Ferry, NJ, finally giving people a reason to venture outdoors. The brutal winter kept everyone indoors for months on end, but now it's time to defrost from the cold and reduce all the clutter that you've collected over the season. Storage units come in handy for keeping your belongings organized without taking up space at home.

Storage Tips

Self Storage for the Summer

If you haven’t started spring cleaning yet, it’s not too late to organize your home and to get rid of the excess that gets in the way. Items such as winter clothes and snow-removal tools aren’t needed during the warm months. It’s hard to make space for your summer and fall items when your closets and garage are filled with winter clothes, tools, and other seasonal supplies.

Self storage can help you reclaim the space in your home for the things that you need right now, not months down the road. In addition to not being used all year long, seasonal items only create more clutter and make it hard to find room for everything else. Storage units provide the space to keep your stuff organized away from home but nearby when you need it.

Common Items to Store in Storage Units

There’s no reason to keep your winter items packed away in your home during the summer. You’ll need to make space in your closets for summer clothes, and the garage should have space for gardening tools and more. Some of the most common summer storage items include:

  • Holiday decorations
  • Snow shovels
  • Boots, gloves, and scarves
  • Snowmobiles
  • Electric blankets
  • Snowblowers
  • Coats and sweaters
  • Space heaters
  • Vehicle and patio snow covers
  • Snow tires and chains
