Storage Tips

Using Self Storage for Spring-Cleaning

Store out-of-season clothing.

There’s no reason to keep your winter clothes in the closet with spring around the corner. All they do is take up extra space for your spring and summer wardrobes. Gather your winter clothing, and place it all in protective covers for storage. You can store them in boxes, plastic containers, or on floor racks in a storage unit until next winter.

Put away clutter to get more organized.

You may have collected quite a few items over the winter season. These things take up space, especially if they’re competing for room with other items on the walls, the bookshelves, and the floor. Moving old items or unnecessary clutter to a storage unit will free up space and reduce the chaos in your rooms.

Collect items for a spring yard sale.

Storage units come in handy when you want to store items for a yard sale in the spring. It’s one way to make extra money for use on a vacation in the summer or to put in the bank for a rainy day. Collect items that you may not use or need anymore, and store them away in a storage unit until you’re ready to break them out for a Saturday yard sale in April or May.
