If you have a small home, whether it is a house or apartment, you may find that you do not have enough storage space to keep everything you own or want to own. As such, you may be looking for a self-storage unit to help you organize and store your possessions. But then the question becomes, what items should you keep in storage, and what items should stay at home? Get to know some of the types of times you may want to keep in your storage unit. Then, you can get started organizing your possessions for storage right away.
One of the best categories of items to keep in a storage unit is your holiday decor. You do not need holiday decorations all year round. They are specifically only used for a certain time of year like Halloween or Christmas. You need them for a month or so a year and then they get put away for the other 11 months.
Because of this, holiday decor and decorations are the ideal choices for your self-storage unit. If you get a climate-controlled unit, you can even keep glass and breakable ornaments in there without worrying about them shattering in extreme temperatures.
So, gather up and organize your holiday decor and get it moved to your storage unit as soon as possible. Just make sure it is accessible so you can get to it when the holiday does come rolling back around.
Another category of possessions you may want to put in the storage unit is off-season clothing. If you rotate your wardrobe twice a year, for hot and cold weather, then you know that storing that clothing that is not in season can be a pain.
However, it doesn't have to be such a difficult thing if you put your off-season clothes in a storage unit. They will be out of the way so your closet doesn't get overly crowded, but still accessible the two times a year when you need to switch things out.
If you have old electronics that you do not want to get rid of like old gaming systems, old computers, or the like, you may have noticed they take up a lot of room in your home. Putting them in a (climate-controlled) storage unit will allow you to keep them as long as you want without having to worry about them getting in the way any more.
Now that you know a few categories of items that would be best kept in a storage unit, you can get started sorting and moving things right away.
