4 Fall Storage Tips

As the seasons change, so too do your storage needs. One of the best ways to make sure that you never feel cluttered is to keep only the things you really need on hand, by making use of seasonal storage strategies. This means that with each changing season, you rotate things in and out of storage as you need them. Below are four storage tips for fall to make your life easier.

Summer Clothing

One of the best ways to cut down on the amount of wasted storage space in your home is to put your seasonal clothing (the clothes that are not being used) into self storage. Being able to open the hall closet, or even your bedroom wardrobe, knowing that you are only going to find clothing that you will use during the season you are currently in makes rushing around during the fall and winter months that much easier.

Gardening Tools

Most people are getting ready to put away the gardening tools for another year, and bring out the winter hardware (snow blower, shovel, salter, etc.). If you don't have room for everything in your garage or tool shed, why not consider putting the unnecessary tools into self storage over winter. You can take them out the following spring, and have easier access to the things you do need in the fall and winter.

Patio Furniture

Unfortunately, the start of fall and winter means that you are going to be spending less time on your patio. The dinners and breakfasts outside were fun all summer, but all good things must come to an end, and everything must be put away for another year. Putting your patio furniture into self storage will keep it in much better condition than simply leaving it on the patio all winter.

Drive up Access

If you are planning on moving a lot of larger items in and out of storage this fall, think about investing in a self storage unit which has drive up access. This means having a unit which will allow you to pull your vehicle right up to its doors, minimizing the amount of carrying and hassle involved in getting your summer items into storage.

Putting things away for the fall always comes with a bit of nostalgia - given the great times you had with them all summer - but you are going to need the space. Having things conveniently stored will make the transition from summer to fall that much easier to handle.
