10 Items to Return to Self Storage After Winter by Laing Self Storage


Self Storage Binghamton

Here in Binghamton, it may still feel like winter but with less than a month until Spring, it's the perfect time to start spring cleaning and decluttering your life. One area that often gets neglected is your self storage unit. It's easy to forget about the items you've stored away for the season, but now is the time to take inventory and decide what to keep and what to return to self storage. In this article, we'll provide tips for organizing your self storage unit and highlight the top 10 items to return to self storage after winter.


Tips for Organizing Your Self Storage Unit

Before we dive into the items to return to self storage, it's important to first discuss how to organize your self storage unit. A well-organized unit will not only make it easier to find items but also prevent damage and make it easier to declutter in the future. First, consider investing in shelving units to maximize vertical space. This will prevent items from piling up on the floor and make it easier to access items. Label each shelf with the items it contains for easy identification. Next, group similar items together. For example, all holiday decorations should be in one area, while outdoor equipment should be in another. This will make it easier to find items when you need them and prevent disorganization. Finally, create an inventory list of everything in your self storage unit. This can be done digitally or on paper, but it's important to have a record of all items in case anything goes missing or gets damaged.


Top 10 Items to Return to Self Storage After Winter

  • Winter Clothing and Gear: As the weather warms up, it's time to pack away your winter clothing and gear. This includes coats, boots, hats, and gloves. Make sure everything is clean and dry before storing to prevent mold and mildew.

  • Holiday Decorations: Christmas lights and ornaments, Halloween decor, and other holiday decorations can take up a lot of space in your home. Return them to self storage until it's time to decorate again.

  • Seasonal Sports Equipment: Ski gear, snowboards, and ice skates can be safely stored away until next winter. This will free up space in your home and prevent damage to the equipment.

  • Unused Furniture: If you have furniture that you don't use during the winter months, such as outdoor patio furniture or a grill, consider returning it to self storage. This will protect it from the elements and prevent damage.

  • Outdoor Equipment and Tools: Snow blowers, shovels and other outdoor equipment can take up valuable space in your garage or shed. Return them to self storage until you need them again.

  • Documents and Files: If you have important documents or files that you don't need to access regularly, such as tax records or old receipts, consider storing them in self storage. This will free up space in your home office and protect the documents from damage.

  • Winter Recreational Vehicles: If you don't ride your winter toys, such as snowmobiles, during the Spring/Summer months, consider returning them to self storage. This will protect them from the elements and clear up some garage space!

  • Camping Gear: Tents, sleeping bags, and other camping gear can take up a lot of space in your home. Return them to self storage until it's time to go camping again.

  • Seasonal Decor: Winter and Fall Decor, such as Christmas Trees or lights, can be safely stored away until next year. This will free up space in your home and prevent damage to the items.

  • Winter Lights: Holiday lights can take up a lot of space in your home. Consider storing them in self storage with climate control features to protect them from damage.
