Fall storage and renovations

With sweater weather rapidly approaching, nailing these helpful fall organization tips will help you avoid overstuffed closets and drawers.

As the fall weather creeps in, it’s time to unearth those boxes jam-packed with fall clothing, holiday decorations, and winter sports equipment. However, unpacking these items can often lead to cluttered counters and overstuffed closets. To get ahead of the autumn clutter and to prepare for those planned renovations, we’ve compiled four space-saving tips, including the use of a MIBOX® container rental.


1. Utilize a MIBOX® Container

The easiest way to get a handle on fall storage is to order up a MIBOX® container. It’s weather resistant. It can sit nearly anywhere right on your property. It holds as much or as little as you’d like it to. And it’s affordable. It’s even super helpful year round. You can store seasonal items, boxes, gardening tools, lawnmowers, snowmobiles, and so much more.


2. Discover the Importance of Overhead Storage

If you’ve got an unfinished basement, consider tucking those less frequently used items in the rafters. They’ll be out of the way, but easy to access when the time for them comes. In the garage, install ceiling-mounted storage units. There is so much wasted space above your vehicles. Why not take advantage of it?


3. Swap Out Summer Clothes for Fall Items

Admit it; sweater weather comes with a price tag. Besides offering warmth, bulky sweaters can take up a lot of extra space compared to their warm-weather counterparts. Instead of jamming your fall clothing items into whatever closet space you have left, pack up your summer clothes. It’ll be at least six months before you can wear those tank tops and bikinis anyway. Once they’re packed, rent a Kelowna self-storage locker and tuck them away until the snow melts and summer makes its much-anticipated return. In fact, there’s even a promotion for lockers going on right now at Space Centre Storage!


4. Prepare for Fall and Winter Renovations

When the weather gets nippy, many homeowners prefer to start tackling all of those home renovation projects they put off during the warmer months. Prepare for the impending projects by cleaning up clutter and removing the furniture in those spaces. This is where the MIBOX® portable container comes in really handy. Simply drag those pieces and packed boxes out the door and into your waiting storage container. Easy, right?


5. Incorporate Storage Solutions into the Reno

When designing your new space, consider tossing in some convertible furniture and additional storage options. From Murphy beds to built-in cabinets and shelves, there are so many ways to create more space. Future You will be so thankful for all the stowage improvements you included during the renovation.
