Self-Storage: How to Decorate and Declutter in Time for the Holidays
Posted on November 15, 2019
Make room in your home for all your Christmas decorations by placing your off-season items in self-storage.
Christmas may be more than a month away, but there’s no better time than the present to prepare for the mistletoe and eggnog, and everything that comes along with it. Wipe the last remnants of fall off your list and see how our self-storage services can help you declutter and organize your home for the holidays.
Divide the Decorations
It's time to trade Halloween ghouls for Christmas lights and cornucopias for Christmas trees. However, it can be impossible to find a space in our homes for all those seasonal decorations. One solution is to look for storage facilities in which to place your lawn ornaments and other off-season items. Consider multi-sized units with easy access, including storage for furniture pieces so you can make room in your home for your Christmas tree.
Take out the Toys
If the idea of stepping on loads of Lego or looking for spare shelf space around that expanding bobble-head collection fills you with dread before the holidays, it may be time to convince your family to either sell or store some of their toys. A mini storage locker is ideal for the things your family can't part with, such as heirlooms and keepsakes, and offers enough space for boxes and bins as well as beach and outdoor toys.
Swap Out Summer Stuff
Planning to have guests drive to your home for the holidays? Is your driveway or garage filled with items such as boats, RVs, motorcycles, bikes, ATVs, and ride-on lawnmowers? Then you might want to consider secure storage options such as:
- Portable storage containers such a MI-BOX® that can be kept on your property or at a storage facility
- Outdoor public storage lots for RVs and boats
- Climate controlled indoor storage units
Contain your Cookie Cutters
The holiday season is a time for family and baking! Start by sorting through your dishes, crystal, kitchen utensils, and equipment. For those without space to keep all your kitchen gadgets, a small storage unit can help. Make sure to protect your glasses and fine china by wrapping them individually in bubble wrap or packing paper.
Break Out the Winter Woolies
Hitting the ski hill for the holidays? Now is the time to get out your winter gear. You can declutter your home and make room for your winter clothing, skis, snowshoes, and even your snowmobile by renting a storage space in which to place items you won’t need over the holidays.
