Using Your Garage for Storage

By Storbox Self-Storage on September 22, 2014 - Comments off

A disorganized garage can fill up quickly. It doesn’t take long before you start losing things and there is no longer space to pull your car inside. If your garage is starting to become a place where you just throw belongings you don’t have room for in your home, it may be time to roll up your sleeves and get to work. You’ll need a plan, plenty of space and some elbow grease.

 

Park your car on the street, open up your garage door and get ready to utilize your garage and driveway space to sort through your belongings. Once you have enough room, start making piles. Put all your lawn equipment, sporting gear and gardening tools in their own heaps. Hopefully as you start to create piles you will begin to find items you no longer need. It can help to have one pile for belongings you would like to donate, another for items that can be recycled and a third for things you are ready to throw out. Read the rest »

Pasadena StorageSecuring a storage space is a great way to remove clutter from your home and get organized. Once you find a convenient and secure space, you have to decide what items should go into storage and how to protect your belongings once they are there.

It’s All About the Right Temperature

Pasadena Wine StorageThe traditional adage of serving wine is that white wines should be chilled and red wines should be at room temperature. This is a good general rule to remember, but it only scratches the surface. A wine that is served too cold or too warm can lose character and aroma. Wines that are stored at the wrong temperature can even get ruined long before they are uncorked.

Long-Term Storage

If you have a wine collection, you must find a space that is temperature-controlled. Storing your wines at temperatures higher than 65 degrees can result in an accelerated aging process. Furthermore, if you store wines colder than 45 degrees, they may not fully develop resulting in a less full flavor and bouquet. If you want to store wine for at least six months, it is advisable to find a way to keep the wine at about 55 degrees. Read the rest »
