A lot of people don’t want a self-storage unit for just anything they don’t want to keep in their home; they want a theme, a purpose that never changes so you always know when you need to visit your unit and what you have in it. One of the most beneficial ways to use a self-storage unit is as seasonal storage.
By seasonal storage, I don’t mean just summer, fall, winter, or spring, but also all the holidays that go with those seasons. We have so many possessions that are seasonal, between clothes, holiday decorations, water sport gear, swimming pool noodles and inflatables, and even china and table linens. When it’s winter, even in Southern California, you typically don’t wear tank tops and shorts, don’t spend the day at the beach or by the pool, don’t need all the United States paraphernalia you use on the 4th of July or the fireworks you bought in bulk the year before, and you definitely don’t need those green shamrocks from St. Patrick’s Day or other non-winter holiday decorations. And then when it’s summer, you don’t need the thick coats and other wintery items.
Instead of trying to figure out where to keep all of these seasonal items at your house and designating certain parts of your basement or attic for certain holidays or seasons, you can devote an entire self-storage unit to these things and standardize your transitions between seasons.
Now that summer is almost officially here (just a few more days!), it’s time to get all those cold weather items out and away from your house so that you can focus on the season at hand. Get those winter coats, thick jackets, turtlenecks, and thermal sweaters out of your closet, get the autumn and winter table linens into a box (this goes for any Christmas or Hanukkah-themed ones as well), pack up any other holiday decorations, and get all of these things into a storage unit so it can wait for its time of year again without taking up unnecessary space in your home.
