Spring Storing

Spring has sprung. It’s time to gear up for warmer weather and say goodbye to your winter belongings. Having seasonal items cluttered throughout your home can get a bit overwhelming. But with self-storage, swapping out winter items for spring ones can be a piece of cake. Make room in your home and garage for your patio furniture, grills and more with these tips for storing seasonal belongings.

What Winter Items to Store

Before you can begin your great spring swap out, you must first determine what stays and what goes. Ask yourself questions, such as “Will I use this item in spring or summer?” If the answer is “rarely,” chances are it’s time to put it away for a while.

Some winter items to consider storing, include:

  • Holiday decorations.
  • Sleds.
  • Snow blowers and snow shovels.
  • Space heaters.
  • Winter apparel, such as gloves, hats, coats, scarves and boots.

Remember, not all winter items will need to go into storage. Blankets or fireplace tools are useful to have for the occasional chilly nights.

What to Take Out of Storage for Spring and Summer

Once you figure out what to store, determine what you need to bring out of storage for the spring and summer. Items to consider include:

  • Bicycles, roller blades, skateboards.
  • Gardening equipment.
  • Grills.
  • Lawn mowers.
  • Patio furniture.
  • Pool toys and equipment.
  • Portable fire pits.
  • Sports gear (i.e. baseball equipment, volleyballs).

Don’t forget your motorcycles and boats that you stored all winter (as if you could)!

Consider making a list of all the items you swapped so the process will be easier next year.
