Household Storage Solutions

Staying on top of household storage is an important part of keeping your home organized and clutter free. With winter here it is time to pull out your winter boots, gloves, hats and scarves from storage. With self-storage it is easy to access these seasonal items when you need them.

Placing seasonal items in storage will free up the space in your home and help to keep it free of clutter. Here are some tips for packing your items for removal to your self-storage unit:

Use Plastic Bins Instead of Cardboard Boxes. Plastic bins are a much better option than cardboard boxes when you are storing items like clothing because:

  • They will stay dry and will allow air to circulate better
  • They are sturdier and easier to move
  • They can hold a larger amount
  • With clear bins you can easily see what you have packed inside

Add Bounce Sheets to Packed Clothes. To keep your clothes smelling fresh when they are in storage consider adding some bounce sheets (or any dryer static sheet) to your storage bin. Of course you always want to ensure that you clean clothes before packing them. Take the time to properly fold the clothes to reduce wrinkles during storage.

Use Bubble Wrap and Newsprint for Breakables. For breakable items you want to ensure that you properly pack them using bubble wrap or newsprint to avoid damage when you are transporting them to or from storage. Also, don’t pack too many breakable things in one box and ensure the lightest items are on the top.

Keep Electronics Out of the Cold. If you are storing electronic items then you want to ensure that they stay out of cold places. If your basement is cold then move these items to a warmer place in your home. Most storage facilities have climate controlled units to make storing electronic items safe.

Household storage is a lot easier when you properly pack your items.
