The holiday season is here! As wonderful as it is, it can be stressful. So take a deep breath, and make sure you schedule in time for yourself to de-stress in the comfort of your own home during the holidays.
This may be easier said than done.
Once the gifts have been opened, you may notice that you have a lot more stuff in your home and may feel a little cramped for space, and the itch to do a little decluttering. But first you will need to put the Christmas decorations away, which seem to grow exponentially each year because ornaments and Christmas décor are irresistible.
What you need is a post-Christmas plan to bring your home back to its pre-Christmas organized state.
It’s a good thing that Storage Solutions is here to help with some expert tips for storing your holiday decorations. All too often, Christmas decorations are accidentally damaged or lost in between the Christmas seasons. Ornaments holds memories, tell stories, pass along traditions and some are irreplaceable. Keeping them safe when they are not on display means you can enjoy them for years to come.
Try these helpful tips, which work well if you store your Christmas decorations at home or use self-storage:
And let’s not forget to talk about snow gear and equipment. We haven’t had too much snow yet, but we’re sure it’s on its way! Because it’s been relatively mild so far, you may not have retrieved your snow blower, snow shovels, snow mobiles, skis and snowboards yet from your self-storage unit. Now is the time to gather those items, so that you’re ready to go when the first huge blizzard of the New Year descends. In fact, some of our customers are already visiting us to swap their summer & fall stuff for their winter items.
Before you come and collect your winter belongings, take a peak around your home and garage for any remaining summer and fall seasonal stuff (like outdoor furniture, lawn mower, BBQ, kiddie pool, planters and gardening tools, sports equipment, summer clothes or summer tires) that are still lingering around in your garage, mudroom, basement or laundry room. Moving these to self-storage will help you free up more space for the things that you need now, and for what’s to come in the new year.
It really is amazing how self-storage can help you prepare for all the changing seasons and holidays, plus give you the extra space you need throughout the year to help keep you organized and less stressed.
Have questions about self-storage? We’d love to hear from you.
