Store Winter Away and Get Ready for Summer!

Tips for Staying Organized

As the cold winter season comes to a close and spring begins to blossom, it is essential to stay organized. Spring cleaning always starts with decluttering and moving last season’s clothing and decor into storage. However, storing your winter items at home takes up too much space and can create a higher risk of losing your items to water or heat damage. 

That is why the best place to keep last season’s clothing, decor, and other items is always U-STORE-IT self-storage!

Find a Love for Labels

One of the most imperative aspects of staying organized when packing your items for storage is labelling. Be sure to label every box that you pack. Use a permanent marker to write a label on each cardboard box, put a colour-coded sticker system in place, or print out labels for each box with your label-maker. 

Whichever method you choose, stay consistent with it. For example, decide on one colour or name for each room of your home and label each box accordingly. This strategy will aid you greatly in staying organized and aware of the contents of each box. 

When you visit your storage unit at U-STORE-IT, if your boxes are clearly labelled, you will be able to easily locate any items that you may want to bring back into your home. 

Use Space-Saving Bags for Clothing

Do your winter clothes take up too much space? Winter clothing tends to be bulky, and closet clutter is a real problem in your way. However, having a cluttered closet is one of the most easily preventable organization mishaps!

Using space-saving vacuum-sealed storage bags for clothing is a great way to limit the amount of space that your winter clothes take up. By reducing the amount of air and extra volume in the bag, vacuum-sealed storage bags require less room to store.
