Prepare For The Holidays Using Your Storage

Prepare For The Holidays Using Your StorageWith tons of items you have acquired throughout the past years, from clothes to kitchen utensils, your home is probably filled with things that are not being used anymore. So before the holiday season even comes, start de-cluttering your home to make room for the gifts and the visitors that will soon arrive. If you’re feeling a bit overwhelmed and you don’t know where to start, we’re here to give you some tips on how you can organise your home for the holidays.


Can’t seem to hang your newly bought clothes in your wardrobe? It might be time to store away some of the old ones. Clothes are one of the major sources of clutter in your home. As such, it is important to keep your wardrobe under control. To organise your clothes, remove them from your closet and group them accordingly. Separate your daily wardrobe from your out-of-season clothing. Arrange your holiday clothes and special occasion attire in a box and put it in your rented storage. Since you won’t be using your summer clothes and hats within the next months, it would be ideal to pack them away. This way, you’ll have a tidier closet and you’ll have more space available for use.

Old decorations

If you have already decorated your home for Christmas and you still got some leftover decors, consider putting them in the storage facility. Clearing them away will make more room for the gifts that you will receive and your new purchases.

Bikes and toys

If you have children, there’s a good chance that your home is already full of toys With Christmas just around the corner, it is likely that they’ll get more in the coming weeks. Before another surge of toys comes in, try to minimise what you already have. Ask your children to help you sort through their toys to decide what to keep and what to store away. If your child has a bike that he/she has outgrown, you can put it in your storage unit temporarily until you find out whom to give it to or where to donate it.

Kitchen tools

It’s no secret that during the holidays, the kitchen is one of the busiest places in the house. So before the festive season takes hold, consider de-cluttering your kitchen. Pack away your duplicate utensils, kitchenware and any unused equipment. Having an organised kitchen will make it easier for you to find what you’re looking for and will allow you to move well.


If you have unused electronics that are still stuck in your home such as computers, laptops and printers, consider selling the ones that are still working and bring the broken ones to a recycling centre. For other large electronics that are not in use but you intend to keep, like television and sound system units, you can put them in your storage unit instead.

Furniture and equipment

If you happen to have visitors coming from out of town for the holidays, make sure to clear out all the big items that you’re storing in your guest room. You may put your unused furniture and gym equipment in the storage facility in the meantime to allow your guests to move comfortably in your house throughout their stay.
