christmas-treeSelf storage units are the perfect solution for storing holiday decorations. Holiday decor can be bulky and take up a lot of space – it’s also something that you only use once a year. By moving these items to a storage unit, you’ll free up household storage space for things that you need access to on a regular basis.

When determining what holiday items to move to your self storage unit, there are a few simple steps you can take to make the process simple and streamlined:

Be thorough – You want to make sure to gather all your boxes of holiday decorations, to ensure that you have all the pieces together before you start sorting. Open each box and carefully go through the contents.

Be honest – Have you upgraded to new decorations without getting rid of the older stuff? Do you have more holiday decor than you could possibly use? Be honest with yourself and only keep the pieces that you love and use.

Be organized – Sort the items you’ve decided to keep, neatly in sturdy containers that are easy to move and stack. Make sure to label all the sides of each storage container so that the contents are easy to locate.

Be strategic – Since you’re in the sorting and organizing mood, make sure to look around your house and see if there’s anything else that could be moved to your self storage unit, like out of season clothes and sporting goods.

Be a savvy shopper – Make sure you find a self storage unit that has features that fit your needs. Look for one that is in a safe, convenient location for easy access. Choose a size large enough for all of your self storage needs.

By using these tips you’ll be able to clear out storage space for the things you really need to have on hand year round. And you’ll know that your holiday decorations are safely stored and easy to access the next time you need them.
