Completing Your Fall To-Do List

When fall rolls around every year, the first thing many people do is create a to-do list of things that need to get done around the house. Chores such as raking leaves, putting away patio furniture, and other tasks are important to complete before the first snowfall. At EZ Storage® in Philadelphia, we can help you find the right self-storage unit for anything that you want to put away as you’re completing your fall to-do list.

Cleaning Up Leaves

As soon as fall arrives, your mind likely turns to one thing — cleaning up leaves. While there may not be too many in your yard quite yet, you know that over the next few weeks, there will be plenty of red and yellow leaves covering the ground. It’s important to take the opportunity to rake when you can so that leaves don’t pile up and overwhelm you. Remember that your roof and gutters may also have leaves that need to be cleaned out, so make sure that you have a reliable ladder that can help you reach those spots.

Once you’re done with your rakes, ladder, and other items, you may want to store them somewhere safe for the remainder of the year. Renting an affordable storage space can be the best way to keep your belongings protected without taking up valuable space in your house or garage.

Cleaning Out the Garage

Speaking of the garage, cleaning it out may be high on your fall to-do list. You may have deposited random things in the garage over the summer, but now you need the parking space for your car or truck. Putting away bikes, gardening tools, and other items can give you the room you need to park your vehicle inside during the fall and winter months. Plus, you’ll have more room to work on those indoor projects that you want to get done during the colder days of the year.

If you come across anything in the garage that you want to put into storage, then we can help you find the ideal space. We offer access hours on every day of the year, so you can stop by your unit when it works for you!

Swap Out Your Wardrobe

While a majority of the things on your to-do list concern your house and your yard, it’s also important not to forget about your own needs. You’re going to need a warmer wardrobe for the fall and winter, which means you’ll need to put away those t-shirts and shorts that you wore all summer. As you’re swapping out items in your closet, you can avoid clutter by putting seasonal apparel into sturdy plastic tubs. These tubs can then be put in the garage, under the bed, or into your self-storage space. Regardless of where you put them, you’ll be glad that you have more space in your closet for jeans, sweatshirts, and other cold-weather clothing!
