Now that October is here, you and your family are likely looking forward to the upcoming holidays, starting with Halloween at the end of the month. At EZ Storage® in Philadelphia, we love this time of year, especially because of the holidays that are just around the corner. However, we also know how frustrating it can be to have to search for your holiday decorations, simply because you can’t remember where everything is. We’re here to offer the perfect self-storage unit, so once you do find your boxes of decorations, you can have somewhere safe to store them after the holidays!
In the Attic
The only time you go into the attic is to get something or to put something away. There might be all kinds of boxes and tubs up there, and you may not be sure which ones have your holiday decorations in them. Labeling your boxes is the easiest way to find what you need, and it can make life easier if you separate your Halloween, autumn, and Christmas or Hanukkah decorations into their own boxes.
If you’re not able to access your attic easily, or you’re unable to climb up and down the ladder to get into your attic space, then it might be a good idea to keep your holiday decorations in a different place, such as the garage or a self-storage unit. You may only need them for a few months each year, but they’ll be much easier to get to when it’s time to decorate!
In the Garage
Storing your holiday decorations in the garage can pose the same problems as storing them in the attic — you put them in a certain spot, but throughout the year, you put other things in front of them, or you move them around and forget exactly where they are when you need them. If you have shelving in your garage, then consider dedicating a few spots on each shelf to boxes of decorations. Again, labeling is key here, and it’s important that you’re able to see what’s written on each box without having to take it down or open it.
Should the garage feel too cluttered or crowded, it might be a good idea to look into renting a small storage space. This can be especially beneficial if you have lots of decorations to store each year, and you’re always buying more things every holiday season.
In a Self-Storage Unit
Perhaps you already have a self-storage unit, and that’s where your holiday decorations are kept. If that’s the case, then it’s a good idea to get the boxes you need for October sooner rather than later. At EZ Storage®, we offer access on every day of the year, so you can stop by when it works for you to get your boxes. If you don’t have a space with us, but you would like to see what we offer, then come by one of our metro-area locations today!
It can be smart to take the boxes you need now home with you, and then retrieve the next holiday’s decorations when you bring those boxes back. Again, be sure to label all of your boxes clearly and make sure that your storage unit is organized so that you don’t have to spend time sorting through everything just to find the box you need!
