Where Will You Store Your Holiday Decorations?
We know that it’s only the beginning of November, and you’ve probably just gotten all of your holiday decorations out and put up around the house. You’ve decorated for fall, and in a few weeks (once Thanksgiving has passed), you’ll swap everything out for winter decor. You’re not thinking about where you’re going to store everything once the holiday season is over, but if you’ve noticed that the attic, basement, or garage is getting a bit more crowded each year, it might be time to think about renting a self-storage unit. At EZ Storage® in Pittsburgh, we can help you find the ideal space for all of your holiday decorations.
Adding to Your Collection
If you’re someone who goes out and buys a few new pieces of decor each year, you may not think much about it at the time. However, as the years go by, those few pieces can add up to quite a lot, and if you’re running out of storage space, it might be time to put everything somewhere else. You don’t want things to get damaged, and if some of the pieces are rather large (think yard decorations), then there may not be room for them in the garage or attic. A secure storage unit can keep everything safe until the next holiday season rolls around.
Find a Unit Now
Even though Thanksgiving is still three weeks away, now is the time to find the right self-storage unit. Once December has come and gone, people across the city will be scrambling to find the appropriate storage for all of their holiday decorations. Those who wait until the last minute may have to settle for a unit size they don’t want, or a facility that’s not in a convenient location. By finding a space now, you can store some things for a few weeks, and then bring your decorations once the holidays are over.
Keep the Original Packaging
When you buy a piece of decor, you might not think about saving the original packaging. With holiday ornaments and decoration, however, it can be a good idea to save the boxes so that you can safely pack everything up come January. The boxes and packaging are made to hold the pieces securely, and there is most likely a picture of the item on the outside, meaning you won’t have to try to remember what’s inside a blank cardboard box. If you don’t have the original packaging, make sure you take the time to make a list of what you put in each box and write on the outside of each box what the contents are.
You’re looking forward to the upcoming holiday season, but as it does every year, it will be over before you know it. At EZ Storage®, we want you to enjoy this time with friends and family, and if you need a place to store your decorations at the end of the season, we’ll be here to help you find the perfect solutions.
