Your Summer To-Do List

Cluttered bed room and text "Your summer to-do list"

May is now here, which means that summer isn’t far away. You might have already started your summer to-do list, and hopefully you have some fun planned along with your warm-weather chores. At EZ Storage®, we’re here to help you make more room at home, and if you’re looking for self-storage units in Philadelphia, we can help you find the ideal space. We have units of all sizes, and you can choose between our standard and climate-controlled options.

1. Clean Out the Garage

dreamstime_m_20399133You may dread this task every summer, but it’s important to clean out the garage to make room for the bikes, the lawnmower, and everything else you’re going to need during the warmer months of the year. You might have stashed the holiday decorations in the garage at the beginning of the year, but if you want to park the car inside or make room for your motorcycle, then it’s a good idea to clean things out before the season starts. You can put some items in storage, and then donate or toss those things you no longer need or want.

2. Organize Your Closets

If winter coats and apparel are still taking up room in your closets, then now is a great time to go through each closet and organize things. You might need to make room for your new summer wardrobe, and putting cold-weather clothing into storage can make the most sense. If you have a storage closet that’s filled with random stuff, then take an hour or two to go through it and decide what you need to keep and what you can store or toss.

3. Get Away for a Few Days

Among all the chores and the housework, it’s important to get away for a few days and enjoy the warm weather. You might be planning to take a vacation to the beach, or you may be staying in town and going to a Phillies game or heading to your favorite museum or art gallery. Whatever the case may be, if you’re going to be gone and you want to store some items, or you need to keep a vehicle safe, then we can help you find the best solution.

4. Spend Time with Family and Friends

Summer is often the only time you can get away for a few days, and it’s also often the only time you can see family and friends. People are taking time off of work to visit friends and relatives, and scheduling in family time can make your summer much more enjoyable. If you have people coming to stay with you, and you need to clear out the spare bedroom for guests, then you can bring those extra belongings to your storage space. We’ll keep everything safe for as long as you need, and you can pick it up and take it back home once everyone has left!

5. Renovate Your Backyard

dreamstime_17117221With family coming to stay, or with plans to stay home for a few days this summer, you don’t want to spend all of your time inside. If your backyard could use some renovation, then why not take advantage of the warm weather and create a new outdoor space for you and your family? You can finally put up that swingset that the kids have been wanting, or you can have that new patio installed where you can spend every summer evening sipping lemonade and enjoying each other’s company. If there are things you need to move out of the yard while you work on it, then we can provide the ideal self-storage unit.

At EZ Storage® in Philadelphia, we’re dedicated to helping you find the right storage solution for your belongings. It doesn’t matter if you need to store things for two or three months, or you’re looking for a long-term option for those items you just don’t have room for – our facilities have the choices you need. Every unit is available on a month-to-month basis, and our staff members can help you choose the appropriate size.
