Most people think of self-storage when they have a lot to store away for another day, but storage units are not always large. The majority of storage companies offer small, conservatively sized units about the size of a large closet, and these units can be just as valuable as their larger counterparts. If you have been toying with the idea of renting a storage unit but really don't need anything big, a small unit could be the best thing ever. Here is a look at a few ways to use a small self-storage unit.
1. Store your seasonal items
The revolving list of holidays gives ample opportunity to dress up your home and hold special activities. However, all the little things you have around to decorate and entertain with during these holidays really need a place to go during the off-season. Your Christmas tree, inflatable yard decorations, and Fourth of July decorations can all be safely tucked away in a small storage unit.
2. Clear out closet clutter by separating your apparel
Your closet might be stuffed to the max with clothes suitable for all the different seasons. As great as it may be to have coats, clothes, and shoes for every season, this can mean you have to wade through a lot of items you do not use at all during certain parts of the year. A small storage unit can be the perfect solution for clearing clutter in your closet. Invest in a few sealable plastic containers, and tuck away what you don't wear.
3. Make room in your kitchen
Maybe you love to entertain guests with extravagant dinners and get-togethers. However, all that stuff you use when you entertain really takes up too much space when it is not in use. Rent a small self-storage unit and place those extra items in the unit that only get used for special occasions. Whether it is the fine china, service platters, or extra fold-open tables and chairs for seating, these items are well-kept in your unit.
4. Clear your garage of outdoor stuff
Camping gear, picnic canopies, kayaks, fishing poles, croquet sets — all of these are items that you will likely only use on occasion, so having them taking up space in your garage is a little frustrating. Find yourself a small self-storage unit nearby so you can store this stuff until it's needed. You'll end up with far more room in your garage.Share
