When the cold begins to infiltrate our homes and our bodies, the last thing we want to see are our beach towels, swimming trunks, bikinis, T-shirts and shorts…What to do with all these things, as it becomes ever more difficult to keep our winter and summer attire in one closet only? At Kuboo we have the solution and some suggestions for you.
Separate your summer clothes, store them in boxes that are easy to identify and put them away in your storage unit. Since you’ll only need summer clothes in a few months, opt to put these boxes behind those that contain things that you’ll need in the winter. You can store these too. And remember that at Kuboo, we have all the necessary material to package your things: from labels to scotch tape to boxes.
When you organize your summer items, don’t forget everything that you use during the season: beach mattresses, floaties, towels, beach toys, camping gear, outdoor furniture…
All of this fits into a Kuboo storage space; units with a variety of sizes to fit your needs. And remember: when you store your seasonal things, make sure that your Christmas tree and decorations stay closer to the entrance, as you’ll be needing those first because -and here come a few more famous quotes- time flies and Christmas is just around the corner!
To properly store your summer clothes remember that some of them may need special care. For example:
- dry beach toys well before storing to avoid humidity or mould.
- make sure that outdoor furniture as well as camping gear is dry when stored so as to prevents cracks in the wood or that fabrics dry rot.
- avoid plastic bags as they create a perfect environment for humidity stains and mould.
As you’re in the process of organizing and separating, take this opportunity to make choices. It’s not only your house that needs to be organized and clean, but your Kuboo also. Store in your unit only what you’ll need in the future.
