Memorial Day Weekend: The Perfect Time for Summer Clean Up

A-1 Self Storage | May 24, 2022 @ 12:00 AM

Memorial Day weekend is coming and we're all looking forward to that three-day weekend. You dug out the grill from the garage but had to wade through a lot of boxes of winter clothing and other things to get to it. The thought may have occurred to you that it would have been a lot easier to get to the grill if you didn't have to dig through all the winter stuff. 

Well, why not use the weekend for something in addition to the great grilling you're going to do. Earn those hamburgers and hot dogs by doing a little summer cleanup and putting all those unnecessary winter materials into storage. It's convenient, it will give you much more space, and you'll feel really good about yourself while you're eating that well-earned hot dog. 

Why Is Summer Cleanup Important?

Sure, Spring cleanup is important and it gets all the attention. But why make Spring the only time to do cleanup? In reality, you want to have a clean house all year long.

As mentioned before, you don't want to have trouble finding your grill when you really need it. Likewise, you don't want to have trouble finding anything or get yourself hurt by tripping over the numerous boxes you've accumulated in your garage, shed, basement, or closet.

Cleaning those unnecessary items is a great way to remove clutter and feel good about yourself. Fortunately, Memorial Day offers the right time to do it. It's just before summer officially begins and you get a three-day weekend. That's plenty of time to identify the winter things that you can store for the long summer.

All it takes is gathering your winter belongings and putting them into containers or boxes. But then, the question comes up: Where am I going to put all the containers and boxes that I don't need until next winter? The solution is easy. Put it in a self-storage facility. 

What Is Self-Storage and How Does It Work?

In a world where most of us have too many possessions and not enough space to store them, self-storage is a great option for easily clearing up much-needed space in your house or apartment.

Self-storage is a way of storing your items in a clean and secure location at a self-storage location. Your items are held in an enclosed space, typically 10 feet by 10 feet, with a lock to secure the space. The self-storage location allows access to your belongings during specified hours of the day.

Self-storage facilities offer month-to-month rentals for their storage spaces. You can sign up for a rental online or by visiting a location. Locations also typically sell locks, packing, and moving supplies for your convenience. 

Once you've signed up for your storage unit, just access it and move in. The process is easy, simple, and convenient.
