Your home does not need to be big to be comfortable, but sometimes we could all use a little extra space. If you live in an apartment or home that cannot accommodate all of your belongings, consider renting a storage unit near San Mateo. A storage space can give you flexibility and that needed extra room when it comes time to store festive decorations, start up seasonal activities, or retire weather-permitting hobbies.

Tips to Make the Most of Each Season with a Storage Unit near San Mateo
Consider these advantages and packing tips for maximizing the living space in your apartment or house, and make access to seasonal items a breeze in your storage unit near San Mateo:
· Winter – Bulky clothing, festive decorations, and a lot of sports equipment you own may not be needed throughout the year. If you only require certain items during the holidays or during the cooler months, consider storing these items during the remainder of the year. Trees, lights, coats, skis and skates can all be neatly packed into a storage unit and retrieved when you need them. It can be tempting to throw everything into a box, but take the time to properly disassemble your tree, wrap your lights, and sort your clean clothing into appropriate protective storage bins. You will thank yourself next year as the busy holidays approach and your job is made much easier.
· Spring – If you enjoy gardening but only find yourself maintaining the hobby throughout the spring and summer months, it may be wise to bring pots, soil, and garden tools into a storage facility in the winter. Out of harm’s way and out of your way, you may find you grow to love gardening even more.
· Summer – Beach umbrellas, water toys, and summer sports equipment can be more appealing when you see them once a year, during a time when you can actually use them. If you are unsure how much room your off-season belongings will need, use our easy “Space Calculator” for a fast estimate.
· Fall – Rakes, scarves, and Halloween or Thanksgiving decorations can all find a corner in your storage unit. Fall brings crisp air and heavier clothing, but you don’t necessarily need access to all your Thanksgiving feast tools or sweaters earlier in the year. Give them their own home but be sure to look at the calendar before packing things away. Place items needed at the end of the year in first. If they are located near the back, you can avoid climbing over everything in storage to retrieve the one thing you need! Remember to leave a walking avenue down the middle and mark the boxes and bins with their contents clearly, with bold marking pens, so you can find them quickly.
· Consider sectioning off your storage unit so you have ample room for each of the 4 seasons of the year. You can even make a plot plan of where things are for easier retrieval. The more organized you are inside your storage unit, the more efficient will be your use of this valuable space.
