13 Large Winter Items You Should Store for the Summer

It’s difficult having to prepare for winter and summer in Canada. One requires less clothing and gardening tools, while the other requires heavy clothing and winter apparel, as well as machinery and tools only used in the winter.

Storing Sweaters

When summer nears, all of the winter items should be stored away to avoid cluttering the home. There are many winter items that people don’t necessarily consider when they are getting ready for summer until they realize that these items are taking up space at their residence.

Winter Items to Store Away over the Warmer Weather Months

  1. Snowplows
  2. Snow Shovels
  3. Sweaters
  4. Winter Apparel (Gloves, Hats, Scarves, etc.)
  5. Boots
  6. Coats
  7. Snow Blowers
  8. Unused Rock Salt
  9. Ice Scrapers
  10. Snowmobiles
  11. Holiday Décor
  12. Skis
  13. Snowboards

All of the above items take up an immense amount of space. Some people have a shed that they can store away these items in, while others find themselves tripping over them while making their way through the garage. It can become a big inconvenience when there is nowhere to store such items over the longer warm weather months.

Consider storing away your winter items in a storage unit. By renting a storage unit, you can pack away all items that are able to be boxed, such as your winter apparel, so they’re not taking up residence in your home while unused. This will keep them safe from harm, yet out of the house. You won’t need to mess with tons of unused winter items and equipment to find what you need during the summer months.

If you decide to store away these items in a storage unit, make sure that you rent a unit large enough to safely store all of the items. If you have a lot of winter machinery, a large storage unit is best. If you are simply using the unit to store away winter clothing and other small items, you might be safe with a unit large enough to hold several boxes.

If you are storing away a lot of winter clothes and accessories, you will want to be sure that you store the clothing items away properly. Wash all items before you fold them up and place them in airtight containers for storage. This will prevent them from becoming odorous or getting ruined. Think of smart ways to keep the clothes and accessories organized so that when you pull them out for next year, you can easily access everything after picking the containers up from the storage unit!
