Fall is (Almost) Upon Us

Believe it or not, fall is just around the corner! Although we are currently experiencing an excessive heat warning in many parts of California, fall officially begins on September 22nd. Plan ahead now, and you’ll be ready for the change.

Fall Closet OrganizationOut with the summer, in with the fall! Long sleeves, sweaters, and boots are bulky and take up more room than summer clothes. Start thinking about rotating your closet and putting away summer items to make space. If you already have a storage unit, now is a great time to start sorting through your current closet to decide what items you want to rotate out. While you’re at it, think about placing them towards the back of your storage unit, and  bringing your winter items and decorations towards the front to save you time later.

If you don’t have a storage unit, we can help you with that. We offer small units to help make some extra room for your winter wardrobe, or larger units to accommodate outside furniture and toys that you may want to store during the cooler months. Give our storage experts a call at 1-800-210-8979. We can help you find the perfect size for your storage needs.
