From front-porch flying bats and ghouls to life-sized skeletons and coffins, Americans are spending more than ever on Halloween decorations and costumes. If you have a scary collection of décor and costumes to store and pull out each Halloween, you'll want to follow these tips to keep them in optimal shape.
Use your storage unit to shelter out of season equipment or hobby items that you might otherwise keep in your garage. If you have a carpentry project, for example, that you know you won't get to for a few months, move the wood and tools to your unit – and park your vehicle in your garage.
If you are in the process of moving, your storage unit is an ideal place to safely store your electronic technology. Before you move any technology, take a quick photo of the back of the item so you will know how to reconnect the wires when you're ready to set it up in your new residence.
If your closets are bursting with clothing, shoes, bedding and towels, select what you need and pack the rest in labeled boxes. Also consider overstuffed drawers or cabinets in your kitchen or home office. You can store and move these beloved items to your new home once a sale is finalized.
