It’s that time of year again: the cold, dark months are upon us. And if you’re like me, the only thing you want to do is curl up in your bed with a warm blanket and your cat. But there are some things that need to be stored inside—especially if you want them to survive the winter without being totally destroyed by frostbite or hypothermia.
If you’re looking for a place to store your stuff, we have some tips.
If you have furniture that needs to be stored, there are a few things you should consider. The first is the type of material it is made from. For example, if your bed frame is made out of metal and not wood or plastic, then it’s going to get too hot in the summer (and vice versa). If you’re storing pillows and cushions in storage boxes with lids on top of them (this will help keep them warm), make sure they’re being kept away from sunlight as well!
You might think that your grandfather’s garden tools are safe in the garage or attic, but they’re not. These areas can get very cold during the winter and could damage or break apart your grandfather’s prized collection of gardening tools. If you want to save them for later use, then storing them in an open space where they won’t be exposed to high levels of humidity is best—like a shed or garage.
If you have an extra vehicle, make sure it’s in good condition. If the car is in good condition and you’re likely to get around to using it this winter, store it. Be sure to keep the battery charged and the oil changed so that your vehicle will run smoothly when needed.
We hope that this article has given you some ideas about things to store in the winter for your own use or for friends and family. Remember, if you need help with storage, we’ve got it covered!
