It’s the time for planning vacation days, new adventures, and making new resolutions. The new year brings a lot of possibilities! One of the best investments you can make in the new year, is purchasing a long lasting, well built portable building.
Why should you start the new year with a new shed? Here are six reasons to consider as you make plans for days ahead.
The holiday season brings on a lot of extra unnecessary clutter. New decorations, wrapping paper, new toys, tools and larger gift items. It can be a hassle as you struggle to find space for everything when you’re already very aware of the little space you have left.
Here are 5 ways to declutter after Christmas and start the new year organized and clutter free!
Setting New Year’s resolutions are always a tricky business. It’s important to take time to reflect on the resolutions you made for the previous year and how successful you were at achieving them.
In fact, one-third of New Year’s resolutions don’t even make it to the end of January. The reason for this high number of forgotten promises is that those resolutions weren’t the right ones.
Packing your things for storage can be a major undertaking. But the more work you put in now, the less frustration and heartache you’ll have when you need the items again.
Portable buildings are a great asset after a big move, remodel or just for everyday storage. Cook Portable Warehouses builds their sheds to last, so your belongings stay safe and dry. Read about what Cook promises to each of their customers!
- Clean everything.
You may not think you need to clean stuff, but it will help in the preservation of whatever you are storing. This way you can ensure there aren’t any bugs hidden in the items before you store them. Also, when it comes to unpack the items, if stored correctly, you’ll have less dust and dirt to wipe off.
- Purchase the proper packing materials.
Plastic storage bins with lids are probably the best things to use since they are not as susceptible to the elements, such as humidity. Unlike a cardboard box, you can tightly seal these storage bins.
You also want to get packing materials that will help you keep your items safe, especially the more fragile items. To save a little on packing materials, keep old towels and rags to wrap items in.
Temperatures will continue to dip so now is the time to begin thinking through how you'll store items through winter. In your garage? Your shed? Under the bed?
Whether it's summer clothes or outdoor lawn equipment, you'll need a safe place to store it during the colder months.
The great thing is that a Cook shed makes this process so much easier! Cook sheds are available in many different styles to fit your needs. You can even split up your space, the Lofted Barn being a great option if you’re needing room for storage but also for large equipment. Or, the Handyman offers two spaces for you to enjoy your hobby and also store extra belongings.
So, as a part of your fall cleaning routine, put away those summer items until you need them again. You want to make sure you put these items away in a secure spot, away from bugs and the elements. Cook portable buildings help you declutter the garage and your closets so you have room for seasonal clothes, recreational items and equipment.
