Time to get the most out of the Year End Sale!
It’s that time of the year again. School Holiday Sale, Christmas Sale, Festive Season Sale, Year End Sale, Back to School Sale, New Year Sale, you name it! Crazy deals and bargains await you at the mall making now, the best time to shop.
Before you go all out with your shopping list, there are things to consider. Be it the new furniture that you’ve been price watching or clothing and accessories that you are looking to add to your wardrobe, you need to make sure you have the space for it. Quite often, the new furniture just seems to take up a little more space or the new coat just managing to overflow your already overcrowded wardrobe. There are clever and easy ways to free up space such as using self storage.
Here are some useful tips for storing your items and keeping them in mint condition!
- Wash, wipe, clean, dry!
Before storing, be sure to clean and dry all the items you have decided to keep as existing stains and whiffs will only set in permanently over time and you wouldn’t want to be pulling out a greasy pan or stained shirt from the box when you need it. Plus, it’ll get all your other items in the box dirty as well.
- Place items neatly in the box
Fold the clothes neatly to avoid unwanted creases, don’t just roll them up into balls and throw them in – or you might just have to spend hours ironing them out, the next time you plan on wearing them! For added measure, separate the clothing with acid-free pH-neutral tissue paper to prevent discolouration and mould from growing. Be sure to wrap all fragile items such as dishes and glassware with bubble wrap or newspaper and remember to fill up those empty spaces in the boxes with newspaper to prevent the items from breaking when it gets stacked or transported.
- Seal it up and label
Tape both ends of the box with good masking tape to prevent the items from falling out during transportation should it get turned sideways or upside down. Next, label the boxes so you know what’s inside each box. Your future self will thank you for it! No need to go through the whole stack looking for that specific dress or shirt you plan on wearing at your friend’s wedding reception. Plus, if you have the time, coming up with an inventory list would be a great idea!
- Store in a clean, cool and dry area
Be sure to store the boxes in a cool, dry place with good air circulation and avoid placing boxes under direct sunlight and musty storerooms. Don’t have a place that fits the description above?
