Have you taken a good long look at your yard lately? If you have, chances are you’ve been dreaming about more outdoor storage space. If you’re tired of tripping over yard equipment, looking at unsightly weed whackers and lawn mowers or dodging your kids’ outdoor toys, a storage building may be the solution to all your outdoor storage dilemmas.
The best way to contend with your outdoor overcrowding is to add a storage shed to your property. But how can you best prepare for a storage building while you wait for it to be constructed? Here are some storage planning tips to maximize your storage shed experience.
- Get rid of anything you haven’t used in the past year. Have a yard sale, donate your useless outdoor storage items to charity or auction them off on eBay. The less clutter you have to begin with, the less cluttered your new storage building will be.
- Get organized. Arrange your outdoor storage items by category and/or season. When your storage shed is ready, put the items you won’t need for a while in the back so that those outdoor items you do need are at your ready disposal. Rotate the items in your storage shed each season for optimum efficiency.
- Carefully examine each of your outdoor storage items. Is the starter on your grill failing to ignite? Then replace it. Do your inflatable pool toys have leaks? Then toss them. Are the blades on your lawn mower dull? Then get them sharpened. There’s no point in filling up your new storage building with outdoor storage items that don’t work properly.
