Winter uses

There are a lot of summer items that can end up getting in the way or even causing problems during the winter months. There's no reason for you to have these things taking up space all winter long when you aren't even going to be using them. Some of these things can include the yard tools and equipment you may not end up needing during those colder months. Things like rakes and lawnmowers would fit into this category. Also, there may be all of your summer toys. These things can include very large ones like your boat or jet skis. Then, there may be your water skis, your fishing gear, and all of your other toys and warm weather fun-time equipment. There can also be the outdoor furniture you get plenty of use out of during nice weather. Tables and chairs you don't want to be exposed to a harsh winter can be protected in storage. 

Summer uses

As soon as summer comes, you may want to pull out all of your winter equipment and toys. You can use a storage unit to store all those snow shovels, bags of salt, space heaters, extra blankets, winter clothing, and winter dog houses. You'll also be able to put things like your snowmobile, sleds, and other toys in the unit. With all of these things out of the way, you can enjoy the warmer days and nights without these things cluttering up the spaces you want to use. 

Holiday uses

You can also use a storage unit for all of your holiday, party, and other celebration items. Many of these things will generally only need to be accessed once a year, so it may not make sense to have them just sitting around the house wasting space. They can include things like banquet tables and chairs you have to pull out for special occasions when you are hosting. It can also include centerpieces and dinnerware for events. Plus, the storage unit can make it easy to organize your various holiday decorations and other items by giving you a space where you can put up your own shelving.
