I found myself with this problem a few years back, after I moved a bunch of extra stuff that I had inherited into storage. However, your storage unit doesn't have to become an unsightly mess. This blog is all about simplifying your storage space by helping you to organize things.

3 Reasons Why A Small Self-Storage Unit Is Great For Camping And Outdoor Gear

Jackson Russell

There are so many ways small self-storage units get used. People sometimes rent one for keepsakes, furniture, or appliances. Another great use for small storage units is camping and outdoor activity storage. Read below for three reasons why small self-storage units are great for outdoor sports and activities:

1: You have a safe space for your items 

One of the things you will be glad to know about a small storage unit is it can give you a very safe space for your camping and outdoor gear. You will rent the unit, lock the unit with your own lock, and keep the key. Most self-storage units have several types of security measures in place to protect all the units on the property. Some of the common types of security measures include gates that require card or code access, security cameras throughout the property, and sometimes even security guards on-site. 

2: You can organize the storage unit

Even small self-storage units are big enough for you to bring in a shelving unit you can assemble and use in order to organize the items you decide to put in the storage unit. This helps you to keep all your gear right where you can easily find it. This way, if you are going camping, you can just swing by the self-storage unit and quickly grab the things you need. Just some examples of the items you may want to store include fishing rods, tents, coolers, and many others. These can be things that are difficult to find a space for around your home. However, a storage unit can store them well. 

3: You can free up a lot of space around your home

When you don't have a special place for all your outdoor and camping gear at your home, you can end up storing things in many different places. This can cause you to misplace things you'll need. When you can't find them, you either have to do without those things or buy more, which is a waste of money. Also, some may end up getting damaged because they aren't stored in a safe space. A small self-storage unit allows you to go around the house and gather all your gear and move it to a better place. Not only will you have it all together, but you can clean the home and organize the rest of your stuff.
