Finally Declutter the House

5 Ways to Celebrate the Yankee's Spring Training in Bronx, NY

Yankees fans in Wakefield and throughout Bronx, NY are preparing for the coming season. Spring training is right around the corner as the Yankees prepare for their first game against the Philadelphia Phillies on February 24. If you're a die-hard fan, Safeguard Self Storage has a few tips for celebrating the Yankees' return to the grass this spring.

Celebrate Spring Training With These 5 Tips

1. Subscribe to a Major League Baseball package.

Can't make it to the Yankees spring games in Tampa? No worries. An MLB cable package will keep you up to date on all of the action. Alternatively, you can subscribe directly to MLB. com and watch spring games on your computer, phone, tablet, or any other compatible device.

2. Throw a spring training party.

Watching the spring games is more fun with some friends around. Plan a spring training party for when the Yankees meet the Phillies. You can supply a few snacks like bags of peanuts, pretzels with dip, hot dogs and other treats to satisfy everyone's hunger for food and a winning season in 2017.

3. Coach a Little League baseball team.

Coaching makes you part of a team and gives you a chance to teach kids how to play the game with sportsmanship. When the Yankees aren't playing on TV, you can stay immersed in baseball by coaching a Little League team in your area. If you have kids, get them involved, and help them develop their skills and an appreciation for the game.

4. Get out and toss the ball around.

If it's been a while since you visited a baseball diamond, why not take a trip back in time and re-live your childhood? Put on your glove, grab a bat and a few baseballs, and head to the nearest ballpark in Bronx, NY. You can play a pickup game with friends or share your love for America's pastime with your kids.

5. Convert a room into a sports den.

Need your own personal space for watching the games? Turn an unused room into a sports den. Make room for sports memorabilia, cushy chairs, and more with a self storage unit.

Storing Summer Clothes for the Winter Season

Cooler weather is finally here. It's time to put away your summer sun dresses and get out those boots and sweaters. If you live in Bronx, NY, finding room to store your seasonal wardrobe can be a challenge. Extra household space is a luxury that you may not have. Fortunately, you have a great storage option outside of your small home or apartment. Simply contact the nearest residential and business storage facility in your area, and rent a self storage unit to hold your summer treasures safely while you ride out the winter. To ensure that your shorts and bikinis are in top shape when you're ready to retrieve them, here are a few tips from Safeguard Self Storage for storing summer clothes. 

Essential Summer Wardrobe Storage Tips

  • Browse through your summer wardrobe, and remove items you never wear. If you didn't wear it this past summer, you probably won't wear it again. Donate these items, or offer them to family members. Don't force them to take up room in your tiny Bronx, NY space.
  • Organize your clothing by type and then by fabric, so you'll be able to store them properly and find them quickly later.
  • Before storing any item of clothing, wash and dry it thoroughly. Even if you’ve only worn it for a few minutes, residue from body oil, sunscreen, deodorant and colognes can degrade the fabric after the item has been stored for several months.
  • Avoid using chlorine bleach, fabric softeners and starch products on your clothes before storing them.
  • If you're using wardrobe boxes, hang garments on well-shaped hangers. Heavy fabrics that tend to droop or stretch and light, delicate items that become misshapen easily should be folded neatly instead of hung.
  • Don't store your clothing in nylon or plastic bags. It encourages mildew growth and can cause yellowing of fabrics. If you need extra protection, use a garment bag, or drape a cotton sheet over vulnerable items.
  • To protect delicate folded items, place them inside a cotton pillow case.
  • Avoid using moth balls to keep insects away. The smell can be difficult to remove and may even be toxic. Try cedar chips or lavender blocks instead.
  • Be sure to remove dirt and smudges from your sandals, flip-flops and sneakers before storing them.

Climate-Controlled Bronx, NY, Home and Business Storage

To keep your clothes fresh and intact, consider renting a climate controlled self storage unit for winter and summer storage. With around-the-clock control of temperature and humidity levels, you'll never have to worry about extreme cold or heat damaging synthetic fabrics, and you won't find disgusting mold or mildew on your favorite sun dress. Check local rates today, and keep your seasonal clothing changeovers easy and affordable.
