Daylight savings time has arrived once again to usher in more sunlight during the day. On March 12, it's time again to spring ahead and to welcome in the coming spring and summer seasons. With more daylight, the theory was, that you could be more productive. When daylight savings was put into practice, this was a major deciding factor. While electricity and technology now allow us to be productive at all times of the day, we can still take advantage of daylight savings – especially with the help of self storage.

How did Daylight Savings Time get Started?

The practice of turning the clock forward and backward has been around since the early 1900s. Germany was the first country to adopt daylight savings time, with the United States following soon after. In fact, the U.S. repealed this practice in 1919 even though some cities and states continued to manipulate their clocks. It came back in full force during the Second World War and was pushed mainly by businesses to take advantage of the extra daylight hours.

3 Ways to Be Productive During Daylight Saving Time

 Many people use the extra hours to spring-clean their homes. You can move clutter from the garage and your home into self storage, to make room for a tool shop, more organization, or your new hobby.
