5 Tips for Tidying After the Holidays

Holiday hustle and bustle can leave you with a big mess.

Whether you hosted family, had kids home from college, or went on an out-of-town vacation, the disorder of the post-holiday home can be frustrating and stressful. That’s no way to ring in the new year; StoreYourBoard can help you conquer the clutter and start 2023 on the right foot.

1. Clear Out the Clutter

Out with the old and in with the new! As the year comes to an end, the hope of starting the next year fresh may give you some extra motivation to clear out things you don’t use anymore. It’s also a good opportunity to make room for the new things you’ve acquired over the year. After you get rid of unneeded items, you’ll make space for new gear and organization systems.

2. Invest in a New Storage System

Random assortments of racks and shelves can be displeasing to the eye and add to the illusion of clutter, even if they are technically helping you keep your space tidy.

But, if you’re seeking visual harmony in your garage or other storage space, the solution is an all-in-one storage system. This will keep your space in order and give it a more cohesive look. With minimal effort, it will look like you put a lot of thought into the layout.

The G-System is the package you need. It delivers on sleek design and coordination that adds to the atmosphere of a space. Storage for items like bikes and tools doesn’t have to take away from the look of your space; when you install something well-designed and tailored to your specific gear collection, it will bring your space together.

3. Store Bulky Holiday Gifts and Gear

By the end of the year, you may find yourself with more gear than you had when the year started. Bikes for the kids, new kayaks from summer adventuring, and family ski gear can fill up a garage fast.

Solve the clutter problem with racks made to store each type of gear you have. From space-saving Swivel Bike Wall Racks to the Teal Triangle G-Watersport for kayaks, surfboards, and paddleboards, StoreYourBoard has a storage solution for all types of gear.

4. Hoist Your Cargo Box

Cargo boxes are lifesavers for road trips, but they are so inconvenient to store when you get back home. If you have one, it might end up staying on the floor of your garage between uses. With the right storage option, you could get your space back when the holiday season is over.

The Teal Triangle Elite Cargo Hoist and the Essential Cargo Hoist are two pulley system options that will help you lift your cargo box up to store overhead. Since cargo boxes are used only a few times a year, it's especially convenient to hoist them; you don't need frequent access to them. Plus, from overhead, they won't take up any of your prime storage real estate.

5. Install Extra Shelving

The post-holiday season often involves loading up bins and boxes of lights, wrapping supplies, lawn decorations, and more. Give yourself more storage surfaces to work with by installing more shelving! The Teal Triangle G-Shelf is heavy-duty, reliable, and ready to accommodate all of your accoutrements.
