Autumn is the perfect time to store away the remnants of summer in your shed; tidying away anything you won't need until next spring. But it doesn't take much for shed clutter to get out of control!
Follow our top tips to find out how to perfectly organise your shed for winter. And remember, organising your shed properly now will save you lots of time and energy in the spring.
Before you start...
Before you start organising your shed for winter, it's a good idea to have a clear out to get rid of anything you no longer need. You'll be surprised how much storage space this will free up!
Then pick up a couple of VELCRO® Brand Easy Hang® Straps. To maximise storage space in your shed, it's important to make as much use of wall space as possible and Easy Hang® Straps are great for hanging large, bulky items on the wall.
How to organise your shed for winter
Bikes are big, bulky and take up a huge amount of floor space. Fortunately, there is a clever way to storage bikes in your shed that is much less space-consuming.
Fix a strong hook to the wall or ceiling of your shed and hang your bike off it with a Easy Hang® Strap. You'll be amazed how much space you instantly free up!
It's unlikely that you'll need any camping chairs over the winter so keep them neat and tidy by creating an organised space for them to be stored over the colder months.
Simply hang each folding chair off the wall of your shed with an Easy Hang® Strap for easy, space-saving storage. When summer swings back round, simply clip them off whenever you need to use them.
Hose pipes & extension leads
Garden hose pipes can take up lots of space in your shed if they're left unravelled on the floor. So use this clever trick to keep them organised all year round.
Every gardener needs a wheelbarrow but they're a pain in the neck to store without taking up all the floor space in your shed. So solve this problem by hanging it off the wall with a large Easy Hang® Strap (they're strong enough to hold up to 120kg!)
