Travelling overseas or going to the beach are the most popular things to do for the summer holidays. However, people are now changing their summer trip plans due to the COVID-19 pandemic. More people are choosing camping trips that respect social distancing. If you are keen on going on a camping trip as well, check out these three essential tips.


  1. Prepare your camping gear using a checklist

This list should include: a tent, sleeping bags, folding chairs, lighting and a first-aid kit. Since the camping site is far away from the city, bringing the right equipment is very important and having a checklist will definitely help you remember the important items.


  1. Choosing a camping site

A good camping site for beginners is a town nearby with good facilities and amenities. Go online to check out campsites in your area, and you will realise that there are so many options to choose from. If you have pets, you need to check in advance to find out if pets are allowed. On the campsite, try to find a flat, clean and even ground to set up your tent. Beware of any sharp rocks or debris, as an uneven ground may damage your tent and affect the comfort of your sleep.


  1. Bring a quilt and some extra clothes

Camping is an outdoor activity that is impacted by the weather conditions, and you might experience cold at night as the temperature drops. So bringing waterproofing items, extra clothes and a quilt to the campsite is highly recommended – add them to your checklist!

Camping gear is bulky and takes up space. If you are running out of space to store your camping gear, maybe Extra Space can help.

Winter is here, and we know that it can be hard to organise your winter clothes. They are heavy and bulky – think about all that fur, suede and leather you have to lug around! Here are 3 ways to prep your closet for the winter season.


1.Clear the clothes you don’t wear

It’s time to replace your summer clothes before winter falls. The first step is to review all the clothing you have in your closet. Pull out everything and review each item – what to discard, donate and keep? If you’ve not worn something in three years, chances are you may not be needing it anymore. Leave only the essentials and make room for more closet space.


2.Sort by material

Instead of organising your clothes based on the frequency of use, try sorting them by their materials. This way, you can get a complete look at what clothes you have under each category. Arrangements like this are ideal for winter wear.


3.Consider Self-Storage

Got a designer limited edition piece that you may not wear during winter? It’s time to give self-storage a try. By storing in a storage facility like Extra Space Asia, you can free your closet space at home. You can also enjoy the freedom to access your not-so-frequently-used items 24/7, any time, any day. You’ll also be assured that everything is in good hands. Extra Space Asia’s storage unit is air-conditioned, so your temperature-sensitive items can always be kept in their best condition.
