Declutter Before a Hurricane

“A tropical disturbance is forming outside Florida” is an anxiety provoking phrase for most South Floridians.

Many of us have heard the horrible stories of Hurricane Andrew or have lived through the havoc a major tropical storm or hurricane created and we don’t take our chances with mother nature.

And yet, we often find ourselves out of breath and in a mad rush to prepare at the last minute. Cluttered garages, loose backyard items, and sheds with a disarray of stuff that hasn’t been touched in several years tends to get in the way when we are looking around to prepare for a natural disaster.


Getting rid of clutter in the home is a great way to be prepared during a disaster and to protect your family. Stow Simple will help jumpstart this process with minimum work on your end.
