If you are frustrated with the lack of living space in your home, you may need to store items that you don’t use on a regular basis. These items can take up valuable space in your home that could be used to make your family more comfortable. If your home has limited space, consider renting a self storage unit. If you think you have the space at your home, here are four tips you can implement to help store your belongings.
Bookshelves are great for storage, display, and organization
Bookshelves help store and organize books and magazines. Shelves are also great for displaying items that you want to keep handy, but don’t use every day. These storage tools do not take up much room and are a good place to safely store and display photographs and collectibles. Bookshelves protect both of these items and get them off your tables so you have some extra space.
Store clothing in waterproof boxes by season
If you watch the stores for sales during late summer when kids go back to school, you can find good prices on plastic tubs with lids. These are perfect items for storing either your winter clothes or summer clothes, depending on the season. These containers will protect clothing from dust and moisture if you have to use an attic or garage as storage.
Your attic and basement make great storage areas
Store larger items like furniture that is in the way or not being used in your attic or basement. These are also good places to store seasonal decoration items, clothes placed in plastic bins, and items children have outgrown. Basements are generally cool, so they are good places for storing wall hangings, antiques, and other delicate items.
What to do if your home or apartment has no storage available
