How to Use Your Storage Space
When you move your items in to storage, if you arrange your items well, you can make the most of the space. For instance, you may need to store your summer sports equipment and also your snow skis, snowshoes, and Holiday decorations. So, try to put these items at the front of the space where you can easily access them. You will have to prioritize them according to which season is coming up sooner, but leave the later season’s gear not far behind. Then, you can facilitate an easier switch when that time comes.
You’ll want to save as much space as possible. So, try to consolidate your items as well as you can. If you’ve unpacked some of your books for the house but are storing the rest, work on putting them all in the same box. If you’re storing a dresser, you can fill those drawers with items. Use masking tape to label the drawers in case you need to access some of the contents later. If you are so inclined, you might also want to invest in some inexpensive metal shelves so that items can be easily accessed. This is best for the things you will be most likely to return for, such as tools, sports equipment, and clothing.
Know What You Store!
We’ve seen customers make an itemized list of the items in storage. This will be helpful later if, for example, you go searching for a special sweater and cannot find it anywhere. You look high and low because you know you didn’t put it in storage. However, you did, and if it’s on the list you can save yourself time and a few worry lines. For those of us who love the computer, make a list on your computer and even back it up in a service like Google Drive, which can be accessed using a smartphone.
