It doesn’t matter if you live in a small one-bedroom apartment or a three-story home. Everyone fills the space they have, and before you know it, you feel like the walls are closing in! A household storage plan can go a long way towards getting control of all that stuff in your house that’s taking up space.
Assess Your In-Home Storage
The first step in any storage plan is to assess the storage that’s already in your home. That means taking a closer look in those upstairs bedroom closets, the back room of the basement, and the upper shelves of the garage.
As you take a closer look at all that stuff, you may find that some of it can be tossed or donated. In addition, you may discover that with better packing techniques, you can maximize the space. For example, vacuum bags are a great way to store seasonal clothing and bedding.
Know What Stuff Is Best to Have Professionally Stored
When you’ve finished your in-home assessment, you may realize you require additional household storage services. This is likely to be the case if you live in a small space or you have been living in your current home for many years. That’s where professional storage comes in!
You just have to know what stuff to consider putting in storage. A few ideas include:
- Seasonal décor, like Christmas decorations and Halloween costumes
- Files, like tax records and personal documents
- Keepsake items, like yearbooks, photos, and children's artwork
- Sporting equipment, like snowboards, kayaks, and outdoor games
The key is to look for items that you only need once every year or two. If it has been between 6 and 12 months since you looked in that box in the garage, chances are, it can be professionally stored.
