Getting rid of unnecessary items is the first step towards ensuring you have enough storage space at home. People often find it hard to get rid of items that remind them of other stages of their lives. However, you have to careful and not hold onto items that will simply take up space and not bring you any benefits. A spring clean is the perfect opportunity to get rid of things you no longer need. Open the drawers and wardrobes and you are likely to find something you forgot you had.
Keep Your Most Used Items within Reach
You should keep items you need on a regular basis in an area that is easy to reach. That area is usually the space between your knees and your shoulders. Think about the items you use the most and make them easily available. Anything that is used rarely should go in higher or lower spaces. Use storage containers to keep everything organised. Try to group similar items so they are easier to find. Clear storage containers would be very helpful to keep things under the bed or in the garage.
The space above your head is very valuable, especially in small apartments or houses. Use the space on top of wardrobes and shelves to store items you need on holiday or for special seasons, such as Christmas. Buy attractive storage boxes rather than using cardboard so they don’t clash with your décor Do not store heavy items in high areas. Always measure the space to avoid buying shelves or boxes that are too big or too small.
