holidays are quickly approaching and so are oodles of gifts and new things for
your home. Closets are overflowing with coats, jackets
and sweaters, kitchen cabinets are stacked to the top with pots and pans, and
boxes of old photos are slowly collecting dust in the garage. Yet there’s
always something new that needs be put away somewhere. You’re running out of
space, but you can’t make your closets any bigger. Tackle your storage problems
by working smarter and more efficiently. Use It Or Move It If you
haven’t used it in a few months, box it up. This is a good rule of thumb to
help decide between what should stay in the cabinet, and what should be stored
safe and sound in the attic or garage. You don’t have to say goodbye to these
things forever. A properly organized and labeled storage system will make things easy to find
and save you space inside. Box It Up When
you’re packing your things into boxes, remember that you’re planning to get it
out of the box someday. Ensure there’s plenty of bubble wrap or newspaper in
the box to keep your things safe, and tape down the lid to keep out dust. Be
sure to label the
outside of every box. There’s nothing more frustrating than searching for
something in a room of blank, unmarked boxes. Fill up the box. It saves space
in the closet, and a stack of half empty boxes will surely collapse. Although,
make sure they’re not too heavy to carry. Stack To The Ceiling Store
things all the way to the ceiling, this is the key to storage efficiency. Don’t
just pile your things into a wobbly tower.
Maximize the space you do have by putting the most often used items
toward the front and the top, which will ensure they’re easily within reach. Get Creative Some
things just don’t belong in boxes. Hanging clothes can be stored in garment
bags and racks to keep them safe and wrinkle-free.
If you’re moving old furniture to the garage, be sure to fill up any drawers or
cabinets. Turn couches on their ends, and hang bicycles from the ceiling. Before you
make the decision to rent a storage unit or add on to the garage, make sure
you’re getting the most out of the space you have. With a well-organized and thought out storage
system, you’ll be amazed at what you can fit in your closets, attic or garage.
Just be smart when packing things up and work vertically. Call Lisa

"My experience with Idania was simply outstanding. My wife and I were looking for a second home in a very limited geographical area. Idania worked with us on a very personal basis and helped us to understand what we really wanted. Idania is knowledgeable and always available. She would always show up on short notice and take us to see potential homes. It was her local area knowledge and networking that enabled us to purchase our second home. We simply could not have done this without her!”
