‚Äď CostCo has a number of ottomans and benches that open up to provide wonderful
storage spaces. Rooms
to Go has some nice accent pieces for hallways, kitchens and other rooms with drawers and/or
doors for mail, linens, nick knacks, DVDs, etc. Sam‚Äôs
Club also has some great storage options including chests, accent pieces,
shelves with storage cubes and more. And then there‚Äôs always the custom route. The storage unit in the picture at the top of this blog was

Bedroom storage ‚Äď IKEA (you knew they‚Äôd come up sooner or later) has a whole web page dedicated to bedrooms storage that includes furniture, clothes storage systems within the closet and under-bed storage.

‚Äď Just Google the topic of your choice, put the word ‚Äúblog‚ÄĚ at the end of it
and you should be provided a nice list of articles and blogs by those
willing to share knowledge, experience and resources. A couple of my
favorites include Clean & Sensible‚Äôs The
Top Organizational Projects of 2013and a series titled 31 Days of Organizing
you need help getting started read 7
Steps for Organizing Your Home ‚Äď Without Getting Overwhelmed. And
last but certainly not least ‚Äď Pinterest has tons of ideas, especially (but not
only) for those creative types who enjoy putting together their own
creations. Click on this link to
Pinterest and type ‚Äúorganization‚ÄĚ, ‚Äústorage‚ÄĚ or the topic of your choice in the
search box and you can get lost for hours.
One final thought‚Ä¶organization will
likely help you maintain your home. Clutter
or disorganization can hide or disguise issues that need to be dealt with
sooner rather than later. Being able to see and easily access your space along with the tools and supplies to keep it clean and in good
condition will contribute to your keeping your home maintained. That's important because someday you‚Äôll probably want to sell your home and an organized, well-maintained
home usually sells quicker and has more value to home buyers.
