6 Easy storage tips to help you save more space
No matter how much things you’ve discarded but the things you own just can’t seem to fit your closets and drawers? Let us show you the best storage solutions and how to choose the right one for your home.
1 Square containers are always better
Square containers make use of spaces the best. Round containers always leave a few inches on every sides and will never fit flushed against a drawer or a cupboard.
2 Don’t ever skimp on plastic storage containers
If you’re only storing clothes in a closet, you can get the basic containers, but if you’re storing them in an area where they will be exposed to the elements you’re much better off with getting the better-made materials that snoop and nest together.
3 Know where to store your things first
It’s always best to find a suitable storage space before you even start boxing something up for storage. Working backwards will save you lots of time and unnecessary headaches.
4 Watch out for moisture
The most ideal method to fight humidity is to store your belongings in air tight containers. Either a plastic or glass container with a tight-fitting lid will do. Plastic bags are usable, but they’re prone to leakage and degradation, so a proper container is the ideal choice. If your budget is tight, you definitely don’t want to spend your hard-earned cash on plastic bags that degrades easily when you can reuse your glass and plastic storage containers for years to come.
5 Color code your storage containers
If you’re going to store your stuff in boxes, it’s only a matter of time when you find your cupboard full of random boxes that you can’t recognize. Color code your containers so that you can easily tell your belongings apart.
6 Have everything boxed up
Small items that are left unboxed can get dusty and dirty very quickly if it’s left untouched after a period of time. Box everything up, so you don’t have to deal with the tedious job of cleaning up your belongings.
