Shelving made simple.
Some may be reluctant to add shelving because it just seems too complicated and expensive, but the good news is you can find inexpensive ready-made shelves in just about every department store these days. They’re easy to set up and provide you with a space saving solution for storing things like books, boxes, bins and more.
Your closets are calling
There are a few spaces in your home that are just screaming out for some much needed attention and reorganization. Yes, the closets in your home are prime real estate in terms of storage space and can easily be transformed into a haven for everything you’re trying to hide. Make sure you utilize all the vertical space in your closet efficiently and don’t be afraid to get creative.
Stack it up
If you’re currently staring at a stack of misshapen and dilapidated cardboard boxes, this solution has your name written all over it. Stackable storage bins make it easier than ever to make efficient use of every available space in your home. Empty and transfer the contents of those cardboard boxes into storage bins with labels identifying what’s in each one. That way you’ll always know where to find what you’re looking for.
The very idea of trudging out to the garage and attempting to de-clutter all that’s accumulated over the years can certainly be intimidating, but if you’re desperate for space, there may be no better place to start than the garage. So put on a pair of old clothes and get to work.
