Organizing tips for household storage

If you need a little extra space for seasonal items like recreational gear or to keep clutter at bay, a secure, a conveniently located storage space just might be the answer.

While a large storage unit is ideal for moving and storing commercial equipment, you can compare small storage units – ranging in size from  5×5 to 5×10 –  to a large, walk-in closet or small bedroom. Here a few tips to add value and convenience to your investment:

  • Incorporate a shelving unit on one wall.
  • Store items in clear plastic bins so they are easy to see and retrieve.
  • Use a rolling garment rack (available at Target, Home Depot, and Amazon) to hang clothes so they are easy to see and stay wrinkle free.
  • Rolling clothes racks and mobile wire shelving can easily be moved in and out of your unit making access to the other items you have stored much easier.
