The first major step in figuring out how to make the most of your personal storage space is to get things organized. Figure out which belongings you’re currently using, which ones you want to keep for sentimental value, and which ones you can get rid of.
This will give you a great foundation to begin finding the right place for the right things. It’s also important to get rid of at least some your stuff. While we all have sentimental things we hold on to, it all piles up fast.
Once you’ve sorted your stuff, it’s time to find some more space. If you’ve never gone through and organized your clutter, you probably haven’t been making the most of your home space either. Once you’ve decided what you’re going to keep, go through your property and take a look at how much space you’ve already freed up, and how much of what you’re keeping will fit where.
There are few imaginative things you can do to store your stuff around your home that will help you keep it organizes. Labeling your things is a great way to keep order, but color-coding can add an extra element of easy retrieval.
