Often, when you really need an item, the item just disappears somewhere? Most likely, you are “wrong” storing the item, so that the item is difficult to find. Everything is in place. This sentence should be a guide when you store items at home. Meanwhile, you may also need to consider hiring self storage services, if you want to store a lot of important items for a long time.

Here are 5 tips for storing items that can make your home neater and your life easier!

1. Save items based on how often they are used.

Place items that are often used in storage that can be reached by hand and waist level.

Meanwhile, items that are rarely used can be stored in higher or lower places.

Items that are very rarely used should be stored in a place such as a garage, attic, or basement.

2. Group similar items.

This is very easy when you search and save it again. For example, all carpentry tools are used as a storage area.

Likewise with body care products, to handicrafts.

3. Store the items in the right container.

Don’t be tempted to buy a large storage area for various types of goods at once. This only makes it difficult for you to find the items you need.

 Instead, use a small storage container and store it according to the type of item.

4. Label the outside of the container.

It’s best to be specific when labeling. For example, children’s drawing tools.

This seems troublesome in the beginning. But once it’s done, this makes it easier for you later.

5. Store the items based on their area of use

If you’re going to store your shoes, then perhaps the area near the door can be perfect. As for things that can be used for many tasks, such as scissors, glues, and other multifunctional items, we recommend you to store it somewhere near your office and kitchen. However, it’s also not a bad idea to store it in or near your workshop.
