How to Keep Your Storage Unit Organized from the Start
There's a good chance that most residences and businesses in Clark, NJ deal with clutter, whether it's on a desk or in a closet. Unfortunately, many people move their clutter into self storage only to let everything become an unorganized mess over time just like it was before. If you don't want to deal with clutter in your unit, Access Self Storage has a few home and business storage tips for you to keep in mind.
Self Storage Tips for Organizing Your Unit
Start with a plan of action.
Moving your things into storage without a plan is a good way to forget where you’ve put them. Create a list of the items in the unit, and hang it near the door. Group similar items, and leave enough room in the middle so that you can easily grab what you need without having to step over things.
Break down the big stuff.
Break down bigger items such as tables, chairs, and bedding. Once you’ve disassembled everything, move it all to the back of your storage unit. Always place larger items against the wall and out of your way. You can also use shelving to maximize vertical space. If you don’t break down the tables, use them as extra storage space by placing smaller items underneath and on top in an organized fashion.
Label things like you mean it.
It’s easy to lose track of what’s in a box if you don’t label it. Make a habit of labeling every box and container in large print. The larger the print, the easier it will be to read if the box is located higher on a shelf. If you label correctly, you’ll be able to find what you’re looking for just by taking a quick glance.
