A great time to tackle that to-do list is when you're stuck at home. While inside you can declutter that storage space and reorganize that spare room. Here's some storage and organization tips that will make your downtime more productive.
When you use boxes of different shapes and sizes, you end up with a pile more than a stack, which can be a mess. Using stackable storage boxes creates neat vertical columns that fit in corners and against walls, leaving more space in garages and basements. Choose heavy-duty boxes for higher stacks and frequent access; medium-duty boxes for moderate stack-ability and occasional access, and basic-duty boxes for use with shelving and infrequent access.
Plastic boxes are ideal for storing just about anything. Safely store (and easily identify) clothes, books, toys, or files in even damp or dirtier areas such as basements, garages, or attics.
Simply throwing away confidential documents is risky. But there's a safe way to eliminate paperwork clutter. Destroy sensitive documents with a home paper shredder for peace of mind and to free up space in your home.
Seasonable storage boxes need to be durable enough to be reusable. Use moving boxes for long-term storage that's also easily accessible. Moving boxes are perfect for hauling seasonal items out of attics or up basement stairs. They're stackable and easy to assemble.
Great labeling practices will help keep you on track with all your household organization. Write clearly. Be specific about what's inside the box. Label on the ends of boxes so you can see at a glance what's in your stackable storage.
